- Angus (1) pitched the fourth inning, allowing only one run.
- The Jays mounted a come-back in the bottom of the fourth with the tying runs on base: Cam (8) and Sarah (2) on the corners at third and first when Royals first baseman Zack (15) made a great catch to end the game.
- Royals starter Arlo (8) throws one inning of no hit ball with two nasty knuckleballs.
