Colin Barber led off the game with a single but was thrown out at second by Brian Parreira. Glenallen Hill Jr. kept the momentum going as blasted a solo shot to right field to give the Deep Dish the early 1-0.

In the bottom half, the slammers were able to rebound big. After a leadoff walk, Zach Kirtley scorched a double of the “400 ft” mark in the center field to tie the game 1-1. Two batters later, Noah Vaughn drove in Kirtley with a single to right field. He gave the Slammers a 2-1 lead. The Slammers loaded the bases with two outs.

For Deep Dish, Vladimir Nunez struggled on the mound and walked in a run before striking out the nine hitters. At the end of the 1st inning, the Slammers led 3-1. Deep Dish put up another run in the 2nd inning to get back within one run. After two innings, the Slammers had extended their lead to 4-2. After a quick 3rd inning, the Deep Dish jumped back within one after a leadoff double from Erik Ostberg and RBI-single from Eddie Haus.

Cameron Auferheid limited the damage as he struck out the final two batters. The final score of the game remained 11-3. The Deep dish scored 3 runs, on 10 hits, with 2 errors. The Slammers scored 11 runs, on 9 hits, and 1 error. The Slammers went to 2-1 while the Deep Dish fell to 1-2.
