Bees get a leadoff double by Hosmer in the 6th. With Hosmer going to 3rd on a wild pitch with the infield in, Braun hits a grounder that goes to Fielding 3, so the run scores and the batter is safe.

Game 2; Fernandez vs Arrieta; scoreless until the top of the 5th when Brantley leads off with a walk. With 2 outs, Kiermaier triples him in. The Plague get another run in the 7th. With 1 out, they get back-to-back doubles. Both pitchers pitch complete games and The Plague win 2-0.
Game 3; Ramirez vs Bumgarner; Bumgarner goes 6.2 innings of 1 hit ball and gets pulled with a runner on second, but the Bees bullpen holds The Plague thru 9 innings. In the bottom of the 9th, Lind leads off with a single (his only hit in series). Braun runs for him and steals second. With 2 outs, Beltre hits a single that scores Braun from second for a 1-0 Bees win.
Bees record at 24-18.
Bees hit under .200 for series with no HR.
