Kane County SS Jazz Chisholm 5 for 6, 3B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 4 R

Quality Starts:

AZL Dbacks RHP Carlos Hernandez 1 IP, 3 H, 3 R (3 ER), 0 BB, 3 K, BS (1)

Reno Aces 6, Tacoma Rainiers 10: Taylor Clarke’s first start after the AAA All Star Break was a solid one, pitching into the 6th and allowing 2 runs overall. The Aces offense responded early with a 3-hit game from Socrates Brito and a big home run from Kristopher Negron gave the Aces a 6-2 lead. Unfortunately, things fell apart in the 7th where Joey Krehbiel and Jimmie Sherfy were unable to keep the lead as Tacoma scored 5 runs in the inning. Sherfy pitched a scoreless 8th before Jared Miller came in and allowed 3 runs in the 9th.

Jackson Generals 6, Mobile Baybears 5: Ryan Atkinson didn’t get good defense behind him, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) in 6 innings, although he didn’t create a lot of good luck with a 4/4 K/BB ratio. The Jackson offense lulled a bit early before a big 4-run comeback in the bottom of the 7th. Jamie Westbrook drove in 3 runs and Daniel Robertson added a homer in the inning. The bullpen allowed just one unearned run over the final 3 frames, no-hitting Mobile along the way.

Visalia Rawhide 3, San Jose Giants 2: Most of the offense came early, with San Jose scoring in the first 3 innings and Visalia plating 3 in the 4th. Connor Grey bounced back from a string of poor starts with 6 innings of 2 run ball with no walks and 4 strikeouts. The Visalia offense wasn’t great, but they were able to capitalize on sloppy defense as the Giants committed 2 errors. Tyler Mark and Tommy Eveld shut down the San Jose lineup for the final 3 innings.

Kane County Cougars 13, Dayton Dragons 4: The Cougars offense got a huge lift from SS Jazz Chisholm, who reminded everyone that he’s still a top prospect with a 5-hit, 2-homer game, driving in 5 runs on the day. Every batter in the Kane County lineup recorded at least one hit. Brian Shaffer went 5 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, 1 walk, and 5 strikeouts. Tim Susnara had 2 hits and 3 RBI and Eudy Ramos added a 2-run homer.

Hillsboro Hops 2, Boise Hawks 3: Ryan Weiss started the game and struck out 3 in his 2 innings of work. Kenny Hernandez went the next 5, allowing 3 runs on 9 hits, no walks, and 2 strikeouts. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to hold leads of 1-0 and 2-1 as a 2-run homer by Luke Morgan in the 5th was the difference maker. After the 5th, the Hillsboro offense wasn’t able to threaten again.

Missoula Osprey 0, Idaho Falls Chukars 9: The Missoula offense was shut down all night, picking up only 4 singles and a walk. Edgar Martinez was holding his own until a disastrous 6th inning derailed everything for Missoula. Martinez and Omar Herman allowed 6 runs to score while only recording 2 outs in the inning.

AZL Dbacks 12, AZL Angels 8: Resuming from the bottom of the 8th inning in a 7-7 game that started on July 11th, the Dbacks took the 5 day break well as they plated 5 runs in the inning. The inning started with Kevin Watson Jr. getting hit by a pitch then death by a million hits and a clinic on baserunning put on by the Dbacks. Mailon Arroyo got the final 6 outs of the game.

AZL Dbacks 4, AZL Angels 3: Harrison Francis started this game, as he started the game that they resumed above as well. He allowed 1 run on 5 hits over 4 innings with no walks and 4 strikeouts. The game also featured rehabbing minor leaguers with Anfernee Grier, Jack Reinheimer and Jordan Watson appearing in the game. The game remained tied at 1 going into extras. Kristian Robinson broke the tie in the top of the 10th with a 3-run homer to give the Dbacks a 4-1 lead. Things got hairy in the bottom of the 10th as Raibel Custodio allowed 2 runs to score, but got the final out.
