In game one, the Millers defeated the Arkansas Pirates 13-12 in a scoring parade.
Yukon didn’t take its first lead in the contest until the bottom of the sixth inning, when the Millers rattled off three runs to take the 13-12 lead on a sacrifice fly from Jett Lodes that plated Remy Plattner.
Cody Pfieffer earned the win with three innings of only giving up one run on two hits.
Hunter Brown and Lodes combined for four innings and gave up 11 earned runs on 10 hits and five walks.
Carson Benge and Kobe Flow needed only 95 pitches to earn a combined shutout against the Sandlot in game two.
Benge earned the win, due to starting and collecting four innings on the mound during the Millers 8-0 victory.
Carson Lee connected on a two-run home run in the third inning for Yukon’s lone home run.
Lee and Benge tied for a game high three runs-batted-in, each going 2-for-3.
