Did Gregorius delivered a walk-off 3-run homer for Reno to give the Aces a 10-7 win over Las Vegas. Didi came up in the bottom of the 10th with runners on 1st and 3rd and nobody out and just needed a flyball to win it. Las Vegas brought in an extra infielder and Didi hacked at the first two pitches he saw, fouling both straight back. He looked frustrated for missing both of those, then took a ball before clubbing a curve ball that drifted low and inside deep over the right field wall.

Triple A: Reno 10 Las Vegas 7. Gregorius delivered the big blow in the bottom of the 10th inning following an infield hit by Tyler Bortnick and a perfect bunt single by Ender Inciarte. Jess Todd earned the win with 2 perfect innings of relief. Alex Sanabia started and wasn't very good allowing 6 runs through the first 4 innings. The offense was up to the task with Gregorius picking up 5 RBI and Nick Evans hitting a pair of home runs. Inciarte went 3 for 6 with an RBI.

Double A: Mobile 0 Birmingham 3. Not much to report on here. The offense produced 4 singles and a walk with Jon Griffin getting 2 of them. Bryan Woodall started and was okay allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits and a walk over 5 innings while striking out 6. Bradin Hagens added 3 shutout innings of relief on 1 hit with 3 strikeouts.

High A: Visalia 7 Rancho Cucamonga 4. The Rawhide improved to 11-5 with a come-from-behind effort with 7 runs scored in the 7th and 8th innings. That made a winner of Cody Wheeler who pitched 2 sharp innings of relief with 4 strikeouts. Enrique Burgos pitched a perfect 9th for his 2nd save. The offense was led by Brandon Drury who delivered a 2-run double in the 7th, and Kevin Medrano who clubbed a 2-run triple in the 7th. Drury was 3 for 5 on the night.

A; South Bend 4 @ Quad Cities 3. The Silver Hawks overcame a 2-run deficit in the top of the 9th when Stryker Trahan doubled home Andrew Velazquez with 2 outs and Daniel Palka singled home Trahan. J.R. Bradley pitched the 9th for his 2nd save with some help from Michael Perez who picked off the leadoff hitter who had singled. Palka went 3 for 5 with 3 RBI to lead the offense and Trahan went 2 for 5 though he struck out 3 times. Jamie Westbrook also had 2 hits.
