Oklahoma City 10, Memphis 4

W- Mike Foltynewicz (4-3)
L- Zach Petrick (2-2)

OKC home runs: Domingo Santana 2 (9; solo in 2nd, 2-run in 3rd), Adron Chambers (2, solo in 2nd)

This game was actually made final with 2 outs in the top of the 9th as the rain rolled in.

The RedHawks took the 2nd game in this 4-game set on the strength of 2 Domingo Santana homers. No comeback in the cards for Memphis, as the bullpen stabilized itself. OKC was up by as much as 10-2 in the 8th. 

Santana put OKC on the board with a solo homer in the 2nd. Adron Chambers followed with a solo shot of his own to put the RedHawks in the lead, which turned out to be for good. Santana added a 2-run shot in the 3rd, and then Ronald Torreyes hit an RBI single in the 4th. Carlos Perez went 3-3 with 2 doubles; his 2nd double of the evening cleared the bases in the 7th, and he would come around to score on a Robbie Grossman double. Chambers brought home the RedHawks' final run of the evening on a sac fly in the 8th. Austin Wates finished 3-5 with a double and 3 runs scored. Torreyes, Santana, and Kiké Hernandez had 2 hits apiece; Hernandez is now on a 10-game hitting streak. 

Mike Foltynewicz pitched 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out 2. Chia-Jen Lo allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in 1.1 innings, and Rhiner Cruz got the final 2 outs of the 8th. 

Jake Buchanan will face Scott McGregor in game 3 of this series. First pitch is at 6:05.

Corpus Christi 7, Northwest Arkansas 4

W- Troy Scribner (2-0)
L- Cody Fassold (1-1)
S- Andrew Robinson (2)

CC home runs: Preston Tucker (11, solo in 4th)

The Hooks took the opener with a 4-run 8th which gave them a 6-3 lead. The big hit in that frame belonged to Tyler Heineman, who cleared the bases with a triple. He would score on an RBI bunt single from Delino DeShields. Joe Sclafani added an RBI single in the 9th. 

Before they closed the game on a 5-1 run, the Hooks' 2 runs came back in the 4th inning. Preston Tucker put the Hooks on the board with his 11th homer of the season, a solo shot that tied the game at 1. Telvin Nash followed that up with an RBI single to give Corpus the lead. They, along with DeShields, had 2-hit nights; Tucker also added a steal (3) and scored twice. Nolan Fontana went 1-3 with a run scored and 2 walks; he's now on a 7-game hitting streak. 

Mike Hauschild went 5 innings and gave up 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits (solo homer) and struck out 6. Travis Ballew walked 2 in the 6th, but still posted a scoreless inning. Troy Scribner got dinged by a solo homer from Orlando Calixte in the 8th. That turned out to be the only hit he would allow in his 1.2 innings; he walked 1 and struck out 2. Andrew Robinson finished it off by retiring all 4 Naturals he faced, striking out 1.

In the middle game of this series, Luis Cruz will take on J.C. Sulbaran at 6:05.

Lancaster 6, Inland Empire 2

W- Josh Hader (4-0)
L- Yeiper Castillo (0-1, 3-4 season)
S- Chris Devenski (3)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks soared out of the gate, leading 5-0 after the 2nd. They also got solid performances on the mound from Josh Hader and Chris Devenski as they got even in the series. 

Hader had another nice outing as he went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. Devenski brought it home with 4 scoreless; he allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and fanned 3.

Carlos Correa opened the scoring with an RBI groundout in the 1st. The JetHawks loaded the bases with 3 straight singles to open the 2nd, then got 4 runs from a Tony Kemp walk, a couple of sac flies from Teoscar Hernandez and Rio Ruiz, and an error that allowed Kemp to score. Kemp, who went 0-1 with 2 runs scored and 4 walks, drew another bases-loaded walk in the 5th. Carlos Perdomo, Jordan Scott, and Ruben Sosa all had 2 hits apiece. Correa's double represented the only JetHawks extra-base hit.

Game 3 of this series features Zach Morton on the mound. He'll face Mark Sappington at 2:00 Pacific.

Quad Cities 5, Cedar Rapids 2

W- Jandel Gustave (4-2)
L- Ethan Mildren (0-3)
S- Andrew Walter (4)

QC home runs: Conrad Gregor (1, 3-run in 6th), Tyler White (2, solo in 6th)

A 4-run 6th was the difference as the Bandits completed the series sweep. They are now above .500 for the first time since a 3-2 win over West Michigan on April 16 gave them a 6-5 record. 

James Ramsay led off the bottom of the 1st by drawing a walk, advanced to 3rd when a pickoff throw went awry, and scored the first run of the game on a passed ball. Down 2-1 entering the bottom of the 6th, Conrad Gregor put QC in the driver's seat with his first blast of the season. The 3-run homer put the River Bandits up 4-2, and Tyler White followed that up by going back-to-back with a solo shot. 

Jandel Gustave was solid in his 6.2 innings; he allowed 2 runs on 7 hits, walked 2, and struck out 8 on the way to getting the win in his 3rd consecutive appearance. Andrew Walter closed it out with 2.1 scoreless, allowing a hit and striking out 1.

The River Bandits are in Burlington for 3 beginning today at 2:00. Evan Grills will start the opener against Harrison Cooney.
