W- Jason Lane (3-2)
L- Dan Straily (2-2)
S- Cory Mazzoni (1)

Fresno home runs: Max Stassi (3, solo in 5th), Jon Singleton (5, solo in 6th)

Old friend Jason Lane topped the Grizz. Fresno cut into a 4-0 deficit and managed to make it a 1-run game, but El Paso put just enough distance between them and the Grizzlies.

Max Stassi's 3rd home run of the season put Fresno on the board in the 5th, down 4-1. Preston Tucker finished 3-4; he added an RBI single later in the inning. Jon Singleton made it a 1-run game when he led off the bottom of the 6th with a homer. Domingo Santana and Andrew Aplin both finished 2-4.

Dan Straily allowed 4 runs (1 earned) on 9 hits (8 singles and a double), walked 1, and struck out 2 over 5.1 innings. Tommy Shirley went 1.2 innings as the first man out of the pen; he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and issued a walk. Jordan Jankowski pitched the final 2 innings, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 2.

Tonight, Brett Oberholtzer makes his 2nd rehab start. He'll take on Chris Smith at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 6, Midland 1

W- Mitch Lambson (2-1)
L- Zach Neal (2-2)

CC home runs: Jon Kemmer (1, solo in 2nd), Carlos Correa (6, 3-run in 2nd)

#1 continued his massacre of the Texas League. That's really all you need to know here.

The 2 homers in the 2nd inning accounted for 4 of the 6 Hooks runs. Jon Kemmer started the inning with his 1st homer of the season, and later on in the inning, Tony Kemp hit an RBI single. After Tyler Heineman walked, Correa sent one into the sunset for a 3-run home run. Carlos finished 3-4 with that 3-run homer and added 2 stolen bases (13). Brandon Meredith added a sac fly in the 7th for the final run of the evening. Kemp, Kemmer, and Tyler White finished with 2 hits apiece.

Chris Devenski allowed 2 hits and struck out 6 over 4+ shutout innings, but he also issued 5 BBs in the process. He extended his scoreless streak to 23.1 innings. He left 2 runners on for Mitch Lambson, who struck out 2 in a scoreless 5th. Josh Hader allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 3, hit 2 batters, and struck out 4 in 3.2 innings. Travis Ballew got Colin Walsh to ground out for the final out.

Game 2 of this series is at 7:05. Mike Hauschild will take on Chris Jensen.

Stockton 8, Lancaster 1

W- Sam Bragg (1-2)
L- Blaine Sims (1-4)

Lancaster home runs: Jose Fernandez (2, led off game)

The JetHawks suffered their 6th consecutive defeat as an early lead was erased rather quickly.

Jose Fernandez finished 2-4 with a stolen base (3), and his homer to lead off the game extended his hitting streak to 14 games. It was also the only JetHawks run. Jack Mayfield and Ronnie Mitchell both finished 2-3 with a walk, and the other Lancaster hit belonged to Brian Holberton.

Blaine Sims went 5 innings and allowed 4 runs on 5 hits (2 solo homers), walked 1, and struck out 3. Adrian Houser pitched the final 3 innings, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits, walking 1, and striking out 3.

In game 3, Edison Frias takes on Lou Trivino. First pitch is at 7:10 Pacific.

Quad Cities 4, Kane County 0

W- Dan Mengden (2-1)
L- Brent Jones (1-3)

QC home runs: None.

7 in a row for the River Bandits, whose 20-6 mark is the best in all of baseball. Dan Mengden, his 'stache, and two relievers combined on a 6-hitter.

Mengden allowed 5 hits and fanned 4 over 6 shutout innings. Keegan Yuhl was the first man out; he allowed a hit over 2 scoreless. The Closer, Ryan Thompson, did just that, striking out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Everyone in the lineup had a hit except for Bobby Boyd, who went 0-2 with a walk and a run scored. The Banditos got deuces in the 4th and the 7th inning. In the 4th, Sean McMullen ripped an RBI double, and Jason Martin followed that up with an RBI single; McMullen was thrown out at home to end the inning. Boyd scored in the 7th on a safety squeeze from Mott Hyde that was scored as a sacrifice. One batter later, Nick Tanielu hit an RBI single. Tanielu finished 3-5, and Kristian Trompiz went 2-4.

The River Bandits look to sweep the series later this morning as Josh James takes on Jared Miller at 11 A.M.
