Michael Reed was 1 for 3 with a home run, 2 RBIs and scored a run.  Orlando Arcia was 3 for 5 with a double and a run scored. He has reached base in 13-straight games.

The Shuckers' bullpen combine to shut down the Generals over three innings.  Mike Strong, Jaye Chapman and Austin Ross pitched well.  Ross secured his first save of the season in his first opportunity.
