The ValleyCats put up 5 in the 3rd and 2 more in the 8th for good measure, while three pitchers combined on a shutout.

Hunter Martin allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 over 4 innings. Parker Mushinski was the first man out of the Tri-City bullpen and allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6 in 3 innings. Nathan Thompson completed the shutout by walking 1 and striking out 4 over the final 2 innings.

Luis Payano opened the scoring with an RBI double in the 3rd. Two batters later, Abraham Toro drove in 2 on a bloop single. Jake Adams followed by whacking a 2-run homer. In the 8th, Payano scored on a wild pitch and Mike Papierski capped off the evening with a sac fly. Payano finished 2-3 on the evening.

DSL Red Sox 9, DSL Astros Blue 5 in 11 innings

W- Luis Rivero (5-1)
L- Christopher Javier (2-1)

Blue home runs: Nerio Rodriguez (1, 2-run in 2nd)

The Blue team tied the game with 3 in the bottom of the 7th, but the Red Sox regained control with 4 in the top of the 11th.

Nerio Rodriguez hit his first career homer, a 2-run blast in the 2nd inning, to put the Blue team on the board. Nerio then scored the first run in the 7th on a wild pitch after walking to lead off the inning. Yeuris Ramirez scored on a Luis Coronel groundout, and Anthony Rodriguez scored on another wild pitch.

Jean Reyes and Manny Ramirez started off with 3 innings apiece. Reyes allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and struck out 2 while Ramirez allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Oscar Severino was next, and he allowed 2 hits while striking out 3 over 4 scoreless. Christopher Javier didn't allow a hit in the 11th, but the Red Sox still tagged him for 4 runs, 3 of which were earned. He issued a bases-loaded walk, hit another man with the bases loaded, balked in another run, and allowed a sac fly.

DSL Dodgers2 3, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- Nelfri Contreras (2-1)
L- Miguel Matos (0-2)
S- Elio Serrano (3)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team had more hits, but last I checked, hits do not determine the winner of a baseball game.

Deury Carrasco's RBI single in the 1st was Team Orange's only scoring play. Ramiro Rodriguez and Renaigel Martis both went 2-4.

Miguel Matos allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 2 innings. Ernesto Jaquez and Jose Alberto Rivera pitched 3 innings apiece; Jaquez was the first man out of the Orange team's bullpen and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Rivera allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 3.
