New, comments

Jon Duplantier once again delivered a scoreless outing, his 6th in 9 appearances (8 starts).

Snake Stars:

3 Stars: Kane County RHP Jon Duplantier 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, GS 72, W (5-0)

2 Stars: Visalia 2B Henry Castillo 2 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI

1 Star: Visalia RHP Ryan Atkinson 5 23 IP, 6 H, 4 R (4 ER), 2 BB, 10 K, GS 50, L (2-2)

0 Stars: Visalia RHP Cody Clark 1 13 IP, 4 H, 3 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 0 K, 2/2 inherited runners scored

Reno Aces 0, Iowa Cubs 5: Eric Jokisch allowed 4 runs in 6 innings, but bad defense and offensive support doomed the Aces from the get-go. The team collected 5 hits and 9 baserunners for the game, but went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position. Oswaldo Arcia had the only extra base hit in the game for the Aces and also drew a walk in 4 plate appearances. Matt Stites allowed a run in the 8th and Silvino Bracho struck out 2 in a scoreless 9th.

Jackson Generals rained out

Visalia Rawhide 3, Stockton Ports 7: Ryan Atkinson pitched better than what his final stat line shows, which is 4 runs in 5 23 innings. Atkinson struck out 10 and walked 2, leaving with a 2-0 deficit. Cody Clark proceeded to allow both inherited runners to score in addition to 2 runs of his own in the 6th on a homer, then allowed a solo shot in the 7th. The offense was unable to overcome such a bad relief outing, although Henry Castillo did deliver a 2-run double in the top of the 7th.

Kane County Cougars 3, Burlington Bees 0: Jon Duplantier continues to dominate the Midwest League. The #2 prospect pitched his 6th scoreless appearance, all of which are 5 or more innings, with 6 scoreless. He walked none, struck out 2, and got 11 ground ball outs. The offense once again was enough, with 1 run of support behind Duplantier and getting 2 more after he threw his final pitch. #4 prospect Marcus Wilson went 1 for 2 at the plate with 2 walks and a run scored. The bullpen was outstanding, with 3 scoreless innings from Wei-Chieh Huang and Tommy Eveld, striking out 4 hitters.
