Double-A - New Britain Rock Cats 7, Richmond Flying Squirrels 3
Despite not recording a single extra-base hit, the Rock Cats scored seven runs, including six in the fourth inning, in a 7-3 win over Richmond. New Britain trailed 1-0 entering the top of the fourth, but scored six runs on six hits with a walk and an error to take a 6-1 lead they would not relinquish. Starting pitcher Shane Carle allowed three runs, all earned, on 10 hits in seven innings pitched with no walks and three strikeouts.

Short-Season A - Tri-City Dust Devils 5, Boise Hawks 2
In his first professional outing, 21st-round pick Drasen Johnson allowed three runs on six hits in 3⅔ innings, walking one and striking out three. Catcher Yonathan Daza was 3-for-4 with a run scored and second baseman Max George hit his first home run of the season, but the Haws were held scoreless after the first inning, losing 5-2 and dropping to 2-3 on the season.

Rookie - Orem Owlz 8, Grand Junction Rockies 2
Three Owlz pitchers held the Rockies without a baserunner until the sixth inning as Grand Junction took an 8-2 loss in their home opener. Down 2-0 with two outs in the sixth, designated hitter Chase Anderson hit his first home run of the season to break up the perfect game, no-hitter and shutout in one fell swoop. However, Orem put the game out of reach with a six-run seventh inning to take an 8-1 lead that they maintained handily.

DSL - DSL Rockies 7, DSL Mets1 2
Shortstop Pedro Gonzalez hit his fifth home run of the season as the Rockies improved to 9-11 with a 7-2 win over the Mets. Pitcher Yohander Quintana allowed two runs on six hits in five innings, striking out six to get his third win of the season as the Rockies scored three runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to support him.
