Results for Sunday, May 10, 2015

Lancaster sweep!

Fresno 3, Tacoma 2

W- Jake Buchanan (3-1)
L- Trey Cochran-Gill (0-1)
S- Tyson Perez (2, 3 season)

Fresno home runs: None.

A 3-run 2nd inning held up for the Grizzlies, who took a 2-1 lead in this series.

Jake Buchanan was perfect through 4 innings; he ultimately went 7.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 1. Tyson Perez got the 4-out save by retiring all 4 Rainiers he faced, striking out 1.

Jon Singleton walked to lead off the bottom of the 2nd, advanced to 2nd on an error by Tacoma 3B Carlos Rivero, and then scored the first run of the day on another error by Rivero when he fielded an Andrew Aplin sac bunt and promptly unleashed an errant throw. Matt Dominguez advanced to 3rd on the play, while Aplin took 2nd. After a Max Stassi groundout, Joe Sclafani walked to load the bases. Nolan Fontana would come through with a 2-run single, although the inning came to an abrupt end when he was caught stealing after L.J. Hoes struck out.

The Grizz look to win this series as Dan Straily gets the start. He'll take on Justin Germano at 12:05 Pacific.

San Antonio 6, Corpus Christi 5

W- Michael Dimock (2-1)
L- Dan Minor (0-1)
S- Tayron Guerrero (2)

CC home runs: Teoscar Hernandez 2 (3; solo in 6th, solo in 8th)

Well, after five zeroes, the Hooks offense got themselves going as they scored in their final four innings. They put up 1 in the 6th, 1 in the 7th, and 1 in the 8th to erase a 3-0 deficit that existed since the 1st. Unfortunately, the Missions put up 3 in the 8th to regain the lead. Corpus rallied back to make it a 1-run game in the top of the 9th, but.... unfortunately, they left the tying run 90 feet away from home to end the game.

Teoscar Hernandez put Corpus on the board with his first homer of the game in the 6th inning. Conrad Gregor doubled to lead off the 7th and would score on a Jon Kemmer groundout. Teoscar went deep once again to tie the game at 3. Carlos Correa led off the top of the 9th with a triple and Gregor brought him home with a double. Kemmer struck again as he drove in Gregor with a single. He advanced to 3rd on a Tyler Heineman single, putting runners on the corners for Teoscar, but sadly, he couldn't come through, popping out in foul territory to end the game.

Josh Hader survived a rough 1st inning and ended up going 6 innings. He allowed 3 runs (1 earned, all in the 1st), 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Travis Ballew worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 7th. The Missions got to Dan Minor, who got 2 outs in the 8th (1 via strikeout), but not before allowing 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 2 hits. The one run he allowed that wasn't inherited was the go-ahead run; he also issued 2 walks. Juan Minaya got the final out of the 8th, but he also allowed a 2-run single that scored the 2 runners he inherited from Minor.

Game 3 of this series will begin shortly; it's an 11:05 first pitch. Chris Devenski will take on Justin Hancock.

Lancaster 9, Lake Elsinore 8

W- Tyler Brunnemann (1-0)
L- Eric Yardley (0-1)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (5, solo in 1st)

In a wild back-and-forth affair, the JetHawks walked off with a win for the 2nd time in the series and swept the Storm out of The Hangar.

J.D. Davis put the JetHawks on the board with his 5th homer of the year in the 1st inning. The JetHawks took off for 4 in the 2nd as Alfredo Gonzalez got his first RBI in the Cal League with a single. Brett Phillips followed with an RBI single, and Danry Vásquez delivered a big blow with a 2-run triple. After the Storm answered with 3 in the 3rd to cut the Lancaster lead to 1, Jack Mayfield hit an RBI single in the 5th to extend the 'Hawks lead.

The Storm tied the game with 2 in the 6th and took the lead with 1 in the 7th, but Lancaster managed to tie the game in the 8th as James Ramsay came through with an RBI single. Fernando Perez put Lake Elsinore back in front with a solo homer in the top of the 9th, but the JetHawks would have the final say in this one. After Danry struck out to begin the bottom of the 9th, the last 4 batters for the JetHawks reached base. J.D. Davis and A.J. Reed both singled, and then Ronnie Mitchell, who came on as a pinch-hitter, came through with an RBI double to tie the game at 8. One batter later, Jack Mayfield ended it with a single. Davis (2B, solo HR, 3 R) and Mayfield (2 RBI singles, 2 R) both finished 4-5. Danry Vásquez and Alfredo Gonzalez had 2 hits apiece.

Troy Scribner pitched 4.1 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. Albert Minnis faced 1 batter and on 1 pitch, he got the final 2 outs of the 5th. Efficiency! Evan Grills went 3+ innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 4. Tyler Brunnemann came on in the 9th with a runner on, and he got the JetHawks out of the inning without further damage being done. He struck out 1.

After a day off, the JetHawks will begin a roadtrip. First stop, Visalia for 3 games beginning tomorrow at 6:00 Pacific. Adrian Houser will face Zack Godley.

Quad Cities was off

The River Bandits will begin a 3-game series against Beloit at 7:00 in a battle of the Dans. The Banditos will be sending out Mengden and his 'stache, while the Snappers have Gossett and his long, blonde locks.
