On Friday night the system went an even 3-3 W-L overall excluding the two lower Rookie Ball squads. Zach Petrick struggled with control for the second straight start that affected his efficiency from going deep into the outing. State College secured a walk-off win in the ninth inning against Jamestown.

Memphis 2, Omaha 5

  • Mike O'Neill continuing to do what he does best being a pest to opposing pitchers by singling up the middle twice and earning a base on balls once. O'Neill now has a .379 batting average in his first 58 at bats at Triple-A.
  • Brock Peterson hit a sac fly his 73rd on the season.
  • Boone Whiting in six innings gave up four runs (two earned) on four hits, walked two and struck out four.

Springfield 2, Midland 7

  • James Ramsey was given fits by the Midland staff with three punch outs on the night. Ramsey has now struck out 107 times on the season those totals won't get better as he advances unless he improves his contact skills which would have to be hard to improve on.
  • Colin Walsh hit an RBI groundout and Adam Melker hit an RBI single.
  • Zach Petrick gave up three earned on four hits, walked four and struck out two in five innings of work.

Palm Beach 3, Charlotte 2

  • David Popkins was 3-4 with two RBI's.
  • Ronny Gil hit an RBI single.
  • Ryan Sherriff allowed two earned on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.
  • Robert Stock the converted catcher retired four batters with two strikeouts.
  • Ronnie Shaban continues to sway over FSL competition with a strikeout in a scoreless ninth to convert his 16th save of the season. Will be interesting to see how he fares against higher level hitting.

Peoria 7, Wisconsin 2

State College 2, Jamestown 0

  • Brett Wiley singled and hit a sac fly.
  • Willy Paulino pitched five scoreless innings gave up two hits and walked three and struck out five.
  • Mitch Harris retired four batters lowering his ERA down to 0.35.
  • Jacob Booden fanned five in the final 2 2/3 innings.

Johnson City 2, Elizabethan 3

  • Richy Pedroza was the Johnson City's only source of offense with a 2-run RBI double produced.
  • Michael Holback was dominate despite credited with a no-decision he struck out nine on one-run ball in six innings.
  • Fernando Baez sat down all three in order in a clean frame.
