Steelheads Score Late, Top Explorers, 4-2
The Idaho Steelheads faced a tough opponent in Oregon pitcher Rodrigo Gómez, but did just enough to pull out the victory at Multnomah Stadium by a final score of 4-2. Gómez went 7 innings and allowed 1 earned run. José Meléndez was the winning pitcher. Over 8 innings, he allowed 2 runs on 7 hits, with no walks and 4 strikeouts. The Explorers fall to 8-10 and continue their wobbly start to the 2042 season.

The game was at a stalemate until center fielder Octávio Benítez came to bat in the top of the ninth. Facing Oregon pitcher Nelson Juhl, he hit a full count fastball for a 2-run single. It was a game-changer, putting Idaho on top, 4-2.

Benítez told the Idaho Daily News: "I was born for the big stage."
