AA - Tulsa: L 4-1 (52-60)
Kiel Roling had the Drillers' only two hits - one of which was a solo home run. Cory Riordan was decent in six innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits while striking out six. However, he walked three batters and allowed two long balls. Rex Brothers also allowed a solo homer, but that was the only hit he gave up in two innings while striking out five batters. It looks like he's starting to adjust to the AA level after struggling mightily upon arriving.

Josh Sullivan started the game and lasted just two innings, allowing three unearned runs on a hit and three walks. Kenneth Durst did a nice job in relief, as he tossed six hitless innings while allowing just one walk and striking out two and maintaining a 2-to-1 GO/FO ratio. Kurt Yacko took the loss as he gave up two runs on two hits in the top of the ninth inning.

A (Short Season) - Tri-City: L 4-3 in 10 innings (22-28)
