Minor League Player of the Day – Yasiel Puig (Arizona) 3 for 4, 1 HR, 2 Runs, 1 RBI. Puig did his damage across two games of a double header, and is now hitting .400 over his 6 game career.
AAA – The Isotopes were sans Sands and were unable to make up for his absence in a 14 - 11 loss to the Padres. Albuquerque was actually cruising in this game after a 8-run 5th that put them up 10 to 2, but a 5-run 6th and a 7-run 8th by Tuscon put them in line for the victory. Blake Johnson started this game and was in control until the 6th which is when he allowed 4 of his 5 runs, then Luis Vasquez gave up 2 runs in relief. Stephen Fife got his work in out of the bullpen but permitted 3 unearned runs to score, while Scott Rice walked 3 batters which all came around to score in the 8th. At the plate the Isotopes had 4 different batters who recorded 2 RBI's, starting with Tim Federowicz who went 3 for 4 with a double. Ivan De Jesus also drove in two with a pair of singles, while Scott Van Slyke's double brought home a pair as well.
AA – Zach Lee had the best start of his Southern League career yet the Lookouts still lost to the Braves 2 to 1. Lee allowed just 4 hits over 6 shutout innings and did not walk a batter, striking out 3 and posting a 11 to 1 ground-out to fly-out ratio. Eric Eadington gave up 2 runs in relief, however, and that's what lost the game for Chattanooga. Despite the loss it should be noted that Steve Ames and Steven Rodriguez did not allow a hit over the final 2 frames. At the plate the Lookouts were pretty quiet as Jake Lemmerman's double was the only extra base hit and drove in the team's only run. J.T. Wise continued his multi-game hit streak as he collected more than one base knock for the 4th game in a row.
HiA – Off day
LoA – The Loons beat the Dragons (Reds) 5 to 2 on Monday despite getting outhit. Arismendy Ozoria allowed 8 hits and 2 walks over 6 frames, but only permitted 2 runs to score and recorded the win. Juan Noriega, Daniel Coulombe, and Juan Rodriguez finished the game with a shutout inning each, with Scrap Medal picking up his first save of the year. At the dish Scott Schebler went 2 for 4 with a pair of doubles and a RBI, while Jeff Hunt also had 2 hits and a run batted in. O'Koyea Dickson saw his RBI streak end at 4 games but he did collect a two-bagger.
Rookie Ogden – The Raptors played a marathon game but finally lost to the Chukars (Royals) 6 to 5 in 15 innings. Carlos Frias started the 4 and a half hour game and allowed just 1 earned run over 5 frames, but Derek Cone allowed Idaho Falls to tie it the 7th which is what eventually sent the game into extras. A trio of Ogden bullpen arms provided nice relief work until APU alum Alan Garcia forced in the winning run with a walk-off walk. At the plate Ogden had 14 hits, but only two went for extra bases. Corey Seager stayed hot by going 3 for 7 with a triple (but he did have 2 errors in the field), while Jose Capellan had 2 singles and a double in 7 at bats.
Rookie Arizona Game 1 – The Arizona Dodgers won the first game of their double header against he Dbacks 6 to 4. Leo Rodriguez had the only extra base hit of the game, a double, but Yasiel Puig did go 2 for 2 with a walk. On the mound Victor Araujo allowed 4 runs over 5 innings but got the win, while Travis Jones picked up the save with a scoreless frame.
Rookie Arizona Game 2 –The Arizona Dodgers won the second game against the Dbacks by a score of 10 to 5. Jhosue Bermudez made his U.S. debut and allowed just 1 hit over 3 innings, although he did walk 2 and gave up an unearned run. Jordan Hershiser picked up the win in relief despite permitting two runs to score. On offense Yasiel Puig hit another homer, his 3rd of the year, and Paul Hoenecke went 2 for 4 with a 3-run jack and 4 RBI's.
DSL – The Dominican Dodgers beat the Cardinals 5 to 3 behind just 4 hits. Yensys Capellan hit a 2-run homer and Josmar Cordero went 2 for 4, but the Dodgers mostly took advantage of 6 Cardinal errors.
