In the bottom of the first inning, Bird was walked on his first at bat. Next up was Bird who reached on a force attempt, bringing home teammates Brandon Nimmo and Judge.

Prospect Alex Smith, pitched one inning, entering the game in the top of the sixth. He struck out his first batter, and went on to pitch a clean inning with no hits or runs, but walked one batter.
