Hester's first home run of the night tied the game, 1-1, in the third inning. His homer in the fifth gave the Bees the lead. Matt Young grounded into a force out and Brad Hawpe scored for a 3-1 Bees lead in the sixth inning.

A broken bat RBI single to center by Wallace scored Villar, who got on base with a triple, in the seventh.

RedHawks starting pitcher Brad Peacock (0-1) threw five innings, striking out a season-high nine, and allowed two runs on four hits in the loss.
