Reno Aces vs. Omaha Storm Chasers postponed due to inclement weather: I find this hilarious and ironic consider the name of the Aces opponent.
Jackson Generals 17, Montgomery Biscuits 5: The Generals had two big scoring innings, aided by a pair of Grand Slams in the game, one hit by Kelly Dugan in the first and Rudy Flores in the 4th. That was more than enough run support for Alex Young, who deliver 7 strong innings on the mound. The Generals bats did not let up for the game, with all starters scoring at least 1 run.
Visalia Rawhide 3, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 5: All the scoring in this game was in the first 3 innings. The Rawhide trailed 5-1 after the 2nd inning, but were able to score 3 runs off a rehabbing Kenta Maeda. The Rawhide bats took advantage of 3 Quake errors for their runs, although the lack of extra base hits really didn’t maximize the damage they could have done. Sergio Alcantara added a single and a walk in the game.
Kane County Cougars 5, Quad Cities River Bandits 0: The Cougars recorded consecutive shutouts, this time Jon Duplantier blanking the River Bandits for 6 innings. Duplantier walked 3 and struck out 6, so maybe a promotion isn’t a big deal right now. The offense took advantage of huge defensive miscues, scoring 4 runs in the 7th to make it a 5-0 game. Marcus Wilson went 1 for 4 with a run scored in the win.
