Starting pitcher Randy Leek pitched seven innings (the games were seven innings apiece) to get his 14th win of the season.
In game two, Springfield scored three times in the top of the first, but allowed four runs in the bottom half of the inning and never led again. Designated hitter Rick Ankiel drove in two runs with two outs in that first inning rally.
