Apparently Devin's still being intermittently blocked from the site by his network for no particular reason, so I have to swoop in and cover for him in the meantime. Stupid internet. So, in protest, I'll put hardly any effort into this at all, seeing as how it's already 7pm out here.
Tacoma beat Round Rock 2-1 in ten innings. As pretty much everyone already knew, it was Chris Snelling's AAA debut after spending the first month of the season working in Arizona, and it didn't take long for him to get going, as he won the game with a walk-off single off the wall in the bottom of the tenth. Kudos to Cesar Jimenez for keeping things in control for seven innings, and to Renee Cortez for slamming the door out of the bullpen. Notables:
Jimenez: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Snelling: 2-4, 1 BB
Bohn: 1-4, 1 BB
Choo: 0-4, 1 BB
San Antonio's game was wiped out.
Inland Empire dropped a tough one to Modesto, 6-4 in twelve innings. Up 4-2 in the bottom of the eighth, the 66ers allowed a run in each of the next two innings to tie it at four. It could've been a lot worse in the ninth...
* Jonathan Herrera turns around to bat right-handed.
* Jonathan Herrera reaches on fielding error by first baseman Marshall Hubbard.
* Matthew Miller singles on a ground ball to left fielder Josh Womack. Jonathan Herrera advances to 3rd, on fielding error by left fielder Josh Womack.
* Stephen Kahn intentionally walks Doc Brooks. Matthew Miller to 2nd.
* With Duke Sardinha batting, wild pitch by Stephen Kahn, Jonathan Herrera scores. Matthew Miller to 3rd. Doc Brooks to 2nd.
* Stephen Kahn intentionally walks Duke Sardinha.
* Anthony Granato strikes out swinging.
* Christopher Frey grounds into double play, third baseman Erick Monzon to second baseman Yung Chi Chen to first baseman Marshall Hubbard. Duke Sardinha out at 2nd.
...but Kahn got out of trouble, only to watch Jose de la Cruz give it away three frames later on a two-run homer. Shawn Nottingham was good out of the gate, and Yung-chi Chen and Reed Eastley each reached base three times to pace the offense, but it wasn't enough. Notables:
Nottingham: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 BB, 8 K
Chen: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 BB
Eastley: 2-5, 1 BB
Wilson: 1-5, 1 3B, 1 BB
Prettyman: 1-5, 1 2B
Wisconsin fell to Quad Cities, 6-2. Boring game all around, made worse by Eddie Guaramoto allowing three runs in the top of the ninth to put the game out of reach. Paul Fagan was decent for five innings, but he didn't get much help from the lineup. Outside of Luis Valbuena, that is, who reached base three times and stole three bases. Eddy Hernandez also had a pair of singles. Notables:
Fagan: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
Valbuena: 1-2, 1 BB, 1 HBP
Dominguez: 0-3, 1 BB
