Triple-A Reno 3 @ Las Vegas 2. 1B Kyle Jensen's second home-run of the game, and 22nd of the season, gave the Aces the lead in the ninth inning, and Jimmie Sherfy struck out two of the three he faced to notch his fourth save.

Double-A Mobile off day.
High-A Visalia 10, Modesto 4. 3B Henry Castillo drove in five runs with two hits and a walk, including his ninth home-run of the season, to lead the Rawhide attack. 1B Cody Regis picked up three singles, driving in two, while 2B Robelys Reyes and SS Galli Cribbs each got two hits and a walk. DH Grant Heyman also went deep, for his fourth home-run of the year. Justin Donatella improved his record to 3-1, giving Visalia six innings of two-run ball, on four hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. Reliever Drew Muren recorded all six outs he recorded by the K.
A-ball Kane County 9 @ Lansing 2. 1B Austin Byler and 3B Fernery Ozuna each came within one hit of the cycle for the Cougars this afternoon, and both managed the hardest part. Byler was a home-run short and Ozuna a double, the latter also driving in five runs. CF Colin Bray had two doubles and a single. Starter Carlos Hernandez struggled with his control, walking five in 5.2 innings, but struck out seven and gave up only two hits and two runs, one of those being unearned. Austin Mason and Cody Clark combined for 3.1 scoreless frames of relief.
A-short Hillsboro 3 @ Tri-City 0. Wei-Chieh Huang and four Hops relievers combined on a five-hit shutout of the Dust Devils. Huang fell one out short of getting the decision, but fanned six in 4.2 innings, on four hits and a walk. Jordan Watson highlighted the Hillsboro bullpen fanning all three batters he faced. The Hops got 11 hits; two of those were by 3B Josh Anderson who also scored two and drove in one. The middle-infield duo of SS Mark Karaviotis and 2B Manny Jefferson each had two-hit nights as well.
Rookie Missoula 7, Idaho Falls 17. Some ugly pitching by the Osprey staff, who allowed 20 hits. But they weren't helped by ugly defense, Missoula committing five errors. three by SS Jasrado Chisholm. 1B Tanner Hill doubled, singled and walked, driving in three; 3B Eudy Ramos got his ninth home-run, a two-run shot in the eighth inning and also singled. With every pitcher allowed giving up at least three runs, we'll draw a veil over that side of the box-score, shall we?
