Triple-A: Tucson Padres 4 – Salt Lake Bees 5
The game went 15 innings, and the Tucson Padres were not able to pull it out (sound familiar). Wade LeBlanc pitched in his 2nd game and did much better, going 7 innings and striking out 5 while giving up 3 runs. 2B Logan Forsythe finally had a tough night at the plate going 1-for-7 with 3 strikeouts.
Double-A: San Antonio Missions 6 – Tulsa Drillers 0

Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 5 – Lake Elsinore Storm 2
Class A: Fort Wayne TinCaps 0 – Bowling Green Hot Rods 1
Mark Hardy suffered the tough luck loss pitching 6 innings and only giving up 1 run with 5 strikeouts. The offense was not able to give him any run support… sounds a little like the big league club. Two of our top prospects, Donavan Tate and Everett Williams, were involved in a collision in the outfield and both left the game.
