Notes: Juan Oramas was outstanding in tonight’s game. He only allowed 3 base runners over 6 scoreless innings with 7 strikeouts. The Missions were leading 6-0 after Oramas was pulled for reliever Ryan Kelly. Unfortunately, Ryan Kelly and the rest of the bullpen made the game as exciting as they could as they allowed the Travelers to score 5 runs over the next 2 innings. The Missions’ closer, Jeremy McBryde, was the only reliever to not allow a run as he threw a perfect inning and collected his 3rd save of the postseason.
