Round Rock rallied for three runs in the bottom of the 7th to tie Oklahoma City at 4-4, but Alex Cora (who is hilariously still wearing a Mets hat in his MiLB profile) hit a homer in the 9th inning off Gary Majewski for the 5-4 win over Round Rock. Yorman Bazardo allowed 6H/4ER, 5K:3BB in 6.1IP, and Majewski gave up 2H/1ER, 1K:0BB in 2.2IP of relief. Oklahoma City's Derek Holland threw 6IP, 3H/1ER, 5K:3BB. However, Oswaldo Navarro was 4x5 with a double, homer, and 2RBI. Edwin Maysonet (2x3, BB) and Collin DeLome (1x5, RBI) had your other hits. Brian Bogusevic was 0x3, and is hitting .179/.304/.282 over his last ten games.
Man of the Match: Oswaldo Navarro

High Desert worked over Lancaster for a 10-3 win. Leandro Cespedes allowed 5H/6R (4ER), 2K:4BB, and a balk in 1.2IP; Ashton Mowdy walked two in 3.1IP - getting out of an inherited bases loaded jam without allowing a run; Mike Modica gave up 5H/3ER, 0K:1BB in 1IP; Jose Trinidad gave up 2H/1ER in 1IP; and Edwin Walker allowed 2H/0ER in 1IP.

Lexington was down 6-2 heading into the 7th, and scored six runs over the next three innings for an 8-6 win over Augusta. Juan Minaya threw 5IP, 6H/5R (4ER), 5K:2BB, 3WP; Brenden Stines allowed 2H/1ER, 3BB in 2IP, and Colton Pitkin provided the 8th inning bridge to Kirk Clark, who recorded his 28th save of the season. It was the top of the order doing the damage, as Jimmy Paredes, Jiovanni Mier, and Jake Goebbert each had two hits. Ben Heath was 2x4 with a double and a walk. Our Boy Aaron Bray went 0x4, but had 2RBI to reach 40RBI on the season. Renzo Tello hit a three-run double in the 9th for the go-ahead RBIs. The bases were loaded up for Tello on Ben Heath's single, and Jonathan Meyer and Miguel Arrendell's two-out walks.
Man of the Match: Renzo Tello

Adam Champion, Jason Chowning, and Joan Belliard combined for 3H/0ER in relief. Marcus Nidiffer (SB) - who probably ought to go to Lancaster in 2011 - and Austin Wates (double, RBI) had three hits each. Adam Bailey was 2x5 with a double, homer, and 4RBI. Chris Wallace hit his first homer for the ValleyCats, and Orloff (SB), Adamson, and Kvasnicka provided your other RBIs.
