Rylan Cratsenberg hit the team's 58 bomb of the season, his 20th of the year, to break the old mark of 57 that was set in 2017.  The home run in the fifth inning gave Ottawa. 4-0 lead.

Cratsenberg went 2-for-3 at the plate with three RBI and one run scored. Four hurlers combined for the shut out.

The Braves (27-15) play Friday against No. 7 Oklahoma Wesleyan University at Alumni Park.
