Omaha 3 (KC + 13), Tacoma 2
Omaha is of a different strength from Iowa. LHP Anthony Vasquez (3.21, PO, L) let three runs score on seven hits, two walks, and two Ks in seven innings. RHP Steve Delabar (0.00) had a K in the eighth, but RHP Shawn Kelley (3.12) had three of them in the ninth.
CF Greg Halman (CS, .329) and SS Carlos Triunfel (R, .200) both had two hits in the game and 1B Matt Tuiasosopo (R, .228) walked twice.

Tennessee 11 (CHC + 5), Jackson 6
Tennessee has one of the more potent offenses in the league, in spite of relatively few walks, so I look at this particular series as an opportunity to gauge where the pitching staff is at. I can't give great marks for RHP Kenn Kasparek (4.66, E, L) who gave up seven runs through five innings on six hits (HR), three walks, and five Ks, but only two of those runs were earned, so something else may be at play there. RHP Daniel Cooper (6.49) got through the next three allowing a run on a hit, a wild pitch, a walk, and a K, which is promising, but RHP Stephen Penney (5.09), who I've said had struggled this year a lot more than I thought he would, let three runs (two earned) plate on three hits and a K in the ninth.
2B Scott Savastano (2 HR, 3 RBI, E, .294) hit two home runs in the leadoff spot and is close to double digits now. Let us pause at this time to consider that the home run leader for the Generals, Chavez, only has thirteen dingers this year, and behind him is Shaffer, who has eleven and has hit two home runs since knocking out six in May. 3B Francisco Martinez (RBI, 2 E, .276) had four singles, so that happened. SS Gabriel Noriega (RBI, .267) added two singles and RF Chih-Hsien Chiang (2B, R, .241), LF-1B Vinnie Catricala (.355), CF-LF Kuo-hui Lo (R, .248), and C Jesus Sucre (R, .220) all had a hit and a walk.

Inland Empire 7 (ANA + 4), High Desert 1 (seven innings)
RHP Taylor Stanton (6.21, L) pitched all seven and let seven score on eight hits (2 HR), a walk, and seven Ks, which is different from the Sixers' starter pitching all seven innings and letting a run score on six hits, four walks, and eight Ks.
1B Mario Martinez (.285) had two hits and CF Denny Almonte (2B, RBI, .272) and 2B Jake Schlander (2B, .276) both had doubles and Almonte walked.

Inland Empire 5 (ANA + 3), High Desert 7 (seven innings)
Bwahaha Angels affiliate. The unlikely RHP Stephen Kahn (7.20) started this one out and let three plate in three and two-thirds innings on four hits (HR), a wild pitch, and a walk. RHP Austin Hudson (6.13) let two plate on four hits in the next frame and a third and then RHP Willy Kelser (3.77, W), who had a hit, a walk, and two Ks to his line in two innings, came away with the win.
In the bottom of the seventh, Marcoe was plunked, then there were three consecutive singles by Dunigan, LF Daniel Carroll (R, 1-3, BB, .288), and Bonilla to score Marcoe and leave the bases loaded, McOwen hit a sac fly off a new pitcher, and then DH Steve Proscia (HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2-4, .336) hit a home run. AWESOME.

Everett 5, Eugene 0 (SD - 1)
LHP Camercon Hobson (2.30, W) got five innings in and allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five. Man, the Aquasox are just rolling. RHP Bryan Leigh (4.79) had two wild pitches, three walks and a K in the next two and RHP Jeroen de Haas (8.44) had two hits, a hit batter, two walks, and two Ks in the final two.
C Larry Gonzalez (HR, 4 RBI, .253) hit a home run in the fourth, which was also his first of the year, which was also a grand slam. LF Jabari Blash (2B, R, .289) doubled and 3B Jharmidy de Jesus (.322) and DH Ramon Morla (R, .304) both had a hit and a walk.

Greenville 3 (HOU - 9), Pulaski 4
RHP Ambioris Hidalgo (3.89) gave up three runs on five hits, a plunked batter, two walks, and four Ks through four innings. RHP Benjamin Cornwell (4.41) followed that with a fine relief outing where he allowed a hit and struck out four. RHP Bobby Shore (2.02) and RHP Joshua Corrales (0.00, W) split the final two innings without much happening, save that Shore struck out one and Corrales won.
3B Dillon Hazlett (HR, .224) was the leadoff batter in the ninth and hit the walkoff as his first pro home run. Neat. RF Alfredo Morales (2 2B, 2 RBI, .250) and SS Bryan Brito (.232) both had two hits and 2B Dan Paolini (2 R, .282) had a single and a walk.

AZL Dodgers 6, Peoria Mariners 5
RHP David Holman (5.68) started and had a strikeout in the three innings he pitched. From there, RHP Min-sih Chen (6.65) gave up three runs on four hits (HR), a walk, and three Ks in four innings, the silver lining of which is that he was throwing strikes. RHP Maxx Catapano (6.29, PO, BS, L) let two plate on two hits, a balk, a walk, and a K in two-thirds of an inning. LHP Scott Ronnenbergh (5.54) let a run score on two hits (HR) and two Ks in the final frame and a third and scored one of Catapano's runs.
3B Yidid Batista (RBI, CS, .318) had three hits batting ninth. His numbers are superficially good, but he's a four-year VSL vet playing the AZL. 2B Felipe Burin (.342) and PH-DH Esteilon Peguero (2B, RBI, .276) both had two hits in the game and LF Phillips Castillo (2B, R, RBI, .321) doubled. Franklin had a single and a run scored and struck out only twice, which is progress.

DSL Rays 6 (0), Yamasa Mariners 3
If the M's end up losing first place in their division due to late season incompetence, I just don't know what I'll do. RHP Rigoberto Garcia (4.01, L) gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits (HR), a walk, a hit batter, and six Ks. RHP Junior Nunez (4.32) then let a run score on a hit and a walk in the next two and a third innings, but LHP Leoncio Munoz (3.95) scored that run with one hit in the inning that he pitch. That's uneven, but the game wrapped up a few outs early due to weather.
SS Ketel Marte (.257), DH Axel Wel (2B, R, .264), and RF Gabriel Guerrero (2B, R, SB. .230) all had two hits and 3B George Soto (2B, RBI, SB, E, .227) doubled.
