Michael Antonio keyed Kane County's high-powered offense by going 2-for-5 with a double and 3 RBI.

Kyle Smith benefitted from all the offense but only lasted 4 innings while blanking the Bees (37-40, 5-3) on 4 hits.

Andrew Triggs (1-0) relieved Smith in the fifth and worked the final 5 innings while giving up just 1 run. Triggs fanned five and coughed up 5 hits en route to picking up the first win of his professional career.

The Cougars made an error in the ninth inning which kept them short of a team-high third straight game without an error.
