Colorado Springs, L 4-9 - John Koronka yielded four runs on nine hits over five innings. An RBI double by Brian LaHair and a two-run single by Matt Tuiasosopo in the fifth inning scored the majority of runs Koronka allowed. Chris George allowed five runs in one-plus inning. Two doubles and a triple in the seventh led to three runs off George in the seventh, and three singles and a walk in the eighth brought in the other two runs. Matt Daley came in and recorded three consecutive outs to end the inning. Juan Morillo still had trouble finding the strike zone as he walked three in the ninth, but didn't give up a run.

Cory Sullivan had a two-run double in the fifth, Sean Barker's doubled on a pop up in the sixth to score the third run, and Ian Stewart then scored on a wild pitch during the next at bat. Seth Smith walked three times.

This game was delayed as a result of the Monforts arriving late for the ceremony to hand out National League Championship rings.

Tulsa, L 2-4 - Alan Johnson went five inning and allowed four runs on five hits. He walked four and struck out five (three in the first inning). He allowed only one baserunner over the first three innings (a walk), but Drew Macias' RBI triple in the fifth off Johnson proved to be the winning run as San Antonio took a 3-2 lead at that point. Adam Bright struck out two in his inning of relief work. Casey Weathers followed and struck out four over two innings. The other two outs came by way of the ground, and of his 29 pitches, 22 went for strikes. Ryan Mattheus struck out two in the ninth.

Justin Nelson led off the second inning with a homer (and also walked twice). Jeff Kindel had a 3-for-4 night, his double in the second put Daniel Carte (who reached base on a walk) on third. He would score on a Neil Wilson ground out. Dexter Fowler swiped second base twice, and EY Jr. struck out four times.

Modesto, W 9-5 - Huge night for Mike McKenry. He went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a two-run homer, six RBI, and two runs scored. Cole Garner hit his first homer of the season and had his first stolen base.

Aneury Rodriguez went five innings and allowed four runs on nine hits. Will Harris threw two innings in relief and struck out three.

Manager Jerry Weinstein was correct when he predicted a road trip would help the Modesto offense come alive.

Asheville, L 2-3 - The Tourists had only five hits last night, singles by Everth Cabrera, Helder Velazquez, Brian Rike, Beau Seabury, and Mike Mitchell. Rike stole his fourth base of the season.

Jhoulys Chacin wasn't nearly as effective as he was in his last two starts: 4 2/3 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 4 K, 1 HR. In the first inning, Chacin issued a bases-loaded walk with two outs. He also had a wild pitch and hit Ryan Anetsberger twice. Craig Rodriguez struck out three in 2 1/3 IP.
