The Chinooks would elect to bring in Jacob Richardson to come in and pinch hit and he would send a fly ball over the centerfield wall for the two-out two-run walk off homer.

The Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Player of the game was Michael Bohlke. It was his second start in a row receiving the honor.
