Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (46-32)_______________________________________
MEMPHIS 5, LAS VEGAS 8 (Box) / 10 innings
- CF Matt den Dekker: 4-6, 3 R, 3B, HR, 3 RBI, K
- 2B Daniel Muno: 0-1, 2 R, 2 BB
- C Travis d'Arnaud: 0-1; Left the game after he was promoted/recalled/whatever the correct terminology is for this. What kind of process is in place if, on an off day for the big league club, you wait until, oh, 11pm EST to decide to promote a player for tomorrow's game? What are you doing all day? It's not as though this decision snuck up on them. Heck, all the beats knew d'Arnaud was going to be back for the Oakland series. I don't get it.
- PH Matt Reynolds: 0-0, R, BB
- PH Allan Dykstra: 1-1
- LF Andrew Brown: 0-1, 4 BB
- 1B Brandon Allen: 1-4, 2 RBI, BB
- 3B Josh Satin: 1-3, RBI, 2 BB, K
- SS Omar Quintanilla: 0-4
- PH-C Juan Centeno: 1-3
- PR Cesar Puello: R; Since going 2-3 with a homer and a walk on Saturday, Puello hasn't gotten a start. If I had any hair left on my head, I would probably pull them out.
- RHP Logan Verrett: 8 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K; Impressive stuff from Verrett.

Star of the Night
Two homers for Brian Burgamy makes this an easy choice.
Goat of the Night
The introduction of short season and rookie ball leagues typically opens the floodgates for GotN candidates. Tonight, the dishonor goes to Andrew Church for allowing four runs on 10 hits in just four innings.
