The first five-and-a-half innings took only 75 minutes to play, during which time the Bison crept out to a 2-0 lead. A 15-minute rain delay was administered by the umpires as the Cannons came to bat in the bottom of the sixth, but when the storm subsided, the Cannons used seven free passes (6 BB, 1 HBP) and a pair of base hits to carve out seven runs. The Bison, however, returned the favor and pushed across eight runs in the top of the seventh.
Billy Settlemire allowed just one earned run in 6.2 innings of work as his season record fell to 3-3. Settlemire, Michael Smith, Jeff Duggan (2-for-3), Josh Zavislan (two BB) and Ted Jimenez had one RBI apiece.2017 SCHEDULE RESULTS (printable PDF)
