Gonzalez Carries Suns-- Juan Gonzalez provided all the offense the Jacksonville Suns needed, smacking a solo homer (#5) in the eighth inning to break a 1-1 tie and drop Huntsville 2-1.

He also doubled and scored on Xavier Paul's sacrifice fly in the third for the first Suns as they ended Huntsville's 12-game winning streak. He had two of the three hits the Suns managed during the evening.

Greg Miller, a reliever most of the season, drew the start and allowed only four hits and a single run while striking out seven before leaving with two out in the fourth. It may be the Dodgers are thinking about putting him back in the starting mode the rest of the season.

Alvis Ojeda (4-5) gave up three hits and struck out three in 4.1 scoreless innings to pick up the win. Mark Alexander worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his third save.

Right-hander James McDonald (2-0, 0.82) is scheduled to oppose Stars left-hander Derek Miller (1-0, 4.00) tonight in the second game of the five-game series. ?

Inland Empire-- Open date.

Loons Lose in 10-- Great Lakes and Beloit traded five run innings and it took a balk in the 10th inning to break the deadlock and give the give the Snappers a 7-6 win.

BEloit lead off the 10th with a single off of Thomas Melgarejo, and he was bunted to second. An intentional walk set up a possible double play and and Miguel Sanfler was called in from the bullpen.

Sanfler was immediately charged with a balk, and a long fly ball drove in the winning run with Melgarejo (4-6) getting tagged with with the loss.

The Loons scored five times to take a 5-1 lead in the fifth inning. Shortstop Francisco Lizarraga banged his his fourth homer of the year and designated hitter Juan Apodaca added a two-run single.

Seven consecutive hits off starter Steven Johnson and Melgarejo gave the Snappers their own five-run inning and a 6-5 lead. Outfielder Matt Berezay drove in the game-tying run with an eighth-inning triple, his third hit of the game, scoring Francisco Lizarraga, who reached on an error.

The Loons drop to 43-56 overall and 9-20 in the second half and tonight will send Clayton Kershaw (7-4) against Cole Devries (7-3) for Beloit.

Billings Crushed-- Billings put an emphatic end to Ogden's mild two-game win streak by administering an 11-3 thumping Monday.

Blake Brannon (0-1), signed as a free agemt earlier this season, made his first start for the Raptors but was banged around for four runs in four innings, then Kalen Gearhart was assaulted for five and Tim Gray gave up two more before the Mustangs were done.

The Raptors managed only six hits with Elian Herrera, Jovany Rosario and pinchhitter Jeremy Brown driving in their runs. Herrera's double was the only extra-base blow.

The loss left Ogden with a 14-19 record.--Bill Shelley..

Gulf Coast Dodgers-- A night game was scheduled against the Cardinals but, as is almost always the case, it rained, forcing a postponement. --Bill Shelley..

DR Dodgers Lose to Yanks-- The Dominican Dodgers continue to have their troubles lately, the latest when the Yankees rallied for four runs in the seventh inning to win 5-3. The loss left the Dodgers (25-18) in a virtual tie with the Royals and Red Sox, four games behind the Giants.

Starter Daniel Tamares held the Yanks to two hits and one run in three innings, then Endy Marte didn't allow a hit in the two he worked. However, the Yanks picked up a run in the sixth and three more in the seventh off Jhan Carlos Lopez.

The Dodgers managed only five singles with Jose Arias credited with the lone RBI. One run scored on an error while the other came in the ninth while Rafael Ynoa was grounding into a double play. --Bill Shelley..
