Hefner pitched six innings giving up four runs with three of them earned on seven hits, He also had three strikeouts to make his record 1-3. His earned run average was 5.32 as of Sunday. He had two at bats going O-1 officially. He laid down a sacrifice bunt during his first trip to the plate in the third inning. The bunt advanced Omar Quintanilla to second base.
