Colorado Springs, W 5-4 - Jason Hirsh made another rehab start. He allowed four runs, three coming of a solo shot and a two-run homer. In 4 1/3 IP, Hirsh allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out six. Luis Vizcaino struck out two in one inning of work. VIzcaino, Chris George, Valerio De Los Santos, Matt Daley, and Steven Register (who recorded his seventh save) combined to allow only three hits over the last 4 2/3 innings.

Trailing by one, Joe Koshansky hit a two-run double in the bottom of the eight to put the Sky Sox ahead 5-4. Brad Hawpe scored on the play, having singled to lead off the inning. Dustan Mohr had a double and an RBI. Newly arrived Kenny Perez had a hit.

Tulsa, L 2-3 - Ching Lung Lo limited Springfield to five hits and two runs in seven innings. He struck out seven and walked none. Aaron Fultz pitched in between Darren Clarke's and Jon George's clean outings. See, lefty Fultz entered the game to face a lefty at the start of the ninth inning with the game tied at two and promptly allowed a homer on his first pitch. Jon George immediately relieved him, ending the inning with no more damage done. But the Drillers could not come back.

Eric Young Jr. collected two hits (one was a double) and stole his 12th base. Corey Wimberly stole his 26th base. Jeff Dragicevich pinch hit for Lo and struck out.

Modesto - No game scheduled.

Asheville, W 5-4 - Sheng-An Kuo allowed all four runs on two two-run homers in the top of the first. He went five innings, gave up eight hits (five came in the first inning), and walked four. Joey Williamson, Craig Baker, and Randall Taylor combined for four innings of two-hit relief (both allowed by Baker). Taylor struck out two in the process of recording his 21st save.

The Tourist offense answered over the next two innings to tie the game. Everth Cabrera had a double and stole his 41st base before scoring on a Mike Mitchell double in the first. Mitchell scored that inning on a Darin Holcomb sac fly. In the second inning, Helder Velazquez hit his fifth homer after Kevin Clark started the inning with a walk. Not to be outdone, Clark hit his fifth homer of the season in the fourth inning to put the Tourists ahead. David Christensen had two hits, one a double, and did not strike out. Jeff Cunningham stole his first two bases of the season.
