Triple-A Reno 10, Memphis 9. A five-run eighth inning powered the Aces to an eventual comeback victory, with two-run doubles by 2B Phil Gosselin and SS Danny Worth powering that frame. LF Jamie Romak had three hits, two of them for extra bases, and there were two-hit nights for Gosselin and Worth while CF Todd Glaesmann got three. Aaron Blair got a no-decision, allowing five runs (four earned) over six innings on six hits and three walks with one strikeout. Kaleb Fleck gave up a game-tying grand-slam in the top of the ninth, but received the W, as the Aces got a walk-off passed ball with one out in the bottom of the ninth,
Double-A Mobile 1 @ Biloxi 8. The BayBears were in trouble early, five down by the end of the second as starter Gabriel Arias struggled. He ended up getting through five, on eight hits and an ugly five walks, with three K's, but the damage was done. J.R Bradley worked two scoreless before giving up three in the eighth. CF Evan Marzilli had his first home-run for Mobile, leading off the sixth for their only tally of the night, and also singled. RF Socrates Brito had a double among his three hits, but the BayBears struck out 11 times and didn't walk once.
High-A Visalia 4, Bakersfield 1.Six different Rawhide players had two-hit nights, with three of those including a home-run in their output: DH Jamie Westbrook (#13), RF Daniel Palka (#27) and CF Chuck Taylor (#2). Marcus Solbach tossed six very solid innings, with just an unearned run allowed, scattering six hits, but walking none and striking out six. The bullpen then tossed three hitless innings, Steve Hathaway, Myles Smith and Nickolas Sarianides each striking out a pair, the last-named picking up his 24th save.
A-ball Kane County 5 @ Cedar Rapids 0. Jared Miller and three relievers combined on an eight-hit shutout of the Kernels. Miller went five innings, allowing four hits and three walks with three K's; Hector Hernandez worked the final two frames. The Cougars were outhit 8-6, and only went 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position, but took advantage of the home team's sloppy play, with four of the five runs being unearned. 3B Joe Munoz had a pair of hits and a walk, driving in and scoring a run, while 2B Henry Castillo singled and walked.
A-short Hillsboro 3, Tri-City 5.Looks like a bullpen kinda night for the Hops, as starter Tyler Bolton went two-thirds of an inning, the first of six Hillsboro pitchers used. After falling three behind, they did tie things up with a three-run third, but the Dust Devils retook the lead in the fifth, and held on from there. LF Luis Veras doubled and singled, driving in a run, and there was also a two-hit game for C Nate Irving.
Rookie Missoula 3 @ Helena 7. The Osprey scored two in the first, in part on SS Isan Diaz's 11th home-run of the year, but the Brewers came back quickly to be 6-2 up by the end of the third. Bo Takahashi took his first loss for Missoula, and it was an ugly one: 11 hits, a walk, and seven earned runs over four innings, with three K's. Scott Schultz worked a pair of scoreless relief innings. Diaz had two hits and a walk, but was also caught stealing, while CF Marcus Wilson doubled and walked.
