Reno Aces 6, Round Rock Express 10: Anthony Banda allowed 6 runs over 6 innings, his 3rd straight outing of 6 or more innings. Banda walked 2 and struck out 3 while allowing 7 hits. The bullpen was able to keep the Express to 6 runs in regulation, including perfect 7th inning from Rubby De La Rosa and a perfect 9th from Jimmie Sherfy with 2 strikeouts. After the Aces tied things in the bottom of the 7th, no scoring changes happened until the top of the 10th when Kaleb Fleck was blitzed for 4 runs (2 earned). Ketel Marte went 1 for 4 with a walk and Ildemaro Vargas went 2 for 4.

Jackson Generals 4, Pensacola Blue Wahoos 8: Brooks Hall struggled mightily and pretty much put the game out of reach by the 3rd inning. He was able to give 5 innings overall to save some wear on the bullpen. Gabriel Moya, one of the more underrated arms in the organization, followed up with 2 scoreless with 2 strikeouts. Jared Miller pitched a scoreless 8th and Daniel Gibson allowed a run in the 9th, the first earned run against him all season. Generals had opportunities to score with 8 walks on the game, 3 by Evan Marzilli. Michael Perez had 2 hits and 2 RBI in the loss.

Visalia Rawhide 6, San Jose Giants 4: Jose Almonte was good in this game, shutting out the Giants for 6 innings with 9 strikeouts. He got plenty of offense behind him, with Matt McPhearson and Merty Herum going 7 for 7 at the plate and a 2-run homer by Grant Heyman for the 2nd straight game. Bullpen was shaky and ultimately the 6-0 cushion was enough to get to the finish line. Sergio Alcantara went 1 for 3 with a double and a walk.

Kane County Cougars 6, Beloit Snappers 7: The Cougars trailed 4-0 after a poor first inning by Curtis Taylor. Trailing 5-0 after 4, the Cougars twice scored a pair of runs to bring it within 5-4. However, the bullpen was unable to keep the Snappers off the board for the rest of the game. The Cougars once again shrunk the deficit to 1 in the 8th, but were unable to get the tying run across. Marcus Wilson went 1 for 4 with an RBI and SB and Anfernee Grier 2 for 4 with a double, 2 RBI, and SB.
