* The Naturals blew a 2-run lead late but Mario Lisson saved the day with a walkoff shot in the 9th. Will Smith allowed a run on 2 hits in the 1st but Lisson stepped up to single in a run in the 2nd to tie it. San Antonio moved back ahead in the 3rd but Jeff Bianchi led off the 4th with his 1st homer of the season to tie it at 2. The Nats had a runner thrown out at the plate later in the inning. Eduardo Paulino allowed a run in the 6th but Bianchi tripled and scored on an Anthony Seratelli RBI single to once again tie it. Derrick Robinson tripled in the go-ahead run in the 7th and scored on a Christian Colon sac fly to make it 5-3 Nats. Paulino gave up a run in the 8th before getting pulled for Eric Basurto, who stranded the bases loaded. Basurto allowed the tying run in the 9th on 3 hits but managed to keep the tie intact. Lisson made quick work of that, however, as he led off the NWA 9th with his 1st homer of the season to end it. Four Missions had multiple hits. The Naturals are 2-1.

* Leondy Perez carried a 3-hit shutout into the 7th but things fell apart late for him and the Cougars. Alex Llanos led off the game with a double for KC but they made nothing of it. Wisconsin got an early scoring chance in the 2nd but Brian Fletcher and SS Gerard Hall teamed up to throw a Rattler out at the plate to keep it 0-0. Two Cougars were caught stealing in the 3rd but Murray Watts singled in the first run of the game in the 6th to break the tie. With 2 on and 0 out in the Rattler 7th, Perez made a run-scoring throwing error on a bunt, then got 2 outs before an Angel Franco throwing error scored the go-ahead run for Wisconsin. Nick Wooley replaced Perez in the 8th and struggled as a run-scoring wild pitch and RBI single made it 4-1 Rattlers. Fletcher led off the 9th with a triple and scored on a 2-out Franco double that was followed by a Ryan Jenkins RBI single to cut the lead to 1. Fernando Cruz struck out to end the game, however. The Cougars are 1-2. Keaton Hayenga starts the series finale Sunday.
