Reno 3, Sacremento 7: Tyler Wagner did not pitch poorly, allowing 2 runs in 5 innings but the lack of offense plus a 6th inning meltdown by Matt Capps blew the game open. Wagner allowed 5 hits and a walk and struck out 5 in the losing effort. The Aces got a 2-hit game from Peter O'Brien, which included a double and Jack Reinheimer, who reached base three times. The Aces struggled to put across runs in the game, going 1 for 12 with RISP and the only hit being a 2-run triple by Mike Freeman in the 9th inning.

Mobile 7, Mississippi 0: This was a thorough domination game for the Baybears, which starts with Edgar Garcia's complete game shutout. Not only did they get a terrific performance from their starter, the bats came alive for the game. The Baybears collected 11 hits and capitalized on 7 walks, led by Stewart Ijames who cranked out 3 hits that included a double and a 3-run homer in the 5th. Ronnie Freeman and Mitch Haniger were the only players that didn't collect hits, but they collectively walked 3 times so it was a productive game at the plate for everyone involved. Even the defense had a strong night overall with two double plays turned and Evan Marzilli throwing out a runner at home to preserve the shutout.

Visalia 2, High Desert 7: Brad Keller struggled with the long ball today, as he allowed 5 runs and 2 homers. Keller went 6 innings, allowed 6 hits and a walk with 5 strikeouts which is your prototypical Keller stat-line aside from the home runs. The Rawhide collected 10 hits, but struggled to drive in runs with a 1 for 8 day with RISP. Victor Reyes hit his 2nd homer of the year and Grant Heyman picked up 3 hits that included a double.
