It was a rough night for San Antonio starting pitcher Josh Geer, who let up 5 ER in 5 IP and took the loss, now putting him at (2-6). Five different players for the Roughriders knocked in runs, and starting pitcher Luke Jackson pitched six scoreless innings with 4 Ks en route to his 7th win of the season.

The Lake Elsinore Storm defeated the Modesto Nuts 9-7 in 13 innings.

The Nuts jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the 5th inning in big part due to home runs from Patrick Valaika and Jordan Ribera, who both knocked in two runs. Lake Elsinore fired back in the top of the 8th, where Quintana blasted a two-run homer, sparking a five run rally to tie the game. Bryce Morrow got roughed up, allowing 7 ER in 5 IP, but was let of the hook. Trevor Gott notched his 16th save of the game, striking out two of three batters.
