Tulsa, L 3-4: Christian Colonel had a two-run homer in the eighth inning to tie the game at three, but Jarrett Grube allowed a walk-off homer to Colby Rasmus.

Modesto, L 4-5: Alan Johnson threw a complete game, but the three-run homer he allowed in the eighth inning gave him the loss. He also struck out seven. EY Jr. and Chris Nelson combined for four of the team's five hits. Both had homers, Junior's a three-run homer (as part of his 3-for-4 night).
Tri-City, W 3-2: Lars Davis's drove in two on a single in the fourth and eventually scored the third run of the inning on an error was enough to tame Salem-Keizer in the first game of the NWL Championship Series. Brian Rike had a double as part of three-hit night. Robinson Fabian allowed two runs in 7 1/3 innings before giving way to the bullpen. Austin Chambliss entered in the ninth for the save after Riquy Pena walked the first two batters.

Casper, W 3-2: Jeff Cunningham led the offense last night with two doubles, a two-run homer in the first, and two RBI. Shane Lowe added a triple. Unfortunately for Jeff Fischer, he'll wind up winless in his first pro season. He went six innings, allowed two runs, and struck out six. Zack Murry drove in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth, allowing Randall Taylor to strike out two on his way to his fifth save.
