A.J. Reed continues his vulgar display of power.

Sacramento 4, Fresno 1

W- Jean Machi (1-0)
L- Jordan Jankowski (3-2)
S- Erik Cordier (4)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies were foiled in their attempt to sweep the series as they were held to just 3 hits.

Their only run came in the 2nd on a sac fly from Robbie Grossman. Tony Kemp finished 1-4 with a stolen base (6, 21 season), extending his hitting streak to 20 games in the process.

Luis Cruz went 5.1 innings and the only run he allowed came on a solo homer to Darren Ford. He also allowed 4 singles, walked 5, and struck out 5. Jordan Jankowski allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1 in 1.2 innings, and James Hoyt struck out the side in the 8th, but he also allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits in the inning.

Fresno heads home tonight, where they'll begin a 4-game set with Las Vegas at 7:05 Pacific. Starter is TBA.

Corpus Christi and Frisco was postponed

Due to rain. Doubleheader is scheduled for tonight, with game 1 starting at 5:30. Michael Feliz will face Jake Thompson to start off things, and in game 2, Josh Hader will take on Chad Bell.

Lancaster 14, Visalia 6

W- Edison Frias (8-2)
L- Blake Perry (5-3)
S- Frederick Tiburcio (4)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis 2 (9; 2-run in 1st, 2-run in 6th), A.J. Reed (17, solo in 1st), Brian Holberton (1, 3-run in 8th)

The JetHawks put Visalia away with a 5-run 8th after the Rawhide scored 2 in the top of the inning to stay within striking distance.

Edison Frias went 7.1 innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits (4 solo homers), walked 2, and struck out 5. Frederick Tiburcio allowed 3 hits over 1.2 scoreless to earn the save.

Everyone in the Lancaster lineup had a hit except for Brett Phillips, who went 0-5 with a walk and scored a run. That run came in the 1st on the first of 2 2-run homers smacked by J.D. Davis. One batter later, A.J. Reed sent one into the night and onto the freeway. I'm not totally convinced that it landed on the freeway, to be honest. Mott Hyde tripled to lead off the 4th and later scored on a passed ball that resulted in a walk for Brian Holberton. Hyde later added a 2-run single in the 5th, and Chase McDonald brought him home with a single. Davis whacked his 2nd 2-run homer of the night in the 6th.

The JetHawks secured the win in the 8th as they got a pair of RBI singles from James Ramsay and McDonald, and Brian Holberton delivered the big hit of the night in the form of a 3-run homer, his 1st of the year. McDonald finished 3-5. Davis, Ramsay, Hyde, and Holberton had 2 hits apiece. D.J. Fisher also had 2 hits; he was the only one in that contingent to not drive in a run. Davis led the way by scoring 3 runs; everyone in the Lancaster lineup scored a run, with Reed and Jack Mayfield scoring 2 apiece.

The JetHawks welcome Lake Elsinore to The Hangar for the final series of the 1st half. They enter this game just 1 behind Rancho Cucamonga for the lead in the California League South.

In game 1, Kevin Comer will face Kyle Lloyd. First pitch is at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities 2, Clinton 0 in 10 innings

W- Justin Ferrell (1-0)
L- Ronald Dominguez (0-1)
S- Angel Heredia (1)

QC home runs: Jamie Ritchie (3, 2-run in 10th)

Well, 18 zeroes were put up on the scoreboard,, but the Banditos finally got the breakthrough.

That breakthrough came in the form of a 2-run homer from Jamie Ritchie, which turned out to be the difference in this game, as 3 Quad Cities pitchers combined on a 4-hitter.

Jorge Perez allowed 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5 over 5 shutout innings. Justin Ferrell, in his season debut, allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 over 4 scoreless. Angel Heredia closed it out with a 1-2-3 10th inning.

In the series finale, Brock Dykxhoorn will face Lukas Schiraldi. First pitch is at 6:30.

DSL Astros Blue 6, DSL Royals 5

W- Luidin Toribio (2-0)
L- Frandy Diaz (1-1)

Blue home runs: Cristopher Luciano (1, 2-run in 4th), Jose Benjamin (1, walk-off 3-run in 9th)

Jose Benjamin was the hero as he rescued the Blue team with his 1st homer of the season, putting them back on top after the Royals had scored 4 in the top of the 9th to take the lead.

Cristopher Luciano opened the scoring with a 2-run homer in the 4th. Orlando Marquez hit a sac fly in the 9th to cut the deficit to 2 runs. Reiny Beltre and Luciano, who both had 2 hits and scored twice, found themselves on base for Benjamin, who ended the game with one swing of the bat.

Diogenes Almengo allowed a hit, walked 4, and struck out 5 over 5 shutout innings. Joel Belboder was excellent in 3 innings and came out for the 9th, but the wheels fell off for him in that inning. He allowed 4 runs (3 earned, 3 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits and struck out 3. Luidin Toribio allowed all 3 of Belboder's runners to score. He also allowed 1 run of his own on 2 hits in the 9th.

The Blue team will host the Rays today.

DSL Rangers1 6,  DSL Astros Orange 5

W- Sergio Suarez (3-0)
L- Gabriel Pirela (1-3)

Orange home runs: Marcos Almonte (1, solo in 1st)

The Orange team couldn't hold a 5-2 lead and wound up walking off with the loss.

Marcos Almonte opened up the scoring with his 1st homer of the year in the 1st inning. He grounded into a double play in the 3rd, which allowed Hector Martinez to score. Angel Tejeda finished 2-4 and cleared the bases with a triple in the 6th. Also joining Tejeda in finishing 2-4 were Felix Lucas, Anthony Rodriguez, and Ronny Rafael.

Franklin Perez went 3 innings and allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Starlyng Sanchez pitched 4 innings and allowed a run on 5 hits and struck out 2. Ezequiel Madera allowed an unearned run, walked 1, and struck out 2 in the 8th. Luis Vasquez faced 2 batters in the 9th and walked them both. Those 2 batters eventually scored and were charged to him. Gabriel Pirela only recorded 1 out in the 9th via strikeout, and the Rangers walked off with the win off of him. He allowed a run of his own on 3 hits.

The Orange team is playing at the Cardinals complex today.
