W- Asher Wojciechowski (5-0)
L- Jake Peavy (0-1)
S- Tyson Perez (5, 6 season)

Fresno home runs: Tony Kemp (1, inside-the-park solo in 5th)

The Grizzlies got the better of a rehabbing Giants starting pitcher for the 2nd consecutive night.

Asher Wojciechowski was excellent as he allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 7 innings of work. Jose Veras threw a 1-2-3 8th, and Tyson Perez worked around a walk to close it out.

L.J. Hoes went 2-4 and put Fresno on the board first with a 2-run double in the 1st. Tony Kemp, who scored 2 of Fresno's 3 runs, led off the 5th with his first home run at the AAA level, and it was of the inside-the-park variety.

Fresno looks to sweep the series tonight at 7:05 Pacific. Luis Cruz will take the mound, and he'll face Chris Stratton.

San Antonio 4, Corpus Christi 2

W- Justin Hancock (6-2)
L- Chris Devenski (7-1)

The Hooks had to settle for the split as Chris Devenski got knocked around for the first time this season.

Devenski, who suffered his first loss of the campaign, also saw his ERA rise above 1. He went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs on 8 hits (solo homer) and struck out 3. He allowed 4 runs all season entering this game. Aaron West struck out 2 over 2 perfect innings.

Tyler White opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. The other Corpus run came courtesy of a Jio Mier RBI single in the 4th. Jio and Roberto Peña both went 2-4 from the bottom of the order.

The JetHawks got even in this series behind huge nights from A.J. Reed and Brett Phillips.

Reed hit for the cycle. He's the 2nd JetHawk to accomplish this feat; Marc Wik hit for the cycle on June 2. He hit a solo homer in the 1st, ripped an RBI double in the 5th, added an RBI triple in the 7th, and finished with an 8th-inning single. James Ramsay finished 3-5 with an RBI single in the 1st and a solo homer in the 6th, his 6th. Brett Phillips had another monster night as he also went 3-5; his 3 hits were 2 doubles and a 3-run homer in the 8th. He scored the first run of the evening on a wild pitch in the 1st. Jack Mayfield also finished 3-5; he had an RBI single in the 7th. D.J. Fisher hit a sac fly in the 5th.

Adrian Houser went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits and struck out 5. Troy Scribner finished it off by allowing a run on 4 hits, walking 1, and striking out 4 in 4 innings.

Edison Frias will get the start in the series finale. He'll take on Blake Perry at 6:30 Pacific.

Clinton 6, Quad Cities 5 in 11 innings

W- Kody Kerski (1-2)
L- Eric Peterson (2-3)

QC home runs: Jake Nottingham (10, 3-run in 3rd)

The Banditos had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the 11th fall by the wayside. They stranded the bases loaded, and the LumberKings wound up walking off with the win in the bottom half of the inning because baseball likes to work like that.

4 of Quad Cities' 5 runs came in the 3rd, with the big hit coming in the form of a 3-run homer whacked by Jake Nottingham, his 10th blast of the season. Before that, Jason Martin grounded into a force out that scored Bobby Boyd. Ryan Bottger drew a bases-loaded walk in the 7th. Jamie Ritchie went 2-2 with 4 walks and a run scored from the top of the lineup.

Brandon McNitt allowed 5 runs on 5 hits (solo homer) and walked 3 in 3 innings. Aaron Greenwood was the first man out; he threw 3 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 2, and striking out 2. Ryan Thompson allowed a hit, walked 3, and struck out 4 as he also threw 3 scoreless. Eric Peterson threw a scoreless 10th, but ended up allowing the winning run in the 11th as he plunked Joe DeCarlo with the bases loaded. Tough way to end it. Peterson got 1 out in the 11th and allowed a triple, walked 2 (1 intentionally), and struck out 2.

In game 2 of this series, Jorge Perez will face Eric's twin brother, Pat. First pitch is at 6:30.

Reiny Beltre opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. Oscar Campos added an RBI single in the 2nd, and then later scored on a sac fly from Wilson Amador. In the 3rd, Angel De Leon scored on a force out and Campos added another RBI single to his ledger. Beltre scored in the 7th after an Angel De Leon strikeout got away from the catcher. De Leon reached safely, stole 2nd (2), and scored on a single from Cristopher Luciano. Beltre added a sac fly in the 8th. Luciano, Jose Benjamin, Campos, and Juan Piñeda all had 2 hits apiece. Andy Piñeda went 0-3 with a walk and a run scored, but he stole 2 bases (12).

Michel Martinez went 3 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Jorge Alcala was the first man out of the Blue team bullpen; he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 2 innings. Cristofer Melendez pitched 1.1 innings, allowing a run on 2 hits and walking 1. Luis Castro was next; he got the final 2 outs of the 7th and the first one of the 8th. He allowed a run, a hit, walked 3, and struck out 1. Framber Valdez got the final 2 outs of the 8th and 1 out in the 9th. He also allowed a run, a hit, and walked 3.
