The match remained goalless until the bottom line for eighth, when the Buccaneers got three walks to hold the bases. At that point, KeBryan Hayes hit a player to second place that looked like a potential double play at the end. However, Alejo Lopez dodges the transfer, and Hayes manages to overpower his throw for a force from the RBI.
That result was held when David Bednar worked out a perfect ninth-place finish in his seventh save of the season.
