El Paso rallies to win in the ninth and the Missions can't take advantage of Joe Ross' strong start in San Antonio. Both Lake Elsinore and Fort Wayne win. Michael Kelly has a good start in Eugene and the AZL Padres put up some run.
Both Jason Lane and Josh Geer pitched as well as they have all season but couldn't get the win. The Storm and TinCaps put up some offense. The defense on the Emeralds falls apart and the AZL Padres have some visitors.
El Paso has some serious speed in their lineup while Josh Geer and the Missions endure a pounding. Coby Cowgill and the Storm win while pitching lets down Fort Wayne and Eugene.
