AAA - Las Vegas 51's (10-10)_______________________________________
TACOMA 10, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)
When you make 19 outs before actually getting your first hit, it tends to not correlate well with winning baseball. The 51s offense was nothing short of putrid last night as in six out of the nine innings they went down in order. Carlos Torres was bad, the subsequent bullpen help was bad, and the hitting followed suit. Josh Satin had two of the four Las Vegas hits. Not a good night for our Pacific League heroes.

Dustin Lawley went deep twice pacing our Florida State League heroes to a 5-2 win over the Bradenton Marauders. Angel Cuan was better this start (which is not saying much after his debacle against Fort Myers), pitching five solid innings before turning the game over to T.J. Chism and Jim Fuller, each of whom pitched two innings of shutout, three-strikeout ball.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (13-8)__________________________________
WEST VIRGINIA 2, SAVANNAH 4 (Box)
Steven Matz was decent in his outing tonight, as he left the game with a 3-2 lead in the top of the fifth before conceding to the Sand Gnat bullpen who made said lead lead stick in a 4-2 win. Savannah, keep making me happy please, your older siblings in the organization keep making me sad.
