Modesto, W 12-1
The Nuts jumped out to an early 9-0 lead in this contest, putting up seven in the top of the first. A Jordan Pacheco two-run triple, a fielding error, a David Christensen RBI single, and a Thomas Field three-run double accounted for the seven runs. Christensen added another RBI in the second inning. To cap off his night, Thomas Field hit an inside-the-park homer in the fifth inning. He went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a homer, and four RBI.

Kenny Durst allowed a run on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. Rex Brothers struck out one and walked one in the ninth inning to finish the game.

Asheville, L 4-5
The Tourists attempted a comeback in the seventh inning with a three-spot, but they could only manage to bring the game to within one run. That inning started with back-to-back-to-back doubles by Jose Gonzalez, Joseph Sanders (he had another in the game too), and Tyler Massey. A few plays later Eliezer Mesa drove in a run on a ground out.

Juan Gonzalez allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings. He also struck out five.
