High-A Visalia 7, Stockton 6. After rushing out to a six-run lead through four, the Rawhide had to withstand a furious Ports comeback, climaxing in a two-run ninth that left the tying run in scoring position. Cameron Gann got an ugly sixth save. Joel Payamps got the win, allowing four runs over 5.2 innings on eight hits and three walks, with three strikeouts. CF Colin Bray led the offense with two doubles and a walk, and LF Cody Regis also had two hits and a base on balls for Visalia.
A-ball Kane County 6, Wisconsin 2. DH Luis Alejandro Basabe had his first home-run and also tripled, driving in four runs for the Cougars.

Kane County tied things up with a two-run third, and blew the game open with a four-run seventh, highlighted by Basabe’s three-run shot. Carlos Hernandez allowed two runs in six, on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts, and Austin Mason improved to 5-0 with three innings of shutout relief.
A-short Hillsboro 6, Vancouver 5. Both starters were gone by the middle of the fourth, but the game entered the ninth all square.
