3 Stars: Danny Worth, Reno 5 for 5, 1 R, 1 DBL
2 Stars: Danny Dorn, Reno 4 for 5, 1 RBI
1 Star: Ildemarro Vargas, Kane County 2 for 4, 2 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI
0 Stars: Braden Shipley, Mobile 4.2 IP, 8 H, 4 BB, 2 K, 5 ER, L (2-5)
AAA: Reno 5 @ Las Vegas 10. The Aces got behind early, got further behind late and pretty much got blown out. Caleb Clay gave up 4 runs in 5 innings, Keith Hessler gave up 4 runs in a third of an inning and the offense didn't get going until it was too late. Danny Worth and Danny Dorn combined to go 9 for 10 but that only resulted in one run and one RBI.
AA: Mobile 2 Jackson 7. After a couple of good outings Braden Shipley put up another stinker allowing 5 runs on 8 hits and 4 walks in 4.1 innings. He's carrying a pretty gaudy 4.79 ERA and has some work to do to regain his form. The offense had 9 hits and 3 walks but couldn't string anything together. Tom Belza, Rudy Flores and Mitch Haniger each went 2 for 4 with a double.
A+: Visalia 1 @ Inland Empire 5. Anthony Banda was below par allowing 4 runs over 6 innings, though he allowed just 5 hits, walked one and struck out 6. The offense was really bad with just 3 hits and a late run following a Kevin Medrano triple.
A: Kane County 7 @ Lake County 8. The Cougars looked to have this one in the bag until they tried to extend Jency Solis an extra inning late with a 7-4 lead. He proceeded to load the bases, Zac Curtis got the call and promptly served up a grand slam. Touki Toussaint started and did well early on and once again struggled a bit as he stretched out. He got through 6 innings allowing 4 runs overall, 3 of them in the 5th and 6th innings. The offense cranked out 16 hits but just one of them was for extra bases.They left 14 men on base. Cody Regis and Colin Bray led the way with 3 hits each.
