Brooklyn added more in the Top of the 8th off reliever David Speer. John Mora & Amed Rosario led off with back-to-back singles. Michael Conforto singled to right, scoring Mora and moving Rosario to 3rd. Urena hit a sacrifice fly to right that score Rosario and moved Conforto to 2nd. Tyler Moore walked to make it 1st & 2nd. Tomas Nido singled to center, scoring Conforto. Ramon Rodriguez came in to relieve Speer. Speer got out of the inning by getting Michael Bernal to pop out & Jeff Diehl to hit into a 6-4 force out.
