Arkansas - Off
Inland Empire - The 66ers won 7-3, back to back W's for the team. Pitcher John Hellweg finally seems to be putting his talent together in High-A ball. Tonight he went 6 innings, giving up just 2 earned runs, striking out 8 and walking none. The 6'9" pitcher is 22 years of age and has a 1.28 ERA in his last 4 starts with 29 strike outs and only 8 walks. Kole Calhoun was 2-4 with a double and his 18th home run. David Harris was 3-4 with a triple, and Jose Jimenez went 2-3 with a double.

Chris Giovinazzo and Ryan Jones chipped in the only home runs of the game. For Giovinazzo that is his 1st and for Jones, his 8th.
AZL Angels - Pretty boring game for the AZL Angels as they lost 4-2. Jackson Whitley was 1-3 with a double, as he continues to rip the cover off of the ball lately. Robert Fish, rehabbing a hamsting issue, tossed 2 great innings striking out 3 and walking none. You should see him back in Arkansas real soon.
