Relievers Richard Alvarez (2-2) and Alec Asher kept the Volcanoes hitless the rest of the way, with Asher striking out four of the six batters he faced to earn his third save.
Salem-Keizer scored its two runs in the first inning. In addition to their only hit, the Volcanoes were helped by two errors, a walk and a hit batter in the inning.
