John Koronka (4.66 ERA/.283 BAA) walked the bases loaded in the first inning and then one more in the second, but he still settled down to post a quality start.
Despite throwing 114 pitches in six innings, Koronka gave up just two runs on three hits, walking four and fanning six.
Left fielder Jason Botts (.317/.421/.513) was 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, and two walks.

W – Herrera (2-0)
SV – Ingram (13)
HR – Fasano (7)
Eric Hurley was ejected in the bottom of the fourth inning for hitting Brant Colamarino – who had homered off him earlier in the game – with a pitch. But Hurley did impressive work before being tossed. The right-hander struck out seven in 3 2/3 innings, allowing one run on three hits.
Lefty Danny Herrera (3.72 ERA/.278 BAA) picked up his first win at the Double-A level with 3 1/3 solid innings of relief. The Odessa native allowed one run on two hits, walking one and fanning five.
Designated hitter Jim Fasano (.296/.343/.504) was 1-for-4 with a two run homer, his seventh long ball of the season.
German Duran and Steve Murphy each singled twice in four at-bats while right fielder Anthony Webster was 2-for-4 with a double.
L – Knippschild (2-2)

Starting pitcher Kendy Batista yielded three runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out two.
Siderarming reliever Josh Giles (5.34 ERA/.233 BAA) allowed just one hit in 2 1/3 scoreless innings.
