Casey Coleman lost for the first time in almost a month at Iowa and failed to do something for the first time in his career. Hung-Wen Chen turned in his fourth straight quality start for Tennessee. Chris Rusin turned in his third scoreless outing in his last five starts for Daytona. Matt Cerda's hot hitting wasn't enough to get Peoria into the win column.
