Noel Cuevas, seen here with the Quakes, had the game winning hit for the Lookouts on Tuesday - Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

A two run triple by Noel Cuevas and a two-run homer by Jon Garcia were the game winning hits for the Lookouts and Quakes, respectively

Minor League Player of the DayAdam Law (HiA) - 3 for 4, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI's.  While he has yet to homer in his professional career, Law has hit for average at every stop of the way during his brief time in the minor leagues.  After hitting a combined .343 in the rookie leagues last year, Adam is now batting .322 for the Quakes through 33 games.

AAA – Despite collecting just 6 hits on Tuesday, the Isotopes beat the Bees (Angels) 5 to 3.  Albuquerque starter Zach Lee began the game with 5 shutout innings, and while he eventually gave up 3 runs on 7 hits, he did not walk a batter and picked up his 5th win of the year.  Pedro Baez and Paco Rodriguez provided solid relief, then Jose Dominguez recorded a 4 out save; his 4th of the year.  At the plate Miguel Rojas connected on his second homer in as many days, and actually all 4 of his long balls this year have surprisingly come in the last 7 games.  Clint Robinson had a RBI double while Joc Pederson and Mike Baxter collected triples to round out the extra base hits in this contest.

AA – Noel Cuevas connected on a 2-run triple in the bottom of the 8th to propel the Lookouts a 4 - 2 win over the BayBears (Dbacks).  It was part of a 3-RBI game for Cuevas who is hitting just .200 for the season.  Prior to Noel's big hit Scott Schbler had tied the game with a RBI single, while Chris O'Brien was solid throughout the contest as he went 3 for 4 with a double.  It was a bit of a bullpen game for Chattanooga who gave Matt Shelton his first start of the season.  Shelton responded extremely well by tossing 3 innings of 1-hit ball.  Andres Santiago then followed with 4 shutout frames, striking out 5 along the way.  Mike Thomas allowed Mobile to tie the game in the top of the 8th before the offensive outburst in the bottom of the inning.

HiA – The Quakes used a late rally to overcome Visalia (Dbacks) 6 to 5 on Tuesday.  Down by two heading into the 8th, Brandon Dixon started the comeback with a leadoff double.  One out later Aaron Miller doubled him home, then Jon Garcia followed with what turned out to be the game winning two-run homer.  Adam Law drove in a pair of runs and fell a homer shy of hitting for the cycle, while Steven Proscia also had 3 hits in this game including a two-bagger.  On the mound Fabio Martinez showed better control than his last outing as he allowed 2 earned runs on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out 5.  Robert Carson struggled in relief which put Rancho behind, but the rest of the bullpen arms threw well including Blake Smith who picked up his 8th save of the year with a perfect 9th.

LoA – Off day

DSL – The Dominican Dodgers had another quiet game as they fell to the Rays 7 to 3.  The offense had just 2 hits in this contest, one of them being a RBI double by Johan MiesesSamuel Ortiz had the only other hit, a single, and he also drove in a run.  Starter Osiris Ramirez took the loss after allowing 2 homers and 6 runs over just 2.1 frames, although only 3 of the runs were earned.  Gregor Mora had the only notable performance out of the bullpen as he tossed two shutout innings and recorded 5 of his 6 outs via the K.

Coming up – It's the Isotopes turn to take the day off, so Wednesday's action will start at 8:15 in the morning (PST) with Raydel Sanchez and the Lookouts.  Brandon Martinez throws for the Loons later in the day while Chris Anderson and the Quakes will play in the nightcap.
