Round Rock routed Tacoma, 12-5. Andrew Lorraine had a pretty typical Andrew Lorraine evening as he went 4.1 unimpressive innings giving up six runs on nine hits. Always an adventure, Jeff Heaverlo got the call next and was lit up like a Christmas tree for the 312th time this season. Something is wrong with Heaverlo. I wanted to think for awhile it was just nerves and his head was screwing with him, but maybe he's still injured. He was never THIS bad before so keep an eye out on just what the organization does with him. The Rainiers were pretty flaccid with the bats this evening other than a two homerun performance from Hunter Brown. Abraham Nunez also homered for good measure.
Andrew Lorraine: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 K.
Jeff Heaverlo: 1.0 IP, 3 H, 5 ER (to be fair, I am obligated to note that two of those runs were inherited by Jared Thomas who let them both score on a homer), 3 BB, 1 K.
Jamal Strong: 0-4.
Shin-soo Choo: 0-3, 1 BB.
Abraham Nunez: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI.
Ryan Christianson: 2-4, 1 RBI.
Chris Snelling: 1-4.
Hunter Brown: 2-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI.
Frisco edged San Antonio in a marathon, 11-10 (14). Quite a see-saw of a game as Frisco went up by three early and then San Antonio fired right back by going up three until the the bottom of the seventh when Frisco regained the lead. San Antonio tied it in the ninth via an RBI groundout from Jon Nelson. Cesar Jimenez then came in and pitched a scoreless 12th and 13th before disaster struck in the 14th:
Juan Senreiso singles on a line drive to right fielder Thomas BohnJr. Seth Taylor to 2nd.
Joaquin Arias singles on a fly ball to center fielder Gary Harris. Seth Taylor scores. Juan Senreiso to 2nd
Tough one to lose.
Thomas Oldham was the starter and wasn't much like the pitcher we know and love. Oldham only lasted four innings and gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits while walking three and fanning three. Two of the seven hits he gave up were homeruns. Offensively, the Missions were led by four hits from Nate Espy, three hits from Ismael Castro and a triple and three RBI from Jon Nelson.
Thomas Oldham: 4.0 IP, 7 H, 6 R< 5 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, 2 HR.
Yuniesky Betancourt: 0-6, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
Jesus Guzman 1-4, 1 HR, 1 RBI.
T.J. Bohn: 2-7, 1 RBI.
Nate Espy: 4-6, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
Jon Nelson: 1-5, 1 3B, 3 RBI.
Jamie Bubela: 2-6, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
Ismael Castro: 3-7, 1 2B.
Inland Empire shutout Lake Elsinore, 1-0. Shine away Jason Mackintosh. Mackintosh was hit (9 H) but escaped any kind of run damage and issued only a single free pass as he held the Storm scoreless through seven innings. Miguel Martinez and Michael Steele finished it out in the 8th and 9th, respectively. Obviously, there wasn't much offensive for the 66'er side either, but Michael Nesbit did have three hits and Adam Jones sacrifice flied him home in the sixth inning to pick up the only run Inland Empire would need.
Jason Mackintosh: 7.0 IP, 9 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K.
Michael Nesbit: 3-4, 1 2B.
Matt Rogelstad: 2-4.
Adam Jones: 0-3, 1 RBI.
Bryan Lahair: 1-4.
Matt Hagan: 2-3.
Wisconsin beat West Michigan, 8-3. Mumba Rivera moved to 5-0 on the season with another solid performance turned in.

Sebastien Boucher, Matt Tuiasosopo and Josh Womack all had multi-hit nights to lead the Timber Rattlers.
Mumba Rivera: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 2 K.
Sebastien Boucher: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
