Joash Brodin, and Lee Rubin also pitched in with big nights collecting five hits between the two of them. Brodin scored four runs and had two hits, while Rubin drove in a key five runs.

Adam Dominick who was acquired from a trade with Windy City, came in relief for Jeff Fischer and threw three scoreless innings. While he threw Midwest rallied a comeback as Dominick earned his third win of the season.

The Sliders looked like they had a rout in the fifth inning leading 15-6. But the Otters didn’t give up and kept scoring until Arshwin Asjes came on in the ninth to finally end their comeback attempt.
