Modesto, L 3-6
Chad Bettis (6 IP, 4 H, 3/1 R/ER, 1 BB, 2 K) entered the sixth inning with a 2-1 lead, but errors by Josh Rutledge and Eliezer Mesa chased him out of the game. Michael Marbry entered the game, allowed a sac bunt, and then saw Juan Ciriaco hit a two-run double to put San Jose in the lead. Marbry allowed three more runs, all unearned, in the eighth inning. Nolan Arenado's fielding error started things off in the eighth inning, but a wild pitch and a double scored the three runs.
Arenado put the Nuts up, 1-0, in the first inning, while Kent Matthes' ninth homer of the season put the Nuts up, 2-0, in the fourth inning. Delta Cleary added an RBI single in the eighth for his third hit of the night. All told, the offense picked up 10 hits.
Asheville, L 5-6
The Tourists jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the second inning with a Helder Velazquez two-run double and a Russell Wilson RBI single. However, Asheville's pitching didn't oblige to keep Augusta off the board. Albert Campos finished five innings of work by allowing four runs on seven hits and three walks. In the fourth inning, back-to-back doubles allowed one run before a wild pitch and a sac fly scored the other.
Tied at four in the sixth inning, the Tourists retook the lead thanks to Russell Wilson. He walked, stole second (13), and then scored after swiping third (14) because of a throwing error by the catcher. But Joshua Mueller gave it all back in the bottom of the inning.
