Rain ravaged this slate of games....

Fresno 3, Salt Lake 3 through 10.5 innings

This game was suspended due to rain. This game is currently in the bottom of the 11th, and Efren Navarro singled with 2 outs before play was halted.

Luis Cruz went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits (2 solo homers), walked 1, and struck out 8. Jordan Jankowski allowed a hit and walked 1 over 2 scoreless. James Hoyt also tossed 2 scoreless innings; he allowed a hit and struck out 3. Kevin Chapman got 2 outs in the 11th and allowed the single to Navarro and struck out 1.

The 3 Fresno runs all came on home runs; Preston Tucker smashed his 6th, a 2-run blast in the 2nd, and Jon Singleton cranked a solo shot in the 4th inning.

The Grizzlies will finish up this game the next time they come back to Salt Lake City, which will be from June 11-14. They'll head home to begin a 4-game set with Reno. In game 1, Brady Rodgers will take on Robbie Ray. First pitch is at 7:05.

Corpus Christi and Fresno was postponed

Due to rain. Doubleheader tomorrow, with game 1 starting at 5:05. Josh Hader will face Jose Leclerc in game 1, while Chris Devenski takes on Victor Payano in game 2.

Lancaster 11, Modesto 10

W- Chris Cotton (1-0)
L- Rayan Gonzalez (0-1)

Lancaster home runs: Brett Phillips (2; 3-run, inside the park in 2nd), Ronnie Mitchell (2, solo in 3rd)

The JetHawks walked off with the win as they erased a 10-6 deficit with 5 in the final 2 innings. They had to withstand another barrage from Michael Benjamin, who hit 2 homers in a game for the 2nd consecutive game. Initially, Lancaster took control with 5 in the 2nd after Modesto had scored first in the top half of the inning.

A.J. Reed scored Lancaster's first run on a balk. Marc Wik followed with an RBI single, and then Brett Phillips delivered a haymaker in the form of his 3-run inside-the-park homer. Ronnie Mitchell followed by hitting his 2nd homer of the season, a solo shot in the 3rd inning. Mitchell's homer would be the last time that the JetHawks put up a run on the scoreboard until the 8th. In between, the Nuts scored 9 unanswered to take a 10-6 lead. Wik hit his 2nd RBI single of the game in the 8th inning. And so, the rally began.

Chan-Jong Moon led off the bottom of the 9th with a double, and he would score on an error that allowed Reed to reach. Chase McDonald hit a single to put 2 runners on board, and then he was replaced by James Ramsay. Mitchell, who went 4-5, hit an RBI single to make it a 1-run game. Jose Fernandez was walked to load the bases, which brought up Jobduan Morales and the end of the game. Morales grounded into a force out, that saw Fernandez get called out at 2nd, but the double play bid was botched by an errant throw by Modesto 2B Michael Benjamin, which allowed Ramsay and Mitchell to score the game-tying and winning runs, respectively. Moon (2B, R), Reed (2 R), Fernandez (2 R), and Wik (2 RBI singles) all finished with 2 hits.

Adrian Houser allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits and struck out 7 in 5 innings. Gonzalo Sañudo went 2.2 innings and allowed 5 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 6 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 3. Chris Cotton allowed a 3-run homer to Benjamin, but 2 of those 3 runs were charged to him. He struck out 2 in 1.1 innings of work.

Edison Frias gets the start in game 3 of this series. He'll face Antonio Senzatela at 6:00 Pacific.

Quad Cities and Burlington was postponed

Due to rain. This game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Sunday. The series will officially begin tonight at 6. Josh James and Sean Newcomb, the two probable starters for this game, will start on Saturday.

No Three Stars, since only one game was completed.
