Last night on the farm, some teams provided offensive fireworks, some teams didn’t, and others made fans wait a lot longer to get to them.
Albuquerque 7, Las Vegas 6 (10 innings)
Darin Gorski had another nice outing, allowing 2 runs on 6 hits over 6 innings, striking out 7 and walking 1. Zack Thornton allowed 3 unearned runs and Chase Bradford allowed 2 unearned runs that Buddy Carlyle inherited, and that was the game. Wilmer Flores was 2 for 5 with 2 homers. Danny Muno hit a pinch-hit homer to tie the game in the 9th. Matt Reynolds and Allan Dykstra had 2 hits each.
