In Arizona: Three Brewer pitchers got shelled and allowed all eleven runs in the Javelinas' 11-6 loss to Phoenix. Josh Butler, attempting to bounce back from strep throat, started and allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks in three innings. He was followed to the mound by Rob Wooten, who allowed three runs on three hits in one inning (and had an error on a pickoff throw). Omar Aguilar finished off the game by allowing two runs on four hits and a walk in two innings of work, but did get three strikeouts.
Both Butler and Aguilar also allowed home runs to AFL phenom Grant Desme, who is batting .469/.544/1.143 in 49 ABs with ten home runs. He's on pace for 23 homers: the AFL record is 14.
- Adam Heether went 1-for-3 with a walk and drove in a run in Caracas' 6-3 loss to Magallanes.
- Brendan Katin went 1-for-4 and struck out three times in Zulia's 7-1 loss to Aragua.
- Ryan Houston got roughed up a bit in his VWL debut, allowing two runs on three hits (one home run) in .2 innings of work, picking up a blown save and a loss in Lara's 9-8 loss to Caribes.
- The only VWL game with no Brewers in it was probably the game of the day: La Guaira's 18-17 win over Margarita.
In the Dominican Republic: Erick Almonte went 1-for-4, scored a run and struck out twice in Cibao's 4-3, 10 inning loss to Aguilas on Tuesday.
