The Springs, L 0-4: Things went well for Jason Hirsh in his second start for the Sky Sox. He went a full five innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits. He threw 42 of his 66 pitches for strikes. There wasn't much going on for the offense, with Jayson Nix having the lone extra-base hit.
Tulsa: Postponed. The team will play tonight.
Modesto: Most of the Cal League had last night off.
Asheville, W 6-1: Keith Weiser added another fine start to his 2007 collection. He went eight innings, allowed the only opposing run, and struck out five. Matt Repec hit his fourth homer and drove in two runs, Jay Cox also added two RBI. Geoff Strickland walked four times, and Hector Gomez led off the bottom of the first inning with a double.
Tri-City, L 2-3: Darin Holcomb's two-run homer in the first inning was all the offense for the Dust Devils. But the bigger story is Bruce Billings outing; he held Eugene to two hits in six innings and struck out eleven. The bullpen faltered over the seventh and eight innings when Joey Williamson and Craig Rodriguez allowed two runs and one run in the eight inning.
Casper, L 4-10: Scott Robinson had a triple and an RBI, while Chad Lembeck hit his second homer. Bo Bowman and Chris Vasami each drove in a run. Bobby Paschal and Jonnathan Aristil both allowed five runs in each of their three-inning performances. Aristil, though, was only charged with one earned run. Carlos Martinez committed a throwing error to allow all four runners to cross home plate on that play.
