Tacoma snuck by Salt Lake, 1-0. For the third straight game, Tacoma saw excellent starting pitching backed up by solid outings by the bullpen. Today it was Jorge Campillo's turn as he tossed a total gem going 7.1 innings scattering six hits and walking no one while fanning five. George Sherill came in to toss 1.1 scoreless, hitless innings en route to his fifth save of the year. The Tacoma offense wasn't on fire (two hits all day) but drew seven walks to create a few chances. The one run, however, was unearned.
Jorge Campillo: 7.1 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
Jamal Strong: 0-3, 1 BB.
Shin-soo Choo: 0-3.
Ryan Christianson: 0-2, 2 BB.
Mike Morse: 1-2, 1 2B, 1 BB.
Chris Snelling: 1-2, 2 BB.
Justin Leone: Still out. We're starting to get worried.
San Antonio handled Springfield, 4-2. Another one of those "meh" type starts for Ryan Rowland-Smith, but at least he wasn't Heaverloish. Smith went five innings giving up two runs on four hits while walking three and striking out two. Gary Harris had another three-hit game and Jamie Bubela homered to lead the Mission offense.
Ryan Rowland-Smith: 5.0 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K.
Gary Harris: 3-4, 3 R.
Yuniesky Betancourt: 2-4.
T.J. Bohn: 1-3, 2 RBI.
Jesus Guzman: 1-4, 1 2B.
Jamie Bubela: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
Stockton edged Inland Empire, 4-3. Aaron Trolia kept the 66'ers in it, but it just wasn't enough. Trent Peterson and the strangly used (4 relievers in 3.2 IP?) Stockton bullpen were a notch better and kept the 66'er offense at bay for most of the game. Trolia couldn't do much else but watch in horror as Inland Empire tried to pull a Wisconsin and throw (Cho 2 [throw, throw], Hagan [throw]) the game away.
Aaron Trolia: 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 1 K.
Mike Nesbit: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI.

Matt Rogelstad: 0-4.
Chris Collins: 2-4, 1 2B.
Wisconsin ended their five-game skid by blowing out Dayton, 10-2. With the exception of the otherwise hot-hitting Josh Womack, everyone in starting lineup collected a hit capped by homeruns by Oswaldo Navarro and Robert Johnson. Mumba Rivera had a nice outing as he went 5.2 innings giving up one run on four hits while sitting down seven by way of whiffage.
Mumba Rivera: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR.
Oswaldo Navarro: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 RBI.
Josh Womack: 0-5.
