• Hector Noesi pitched his best game since being sent down to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, giving up two earned runs and five hits in seven innings as the Rainiers beat Oklahoma City, 4-3, in 11 innings.
Noesi struck out five and walked one, retiring the last 14 batters he faced after allowing two runs in the first, but wound up with a no-decision. He is now 0-3 with an 8.17 ERA in five starts with Tacoma.
• Outfielder Leon Landry, one of the two prospects acquired from the Dodgers in the Brandon League trade last week, hit for the cycle in his third game with Class A High Desert on Friday. Landry went 4-for-5 with four RBIs and is now hitting .331 in 83 Class A games this year.
• Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez had a good day working out with Tacoma on Friday, according to Wedge, and will be reevaluated Sunday before any decision is made on when he'll begin his Minor League rehab stint. Gutierrez has been dealing with headaches and an inner-ear problem since being hit in the head with a pickoff throw on June 29.
