Addison Russell started the ballgame for the Bees (67-66, 35-29) and doubled into the right field corner on the first pitch of the contest from Kyle Smith (4-3). Russell scored when Max Muncy cracked a double off the wall in center field, giving the Bees a 1-0 advantage. Russell was in the mix again in the second as he singled home Aaron Shipman, putting the Bees up by a pair.
