EME once again led the Defenders' offense.  He was one of four Defenders with two hits each, one of which was his 2nd HR of the series.  Boyer also homered.  Bond reached base three times, as both he and EME are batting .500 or better through the first two games.  Ramos, who entered the season ranked among the Twins' top five prospects and who had an OPS close to .800 this year in 205 AB, had a big game with four hits, including a HR and a double.

Maday, who had a 4.25 ERA during the regular season, allowed 5 R on 7 H in 4.0 IP.  Aside from allowing one of two runners in herited from Maday to score, Hinshaw pitched a scoreless 5th and 6th inning to be credited with the win.

Martinez had three hits, including his third post-season double in four games, pacing the Volcanoes' eleven-hit attack.  He batted .500 in four playoff games.  Anders led reached base four times, including two singles that made him just one of two Volcanoes with an AVG above .265 in the post-season.  Lollis was a third Volcano with a multi-hit line.  Dominguez may be the best hitting prospect on the Volcanoes, but he was the only Volcano without a hit in the final game.  He struck out twice and twice ground into double plays, and finished the series just 1 for 19.

The older Bucardo brother allowed just 1 ER in 5.0 IP.  Quinowski had a presumable career high 8 K, while facing 11 batters.  Stoffell pitched three scoreless innings.  After Bucardo allowed a run in the 1st inning, Moran finished a string of twelve scoreless innings by four Volcanoes pitchers.
