Ben Bolton relieved Theis, giving up five hits and one run in four and two-thirds innings while recording eight strikeouts and earning the win.

Shane Fisher closed the seventh inning by forcing a ground ball double play.

Offensively, Theis led the team, going 2-for-5 with a single and a double that scored a run. Theis also walked twice, stole two bases and scored three of Truckee’s 12 runs.
