The Aces scored 2 runs in the top of the 9th inning to pull out a 1-run victory on Alfredo Marte's 2-run single. Charles Brewer had a great start going 7 strong innings allowing 1 run on 6 hits and a walk while striking out 7. The offense did nothing until the late heroics picking up just 5 hits on the night. David Hernandez got the save with a scoreless 9th.
Double A: Mobile 2 Pensacola 1.
Mobile won by the exact same score as Reno with one of their runs coming on a solo home run by Dustin martin. Bradin Hagens was the star of the show with 7 solid innings allowing just one unearned run on 6 hits. The offense was led by Martin's homer and Keon Broxton
who went 2 for with a double and a run scored. Willy Paredes tackled the 8th with 2 strikeouts and Jake Barrett pitched the 9th with 2 strikeouts for his 14th save. Barrett now sports a 0.38 ERA since being called up to Mobile.
High A: Visalia 1 @ San Jose 11. T
he Rawhide got waxed as Brad Allen's second start in the California League didn't go nearly as well as the first as he got knocked out in the 4th after surrendering 9 earned runs. The offense produced just 5 singles and no walks for the game.
Low A: South Bend 3 @ Bowling Green 5.
The defense was abysmal in support of Aaron Blair who left with one out in the 6th having allowed 5 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits but no walks. The Silver Hawks defense had 5 errors for the game. South Bend was another team with just 5 singles.
Short Season A: Hillsboro 9 Eugene 2.
The Hops finally got a laugher as they scored 7 runs before the 4th inning was over. Zach Esquerra did some damage going 2 for 5 with a double and a home run. Ryan Doran was good on the mound going 6+ innings allowing 2 runs on 7 hits.
Rookie: Missoula 5 @ Helena 7
. Carlos Hernandez had a so-so start allowing 4 runs (3 earned) and Jency Solis gave up 3 more in the 7th. The Osprey had just 5 hits (another one) but they collected 9 walks.
AZl Rookie: Dbacks 1 Cubs 10
. In the team's final game of the season, and a must-win to have any chance of getting into the playoffs, the Dbacks laid an egg and got walloped by the Cubs
. Dallas Newton gave up 5 runs though just 1 was earned, as the defense committed 3 errors, 2 by Newton. Guess how many hits the Dbacks had...right exactly 5.
