Modesto 6, San Jose 1 | MiLB.com Box |

Player of the Game: Zach Jemiola

Everyone in the Nuts starting lineup except for Troy Stein (who is having a good season) recorded a hit as Modesto singled San Jose to death.

Raimel Tapia had a hit and a walk in four at-bats and scored once. A day like that actually brings his numbers down.

Tapia is hitting just .211 over his last ten games, but he has eight hits during that span.

Ryan McMahon's RBI double was one of only two extra base hits for the Nuts. He is hitting .351 over his last ten which has raised his season OPS (103 games) to .907.

Zach Jemiola tossed exactly the kind of outing that earned him his spot on this year's PuRPs list: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K

And then there is this:

When I saw Zach pitch in Grand Junction, he didn't have that kind of velocity. He topped out at 94 at best, usually sitting 90-93. His change-up is his best pitch and his craftiness is his best weapon. But he is a big dude and may be getting stronger. This is something to keep an eye on.

In 12 games since joining Modesto, Jemiola has pitched at least six complete innings nine times. The other three were all more than five.

This is his third seven-inning game at High-A. Bullpens love this guy.

Player of the Game: Roger Bernadina

Bernadina Blasts Two-Run Walk-Off Homer | Albuquerque Isotopes News

Roger Bernadina's 10th inning walk-off home run gave the Albuquerque Isotopes (49-63) a 6-4 win against the El Paso Chihuahuas (57-53) Wednesday night at Isotopes Park. Bernadina finished the game 3-for-5 with two doubles, a homer, two runs scored and three RBI.

Albuquerque took an early lead on Tommy Murphy's solo home run in the second before El Paso responded with a pair in the fourth. The Topes plated a pair of their own in the fourth to retake the lead, and added another in the fifth on an Angelys Nina two-out single. The Chihuahuas chipped away with runs in the sixth and eighth to tie it and send the game to extras. After escaping a bases loaded jam in the top of the 10th, the Isotopes led off the home half of the inning with a single before Roger Bernadina blasted his game-winning two-run shot over the left field wall.

Trevor Story added a two-hit day including a double, bringing his OPS in his first 30 games at Triple-A to .856.

Murphy's home run was his second in 11 games since being called up to the Isotopes.

Cristhian Adames continues to hit, going 2-3 with two walks. He has hit .305/.350/.425 with only 42 strikeouts in 93 games this season.

Miguel Castro blew his second save since coming over in the Tulowitzki trade.

David Hale got the start and gave up two runs in five innings.

New Britain 4, Altoona 1 | MiLB.com Box |

Player of the Game: Shane Carle

David Dahl scored twice without the benefit of a hit, walking once and reaching via (a somewhat speed induced) error. In the 18 games since the all-star break, Dahl is hitting .309/.319/.485.

Noel Cuevas drove in two with his second home run of the year.

Jordan Patterson got a hit and scored a run, extending his seven-game hit streak. He has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games. He has a .987 OPS in 18 games with New Britain.

Mike Tauchman had the only multi-hit day for the Rock Cats.

Shane Carle pitched six innings and gave up only one run on three hits. He struck out eight and walked two. Carle has a 3.59 ERA in 21 starts this season. He has struck out 80 and walked 25.

Sam Moll struck out two during his one-inning hold and Carlos Estevez recorded his seventh save (in nine opportunities) since being moved up to Double-A.


DSL Rockies 10, DSL Red Sox1 1 | MiLB.com Box |

Joel Diaz went 2-3 with three RBI and hit his fifth home run of the season. Diaz is OPS'ing .843 in 48 games.

Manuel Melendez went 3-4 with a double and two RBI. The 18-year old center-fielder has an OPS of .763 in 51 games.

Pedro Gonzalez was moved down in the order after a recent slump. He is hitting just .162 in his last ten games but he responded to the demotion by going 2-4 and scoring twice.

Kannapolis 7, Asheville 2 | MiLB.com Box |

Sweep Not In The Cards As Asheville Falls 7-2 In K'Town | Asheville Tourists News

The Tourists scored the first two runs of the game off Intimidators' starter Yelmison Peralta. Robbie Perkins came to the plate in the top of the second inning and tripled home Max White. After a Ryan Stephens pop out, Perkins scored on a groundball hit by Luis Jean that involved a throwing error by shortstop Ryan Leonards. Asheville's 2-0 lead was short lived as Kannapolis rallied to score four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Three consecutive singles loaded the bases and Brett Austin's double cleared them. Austin would later score on a passed ball. Peralta never found himself in another jam as the right-hander worked a career high seven innings. In the bottom of the sixth, the Intimidators struck for three more. Toby Thomas hit a two-run double and Cody Daily added a sacrifice fly.

Forrest Wall, playing in his first game with Asheville in over a month, finished 2-for-3 with a triple and a walk.

Wall also stole his 17th base of the season.

Ryan Castellani pitched five innings, giving up three earned runs on six hits. He struck out three and walked one. Castellani has a 4.12 ERA in his first 21 games in full-season ball. He won't turn 20 until next April.
