Call it a brutal night all the way around.

The win gave Memorial a sweep of the two-game series and dropped the Millers to 9-6 overall. Memorial won the first game 10-4.
Yukon managed only three hits on Tuesday and found themselves in an early hole. Memorial scored three runs in the first and two more in the second to take a 5-1 lead.
The Millers did cut the lead to 3-1 in the first when Carson Schultz scored as Jacob Russell reached on an error. Schultz was hit by a pitch and moved to third after stealing two bases.
Yukon cut the lead to 5-2 in the second and had a chance to put a bigger rally together. The Millers loaded the bases with two out and scored a run on a bases loaded walk to Schultz. The rally ended there as the next batter struck out.
Trailing 6-2, the Millers again tried to get a rally started in the bottom of the fourth. Yukon had two runners on and scored a run as Remy Plattner raced home on a passed ball, 6-3.
