Triple-A: Salt Lake Bees

Starter Tyler DeLoach struck out eight last night, but ran into some trouble in the fifth when he gave up three runs on a walk and far too many two-out singles. After recording only an out in the sixth, Tyler was yanked in favor of Vinnie Pestano, who came in and struck out two to end the inning.

Jett Bandy (C) opened the scoring with his seventh long ball of the year, a line-drive solo shot to right-center field. Ryan Jackson (SS) hit an RBI double to score Gary Brown (CF) in the third, and Gary Brown returned the favor by hitting an RBI double to score Kaleb Cowart (3B) and tie the game in the fifth. Unfortunately, the Las Vegas 51s (NYM) broke the tie in the top of the tenth and that's how the night ended, with the visitors on top, 4-3.

Double-A: Arkansas Travelers

Starter Chris Ellis turned in a fair outing last night. He certainly wasn't as dominant as he was in his first two outings for the Travelers, but he kept them in the game by throwing five innings, giving up three earned runs on three hits and two walks, and striking out five Naturals. Relievers Austin Adams and Danny Reynolds each recorded a hold, and Greg Mahle notched his third save of the year.

Sherman Johnson (2B) had a nice night at the dish, going 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI. Drew Maggi (SS) did some serious damage with the stick, roping a double and picking up two RBI en route to a 3-for-5 night.

The Travelers are now 3-12 against the NW Arkansas Naturals (KC) on the year. A journey of a thousand steps begins with a win against one's rival. I think that's how it goes.

Rookie: Orem Owlz

Back and forth, back and forth. The Owlz put up quite a fight in an effort to win their fifth in a row, but they fell just short. Taylor Ward (C) broke out last night, going 2-for-3, with a double, a walk and a run scored. Good to see. He needed it. He also gunned a runner trying to steal third in the second inning. Kyle Survance, Jr. (CF) did some more damage, hitting a three-run double in the seventh. Then he stole third. Yup.

Joe Gatto was roughed up pretty good, only lasting three innings and giving up five earned runs. He struck out five, but the damage was done pretty early.
