AAA - Omaha Storm Chasers 7, Colorado Springs Sky Sox 2
Yohan Flande gave up a pair of home runs in the third inning to Brett Hayes and Johnny Giovatella, giving up four runs in the frame and taking his 11th AAA loss this season as the Sky Sox lost to Omaha, 7-2. The only two runs of the game for Colorado Springs came on a two-run home run by Kyle Parker (No. 9 PuRP) in the ninth.

AA - Northwest Arkansas Naturals 2, Tulsa Drillers 1
Carlos Hernandez allowed just a run on six hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts, but was outdueled by Northwest Arkansas' Sugar Ray Marimon in the Drillers' 2-1 loss. The lone Tulsa run of the game came in the seventh on a solo home run by Will Swanner off of the recently-demoted Aaron Crow.

High-A - Visalia Rawhide 6, Modesto Nuts 1
David Dahl's (No. 2 PuRP) RBI double in the top of the sixth was the lone bright spot offensively for the Nuts, as they dropped a 6-1 decision in Visalia. Modesto starter Mike Piazza lasted just 1 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on four hits, two of which were home runs, walking one and striking out one.

A - Asheville Tourists 4, Hagerstown Suns 3
Asheville scored a run in the seventh and a run in the eighth to overcome a 3-2 deficit and take a 4-3 win over Hagerstown. Kyle Freeland (No. 7 PuRP) allowed two runs, one earned, on a hit and a walk in three innings in a performance that actually raised his Asheville ERA to 0.83. Asheville scored the tying run in the seventh on a throwing error by Hagerstown pitcher Jake Johansen and scored the winning run on Ashley Graeter's RBI double in the eighth.

Short-Season A - Tri-City Dust Devils 5, Hillsboro Hops 2
The Dust Devils jumped out to an early lead, scoring five runs in the first two innings to take a 5-0 lead they would not relinquish. Tri-City center fielder Marcos Derkes was a big part of the offensive outburst, doubling in each of the first two innings, scoring twice and driving in a pair. Blake Shouse allowed just a run on two hits in six innings to make the lead stand up.

Rookie - Ogden Raptors 2, Grand Junction Rockies 1
Rockies starter James Lomangino was locked in a duel with Ogden's Jeff Brigham as the two hurlers kept the game scoreless through six innings, but the Raptors scored runs in the seventh and eighth to take a 2-1 win. The lone Grand Junction run came in the eighth when Luis Castro singled, scoring Yonathan Daza.
