In the bottom of the third, the JetHawks picked up a pair of runs to tie the game. Yonathan Daza and Wes Rogers walked to open the inning. They each advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Chris Rabago. With two out, Garrett Hampson delivered a two-run single, his second hit of the game.
Chris Mathewson (1-0) earned the win in relief for the Quakes. He allowed one run and struck out three in three innings out of the bullpen. JetHawks starter Peter Lambert (0-3) suffered the loss. He went five-plus innings and surrendered eight runs on seven hits.
Yonathan Daza saw his nine-game hitting streak come to an end, the longest on the club in 2017. He hit .447 with six doubles during the streak. Brian Mundell’s eight game hitting streak was also snapped.
