AAA: Reno 11 Salt Lake 1. Caleb Clay was very good holding Salt Lake to 1 run over 7 innings and the offense turned it into a laugher when Nick Evans hit a grand slam in the 3rd inning. They followed up the 6-run 3rd with 4 more in the 4th. Evans had 6 RBI on the night. Mike Freeman had 2 hits and 3 RBI.
AA: Mobile 9 Birmingham 10. The BayBears fought back time and again in the early going behind Zach Borenstein's cycle night but it proved not enough when the bullpen gave up 3 runs in the 8th.

Seth Simmons provided 3 innings of scoreless relief to allow for the comeback before Jimmie Sherfy and Keith Hessler combined for the evil 8th.
A+: Visalia 4 San Jose 5. The Rawhide tussled into the 11th before falling 5-4. Anthony Banda wasn't his best allowing 4 runs over 5 innings.

The bullpens battled from there with a notable appearance by David Hernandez who pitched a scoreless 6th with a strikeout. Four other relievrs followed with 4 shutout innings before Ryan Doran gave up the go-ahead run in the 11th. Steve McQuail had 2 hits with a double.
A: Kane County 4 @ Wisconsin 2. Brent Jones was solid though a bit wild allowing 1 run over 5 innings on 5 hits and 4 walks while striking out 6.
