AA Tulsa Drillers (39-41, 2nd TEX North)

A+ Modesto Nuts (39-42, 4th CAL North)
Nuts 2, JetHawks 1
Chad Bettis continues to impress the California league with his sheer punchout numbers. Striking out over a batter an inning while walking fewer than 3 per 9. He's averaging over 6 innings per start (including 8 on Sunday), but his FIP/ERA discrepancy suggests that his work on missing bats as a whole could use some improvement.
Angelys Nina contributed 2 hits and an RBI in this low scoring affair, as did David Christensen, and Scott Robinson was driven in on one of Nina's hits.
Kurt Yacko pitched a 1-hit inning for his 2nd save of the season.

Tourists 4, Intimidators 5 (13)
Kyle Parker had 3 hits as the DH for the Tourists, going 3-for-6 with 3 punchouts, 2 doubles, and 2 runs scored. Helder Velasquez, Chandler Laurent, and Mark Tracy all had multi hit games, and Rafael Ortega had a hit of his own.
Brett Tanos, however, went 0fer.
Albert Campos had a legit start, pitching 6 innings of 1 run ball, striking out 5 and walking none. Isaiah Froneberger allowed 2 runs without recording an out. Juan Perez blew the lead by allowing a run in the 9th, and Dominic Altobelli gave up the final run in walkoff fashion in the 13th.
A- Tri City Dust Devils (10-7, 1st NOR East)
Dust Devils 2, Indians 3
Vianney Mayo was the hard luck loser in the contest, pitching 5 innings of 1-run ball. Ching Lung Lo allowed 2 runs over his inning of work, and Rhett Ballard and Christopher Dennis finished the final 3 innings in scoreless fashion.

Rk Casper Ghosts (5-9, 4th PIO South)
