Yoelqui Céspedes was the lone Sox position player in the lineup today, and he hammered zero of the six Desert Dogs home runs in an 11-9 victory over the hated Peoria Javelinas. He did go 1-for-3 with a single and a strikeout and was hit by two separate pitches; he did not score in any of his three times on base.

J.B. Olson was the second Sox pitcher to get into a game, and while he received he did not cover himself in glory. He entered in the sixth with an 8-4 lead and runners on first and second, and immediately allowed a double to score one of those inherited runs. After a 1-2-3 seventh, Olson allowed a leadoff single in the eighth, then got to two outs and two strikes on Ji-hwan Bae before Bae went deep; while this did bring the Javelinas to eight runs, the Dogs had scored three in the meantime and so still lead, 11-8. The final score would be 11-9, thanks in part to a pair of Cardinals prospect Lars Nootbaar dongs.
