Tacoma edged Las Vega, 3-2. Just about every Tacoma pitcher managed to come to the mound in this one. Foppert started followed by a third of an inning by Sean Green. Then came Rafael Soriano followed by some work from Clint Nageotte, Andrew Lorraine and finally Masao Kida. No one really seems to know just what in the hell Rohn was doing, but it worked. Shin-soo Choo led the offense with two hits and a double as he trys to inch his was back to a .400 SLG (currently .399).
Jesse Foppert: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K.
Rafael Soriano: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K.
Clint Nageotte: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HR.

Bucky Jacobsen: 1-3, 1 BB.
Justin Leone: 1-3, 1 RBI.
T.J. Bohn: 0-3.
Tulsa snuck by San Antonio, 2-1. Not a terrible effort from Juan Sandoval who goes 5.2 innings giving up two runs on eight hits while walking no one and fanning five. However, when your offense is being shut down, two runs is more than you can spare. Jon Nelson was the only guy to go multi-hit for the Missions in this one.
Juan Sandoval: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
Jamie Bubela: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI.

Gary Harris: 1-2, 2 BB.
Ismael Castro: 1-4, 1 2B.
Jon Nelson: 2-4, 1 2B.
Wisconsin hammered Burlington, 10-2. Julio Santiago looked good in this one as he managed to go six innings giving up just an unearned run on six hits while not walking a soul and striking out seven. I think that's probably his most dominant effort this season. The offense had a field day on Burlington pitching as five players; Brent Johnson, Josh Womack, Yung Chi Chen, Thomas Hubbard and Jeff Clement, all had multi-hit nights.
Julio Santiago: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K.
Brent Johnson: 2-4, 1 BB.
Josh Womack: 3-5, 1 RBI.
Yung Chi Chen: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI.
Thomas Hubbard: 3-4, 1 2B, 3 RBI.
Matt Tuiasosopo: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI.
Jeff Clement: 3-5, 1 RBI.
Omar Falcon: 1-2, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 RBI. (.278/.403/.444. Not a bad season for the King of K's. He's struck out 43 times in 126 AB, a 34% rate, a bit lower than his career rate of 40% -- 346 K's in 844 AB.)
