The Springs, W 2-1
You don't see this everyday with the Sky Sox: at home, they picked up the victory on just four hits, as opposed to Salt Lake's one run on eight hits. Eliezer Alfonso hit a solo homer in the second inning and Willy Taveras hit an RBI triple in the fifth. Eric Young Jr. and Dexter Fowler each went 0-for-4, the former with one strikeout, the latter with two.
Greg Reynolds scattered seven hits over seven innings and struck out seven.
Tulsa, W 9-7
The Drillers scored six runs over the final three innings to come back from a 7-4 deficit. Tim Wheeler hit two home runs (22), the second a two-run homer in the eighth inning. Hector Gomez's two-run homer (8) in the ninth put the Driller up, 8-7. The insurance run came on a James Cesario single to score Brian Rike from second, though the center fielder failed to get the ball properly.
Josh Sullivan allowed six runs, but only two earned, as a result of three errors. He left having walked five and struck out seven. Based on the play-by-play, it appears Sully was ejected after hitting a batter. Daniel Turpen picked up his fifth save with a scoreless ninth.
Modesto, W 20-2
Another thing you don't see that often, a 12-run inning. That's exactly what the Nuts did last night against Stockton. .

Jared Clark picked up his second home run of the season in the seventh inning.
Edwar Cabrera, pitching six innings, allowed one run on five hits and struck out nine over six innings. He picked up seven groundouts.
Asheville, L 4-7
Brett Bochy, son of Bruce, picked up the win over the Tourists on Thursday night after Juan Perez blew the save in the top of the ninth. Perez allowed four runs on two hits and three walks. It ruined a nice start by Joshua Slaats who allowed just two runs over seven innings and struck out five.
Corey Dickerson fell a double short of the cycle, but he did pick up a solo homer (18) and drove in three total. Brett Tanos hit his second home run of the season.
Tri-City, L 5-6
The Dust Devils were able to tie the game at five in the top of the eighth inning on a Timothy Smalling RBI single and a Jared Simon two-run double, but Kenneth Roberts surrendered a home run to Brett Krill in the bottom of the frame to take the loss.
