Minor League Player of the Day
Triple-A Albuquerque outfielder Mike Baxter was 1-for-3 with a walk, and his one hit on Thursday was a solo home run against Jarrett Grube in the ninth inning to tie the game with Salt Lake.
Triple-A Albuquerque: Baxter homered in the ninth inning to send the game into extra innings, then Carlos Triunfel, in his first game back with the Isotopes, delivered the walk-off fielder's choice to score Trayvon Robinson, who doubled, for a 4-3 win in 10 innings over the Salt Lake Bees (Angels).
Matt Magill started for Albuquerque and allowed two runs in 6⅔ innings, with three strikeouts. The Isotopes only had four hits in the game, one of which was the seventh home run of the season for Joc Pederson, his second long ball in as many days:
Double-A Chattanooga: Right-hander Tyson Brummett gave up two runs in 6⅔ innings and struck out seven, but suffered the loss as the offensively-challenged Lookouts lost 7-2 to the Tennessee Smokies (Cubs). Ozzie Martinez was 2-for-3 with a double and drove in one run. Scott Schebler drove in the other run for Chattanooga, and has reached base in 10 consecutive home games, hitting .353/.421/.794 during that span.

Advanced Class-A Rancho Cucamonga: Every starter for the Quakes reached base at least once, eight starters scored, and seven starters drove in at least one run in a 12-6 win over the Inland Empire 66ers (Angels). Chris Jacobs was 1-for-2 with a home run and two walks, James Baldwin was 1-for-5 with a home run. Brandon Dixon was 2-for-4 with a run scored but his seventh-inning walk was his first free pass of the season, snapping a string of 96 straight walk-less plate appearances to start the season.
