Riley Smith actually had the only extra base hit for the Generals, a double in the fourth inning. The only run for the Generals came in the first. Ryan Grotjohn and Andy Young hit back to back singles, putting runners on first and third, then Pavin Smith singled, scoring Grotjohn.
Shumpei Yoshikawa pitched six innings, allowed just one run on three hits, a wild pitch, and a walk, while striking out three batters. Mack Lemieux came on in the seventh and was only able to get one out while allowing a hit and two walks, loading the bases, before being taken out for Kyler Stout. Stout got the final two outs of the inning without allowing any of the three inherited runners to score, then pitched a scoreless eighth inning. West Tunnell struck out two in a perfect ninth inning.
Visalia scored two runs in the third inning thanks to a two run homer by LT Tolbert, and another run in the fourth when Jake McCarthy singled, stole second, and advanced to third when Camden Duzenack singled. Duzenack then stole second, but McCarthy was able to score thanks to a throwing error by Modesto Catcher Cal Raleigh.

Chester Pimentel followed with two scoreless innings in sixth and seventh, with two hits allowed, no walks, and three strikeouts. Kai-Wei Lin pitched two scoreless innings as well, with a hit, a walk, and four strikeouts.
Blaze Alexander homered in the top of the second to score a run and tie the game up at 1-1. After losing the lead 2-1, Kane County pulled well ahead of with six runs in the fifth on the back of Alek Thomas’ two run single and Eddie Hernandez’s three run triple, then allowed a run in the bottom of the inning to make the score 7-3. Kane County scored two more runs in the top of the ninth thanks to back to back singles by Blaze Alexander and Joe Gillette, along with a missed catch error.
This was an actual, competitive game with the lead changing multiple times. Jose Alcantara went five innings and allowed just a run five hits and a walk, while striking out two. If it weren’t for the wild pitch and the balk, you could call that a very solid start. Roaldo Carvajal went two innings and allowed three runs on five hits, a hit by pitch, and two wild pitches, but with no walks and a strikeout. Jonathan Almonte went two innings and allowed an unearned run (thanks to a throwing error) on two hits and a walk.
The Dbacks1 jumped out to an early lead, scoring a run in the second and the third, only for the Blue Jays to tie it up by scoring a run in the fifth and sixth. The Blue Jays scored two runs in seventh to pull ahead 4-2, but the Dbacks1 would answer back with three runs in bottom of the eighth to pull back ahead 5-4. The Blue Jays tied the game up again, scoring a run in the top of the ninth, but the Dbacks1 answered back with a run in the bottom of the inning to win it. Endy Estrada had a big game, going 3-4 with a walk, two doubles, and a stolen base. Jeferson Espinal had a mixed day overall, going 4-5 with a double and two runs scored, but was picked off twice and a had a fielding error on top of it.
Christian Pacheco went two and a third innings and was rough up for seven runs (all in the third) on three hits, a hit by pitch, and five walks. Osvaldo Morel relieved Pacheco with one out and the bases loaded, and allowed all three runners to score, in addition to a run of his own, for a eight runs total in the third inning. Pacheco pitched two and two thirds innings, and allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits (including a two run home run in the fifth), a walk while striking out four. Pacheco threw three wild pitches, and an errant pick off throw, which probably didn't help things much. Mauricio Bascunan pitched three scoreless innings, with just a pair of hits, and one strikeout, but also threw two wild pitches. Catcher Ricardo Caldera had a very bad day behind the dish, besides the five wild pitches between Pacheco and Bascunan, Caldera had a passed ball and a throwing error.
The Dbacks2 lead briefly 1-0 after Leodany Perez hit a triple to leadoff the game, then scored on a wild pitch. However the Dbacks2 were shutdown completely until the ninth inning, when they scored two runs after Dairon Cuevas and walked, advanced on a wild pitch, then scored on back-to-back ground outs.
