Game Notes - Fresno's offense was held quiet, while the visiting Zephyrs had the lead quite literally the entire game. New Orleans center fielder Bryan Petersen led off the game with a home run, putting Fresno behind immediately. They would never recover, and New Orleans would add an insurance run in the sixth with a double and single to go up 2-0.

Team Notes - Pill hit his second double in as many days, to keep him in the team lead in the stat...Travis Ishikawa broke a 1-for-7 slump with his double...Brandon Belt has batted 11-for-34 with two doubles and two home runs over his last ten games...Shane Loux bounced back well from his last start, where he gave up seven earned runs in five innings...Henry Sosa was also coming back from a game where he gave up seven earned runs, although in just one inning of work.

Jason Stoffel 1.0 1 0 0 1 1 0 3.94 S (6), 1 E (1)

Game Notes - Richmond was able to hold onto this one. Reading got on the board first, taking a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. But Roger Kieschnick tied the game in the second, with a solo home run in the top of the second. In the sixth, Charlie Culberson started a new rally with a one-out double, and scored on a Ryan Lormand single. Later in the inning, Kieschnick hit a two-run triple to put Richmond up 4-1. However, Reading fought back with runs in the seventh and the eighth, closing the deficit to one run. But after a single and an error on a sacrifice bunt, Reading had runners on second and third with no body out in the ninth. Closer Jason Stoffel struck out the next batter, and after an intentional walk loaded the bases, Stoffel got the 5-4-3 double play to hold onto the game.

Team Notes - It was a game of firsts for Kieschnick. His triple and home run were both his first of this season. He had three triples and four home runs in 60 games during the 2010 season with Richmond...Culberson picked up his third double over the last seven games. He has ten doubles, keeping him one ahead of Kieschnick and Juan Perez for the team lead...Justin Fitzgerald has a 5.48 ERA over his last four starts...In another first of the night, Alex Hinshaw picked up his first Double-A hold of the season in his second game with Richmond...Jason Stoffel picked up his second save in consecutive opportunities, despite the troubles. The intentional walk was his first since May 10th, a span of four innings.

Game Notes - A powerful first inning powered a San Jose rout in Modesto. Gary Brown led off the game with a home run, and after a Brandon Crawford walk, Hector Sanchez hit a two-run home run to give San Jose a 3-0 lead after one. After adding a run in the third, San Jose busted the game open in the fifth. Tommy Joseph hit a two-run single, Wendell Fairley and Crawford added RBI singles and a wild pitch allowed a fifth run to score, and San Jose had a 9-0 lead. Modesto broke the shutout in the sixth, but that would be all they could muster.

Team Notes - Hector Sanchez has hit four of his five home runs in the month of May, and is batting .307 in the month...Gary Brown's home run is his fourth extra-base hit in the last five games, as he's batted 11-for-25 over that span...Dominguez had his first multi-hit game since hitting five in May 16th's 18-inning game...Kelvin Marte had his longest outing of the season, giving up just one run in eight innings, bouncing back from a seven-run game last week against Stockton.
