Ethan Woitas got the ball rolling for the Canadians offensively with a single and a stolen base in the third inning. He came around to score on a Dane Roy ground ball.

In the fourth Woitas hit a two-run single to drive in Sean Lougheed and Blake Dixon to give them a 3-0 lead.

In the sixth Brett Friesen hit a two-run double to drive in Dixon and Joel Jordison.

The Giants led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning when they broke the game open with a two-out rally.

Tyler Kieferling, Rob Hillier and Nick Davis hit RBI singles to along with three walks and an error that helped spark the six-run rally.

The Giants finished the game with four hits, but used four errors, five walks and some smart base-running to capitalize on their chances.
