Despite 3 BB, Burres had a solid, although abbreviated, start in his third start since returning from the DL. Otero struck out three of his four batters in the 7th inning. Martinez, the ex-Giant, allowed more than two baserunners per inning as he had a bit of a rough start.
AA: Richmond defeated Harrisburg 3-2

Weeks was one of three Flying Squirrels with two hits.
Kickham had another solid start. In ten starts since the all-star break, he has pitched into the 7th inning six times. Perry, the Tigers' first round pick four years ago who is now with the Nationals, had allowed just 1 ER over his previous two starts against the Flying Squirrels but was touched for 2 ER in this start. Converting to a starting role, the 25-year-old has a sub-3.00 ERA after 13 starts.
