Peoria (A)
The Chiefs saw their losing streak run to three games Wednesday afternoon after they dropped a 3-1 decision at Wisconsin.

Though Peoria grabbed a 1-0 first-inning lead on Brandon Mays two-out RBI single, it would manage only four hits the rest of the afternoon. Wisconsin starter Hiram Burgos retired 12 straight at one point and allowed only one hit between the May single and the seventh inning.

Carmen Garfields two-run single in the sixth was the difference. Frank Batista took the loss though it was Ronny Morla that actually allowed the two-run single to Garfield.

Birmingham (AA)
The Barons stage a late rally Wednesday afternoon at Jacksonville but it wasnt enough as the Suns emerged with a 7-5 victory, handing the visitors their fourth consecutive loss.

Kyle McCulloch allowed six runs on seven hits in five innings in taking the loss. Eduardo Escobars three-run homer fueled the late rally.
