The Railcats took the series finale on Sunday to win two out of three games against the Redhawks. The Railcats scored early, putting a run on the board with a RBI groundout in the second inning.

The big play of the fifth was a two-run double from LF Anthony Cheky Jr. The double put Gary up 4-0, as they went on to score one more run in the inning. Torres-Perez (4-0) spun a gem, going seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and striking out six batters.
