Triple-A Reno 2 @ Sacramento 3. The Aces were held to just four hits, which mean that Frank Duncan’s quality start was wasted. Duncan tossed six innings, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks, with four strikeouts, but his record dropped to 1-4 with this loss. 1B Christian Walker had Reno’s only extra-base hit, while RF Zach Borenstein reached base twice, with a hit and a walk. Enrique Burgos allowed a run in two innings of relief.

Double-A Jackson 10 @ Mobile 6. The Generals blew a five-run lead after three innings, but then scored five more over the final two innings to secure victory. LF Jamie Westbrook got things started with a first inning grand-slam, while 1B Kevin Cron had homers #6 and #7 for the year. DH Rudy Flores joined Cron with two hits and three RBI. Josh Taylor scattered nine hits and two walks over six inning, allowing five runs and striking out a pair. Daniel Gibson got the save, allowing an unearned run over the final two frames.

High-A Visalia 2, Lancaster 4. The Rawhide were hitless in six at-bats with runners in scoring position, and always trailed after Jose Almonte allowed a two-run homer with one out in the top of the first. Almonte gave up seven hits and three walks over six innings, leading to three runs, all earned, striking out three. CF Gail Cribbs tripled and singled, while RF Jason Morozowski scored both runs for Visalia, after drawing three walks.

A-ball Kane County 0 @ West Michigan 1. [Bonus: check out MIK57’s report from the game] The Cougars were six-hit by the Whitecaps in a pitching duel. DH Ramon Hernandez and 2B Luis Alejandro Basabe each had two of those hits, Basable ading a stolen-base. RF Zach Nehrir singled and drew Kane County's only walk. Curtin Taylor allowed the run in his four innings, on four hits and three walks, with five strikeouts. Sam Lewis and Jake Winton kept Kane County in the game, each with a pair of scoreless innings out of the bullpen.
