El Paso Sand Walkers 3 vs Charleston Apologists 4 - El Paso had this game in hand until the closer melted in the 9th. Though I question Q.Diaz ground ball single to RCF in the 9th, but that is the breaks of the game.
Kansas City Cattle Herders 2 vs Toledo Mud Hens 6 - Ruben James pitched 6 shutout innings and Samuel Scarsone added the offensive fire power.
Tacoma TIE Fighters 1 vs Oakland Surenos 8 - Kyle Bradshaw goes 5 innings for the tandem win as Ramon Kim and Chris Fontenot go yard.

New York Moguls 7 vs Syracuse Orange Crush 1 - Jacque Butler picks up the win throwing a lot of pitches in his 6 innings of work. Long balls by Matthew Ryan and Felix Chang led the offense. However the highlight of the game came from Syracuse as Rico Nunez hit an inside-the-park HR and has been running on JB-ESPN all afternoon.
Washington D.C. Revenge 1 vs Cleveland Katanas 2 - Norm Barkley looked nervous early giving up 2 runs a lead that DC could not overcome as Vic Benitez (winner) and pen kept DC at bay.

Little Rock Pebbles 4 vs Charlotte Gooners 5 - Herm Carasone picks up the win in relief as Willie Magadan second solo HR in the 8th breaks a tied game. Bruce Post also hit a 3 run blast for Charlotte.
