He reached base on a three base error on a dropped flyball in centerfield. Profar's triple came in the 1st inning, and was followed up by a homerun for Mike Olt. Olt finished the game 1 for 3 with the homerun, 2 RBI, 2 runs, and a walk. His homerun off Andrew Werner was his second homerun this season off of left handed pitchers. Olt currently leads the team with homeruns overall with 5. Over their last 10 games, Olt and Profar have combined for 12 extra base hits.
