3B Maddox 2-5, 2 RBI (11), K, SB, E (3) -- .261
2B Falu 2-4, BB, RBI (4), RS -- .294
RF Parraz 2-3, BB, 2 RS, SB (2) -- .170
1B Thorman 1-3, S, HR (4), RBI (11), K, RS, E (2) -- .244
LF Gordon 0-4, BB, 2 K -- .375, gonna cost someone ABs, I figured Parraz but he's hung tough lately
CF Lough 1-4, 2 K -- .263
DH Miller 0-3, BB, 3 K, RS -- .189

Hernandez 6 IP, 3 ER, 4 H, 3 BB, 4 K -- L, 2-2, 6.12 ERA, not awful, not great
V. Marte IP, 3 R (1 ER), 3 H, BB, E -- 4.72 ERA, also ungood
Herges IP, H, BB, K -- 4.50 ERA
Hayes IP, 4 UER, 4 H, K -- 6.00 ERA, Disco may have met his 1980s.

* A 4-run 9th helped the RedHawks put the game out of reach. Former Royal Esteban German turned a leadoff HBP in the 1st into OKC's 1st run of the game but Omaha took the lead in the 3rd on RBI singles by Irving Falu and Marc Maddox. Gaby Hernandez loaded the bases to start the 4th and 1B Scott Thorman made a run-scoring error as the Hawks scored 2 runs to regain the lead. Victor Marte came in for the 7th and gave up a leadoff double then made a run-scoring error. He later gave up a 2-out, 2-run double as the RedHawks moved ahead 6-2. Thorman hit a solo homer in the 8th for his 4th of the season to cut the lead to 3 but OKC broke it open off Disco Hayes in the 9th. A Marc Maddox error and the fact all 4 runs scored with 2 outs made all 4 runs unearned on 4 hits, including 3 XBH. Omaha was down 10-3 but did scratch out a couple runs in the 9th on a run-scoring wild pitch and Maddox RBI single. Starter Derek Holland got the win with 5 IP of 2 ER allowed for OKC. Three RedHawks had multiple hits and 4 had 2 RBI led by CF Brandon Boggs, who was 3-3 with 2 walks and 2 RBI (8). The O-Royals are 13-12. Luis Mendoza starts Wednesday for Omaha. I failed to note initially that 1B/DH Kila Ka'aihue is getting a shot at the majors as Rick Ankiel hit the DL. We'll see how much he plays.

AA - NWA: Naturals 7, Springfield 6 (11)

3B Moustakas 3-5, BB, 2B (9), HR (5), 3 RBI (16), K, RS -- .417, something is clicking

CF D. Robinson 2-5, BB, 2B (3), K, 3 RS, SB (19) -- .349

Crow 7 IP, 3 R (1 ER), 6 H, 2 BB, 3 K, E -- 3.44 ERA, 93 pitches
R. Hardy 3 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, BB, 4 K, HRA -- BS, 1, 2.38 ERA
Chavez 1/3 IP, K -- W, 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 game, 1 win for Nats

* The Cards scored 3 late runs to force extras but the Naturals emerged triumphant in 11. Manny Pina hit a 2-out RBI single in the 1st, altho Mike Moustakas got cut down at the plate to end the rally. Aaron Crow had a rocky 2nd but emerged with a tie game and 2 left in scoring position. Moustakas hammered a 2-run homer in the 3rd but the Cardinals got a run back in the 4th to cut it to 3-2. Moustakas stayed in the thick of the NWA production with an RBI double in the 5th but the Nats squandered a chance at a bigger rally. Crow gave up a 2-out RBI triple in the 7th but the Naturals got the run back on Clint Robinson's 3rd homer of the season - a solo shot. Rowdy Hardy took over in the 8th and gave up a 2-out, 2-run single to tie the game and blow Crow's win. A 2-out error helped NWA regain the lead in the bottom of the 8th but Hardy gave up a 2-out solo homer to C Steven Hill in the 9th to keep the Cards alive. Hardy got a double play to escape the 10th and newest Nat RP Chris Chavez got the last out in the 11th. The Nats loaded the bases in the 11th and Clint Robinson hit a walkoff single to end it. RP Thomas Eager took the loss for Springfield. Starter David Kopp allowed 4 ER over 6 IP. Four Cards had multiple hits led by a 4-5 night from SS Pete Kozma. Kozma also drove in 4 runs (17) and made his 11th error. The Nats are 16-8 and opening up a lead in the TL North. Mike Montgomery will hopefully get to make his official AA debut Wednesday after his 1st AA start was washed out like it didn't happen after 2 innings.

A-Adv. - Wilmington: Salem 7, Blue Rocks 4 (10)

3B Romak 2-4, 3B, RBI (14), K, RS, SB -- .234
C S. Perez 3-4, 2B (5), K, E -- .323

Bowden 2 1/3 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 4 K, WP -- 1.80 ERA
J. Thompson IP, 3 ER, 3 H, BB -- L, 0-3, 7.27 ERA

* A 3-run 1st went for naught as Salem came back to end it with a 3-run inning of its own. The Rocks jumped on Salem SP Alex Wilson as Eric Hosmer doubled in a run, Jamie Romak tripled in a run, and Anthony Seratelli singled in a run to make it 3-0. The Rocks left em loaded in the 2nd and Salem broke the horse collar with a solo homer in the 4th off Alex Caldera. Caldera gave up 2 more runs on 4 hits in the 5th to tie the game at 3. Hosmer hit an RBI groundout in the 5th to put the Rocks back up, but Sox 1B Anthony Rizzo clubbed his 2nd homer of the game (and 4th of the season) to tie it in the 6th. The game stayed tied into the 10th when James Thompson came in to pitch and the Sox rallied for 3 runs with 2 out and nobody on. The Rocks went down 1-2-3 in the 10th. RP Jeremy Kehrt pitched 4 scoreless innings for the win after Wilson allowed 4 ER over 5 IP. Five Sox had 2 hits led by Rizzo. Rizzo and SS Ryan Dent each drove in 2 runs. The Blue Rocks are 10-15. OF Jamar Walton was activated from the DL as IF Juan Rivera hit it with a hamstring injury. Righty Jairo Cuevas starts for the Rocks Wednesday.

Odenbach 2 IP, ER, 4 H, BB, 3 K -- L, 1-2, 4.30 ERA

* The Bees scratched out 2 late runs to force extras but succumbed in 13. John Lamb gave up a 2-out solo homer in the 2nd but that was the only tally he allowed. The Bees stranded 2 in the 2nd and Scott Kelley allowed another run in the 7th. Adam Frost led off the Bees 8th with a triple and scored on an Allen Caldwell sac fly to cut the lead in half. The Bees were down to their last out with Wil Myers at second in the 9th when Fernando Cruz hit a clutch game-tying double. Kane County stranded 2 off Dusty Odenbach in the 12th and the Bees put 2 on with 0 out but three straight struck out to squander the chance. Odenbach gave up the go-ahead run in the 13th and RP Max Peterson struck out the side in the Bees 13th. RP Connor Hoehn pitched 2 scoreless for the win. KC starter Robert Gilliam allowed only 1 ER over 8 IP. Four Cougars had multiple hits as 3 notched 3 hits. The Bees are 10-16.
