Victor Black would work one inning of near perfect relief, allowing one hit and striking out one. Tim Alderson would go the last two innings allowing two hits and striking out three.
Chris Heston would fight to get to six innings allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits, two walks, and five strikeouts. Jake Dunning would get shelled in his only inning of work, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks. Edwin Quirarte would go two innings allowing two hits and one strikeout.
Matt Curry would be the only Altoona hitter to pick up two hits. Ramon Cabrera would drive in two runs as a pinch hitter. Ehire Adrianza, Chris Dominguez, Wes Hodges, and Ryan Cavan would collect the lone hits for Richmond.
