Neither team got a runner past second from then until the 10th. Memphis got a runner to third in the 14th but neither team could rally until the 18th, when Memphis used 4 hits, 2 walks and a Betemit error to score 3 runs off Matt Herges.

* The Rocks recovered from a dismal first appearance by Tim Melville but it was all for naught as Barry Bowden blew it in the 9th. The Rocks rallied for 3 runs with 2 out and none on in the 1st as Jamie Romak hit an RBI single and 2 runs scored on a Jason Taylor single aided by a MB error. Melville took the 3-run cushion and lost it quickly as his outing went triple, RBI single, walk, walk, grand slam, pop out, single, walk, wild pitch, single, showers. Patrick Keating got out of the jam but then gave up a solo homer in the 2nd to make it 6-3 Pelicans. Eric Hosmer hit an RBI single in the 3rd and the Rocks put together a 4-run rally in the 4th. Adrian Ortiz hit a 2-out RBI single, Hosmer ripped a 2-run triple, and Romak singled home another run to make it 8-6 Rocks. The lead didn't last as Keating allowed another solo homer and then a run on 2 XBH to tie the game at 8 in the 4th. Salvador Perez gave the Rocks back the lead with an RBI single in the 5th but the Rocks would leave the bases full. Hosmer lined out with the bases loaded to end the Wilmington 7th but the 9-8 lead held into the bottom of the 9th. With 1 out and a runner at second, Bowden gave up a walkoff 2-run shot to 3B Shayne Moody to end it. RP Yeliar Castro pitched a scoreless 9th for the win for MB. Six Pelicans had multiple hits led by 3-hit nights from 2B Yoel Campusano and Moody. Both also had 2 RBI. 1B Gerardo Avila had the grand slam off Melville. Chris Dwyer makes his Wilmington debut tonight.

* The Bees got a nice night from the pitching staff and generated ample offense for the win. Kelvin Herrera allowed an RBI double in the 1st but that was all Quad Cities would get in terms of runs. Wil Myers tied the game with an RBI single in the 1st but the Bees left 2 in scoring position. With 2 out and the bases full in the Bees 4th, Ryan Stovall cleared them with a triple and Burlington had a 4-0 lead.
