Voelker was 5-for-5 with six RBIs and scored five runs, while David finished 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs, a double, four RBIs and scored three runs. Stanke was 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBIs and scored a pair of runs.
For the Rogues, Jason Dumont went 2-for-4 and hit his first home run of the season. Ruben was the only Rogues player to finish with multiple hits, going 2-for-3 with a run scored.
