Denove would add two more runs to the Bruin lead with a two-run homer in the top of the seventh frame. It was the catcher's second home run of the weekend and his third round tripper in the last four Bruin games. Denove brought Preston Griffin, who had singled earlier in the frame, across home plate.

Whisler and Denove both drove in three runs, while McCarthy, Denove and Griffin each had two hits.
