The Express had a good start from Josh Banks, and a monster day by Brian Bogusevic for a 6-3 win over Memphis. Banks threw 6.2IP, 7H/3R (1ER), 4K:1BB to improve to 3-3 with a 2.93 ERA. Yorman Bazardo and Casey Daigle shut it down to preserve the win. Bogusevic was 4x4 with a 2-run homer, Oswaldo Navarro was 2x4, and Jason Castro was 1x4 with an RBI double.
Man of the Match: Brian Bogusevic
A wild one in Corpus saw four runs scored in the 9th inning, but it was the Hooks who got the last two for a 5-4 win. Marcos Cabral and David Cook scored on a throwing error to win the game - brutal to win on a walkoff throwing error - but we'll take it. Sergio Perez threw 5IP, 4H/1ER, 2K:3BB, while Nelson Payano threw 2IP, allowing five baserunners (3H/2BB), but no runs. Edwin Walker threw 1s: 1IP, 1H/1ER, 1K:1BB, but Danny Meszaros gets his third blown save and his second win, allowing three hits and a walk (2ER) in 1IP. Jack Shuck and Koby Clemens both had two hits, and Clemens also stole two bases and drew a walk. J.R. Towles was 0x4 with 3Ks, and an RBI. Also impressive were the two outfield assists, nailing Missions at home - one by Gaston and one by T.J. Steele.
Man of the Match: Koby Clemens
The JetHawks took a 4-0 lead after the first inning, gave up five runs, and then pulled away for a 14-8 win over Inland Empire.

Ashton Mowdy gave up three earned - two on a homer - in one IP, and Brian Wabick closed it out with 2IP, 2H/0ER. Jay Austin was 4x4 with a walk, four runs scored, and an RBI. David Flores and Brandon Wikoff both had three hits, while Mark Ori was 2x5 (4RBI) and Ebert Rosario was 2x5. The 4-5-6 of Flores, Ori, and Federico Hernandez went 6x14 with 8RBI.

Rough day all around for the Legends as they fall 9-2 to Greensboro. Brandt Walker threw 4IP, 8H/8ER, 2K:3BB while Colton Pitkin held Greensboro to 4H/1ER, 2K:1BB in 5IP of relief. The Legends were 0x11 w/RISP. Brian Kemp had the only extra-base hit, while Kody Hinze and Rene Garcia had the lone RBIs.
