New, comments

Colorado Springs, L 2-4
Matt Miller had a sac fly to score Colorado Springs' only run and Edwin Bellorin drove in Dan Ortmeier in the ninth. Eric Young Jr. stole his 43rd base. Alan Johnson allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings.

Tulsa, W 13-1
Anthony Jackson surprisingly hit a three-run homer as part of the offensive onslaught by the Drillers last night. Cole Garner had a solo homer (6). Michael McKenry went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI. Brad Corley and Rex Rundgren had two hits each and drove in two and three runs, respectively.

Esmil Rogers allowed a run on eight hits in eight innings. He struck out seven. Seventy-six of his 111 pitches went for strikes.

There will be a one-game playoff on Friday to decide the North Division title between Tulsa and Springfield.

Modesto had the day off due to the California League-Carolina League All-Star Game.

SAL All-Star Game
Scott Robinson went 0-for-5 with 3 strikeouts, and Jimmy Cesario and Jordan Pacheco went hitless in their lone ABs.

Tri-City, W 3-2
Kent Matthes hit a two-run double in the first inning and was thrown out at third on the play while trying to stretch it to a triple. He then had a sac fly in the sixth. Scott Beerer went 0-for-4.

Daniel Perkins started and allowed one run on three hits in 4 1/3 innings. He struck out five before leaving as a result of his 75-pitch count. Charlie Ruiz picked up his first save, and Joey Wong went 2-for-3.

Tim Wheeler will make his debut tonight.

Casper, L 1-10
Kyle Hancock probably wants a mulligan after last night's start. He went 4 1/3 innings, allowed eight runs on ten hits, and threw a WP. His GO-FO was 5-5. Chad Rose struck out three in 1 2/3 innings. Juan Rodriguez had a problem with the strike zone, walking five batters.

2B Angelys Nina had a double and RG Chandler Laurent hit a triple. The team went 0-for-11 with RISP.
