San Jose CF Gary Brown (Diamond Bar HS): 1 for 4 with a single, run scored and an RBI
Bakersfield LF Josh Fellhauer (Rancho Cucamonga HS): 1 for 2 and started the play in throwing a runner out at the plate on a double in the eighth.
66ers RHP David Carpenter: After arriving in Modesto, he was told he was promoted to Double-A Arkansas, so he did not get to pitch in the game. He was not replaced on the roster by another 66er player, so no Sixer got to play in the game
