The Tigers rough day continued in the third, as Michael Rockett and hitting coach Luis Quinones were ejected for arguing balls and strikes and Westmoreland added an RBI double to extened the Spinners lead to 9-0.

Spinners starter Jose Alvarez continued his dazzling season with another stellar performance, pitching six innings, allowing only two hits and striking out eight. He earned his seventh win of the season, tying the Spinners franchise record for wins in a season. Chez Angeloni followed with two innings in relief before Dennis Neuman pitched a scoreless ninth inning.
