Yoan Moncada adds another solo homer in the 4th, then Mike Yastrzemski doubles home two in the fifth to make it 5-0.

L: Eli Morgan (1-10)

HR: VIR- none; FRE- Yoan Moncada (8), Mike Yastrzemski (11)

Fremont gets it back square with a run in the first and solo homer from Manuel Margot in the second. Yulieski Gurriel’s run-scoring single in the 4th puts Fremont on top, but Rafael Devers puts Virginia back in the lead with 2-run HR in the fifth.

Anthony Bender has a rough eight, with a leadoff walk followed by 2 HBP and an ejection. Virginia makes him pay by scoring two to go up 6-3. J.T. Chargois comes on for the save, but walks two after recording two outs to bring Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani brings the home crowd to its feet with a game-tying 3-run homer.

In the tenth, Jackie Bradley Jr. singles, then steals second. An errant throw from Kyle Higashioka keeps Bradley running all the way to third.
