Kittle enjoyed a big day at the plate. He belted a three-run homer in the 2nd inning, lashed a single bringing in a run in the 3rd inning and doubled bringing in two baserunners in the 8th inning. Chicago bats were very productive in the 2nd inning which saw them plate 7 runs on 6 hits and the 3rd inning when they had 5 runs on 6 hits. Chicago dominated offensively as they scored in 6 different innings.
Gene Nelson(8-8) was the winner allowing 3 runs in 7 and 1/3 innings. Chris Codiroli(3-9) suffered the loss.
