Greene used an impressive mix of pitches, most notably his fastball, to brush back opposing hitters. Although he allowed 10 hits, he kept the Falcons at bay by escaping situations with runners-on-board by letting his defense make plays for him. Greene walked three and struck out two during his time on the mound before giving way to the bullpen.
The bullpen surrendered three runs in the eighth, but J.J. McLeod came in and earned the save.
The Bellingham bats lit up early in the game similar to opening night, knocking in four runs in the first four innings, two of which came off a fourth inning, two-RBI double by second baseman Frank Desico. When the Bells back was against the wall with a narrow 4-3 lead in the eighth, it was returning outfielder Brady Locker who hit a sacrifice fly to bring home the insurance run.
