AAA: Omaha fell to 3-10 this year against Albuquerque as the Isotopes scored 3 in the 8th en route to a 6-2 win over the O-Royals Thursday in Omaha. Omaha's 2 runs in the 6th on a sac fly by C Paul Phillips and an RBI double by RF Aaron Guiel tied the game before Albuquerque put it away late.

High-A: High Desert came back from the all-star break and an early 3-run deficit Thursday against Lancaster to earn a 10-7 win. SP Dusty Hughes was touched up for 3 in the 1st by the JetHawks but the Mavs scored 2 in the 2nd on a 2-run homer by RF Alan Moye (his 9th). Lancaster added a run in the 2nd but the Mavs matched that in the 3rd with a run on an RBI triple by SS Angel Sanchez. High Desert took the lead with 2 in the 5th on an RBI double by LF Bernard Stephens and a sac fly by Sanchez but Lancaster scored 2 of its own in the 5th to retake a 6-5 lead. The Mavs grabbed the lead again with 2 in the 7th on a fielding error by Lancaster SS Stephen Drew off a ball hit by Moye. Lancaster tied the game at 7 in the bottom of the inning but High Desert scored 2 in the 8th on an RBI single by Sanchez and a throwing error by JetHawks P Billy Biggs. Moye tacked a run on in the 9th with a solo shot for his 10th of the season and second of the game. Hughes went 6 IP and allowed 6 R (5 ER) on 10 hits and a BB with 5 Ks to move his ERA to 5.92. RP Drew Endicott blew his 1st save but got the win to move to 2-3. He went 1 1/3 IP and allowed 1 ER on 4 hits and a BB to make his ERA 4.62.

High Desert is 4-3 and tied with Rancho Cucamonga atop the Cal League South. A 3-game home set with 3-4 Lake Elsinore begins tonight.

Low-A: Burlington also came back from an early deficit to score 3 in the final 3 innings for a 9-8 win in the series opener with Peoria. 2B Pete Maestrales got the scoring started in the 1st with an RBI single but Peoria scored 3 off the Bees' SP, Luis Cota, in the 1st to take the lead. Burlington tied it in the 3rd with 2 runs on a wild pitch and an RBI single by C Damaso Espino but the Chiefs added 2 in the bottom of the inning to recapture the lead. A run by the Bees on a solo homer by 1B Rusty Brown (his 8th) in the 4th and 2 in the 5th on an RBI single by Maestrales and sac fly by Espino gave Burlington a 6-5 lead. It was short-lived as Peoria scored 2 in the 5th to take a 7-6 lead. A Chiefs run in the 8th gave Peoria an 8-6 lead before Burlington came on in the 7th. The Bees scored that inning on an RBI single by Espino and tied the game in the 8th on an RBI single by SS Irving Falu. A solo shot by RF Brian McFall in the 9th (his 6th) was the difference as RP Chad Blackwell closed out the win with a 1-2-3 9th. Cota went 5 IP and allowed 7 R (5 ER) on 8 hits and 3 BB with 3 Ks to make his ERA 3.53. He's been doing poorly ever since getting rocked in the all-star game. RP Greg Atencio went 2 innings and gave up 1 ER on 1 hit and 2 BB with a K to make his ERA 4.15. RP Adam Rowe pitched 1/3 of an inning and allowed 1 hit with 1 K to drop his ERA to 5.30. Blackwell got the win to move to 7-1. He went 1 2/3 IP and K'd 2 to drop his ERA to 2.43. 3B Mario Lisson was 1-2 with 3 BB, a double and 3 RS along with his 19th steal as his BA rose to .238; Maestrales was 4-5 for his best game as a Bee with 2 RBI to improve to .306 and Espino was 2-4 with 3 RBI to improve to .244. Falu and Maestrales both stole their 9th base of the season.

Burlington is 3-5 and 4 games back of first. The Bees went and fixed what wasn't broken in making the official web site much like High Desert's. Hopefully they'll keep all the info coming that was on the old site. SP Kyle Crist (5-1, 4.62) goes for the Bees in tonight's game with Peoria.

Rookie: Ogden took a 10-0 lead into the bottom of the 6th before Idaho Falls made it interesting but the Chukars still lost, 10-8. The Chukars scored 6 in the 6th on an RBI ground out by DH Christopher McConnell, an RBI single by RF Felix Peguero and a 3-run double by SS Shawn Hayes on which Hayes also scored on a throwing error by the Ogden catcher. Idaho Falls got back in business in the 9th as PH Blake Adkison hit a 2-out RBI single and Peguero followed with an RBI single but 1B Jase Turner struck out to end the game. SP Brandon Brantley got the loss to drop to 0-1. He went 3 IP and allowed 4 R (2 ER) on 6 hits and a BB with a K to move his ERA to 2.70. RP Mitch Goins went 3 innings and allowed 6 ER on 8 hits with a K to move his ERA to 11.42. RP Eliszer Garcia also went 3 IP and gave up only 3 hits and a BB with 5 Ks to drop his ERA to 3.52. LF Ethien Santana was 3-4 with a BB, double and 2 RS to improve his BA to .417; Adkison was 1-1 with the RBI to improve to .312; Peguero was 3-5 with a double and 2 RBI to move to .303; and C Jeffery Howell was 0-4 to drop to .389.

Idaho Falls is 4-6 and 4 games back of Ogden. SP Rusty Begnaud (2-0, 3.86) takes the mound for Idaho Falls tonight against Ogden.

The ASL Royals turned on the offense in a 15-7 win over the Brewers Thursday. The Royals scored 4 in the 1st on an RBI single by SS Jeff Bianchi, an RBI ground out by DH Felix Peralta, an RBI double by 3B Pedro Lopez and an RBI single by LF Jose Duarte. The Royals added 2 in the 2nd on RBI singles by CF Joseph Dickerson and Peralta and 1 in the 3rd on a sac fly by Bianchi. Three more runs came in the 5th on RBI doubles by C Ross Boudreaux and 1B Willie Matos and another Bianchi sac fly. The Royals added 4 in the 6th on a solo homer by Peralta (his 2nd), an RBI single by Duarte, an RBI double by Boudreaux and an RBI single by Matos before tacking on the final run in the 8th on a solo homer by PH Jefferson Infante (his 1st). SP Paul Raglione went 3 IP and gave up 3 ER on 6 hits and a BB with 3 Ks to move his ERA to 6.75. RP Brent Fisher got the win to move to 1-1. He went 3 IP and allowed 3 ER on 7 hits with 5 Ks to move his ERA to 16.62. RP Matt Pena went 3 innings and allowed 1 UER on 2 hits and a BB with 2 Ks to keep his ERA at 0.00. Bianchi was 2-3 with a double, 3 RBI and 2 RS to move to .500 on the season; Dickerson was 2-5 with an RBI to move to .417; Peralta was 2-5 with a HR and 3 RBI to move to .419; Duarte was 3-5 with a double, 2 RBI and 2 RS to move to .333; Boudreaux was 2-3 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI and 3 RS to move to .444; Infante was 1-1 with the homer and RBI to move to .375; and Matos was 3-4 with a double and 2 RBI to move to .235.

The ASL Royals are 5-3 and 1 1/2 games back of the Padres. The Royals have won 4 straight (they took the previously unreported Rangers game by an 18-10 count) and had today off before playing the Giants Saturday, the A's Sunday and the Padres on the 4th.
