Triple A: Reno 2 @ Colorado 3 (15 inn). A pitcher's duel erupted in Colorado (of all places) as Reno fought all the way through 15 innings before losing 3-2. Charles Brewer started and was outstanding with 1 run allowed on 5 hits and a walk in 6 innings while striking out 5. A gaggle of Ace relievers took it all the way to the 15th when relief pitcher Garrett Mock delivered an infield single to score the go-ahead run. Evan Marshall came on to try and nail down the save but gave up 5 hits and a walk to hand the game to the Sky Sox. Chris Owings had 3 hits including 2 doubles. Taylor Harbin and Tyler Kuhn each added a pair of singles.
Double A: Mobile 6 @ Mississippi 5. The Mobile offense couldn't solve Braves prospect Alex Wood as he tossed 5 innings of 1-hit shutout ball. But they came alive against the Braves' bullpen scoring 2 in the 7th and 4 in the 8th for the one-run victory. Anthony Meo started and got roughed up some as he could only get through 4 innings while allowing 4 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks. Brent Clevlen delivered the decisive blow with a 2-run homer with 2 outs in the 8th inning to take the lead. Kevin Munson pitched 2 stellar innings of relief to earn his first save of the year. Jon Griffin went 3 for 3 with a triple.
High A: Visalia 2 San Jose 6. Not a good night for the Rawhide as starter Keith Hessler surrendered 4 runs through 5 innings while the offense was only able to manage 4 hits. On the bright side Seth Simmons pitched 3 scoreless innings in relief allowing no hits or walks while striking out 4.
Low A: South Bend 6 Bowling Green 5. The Silver Hawks conducted a furious late rally with 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to eke out a one-run, come-from-behind victory. Kyle Schepel started and was fairly effective holding Bowling Green to 3 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks over 6 innings while striking out 5. The game looked out of reach when J.R. Bradley came on in the 8th and surrendered 2 more runs to make it 5-1. But back-to-back 2-out doubles by Frazier Hall and Roidany Aguila plated the last of 5 runs in the inning to make Bradley the winner. Hall had 2 hits on the night with 3 RBI. Socrates Brito had 2 more hits including a triple and an RBI. And Kevin Medrano picked up where he left off last year with his usual multi-hit game consisting of a pair of singles.
