Omaha was shut out by Salt Lake, 3-0 as they split the four-game series.
Everett Teaford carried a no-hitter into the sixth (though he walked two) before allowing a single with one out. Then things fell apart for Teaford, as he walked the next batter and then allowed back-to-back hits that drove in three runs. So he went from a no-hitter to losing in a very small amount of time.
NW Arkansas lost in Corpus Christi, 7-3.

All three of the Naturals runs came via solo homeruns, including Jorge Bonifacio‘s first Double-A homer (he went 2-for-4).
With two outs in the top of the 3rd inning, Jared Schlehuber hit his eighth homerun of the season, a two-run shot, to put the Blue Rocks on the board.
Leonel Santiago earned the complete game victory, throwing five shutout innings. He allowed just three hits and one walk.
