Fresno blanked Tacoma, 3-0. With the exception of an early unearned run, Felix Hernandez came out hitting on all cylinders and he pitched six solid innings. The offense did not as Jesse Foppert was lights out (He K'd 9 in only 5 innings of work). Wiki Gonzalez and Shin-Soo Choo both picked up doubles in a fruitless effort. The Rainiers committed four errors on the evening.

Notables:

Felix Hernandez: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 K, 1 BB.
Jamal Strong: 1-4.
Kit Pellow: 1-4.
Wiki Gonzalez: 2-4, 1 2B.
Shin-Soo Choo: 2-3, 1 2B.
Mike Morse: 1-1, 2 BB.
Ramon Santiago: Had trouble picking it up and throwing it.

San Antonio squeaked by Corpus Christi in extras, 3-2 (11). Jason Hirsh carried a no-hitter into the seventh before Ismael Castro broke it up with a single. For the second time in as many nights, Jon Nelson was the hero as he singled home Jamie Bubela in the eleventh. Juan Sandoval went eight in what was an effective yet unsupported start.

Notables:

Juan Sandoval: 8 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K.
Yuniesky Betancourt: 1-5.
Nate Espy: 0-3.
Thomas Bohn Jr.: 0-4.
Jon Nelson: 1-5, 1 RBI.
Ismael Castro: 1-4, 1 RBI.
Rene Rivera: 0-4, 2 K.

Bakersfield ran over Inland Empire, 6-1. It was a long night for the Inland Empire pitching staff as Bakersfield piled on fourteen hits en route to beating Ryan Feierabend. Some 66er offense probably would have been nice, but everyone seemed to take the night off. Oh well, hopefully they are back from vacation for tonight's rubber match.

Notables:

Ryan Feierabend: 4 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K.
Nibaldo Acosta: 4 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 3 K.
Juan Gonzalez: 0-4.
Matt Rogelstad: 2-4.
Adam Jones: 0-3, 2 K.
Bryan LaHair: 1-2, 2 BB.
Wladimir Balentien: 0-4.
Chris Colton: 0-3.
Justin Ruchti: 0-3.

Peoria smashed Wisconsin, 9-0. While Aaron Jensen wasn't getting lit up, the Wisconsin defense looked like a bunch toddlers fielding beachballs as they committed four errors on the night. Jensen was torched for five hits and six runs (though only one was earned) in four innings. Like Inland Empire, a two-run lead after the first must of looked like a mountian as the offense never tried.

Notables:

Aaron Jensen: 4 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K.
Oswaldo Navarro: 2-4, 1 2B.
Yung Chi Chen: 0-4.
Matt Tuiasosopo: 1-4.
Robert Johnson: 1-3.
