L- Adam Whitt (2-2)

L- Jose Abreu (0-2)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros scored 2 in the 6th to tie and 2 in the 7th to take the lead, and eventually, the first game of this twinbill, which was in a rain delay for a while.

Daz Cameron opened the scoring in the 3rd when he ripped an RBI triple, although he got thrown out at the plate trying to turn that into an inside-the-park homer. Myles Straw hit a sac fly in the 6th, and Brauly Mejia later added an RBI double. Daz found himself at the center of another Greeneville run-scoring play as he reached on an error that allowed Ford Stainback and Straw to score the go-ahead runs in the 7th inning.

Jose Hernandez went 4 innings and allowed a run on a sac fly in the 4th, a double that also occurred in the 4th, and struck out 1. Cris Santamaria allowed a 2-run homer to Kamran Young in the 5th, which was the only hit he allowed in 1.2 innings. He walked 3 and fanned 2.

Osvaldo Duarte opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 2nd inning. Myles Straw finished 3-3 with 2 doubles and an RBI single in the 5th.

Yhoan Acosta allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 5 innings. Alejandro Solarte threw a scoreless 6th, but the 2 runs in the 7th that won the game for Elizabethton were inherited runners that were charged to him. He walked 2 and struck out 1. Starlyng Sanchez allowed the walk-off 2-run single with 2 outs in the 7th.

Salvador Montaño will start the lone home game of this series, which will begin at 7:00 Eastern.
