Greg Miller - 0.2 IP, 2 Hits, 2 ER, 3 BB, 0 K's

The 51's waited until the last second to score, putting up their only offense in the 9th, but still fell short after being shut out for 8 innings. William Juarez went 5.2 innings, allowing 4 runs. Greg Miller has walked at least 3 batters in 8 of his last 10 outings. Miller is sporting a 6.99 ERA with 44 walks in 28.1 innings. On offense, Matt Kemp raised his average to .321, while Loney's dropped to .270 while playing both RF and 1B. Vegas plays their getaway game tomorrow at 5pm.

Mike Megrew - 5 IP, 6 Hits, 5 ER, 3 BB, 0 K's

The 2 teams combined for 8 runs in the 5th while going scoreless the rest of the way. Megrew was cruising until the 5th, after he'd been handed a 3-0 lead. After recording 2 outs, he allowed a double, 2 singles and a 3 run HR. Xavier Paul had another nice game leading off, hitting his 8th double. Chin Lung Hu smacked his 20th, quite possibly being the first in Baseball to reach 20 doubles. Dunlap drew a walk, while Raglani raised his average to .241. It's getaway day for Jacksonville too after tomorrow's 4:05pm game.

High A - Inland Empire won 8-2

Jamie Hoffman - 1 for 5, K
Blake DeWitt - 0 for 5, RBI, K
Travis Denker - 1 for 4
Lucas May - 1 for 4, K, PB
Ivan De Jesus Jr - 2 for 3, RBI, 2 R, BB, SB
Russell Mitchell - 0 for 3, 2 K's

Javy Guerra - 6 IP, 4 Hits, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 6 K's

Javy Guerra had one of his best starts of the season, earning his 3rd victory. Guerra allowed back to back doubles in the first, leading to a run. A passed ball and a groundout plated the 2nd, which was unearned. But after that, Guerra allowed just 2 singles on his way to lowering his ERA to 4.44. While he uncorked 2 wild pitches, it was his first outing without allowing a walk. De Jesus Jr had a nice game, raising his average to .258 and stealing his 7th base. Ryan Rogowski was a HR away from hitting for the cycle. Lucas May's average has plummeted down to .258 and he allowed his 14th passed ball. Denker's hitting a cool .350. The Empire hosts Lake Elsinore again tomorrow at 7:05pm.

Low A - Great Lakes won 7-6

Trayvon Robinson - 1 for 4, 2 K's, OF Assist
Josh Bell - 1 for 4, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K
Preston Mattingly - 1 for 4, R, 2 K's, E
Scott Van Slyke - 1 for 4, HR (1), 2 RBI, 2 R, K

Miguel Sanfler - 1 IP, 2 Hits, ER, BB, 0 K's

It was a thriller, coming down to the final at bat to decide the game. Arismendy Castillo allowed 5 ER in the 2nd inning, raising his ERA to 6.39. The Loons mounted a comeback, scoring 3 times in the 5th and again in the 7th to pull within a run. But in the top of the 9th, Sanfler gave up a run to fall behind 6-4. So the Loons went to the bottom of the 9th with a difficult task ahead. It looked even worse after Van Slyke lead off the inning with a strikeout and after Apodaca singled, Matt Berezay pinch hit for Trayvon Robinson but struck out to give the Loons one last hope. Bridger Hunt singled to put the tying run on base and Adolfo Gonzalez singled to again bring the Loons within a run. After a new pitcher was brought in, it came down to the red hot Josh Bell and he came through with a walk-off double, his 10th of the year. Though Bell's hit streak ended at 15, he's extended his on-base streak to 17 games. Van Slyke clubbed his first shtonk of the season, while Preston Mattingly committed his 16th error. The series finale will be played tomorrow at 4pm.
