The Jammers were blanked by Joely Rodriguez (3-1) until scoring two runs in the fourth.
Michael Main led off with a double and Cody Keefer singled him home. Jesus Solorzano singled, but was out trying for second on a throw by right fielder Jesus Vasquez. Viosergy Rosa hit a double to bring in Keefer.
