The Flying Squirrels got a pair of solo HRs--Schroder's 5th HR in the 2nd inning and Lisson's 17th HR in the 4th inning.

After a 1.22 WHIP in seventeen starts before the all-star break, Blach has a 1.50 ERA in his seven starts since.

San Jose: SP Matt Lujan: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K

The Giants' three outfielders each had two hits, and each also stole a bag.

With just 3 ER over his last four starts, Lujan has improved his ERA to 3.38 in eleven Cal League starts.

(scoring two runs in the 9th inning)

Augusta: CF Randy Ortiz: 2 for 4, BB, SO

Ortiz and Callaway each reached base three times.  Callaway's three singles lifted his AVG above .280 since his promotion to the Sally League.

Ysla allowed just 1 ER in through 6.0 IP before not retiring either batter faced in the 7th inning.  Castillo pitched a perfect 9th inning for his 9th save.

ssA: Salem-Keizer lost to Spokane 10-5

Cole went deep for his 3rd HR in the 2nd inning and deep again in the 4th inning for his 4th HR.  In between in the 3rd inning, Ewing connected for his 8th HR.

After four AZL starts, Beede made his NWL debut.  His 3.2 IP was a new high.  He has been rather hittable in his past two starts with 11 H and 4 K in 6.2 IP.  By contrast, he had just 2 H and 9 K in 5.2 IP in his first three starts.

Flores delivered his third straight quality start.
