Player of the day

Chris O`Brien, catcher for the Lookouts, delivered a two-run double in the ninth inning to turn a 4-3 deficit into a 5-4 walk-off with for Double-A Chattanooga, breaking a 3-for-26 slump for O'Brien.

Triple-A Albuquerque

Eighth-inning home runs by Jamie Romak and Brian Cavazos-Galvez lifted the Isotopes to a 6-5 road win over the Las Vegas 51s (Mets) in their last game before the Triple-A All-Star break. Cavazos-Galvez's shot was the first pinch-hit home run by Albuquerque on the season and was the go-ahead blow. Joc Pederson was 2-for-4 with a double and a walk, and is 7-for-17 (.412) with two doubles, a triple and six walks in five games since his return from the disabled list.

Double-A Chattanooga

O'Brien's walk-off double gave the Lookouts a 5-4 win over the Huntsville Stars (Brewers). Chattanooga trailed 4-2 entering the ninth inning, but singles by Bobby Coyle, O`Koyea Dickson and pinch hitter Daniel Mayora cut the deficit to 4-3, setting up O'Brien's heroics. Andres Santiago allowed one unearned run in six innings with four strikeouts in a no-decision.

Advanced Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

Chris Anderson struck out six in four innings, but he also allowed five runs in the Quakes' 6-2 loss to the Lancaster JetHawks (Astros). Anderson allowed a three-run home run in the first inning and a two-run shot in the fourth. The Quakes managed just five hits, all singles, one of which was by Turner, who also walked twice.

Class-A Great Lakes

The Loons fell 9-7 to the Lake County Captains (Indians). Spencer Navin reached base four times and scored three runs, and Alex Santana was 2-for-4 with a double and drove in three runs in the loss.

Rookie-level AZL Dodgers
