The Travelers took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. After Donnie Walton, Jarred Kelenic and Kyle Lewis walked, Jordan Cowan singled to left to score Walton and Kelenic.

The Travelers increased the lead to 3-0 in the fifth inning when Nick Thurman walked, took second on a wild pitch by Johan Oviedo and third on a passed ball by Rodriguez. He then scored on Kelenic's single.
