The Springs, L 2-3: Aaron Cook pitched one inning (27 pitches) and allowed three runs on four hits. That performance isn't going to help him comeback any time sooner since he re-injured an oblique muscle during it. Mike Paulk had his first Triple-A hit in the same game Jayson Nix hit his 11th homer.
Tulsa, W 8-5: Corey Wimberly had two hits, scored three times, and stole his 36th base while Aaron Rifkin and Matt Miller each drove in two runs. Ching-Lung Lo went five innings, allowed four runs on seven hits, and walked three. The bullpen kept the Wichita offense off the board, with one exception. Matt Daley struck out four in two innings of relief, and Steven Register collected his 37th save after throwing one pitch, which induced a double play.
Modesto, W 5-3: Cole Garner led the Modesto offense last night with his eighth homer. Darric Merrell and Morgan Trent pitched the first seven innings of the game before David Patton and Tomas Santiago each struck out two in their one-inning appearances.
Asheville, W 11-4: Hector Gomez (11) and Bret Berglund (8) led the offense with their three-run and two-run homers. Jay Cox and Victor Ferrante both had two hits and two RBI. Keith Weiser picked up his 17th victory after going eight innings. He struck out eight before Tommy Baumgardner replaced him in the ninth.
Tri-City, L 4-12: No Dust Devils pitcher escaped the game without allowing a run. Robinson Fabian was the major culprit with six allowed in four innings. Maruis Loupadiere had three hits, and Phil Cuadrado drove in two on a double.
Casper, L 2-7: Zack Murry had three base hits, drove in a run, and stole a base, but also had three errors (one throwing, two fielding). Shane Lowe also had two errors. Jeff Fischer fell to 0-10 after allowing five runs in three innings.
