The Falcons scored in the top of the first on an Irlbeck RBI single. Irlbeck added an run-scoring groundout in the fifth.

In the top of the seventh, the Falcons added two insurance runs on a run-scoring balk and a wild pitch.

Luke Willhite and Irlbeck combined for four of the Falcons’ five hits in the win.
