Pawtucket Red Sox 2, Durham Bulls 1
Box | Recap

Ray Sadler had two hits for Durham. John Jaso and Ray Olmedo had the only other hits... The Bulls had 1st and 3rd in the 9th with 1 out but couldn't score...

Birmingham Barons 6, Montgomery Biscuits 1
Box | Recap
Notes: The Biscuits fell to 26-31... Brandon Mann allowed 5 runs in 3 innings, a hole the Biscuits weren't able to climb out of... Neal Frontz threw three scoreless innings, and Ryan Reid allowed the 6th run in his second relief inning... Desmond Jennings was 0-3 with a walk... Montgomery had only three hits...

Charlotte Stone Crabs 10, Daytona Cubs 2

Bowling Green Hot Rods 10, Asheville Tourists 2
Box | Recap
Notes: Bowling Green improved to 27-28... Matt Moore threw a dominant 7 innings, no-hitting Asheville and striking out 12 and walking only 2. Neil Schenk allowed the first hit with 2 outs in the 8th inning... Mike McCormick and Isiais Velasquez homered; Velasquez's was a grand slam... Tim Beckham was 0-4 with a walk...

Durham Bulls - LHP Jason Cromer: He's not a prospect and his numbers weren't that great(he walked four), but he has a 1.15 ERA in three AAA starts. Not a bad organizational arm.

Montgomery Biscuits - 1B Rhyne Hughes: Collected 2 of the Biscuits' 3 hits, both singles.

Charlotte Stone Crabs - RHP Alex Cobb: The offense was great, but Cobb may not have a weakness on the mound. He doesn't do any one thing great, but here are some stats on the season: 1.76 BB/9, 4.36 K/BB, and 1.51 GO/AO. He strikes out enough guys, limits the walks, and gets a decent amount of groundballs.

Bowling Green Hot Rods - LHP Matt Moore: As if there was any doubt. Unlike Cobb, it's pretty easy to see Moore's strengths and weaknesses. He's striking out 13.5 guys per 9 innings, but this start just brought his BB/9 under 7.

Durham Bulls - First four hitters went a combined 0-12, though each drew a walk.

Montgomery Biscuits - 4-9 in the order: 0 for 18.

Charlotte Stone Crabs - OF John Matulia: Didn't get in on the fun, taking a tough 0-5 night.

Bowling Green Hot Rods - LHP Neil Schenk: Blew the no-hitter. Come on!
