Triple-A Reno 6 @ Omaha 9. A five-run fourth off Justin Marks proved decisive, as the Aces dropped their fourth straight. Marks was lifted with two outs, immediately after a three-run homer, and was charged with five runs on just three hits, with three walks and three K's. Evan Marshall also struggled, giving up three runs on four hits and a walk in the seventh, and has a Reno ERA of 14.54. 2B Garrett Weber picked up three hits, while there were two hits by LF Nick Evans (including his sixth homer of the year), DH Jarrod Saltalamacchia (including his first homer) and, inevitably, 1B Danny Dorn. It was Dorn's 15th multi-hit game in 18 appearances. dropping his average to .522.
Double-A Mobile vs. Chattanooga. Rain delayed the start of this one, which was then suspended with two outs in the top of the third, and the Lookouts two up over the BayBears, after what looks like a power failure. It'll be completed tomorrow.

High-A Visalia 5 @ Lake Elsinore 7. Anthony Banda blew chunks tonight: seven batters faced, one retired, with the other six all scoring in the first inning. The left-hander's ERA ballooned from 3.97 to 5.12 as a result. There wasn't much any team could do after that, through credit the Rawhide for doing their best, and making a game of it - in particular, the bullpen of Ryan Doran, Bud Jeter and Kevin Vance allowed one run over the 7.2 subsequent innings. SS Fidel Pena had four hits, including a double, scoring twice, anc C Michael Perez had two hits and a walk, driving in a pair and also stealing his first base of the year. But it was just too big a hole to escape.
A-ball Kane County 5 @ Beloit 6 The Cougar looked to be cruising to victory, after opening up a five-run lead by the middle of the second inning. But it was all gone by the end of the fourth, as the Snappers took it to Brent Jones, charged with six runs (five earned) in four innings, on five hits and two walks with a strikeout. The two bullpens then locked things down, each throwing four scoreless frames, Tom Jameson scattering three hits and a walk over three innings for Kane County. SS Ryan Gebhardt had three hits, LF Cody Regis and 1B Marty Herum picked up two apiece, while 3B Joe Munoz walked twice and stole a base.
