Minor League Player of the Day – James Baldwin - 3 for 4, 1 HR, 2 RBI's, 2 Runs. Baldwin has really struggled in the 2nd half of Ogden's season in terms of his average, hitting just .204 over the past 28 games, but he has done a decent job of keeping up his power numbers up as 6 of his 10 homers have come during that same time period. Hopefully he hits another hot streak as the Raptors head into the Pioneer League playoffs.

Rookie Ogden – Raydel Sanchez had a solid start on Tuesday, but his bullpen blew the lead and the game as Ogden lost 5 - 4 in their series finale to the Chukars (Royals). Sanchez allowed just 1 unearned run over 5 frames and did not walk a batter in his final tuneup before the playoffs. Yimy Rodriguez gave a run in 2 innings of relief, but then the wheels really fell off when Carlos De Aza entered the game and promptly allowed 5 hits, including 2 homers. At the plate, the offense was paced by James Baldwin who went 3 for 4 with a homer and 2 RBI's. Kevin Thompson's double was Ogden's only other extra base hit, and Joc Pederson had his hitting streak snapped with an 0 for 3 night.
