The ValleyCats' offensive explosion was lead by Luis Encarnacion who went 2-for-4 with 5 RBI, including a two-run home run. Houston Astros 1st round pick, Seth Beer was very impressive in his professional debut going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a home run. Kyle Davis also added a home run in the win. 

ValleyCats' starting pitcher Chad Donato allowed an early first inning run but settled in and shut down Vermont rest of the way. Donato allowed one run and three hits while striking out six batters over six innings of work.  

Payton Squier drove in the lone Lake Monster run on the night.
