Mahoning Valley 6, Williamsport 2
Tyler Naquin had his best game as a pro, going 3-for-4 with a double and a walk. Juan Romero hit his fourth home run in 7 games with the Scrappers; the 19-year-old showed good power numbers in two seasons in the AZL, and that's carried over to the NYPL.

AZL Athletics 7, AZL Indians 3
Juan Herrera went 3-for-4, and Eric Haase (7th Round, 2011 Draft) went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. There was also a Matt Packer sighting; the 2009 Draft Pick made his 2012 debut, starting and allowing a run on two hits in his inning of work. Dillon appeared for the second time, and allowed 5 runs in 3.1 innings.
Columbus: Released 3B Andy LaRoche
LaRoche was hitting .234/.331/.372, not a good line for a 28-year-old who struggled to break a .700 OPS in the PCL last year.
