Kyle Jensen hit his 23rd home run in an easy 7-1 win for New Orleans at Zephyr Field on Tuesday. Jensen isn't hitting them out at as high of a rate as 2013, but his 23 bombs are just less than two other PCL sluggers this season. New Orleans crawls back up to .500, at 59-59, with the win.

Greensboro had a big four-run sixth inning to come back and pick up a win Tuesday in Delmarva. This marks the Hoppers 73rd win on the year, pushing Greensboro back into first place in the Sally League Northern division. Coco Johnson and Brian Anderson had big days at the plate to supply the pitching staff with just enough run support.
