LAS VEGAS, Nevada--With Dodger pitchers being placed on the disabled list in droves, Edwin Jackson (3-6) seemingly missed his chance again. Monday night with the wind blowing out, he was pounded for eight runs in 5.2 innings as the 51s were smashed 18-7. The game was tied at 6-6 before Fresno scored two runs in the sixth inning, three runs in the eighth and seven in the ninth. "He's a fly-ball pitcher and a high-strike pitcher. I just want to see him make an adjustment to that," 51s manager Jerry Royster said of Jackson. "It's not all right for him to pitch like that, no matter what the wind is doing." Tom Farmer faced six batters in the ninth inning, and all six scored. The 51s recorded 16 hits and were led by shortstop Joe Flores with a 4-for-5, double, two RBI performance. Catcher Dioner Navarro was 3-for-5, two doubles, two RBI and is batting .667 (8-for-12) in the series. First baseman Brian Myrow reached base safely all five times (2-for-2, 2 walks, HBP). Center fielder Henri Stanley was 2-for-5 with two triples and left fielder Jason Grabowski, who went 2-for-4 and is hitting .474, wrapped up his rehabilitation assignment and is returning back to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee-– Todd Donovan tied a career-high with four hits and hit a two-run home run, sparking a five-run seventh inning in the Suns' 10-0 victory Chattanooga. Donovan also stole two bases, increasing his league-leading total to 30. He swiped second on a pitch-out in the fifth when no one covered the base. Donovan advanced to third as the ball dribbled into center and came around to score when the center fielder bobbled the ball. It was all the cushion Suns starter Jonathan Broxton needed. Broxton (3-2) scattered four singles and walked none while striking out nine en route to the victory. He has not allowed a run in 12 innings vs. the Lookouts this season. Six consecutive Suns reached base in the seventh and the Suns sent 10 batters to the plate, padding the lead to 7-0. The Lookouts did not get a runner to first base until the ninth.

VERO BEACH, Florida--After four days off because of rainouts, the Dodgers split a double header with Daytona, taking the first game 12-5 and losing the second 6-2. The first game was a completion of Sunday's, which was postponed after the third inning by rain. The Dodgers came from behind, thanks to solid pitching out of the bullpen and some timely hits. Danny Muegge earned the win with the first three relief innings. He allowed just one run. Hong-Chih Kuo and Orlando Rodriguez combined to shut out the Cubs over the final three frames. Edwin Bellorin led off the fourth with a double and came home on a single by Chin-lung Hu. The Dodgers took the lead in the fifth. Xavier Paul walked with the bases loaded to force across one run and Tony Abreu singled in two more to put the Dodgers on top 6-5. Vero put the game away in the 8th. Hu bunted for a hit, then Andy LaRoche and Kemp lined back-to-back singles to load the bases. Ruggiano walked to make it 7-5 and Anthony Raglani boomed a grand slam. Bellorin followed with a solo blast to center, completing the 12-5 victory.
In Game Two, the offense was swallowed up by four double plays in only seven innings. The only two runs came in the bottom of the seventh when Raglani pushed a home run down the right field line to knock in Kemp, who had tripled to start the inning. Daytona used a 3-run second inning of Justin Orenduff to cruise to victory. Orenduff (4-3) surrendered four runs in five innings after allowing only a total of four runs in his previous 28 innings pitched. He fell to 4-3.
