Rome 3, Augusta 5
- M. Lipka SS 1-4, RBI, .174 AVG

Edward Salcedo stole his third base of the short season, but he also made his second error, a throwing error that led to a run scoring. The runner advanced to second on a Carlos Perez balk then scored on a triple. Perez was shaky, allowing a pair of unearned runs in the third and back to back homers in the fifth. Tyler Hess was great in relief, allowing just an unearned run over 3 innings.
