Triple-A Reno 5, Sacramento 2. Aaron Blair tossed eight innings of four-hit ball for the Aces, allowing one run, and improved his record to 7-2. He walked two and struck out five, throwing only 91 pitches. All the Reno scoring came on a pair of home-runs: SS Cody Ransom had a two-run shot, his sixth in the fourth, and LF Jamie Romak added a three-run shot in the following frame, #26 on the season. Both men also doubled, while 2B Danny Worth reached base four times, on two hits and two walks. 3B Jordan Pacheco and 1B Nick Evans each had a hit and two walks.

Double-A Mobile 10, Montgomery 6. After jumping out to a five-run second, the BayBears handed it right back, the Biscuits replying with a five-run third. But a four-run sixth broke a 6-6 tie, and Mobile held on to win. 1B Rudy Flores had three hits, and DH Garrett Weber had two doubles and a walk, driving in and scoring two. SS Jack Reinheimer had a double and two walks, with CF Evan Marzilli getting two hits, a stolen base and three runs. Gabriel Arias got an ugly win, with 10 hits over six innings, allowing six earned runs; he walked none and fanned one.

High-A Visalia 5, Stockton 9. The Rawhide were cruising, 5-0 up after three, but then the wheels fell off their pitching staff, as Miller Diaz and four relievers allowed the Ports to reel off nine straight runs. Diaz allowed two over five innings, but the bullpen was much worse, led by Bud Jeter who allowed three runs in two-thirds of an inning. It had started so well too, 2B Jamie Westbrook and 1B Daniel Palka going back-to-back with two outs in the first, #15 and #29 respectively. Westbrook also walked, Palka singled and 3B Gerson Montilla had two hits.

A-ball Kane County 10, Beloit 9. A particularly wild one saw the Cougars 9-3 down in the middle of the fifth, then roar back with seven unanswered to reduce their magic number for a second-half division title to 3. They had 16 hits, led by SS Ildemaro Vargas's double, two singles and a walk, scoring three times. RF Victor Reyes also had three hits, and CF Colin Bray a pair, driving in three. LF Cody Regis got two doubles. After Brent Jones + Nick Baker were tattooed, Ryan Burr, Luis Ramirez and Zac Curtis combined for four scoreless, Curtis notching save #32.

A-short Hillsboro 9 @ Boise 5. The Hops scored three in the first, blew that lead, but a three-run seventh helped them to victory. LF Stephen Dezzi led the offense with four hits including two doubles, and RF Grant Heyman got three knocks, with two RBI and two runs scored. SS Dansby Swanson got two hits and a walk. Tyler Mark allowed three runs (two earned) over his five innings, on four hits and a walk with a pair of K's. Breckin Williams struck out a pair in his scoreless eighth.

Rookie Missoula 5, Great Falls 7. Anfernee Benitez took the loss, scattering eight hits and a walk over five innings, with five runs allowed, and six strikeouts. Dan Savas was the only pitcher not to allow a run, putting up a zero in the ninth. C Matt Jones had a trio of hits, including a double, and 2B Raymel Flores hit his fifth home-run in the ninth inning. He also singled and walked, while SS Isan Diaz doubled and walked twice.
