-The Topes got out to an early lead with Tim Federowicz's 2 run homer in the 2nd, his 2nd of the year. Lotta 2's. Fernando Nieve would cough up the lead the next inning, allowing 3 runs. Albuquerque would answer back in the 6th with 3 runs of their own on Jeff Baisley's 3rd homer of the year and lead the rest of the way. Savage gave 4.1 quality innings, while Scott Rice allowed his first run of the season. Castellanos stole base #7 and Scott Van Slyke continued his on base streak with a single.
-Matt Magill allowed a run in the first and 7 runs in the second, which seemed like an insurmountable deficit. The Lookouts attempted a comeback, falling a run short in the end. Nick Buss tripled twice, while Pedro Baez, Anthony Jackson, Travis Denker and Luis Nunez doubled. Javier Solano contributed 3 shutout frames.
-Rancho couldn't get its offense going until it was too late. The San Jose Giants put up a 5 spot in the second, shutting down the Quakes' offense until the 7th. Austin Gallagher homered, with four doubles. Joc Pederson went hitless.
-Great Lakes blew a 4-1 lead, allowing 2 runs in both the 5th and 7th inning, dropping their second contest in 3 days. Joe Winker doubled twice, with Scott Schebler and Jesse Bosnik adding two-baggers as well. Schebler has 7 doubles in his last 10 games, with 11 of his 14 hits going for extra bases. He also recorded his first strikeout in almost a week but still hasn't walked.
