Bees 33-year-old designated hitter Brad Hawpe, who slammed 118 homers for the Colorado Rockies earlier in his career, went 3-for-5 with five RBIs. Hawpe's two-run single highlighted a three-run eighth. Hawpe added a three-run homer in the Bees' five-run ninth.

The RedHawks compiled only five hits but led 3-1 heading into the eighth on a Brandon Laird RBI double in the first, Marc Krauss' RBI single in the fifth and Che-Hsuan Lin manufacturing a run in the sixth.
