Henry Martinez (3-3) picked up his third victory of the season as he shut down the Lasers over 8 innings while allowing just 6 hits and striking out 9 batters. Jake Mahood relieved Martinez in the ninth inning as he picked up his second save of the season. Trevor Fonseca (2-for-3, 2 RBI) and Chase Sebby (0-for-2, RBI) led the Chargers offense.
John Stevens (4-3) received the loss for the Lasers as he pitched 8 innings while allowing 3 runs on 7 hits and striking out 2.
The Chargers looked to add to their lead in the bottom of the seventh inning as Paul Gomez (1-for-3) started the inning with a single. Ortiz then singled to give the Chargers two runners on and nobody out. Calvert proceeded to bunt both runners into scoring position. Fonseca then lashed a single into center field to give the Chargers a 3-0 lead that they would not relinquish.
