Hillsboro 0, Boise 3: The Hops and Hawks pitched each other to a deadlock through the first eight scoreless innings, but Boise scored three in the ninth for the victory. Aaron Blair (four innings), Chase Stevens (two) and Jimmy Sherfly (one) combined for the front seven, and after a scoreless eighth, J.R. Bradley had an ugly ninth, with two hits, two walks and a pair of wild pitches. Hillsboro were held to three hits, two of those coming of the bat of designated hitter Yogey Perez-Ramos.
DSL D-backs 4, DSL Padres 5: In this seven-inning game, the D-backs had a 4-1 lead at the middle of the sixth, but allowed the Padres to score two in the sixth and two more in the seventh to walk off winners. Merkis Montero allowed three hits and three walks in 5.2 innings, and was charged with three runs, one unearned; Juan Rodriguez took the loss. 3B Vicson Grasiano led the offense, reaching base safely all four times he was up, with two hits and a pair of walks, improving his average to .328.
DSL D-backs 2, DSL Padres 3: Poor defense condemned the D-backs to defeat in their other game, as four errors led to two unearned runs, with our prospects again blowing a late lead. Anderson Placido struck out 11 over six innings of three-hit ball, but was tagged with those unearned runs in the sixth, which he'd entered with a 1-0 lead. The D-backs were highly active on the bags, stealing five bases, but went 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position, and had only three hits overall. .
