Triple-A Reno 9, Tacoma 5. Not the best start for Gabriel Arias - five runs over six innings, on seven hits and a walk, with three K's - but he stuck around just long enough. For in the bottom of the sixth, the Aces scored four on a pair of two-run, two-out homers by LF Jamie Romak (#17) and CF Todd Glaesmann (#8), to take the lead. It was Glaesmann's second of the night, having also had a two-run shot in the fourth and adding a single, 1B Danny Dorn had three hits and scored three, with 3B Brandon Drury and 2B Jordan Pacheco each getting two hits and a walk. Matt Stites pitched two scoreless frames of relief.

Double-A Mobile 2 @ Jacksonville 7. Having struck out 22 in his previous three outings, Blayne Weller didn't get a K here, for the first time since becoming a starter in May last year. He allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks, over 5.1 innings. Jimmie Sherfy allowed the other three runs in his inning of work, before the BayBears added some respectability to the score with tallies in the eighth and ninth. Mobile C Ronnie Freeman had three hits, but was the only BayBear to reach base safely more than once in this game.

High-A Visalia 9 @ Stockton 2. 1B Kevin Cron's 18th home-run of the year helped propel the Rawhide to a three-run first. Though the Ports came back to make it a one-run game, a four-run seventh let Visalia roar away - Stryker Trahan's fifth homer was a three-run shot in that inning, and Jamie Westbrook had his ninth HR of the year, a solo shot in the fifth. Westbrook also singled, one of four Rawhide batters with a multi-hit night. Brandon Sinnery held the Ports to four hits and no walks over six innings of two-run ball, fanning five. J.R. Bradley retired all six batters he faced, two of them by strikeout.

A-ball Kane County 13, Wisconsin 2. The Cougars continued to roll: the score is also their second-half record, and they outscored the Timber Rattlers in this four-game series by 25 runs, even though they lost one of them! Wisconsin actually scored first, getting two off Chris Oliver in the first, but KC scored eight by the end of the second. Oliver went six, with one of those two runs earned, on eight hits and a walk with five K's. 1B Marty Herum and 2B Henry Castillo both had four hits and drove in four, Castillo notching his first HR of the year. 3B Joe Munoz had four hits and a stolen-base.

A-short Hillsboro 2, Spokane 1. Tyler Bolton was in excellent form this evening, spinning six shutout innings, giving up only a pair of singles and walking none, striking out six. He left with a 1-0 lead, the Hops having taken the lead on a single by CF Zach Nehri in the third. However, it wasn't enough for a win as Kevin Simmons allowed a run in the seventh. But in the eighth, consecutive HBP of RF Stephen Dezzi and 1B Trevor Mitsui loaded the bases and then brought home the go-ahead run. Ryan Burr, who came in with the bases loaded and one down in the eighth, stranding the runners, got the last five outs for the W.

Rookie Missoula 2, Ogden 6. The Raptors scored four in the fourth off Osprey starter Dallas Newton, breaking a 1-1 tie and cruising to victory. Newton gave up five runs (four earned) in five innings, on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Cody Clark pitched well in relief, fanning four of six batters faced over two hitless innings. SS Isan Diaz had half of Missoula's eight hits, including a triple, and also had a stolen base, but was caught stealing as well. CF Joey Armstrong reached safely three times, on a hit and a pair of walks.
