The Senators took the lead for good by scoring 2 runs on 4 hits in the top of the 2nd. The first four batters hit safely, with Sam Judah providing a RBI-double and Charlie Lester hitting a RBI-single.
Williams then led off the bottom of the 2nd with a solo home run, but the Rams could not push across another run against Cook.
While the opener was a pitchers' duel, the finale saw AUM pound out 15 hits to win 7-3. Cody Hall threw 129 pitches in the complete-game win for the Senators, holding the Rams to 2 earned runs on 7 hits, while fanning 11.
