AAA: Albuquerque 7, Sacramento 3 (10 Innings)
- It’s October…and it’s still minor league baseball season (for some leagues, at least). First time in history that’s the case.
- Bryce Johnson knocked his ninth home run of the season, with a 3-hit game in his first game since September 19th. If Johnson can manage to hit one more home run in the final couple of days of the season, he will double his previous season high of five that he hit in 2019, which he did between High-A and Double-A.
- Jason Krizan also had a 3-hit game, with a double, his 26th of the season. Krizan has a .319 batting average, but has never previously finished a season with an average over .300. His highest average in a season was .294 in 2016, split between Double-A and Triple-A.
- Ronnie Williams had his best start of the season, with five shutout innings on just two hits and two walks. It was his longest start of the season, either at Double-A or Triple-A, and was a strong bounce-back after giving up five runs in 2.0 innings in his last start.

- Mauricio Pierre hit his first triple of the season, 39 games into it. He also has seven doubles and five home run on the year so far.
- Gerelmi Maldonado had the start, allowing a run in 4.0 innings on three hits and a walk. Maldonado started the season with a 135.00 ERA after giving up five runs to just one out, and has steadily lowered it. He now has a 5.22 ERA in 29.1 innings this season.
