Chris Withrow, Bryant Hernandez Spark Wins

Round Rock to dump Albuquerque 12-6. Chris Withrow held Jacksonville to a pair of hits over five innings, giving the Lookouts a 2-0 victory. San Jose used a pair of home runs to stop Inland Empire 7-1. Bryant Hernandez lined a two-out line drive into right-field line in the last of the 12th inning, scoring two runs and lifting the Raptors to a wild 6-5 victory. Great Lakes was not scheduled.

Six-Run Eighth Sinks Isotopes
Round Rock scored six times in the eighth inning to rally from a one-run deficit and dump Albuquerque 12-6.

The two clubs roared to a 6-6 tie after two innings, then settled in until the seventh when Mitch Jones singled, moved around to third on an error and a ground ball, then scored on Luis Maza's sac fly to give Albuquerque a slim, 7-6 lead.

Round Rock didn't allow much time for celebrating, battering Cody Wade (1-1) for six runs in the eighth to put the game away.

Right-hander J.D. Durbin drew the start hoping to break a five-game losing but it wasn't to be in this game. He allowed a first inning home run, then gave up five in the second, although four of the runs were unearned.

The Isotopes retaliated with six runs of their own in the bottom of the second to tie the game. J.D. Closser walked to get things underway and Maza singled. Sergio Garcia reached base in catchers interference.

Durban took out his frustration with a long triple to drive in three runs. Blake DeWitt knocked him in with a single, Hector Luna added another one-base hit and Jones' two-run double tied the scored. However he was thrown out attempting to stretch the hit into a triple and Dee Brown's double that followed was wasted.

From that point on, Albuquerque could manage only three hits.

Wade worked a scoreless seventh before the six-run explosion that sewed up the win for Round Rock.

Jones finished with a pair of doubles and a single, knocking in two. DeWitt and Luna had two hits each and Durbin, who got neither a win nor a loss, got some revenge with his three-run triple.

Xavier Paul saw his first action since his injury as a pinch-hitter.

The 13-game homestand will continue with two more games against Round Rock. Albuquerque needs a single win to set a new record for home victories. They collected 41 wins in both 2005 and 2007 to set the mark. Two more wins over the rest of the season will set a new club record, topping the 76 in 2005.

Hector Luna has quietly racked up a hit in 13 of his last 14 home games, a span in which he's batted .364 (18x50). On the current homestand, Luna is batting an even .400 with seven runs, two doubles, three homers, and 10 RBI in nine games.

Withrow Sets Suns 2-0
Chris Withrow held Jacksonville to a pair of hits over five innings and after Zach Schreiber worked a scoreless sixth, the rain washed out the rest of the game, giving the Lookouts a 2-0 victory.

The win kept Chattanooga snugly in the race for the second half title in the North Division of the Southern League, one game behind Tennessee and tied for second place with West Tenn.

With row gave up a leadoff single in the first and a two-out double in the second before working three hitless innings. He struck out eight and walked three.

Andrew Lambo lined a two-out single in the first and stole second. Gabby Martinez grounded a hit into right field and Chattanooga had a quick, 1-0 lead. They added another two-out run in the second when Juan Gonzalez and Withrow banged back-to-back singles and Trayvon Robinson's hit made it 2-0.

Lambo and Martinez finished the abbreviated game with a pair of hits each.

Homers in Ninth Stun 66ers
San Jose used a pair of inside-the-park home runs to gain a 7-1 lead over Inland Empire and the following four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth by Inland Empire did nothing except change the final score.

Inland Empire's playoff hopes have nearly winked out. With only six games left on the schedule, they trail Rancho Cucamonga by five games for the last playoff spot after the Quakes lost to Visalia, 11-2.

Rehabbing Hiroki Kuroda got the 66ers off on solid footing, allowing only an unearned run over his five innings but San Jose held a 1-0 lead when he left the game. Inland Empire scored in the sixth to tie things up as Andres Perez singled and moved up on a wild pitch. Garrett Green's two-out RBI single drove in the run.

Tim Sexton followed Kuroda on the mound and allowed two runs in the seventh to break the tie when a looping single eluded a sliding Jovanny Rosario and rolled by him for a triple. The Giants first inside the park homer of the night to left-center field made it a 3-1 Giants lead.

A three-run inside-the-park homer did most of the damage in the ninth and allowed the Giants a 7-1 margin.

Inland Empire had one more rally in them in the bottom of the ninth. After two walks, Elian Herrera was hit by a pitch to load the bases with none out. Scott Van Slyke singled in two, Perez walked to re-load the bases and Preston Mattingly followed with a run-scoring sac fly to right to cut the lead to 7-5. Green drove in another run with a fielders choice.

With the tying run at the plate, Green was picked of at first by the catcher to end the ballgame.

Sexton (8-14, 3.76) allowed six runs on seven hits with two walks and five strikeouts over the final four innings.

The 66ers meet San Jose Giants again tonight with RHP Justin Miller (0-5, 7.20) opposing LHP Paul Oseguera (5-7, 4.11).

Hernandez Walkoff Give Raptors 12-Inning Win
Bryant Hernandez lined a two-out shot down the right-field line in the last of the 12th inning, scoring pinch-runner David Iden and Nick Akins and lifting the Raptors to a wild 6-5 victory.

Ogden blew a another save opportunity in the ninth to send the game to extra innings, and even after Idaho Falls scored a run in the top of the 12th, they fought back to win.

Brett Wallach started and allowed a run in his three innings. Ogden scored twice in the second to take the lead. Andy Suiter allowed two in the fifth but again the Raptors retaliated with a pair of runs to take a 4-3 lead into the ninth.

Clay Calfee's second home run with Angelo Songco on base with a single accounted for the second inning runs and in the sixth, J.T. Wise singled and Nick Akins whacked his third Ogden home run to put the Raptors in front.

Now leading 4-3, right-hander Javier Solano took over from Fredy Quintero to close things out in the ninth. Solano hit the first man he faced, and after a sacrifice bunt, a center to drive home the tying run.

Each team had chances in extra innings, as both clubs stranded multiple runners in the eleventh. Solano, after the disappointing ninth, worked two scoreless innings before giving he ball to Greg Wilborn who served up a home run in the 12th to give the Chukars a 5-4 lead.

In the bottom of the inning, Calfee singled with one out and was replaced by Iden. With two away, Akins lined a shot past third base into the corner, putting men at second and third.

That set up Hernandez, who had been hitless in three at-bats. The Oklahoma infielder then delivering his first walk-off hit as a professional and end the four-hour battle.

Ogden now begins eight straight games with Orem, four on the road and four at home. Tonight Allen Webster is scheduled to face lefty Tyler Kehrer.
