Triple-A Reno 17 @ Colorado Spring 11. 36 hits, 28 runs, nine walks, three errors, three wild pitches. Those were the totals here. CF Mike Freeman reached base six times on four hits and two walks, LF Danny Dorn and SS Brandon Drury each finished a triple short of the cycle, getting four hits and a walk and five hits respectively. RF Peter O'Brien had three hits including a three-run homer, while 2B Jordan Pacheco had three hits and a walk, scoring a trio of runs. There were pitchers too, but some names will be redacted to protect them. Seth Simmons and Kevin Munson each worked two scoreless.
Double-A Mobile 4 @ Jacksonville 7. John Omahen tossed six scoreless innings and left with a two-run lead, but the BayBears bullpen imploded, allowing seven runs on six hits and two walks over the final three innings. Omahen gave up only two hits and four walks, striking out three, but Will Locante and Jake Barrett combined to pitch a five-run seventh. SS Jack Reinheimer had three hits, both driving in and scoring a run for Mobile, while CF Evan Marzilli drew a pair of walks and also stole two bases.
High-A Visalia 6, Modesto 4. 1B Kevin Cron hit his 25th home-run of the year in the sixth, a two-run shot that drove in the tying and go-ahead runs for the Rawhide. Not to be outdone, RF Daniel Palka his his 23rd, also a two-run shot, while CF Alex Glenn and C Tyler Baker added solo shots, #7 and #2 respectively. All bar Cron also singled, with Cron and Glenn walking. Blake Perry got the win, scattering nine hits and two walks over 6.1 innings, allowing four runs with three strikeouts. The bullpen worked 2.2 scoreless, Steve Hathaway picking up his first save.
A-ball Kane County 1 @ Cedar Rapids 0. Can't be many times a team sends one batter above the minimum to the plate, and still wins! For LF Chuck Taylor was hit by a pitch to lead off the game, scored one out later, and that was it: no more scoring or men left on base for them. Josh Taylor got the W for six shutout innings of five-hit ball, with one walk and five strikeouts; Jency Solis, Ryan Burr and Luis Ramirez completed the six-hitter, with Ramirez notching his seventh save for the Cougars. The visitors were held to only three hits, with two double-plays and a caught stealing; that run-scoring groundout in the first by DH Cody Regis was their only AB with runners in scoring position.
A-short Hillsboro 5 @ Salem-Kaizer 4. Trevor Mitsui's seventh home-run of the year tied things up in the eighth, and an error allowed the go-ahead Hops run to score in the ninth, with Breckin Williams getting the last four outs for the W. Starter Brent Jones allowed three runs over five innings, on six hits, no walks and three strikeouts. 2B Sergio Alcantara had three hits, a walk and a stolen base, scoring twice for Hillsboro, but did make an error; DH Grant Heyman had a double and a single, driving in a run.
Rookie Missoula 3, Orem 2. A three-run second for the Osprey was all they'd need, as LF Matt Railey led things off with his first home-run, and after a walk, C Francis Christy added a two-run shot. Missoula were outhit 10-4, and went 0-for-5 with RISP but still prevailed, RF Mike Abreu reaching base safely all three times he was up, on a hit and two walks. Starter Bryant Holtmann scattered seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings, being charged with both Orem runs. Dallas Newton was awarded the win for his 1.2 scoreless innings of relief.
AZL D-backs 3, Royals 2 (10). Archie Bradley got the start for the D-backs here, and tossed four shutout innings for them. He gave up two hits and did walk three, but struck out six, facing a total of 18 batters. After the game ended tied at one in regulation, the Royals took the lead in the top of the tenth off Luis Castillo. However, with two outs in the bottom of the tenth, 1B Ismael Pena had an RBI triple to knot things up, and he was then driven in by 2B Jeff Smith's second hit of the day, a walk-off RBI single.
