-Denzel Clarke (Pickering, ON) got things going in the sixth as he entered the game as a pinch hitter and single, stole second and advanced to third on a passed ball. An Astros balk then brought Clarke in from third and the juniors trailed, 8-2.

-In the seventh, Dondrae Bremner reached on an error and scored on an ensuing error to make it 8-3, however, the Astros scored three in the ninth, coming off reliever Cade Smith (Abbotsford, BC), on an error, two hits and three walks.
