Minor League Player of the DayRalston Cash (AA) - 2 IP, six batters faced, six strikeouts. The Dodgers 2010 second round pick had not advanced beyond A-Ball in his five years of professional until he was promoted from Great Lakes to Chattanooga this past August.  In 2014, Cash pitched exclusively out of the bullpen and that may be his path to the majors, Cash's final 2014 stat line (combining Great Lakes and Chattanooga) was 59 IP, 72 strikeouts and one home run allowed.

AA – The Lookouts saw the Stars score first but then the Lookouts tied the game and then pushed across one more to win 2-1 and take a two games to one lead in their best-of-five series.  Jeremy Khert started for the Lookouts and did well, pitching 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, one run, two walks and striking out six.  Player of the Day, Ralston Cash, struck each of the six batters he faced.

Daniel Coulombe was credited with the save.

Corey Seager led off the bottom of seventh with a single.  With runners on first and second and one out, Angel Sanchez's pinch hit single drove in Seager with the ultimate winning run.

Rookie OgdenOgden lost 7-4 to Orem (Angels) and were swept in their best-of-three series.  Grant Holmes took a 2-0 lead to the bottom of the second inning but then Holmes gave up six runs.  Holmes only pitched one inning plus where he gave up six runs, four hits, one walk and Holmes struck out three.

Cody Bellinger and Jacob Scavuzzo each had two hits in the loss.

Coming up – Lookouts send Matt Shelton out on the mound in Game 4 of their best-of-five series.
