Colorado Springs Ryan Shealy continues to showcase his talent at the AAA level as the Sky Sox had more success against the Padres affiliate in Portland than the parent club did in San Diego. Shealy and Josh Wilson homered, and Omar Quintanilla had three hits (two doubles) and scored twice in the six to three victory.

Tulsa A four to one loss to San Antonio could have been avoided if the Drillers were a little more opportunistic on the basepaths. The Drillers finished with ten hits and two walks and had three more baserunners than the Missions. Matt Macri had three hits. Seth Smith, Christian Colonel and Alvin Colina had two hits apiece. Smith's double and single extended his hit streak to eight games. Tulo wasn't in the lineup, I haven't seen any reason for it, however.
Modesto The Nuts ten to four victory was highlighted by a strong performance from Franklin Morales who took a no hitter into the sixth inning and wound up giving up just one run on two hits and three walks after being pulled following that sixth. Morales also had six strikeouts to bring his season total to 58, which for the moment is tops systemwide.
Asheville Alan Johnson showed signs of getting back on track in six innings of work, while Chris Nelson had a pair of hits and a pair of RBI (30 now on the season) and Cole Garner hit his fifth homerun of the year, but the Tourists eventually lost to Kannapolis by a four to three margin.
