The Wranglers defeated the Highlanders 3-2 in the nightcap.

Cisco got on the board with one run in the top of the first as Rodriguez doubled, moved to third on a single by Moreno and scored on a ground out by Gibert.

Dalton Vannatta's solo home run in the bottom of the first tied the game.

The Wranglers added two runs in the fourth. Jake Armstrong and Mark Davis both singled. Eric Tate drew a walk to load the bases. Armstrong scored on a single by Corey Taylor and Davis scored on a single by Herrington.
