AAA – A very short game was suspended as Albuquerque and the Cubs stopped play in the bottom of the 2nd with the Cubs leading 1 to 0. Jonathan Sanchez made his third start for the Isotopes and his effectiveness is still a question mark. This time he pitched 2 innings, 1 hit, 2 walks and had 1 strikeout. The game will be continued today and will be recapped tomorrow.
AA – The upside of the Lookouts and Suns (Marlins) games being suspended after Chris Reed completed the top of the 4th, is that Chris Reed's nice game of 4 scoreless innings, 4 hits and 9 strikeouts will count in the record books. The Lookouts scored the only run of the game thus far. The game will be made up today and a full recap will appear in tomorrow's report.
HiA – The Quakes lost again to the Mavericks (Mariners) on Friday, this time by a 6 to 3 score. Lindsey Caughel had a tough go of it, 5 IP, 5 hits, 4 runs, 4 walks while striking out 6.

LoA – 10 hits and 7 walks equaled only 2 runs that didn't prove to be enough in Great Lakes losing effort against West Michigan (Tigers) 7 to 2.

Rookie Ogden – Two times two times two did not work out for the Raptors as they lost to the Owlz (Angels) 8 to 4. RHP Scott Barlow had too many crooked numbers in his box score, 5.2 innings pitched, 6 hits, 6 earned runs, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 2 home runs allowed.

Adam Law and Cody Bellinger had 2 hits each, Bellinger had a triple and 3 RBI.
DSL – There was no box score nor report about the scheduled game between the Dominican Dodgers and the Royals, since several games were postponed in the last week, the presumption is that this one was also postponed.
