Great Lakes reliever's Mark Pope (H-5, 1.81 ERA) and Victor Araujo (H-6, 1.32 ERA) pitched the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings, teaming up for their fifth and sixth “hold's” of the season respectively. The pair gave up a combined 1-run, on 3-hits, 2-BB, while striking out 5-batters through 3-innings of work.
