Colorado Springs, L 3-12
Normally the team that has an 11-run inning is going to win the game, and last night that's exactly what happened. Fresno scored 11 runs off of Kurt Birkins, Matt Wilhite, and Scott Rice in the sixth inning. Greg Smith started the game and allowed a hit and no runs in three innings.
Michael McKenry hit his 10th homer of the season, a solo shot in the second. He had a double as well.
Tulsa, L 1-2
One little mistake and rehabbing Aaron Cook took the loss for Tulsa last night. He allowed a homer in the second, but other than that Cook took care of Frisco. He allowed that one run, gave up three hits, and struck out four in five innings. Ching-Lung Lo allowed the other run on a homer as well. Shortstop Radames Nazario hit a solo homer in the eighth inning, his second of the season.
Modesto, L 0-4
Rob Scahill allowed four runs in six innings, two scoring on a homer. He struck out seven. First baseman Ben Paulsen collected two of Modesto's three hits.
Asheville, W 7-3
Chris Balcom-Miller held Savannah to two runs on four hits in seven innings and struck out 11. First baseman Jared Clark went 2-for-5 with three RBI and three K's. Right fielder Orlando Sandoval had two hits, two RBI, and three K's. Second baseman Helder Velazquez went hitless in five at-bats and struck out four times.
Tri-City, W 9-5 (7 innings)
Center fielder Chandler Laurent hit a grand slam in the sixth inning, and right fielder Leonardo Reyes delivered a two-run homer in the first inning. Kraig Sitton relieved Joshua Mueller who allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings. Sitton allowed a run and struck out three on the way to his first professional victory.
Tri-City, W 4-1 (7 innings)
Center fielder Chandler Laurent hit his second homer of the night in the second game last night. He now has 10 for the season.

Craig Baker also made his first appearance in quite some time and allowed a hit in the sixth.
