The game winner was a single by Robinzon Diaz and prior to that, Deik Scram singled home Maxwell Leon to tie the game up.

Alfredo Figaro was roughed up in his start but the hitters bailed him out. He gave up five runs (four earned) in six innings. Robbie Weinhardt threw three shutout innings to close out the game and he improved to 1-0.
The Whitecaps took a 5-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth but when the dust settled, they took a 6-5 loss because of a rough outing by Melvin Mercedes.

B rayan Villarreal took the loss and he fell to 2-3. He gave up four runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings.
The SeaWolves never had the lead in their contest with Trenton until the final at bat of the game when Max St. Pierre put a two run homer over the fence to give Erie a big 4-3 win.
