I've wanted to use that headline for ever...

Triple-A Reno 5 @ Fresno 1.  Edgar Garcia got his first win, throwing seven innings of three-hit ball, with a solo home-run in the final inning the only damage allowed. He walked one and struck out a pair. The Aces gave Garcia all the run support he would need in a two-run third, on RBI by RF Todd Glaesmann and1B Danny Dorn; the latter then doubled the advantage with a two-run homer, his fourth, coming with two outs in the fifth inning. CF Nick Buss had three hits and scored a run, while SS Mike Freeman had a pair of doubles and drove in Reno's last score. DH Nick Evans doubled and walks.

Double-A Mobile 5 @ Biloxi 7. Two big innings doomed the Baybears here. The Shuckers scored three in the fourth off starter Brandon Sinnery, and after he allowed the first two in the sixth to reach, the recently demoted Dominic Leone came in, allowing both inherited runner to score, and a couple more of his own. Sinners was charged with five runs in five innings, on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts. 1B Rudy Flores had two hits and drove in a run for Mobile, while LF Zach Borenstein reached three times on a hit and two walks, driving in and scoring a run, and also stealing his fourth base of the season.

High-A Visalia 3, Lancaster 0. Zach Godley was great again, facing two over the minimum in six innings of work. He allowed two singles and a walk, striking out six, and dropping his season ERA back below two. It was his first W since six straight to start the season, though in the five since, he had allowed two ER or fewer more often than not. All the Rawhide runs came in the third inning, highlighted by 1B Kevin Cron's 13th home-run of the year, a two-run shot. LF Alex Glenn and RF Daniel Palka each had a hit and a walk. The last seven Jethawks outs came by the K; Daniel Gibson threw a 1-2-3 8th, though Nickolas Sarianides loaded the bases in the 9th before getting the save.
