The Aces did get the tying run on base in the sixth, and SS Brandon Drury had two of their six hits, but they had to settle for a late-night split.

He had three hits and drove in three; LF Zach Borenstein also had three RBI, including a two-run homer, his seventh. 1B Rudy Flores reached base four times, on two hits and two walks, but also made a pair of errors.

Schugel threw seven strong innings, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk, with seven strikeouts, and Keith Hessler came in with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth, and left them that way.

A-ball Kane County 6 @ Wisconsin 1. The Cougars jumped out to a three-run lead in the first, and the margin was never less thereafter. RF Chuck Taylor picked up three hits and a stolen base, but was also caught, with CF Colin Bray doubling, singling and also taking a bag, driving in two. SS Ildemaro Vargas and 3B Cody Regis each drew two walks and had a pair of hits. That was more than enough offense for Wei-Chieh Huang, who improved to 4-1 with an ERA of 1.54. However, this wasn't one of his most dominating starts: he allowed one run in five innings, but walked four, with four hits and two strikeouts.

A-short Hillsboro 4 @ Everett 7. The Hops came back twice to tie the game, but after scoring two in the eighth to lock things up at four, immediately gave up three to hand victory to the AquaSox.
