On Sunday, starting pitcher Tristen Pendley (2-1) hurled seven strong innings, allowing just six hits and two runs. Jimmy Johnson pitched the eighth and allowed only a hit, while striking out one.

Tyler Adams got his seventh save despite giving up two hits and a run in in the ninth.

Dylan Mecham and Alex Bell had doubles for the Pump Jacks.

Anthony Donovan, Mecham, Tyler Moore and James Lear each had two hits.

T.J. Friedl, Weston Pitts, Bell and Tristan Clarke had one hit apiece.

Lear stole his 21st base this season.
