— Indianapolis (57-47) lost to Rochester, 3-1. Clay Holmes had control problems early and came out after four innings, although his pitch count was still just 72.

They had only five hits in the game. Kevin Newman singled his first time up but came out for a pinch runner. He fouled a pitch off his shin earlier in the at-bat and it swelled up.
