L- Austin Chrismon (1-1, 5-2 season)
S- Jordan Hershiser (1)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (10, 2-run in 6th)

The Storm struck late and caught the JetHawks by surprise.

D.J. Fisher opened up the scoring with a sac fly in the 1st inning. J.D. Davis added to the Lancaster lead with his 10th homer of the year, a 2-run shot in the 6th. Unfortunately, the Storm scored 4 in the 8th, and the only response Lancaster could muster up was an A.J. Reed sac fly. James Ramsay went 3-4 with a double and a run scored. Davis was 2-4, and in his season debut, Ruben Castro was 2-4 with a double.

Dan Mengden started it off with 5 shutout innings, allowing 2 hits, walking 4, and striking out 6. Unfortunately, the Storm pounded Austin Chrismon in his 2.2 innings. Chrismon allowed 5 runs on 4 hits (solo homer), walked 3, and struck out 2. Tyler Brunnemann got the final out of the 8th and 1 out in the 9th and had an inherited runner charged to him. He walked 1 and struck out 1. Reymin Guduan allowed a sac fly that allowed the runner he inherited from Brunnemann to score. Guduan got the final 2 outs of the 9th, striking out 1.

Saturday: Lake Elsinore 12, Lancaster 8

W- Zech Lemond (4-4)
L- Andrew Walter (0-1)
S- Eric Yardley (13)

Lancaster home runs: Brett Phillips (15, solo in 1st), A.J. Reed (18, 2-run in 3rd)

JetHawks pitchers had a forgettable night as they issued 12 walks and allowed 12 runs.

Brett Phillips kicked things off with his 15th homer of the year. A.J. Reed followed with an RBI single later in the 1st inning. Reed struck again in the 3rd as he sent another ball onto the freeway. The 2-run homer was his 18th of the season. Jack Mayfield scored on a wild pitch in the 7th, and James Ramsay followed with an RBI single. Ronnie Mitchell clubbed a 2-run double in the 9th. The JetHawks threatened for more as Brian Holberton reached on an error to put runners at the corners, but Phillips couldn't come through, as they caught him looking at strike 3 to end the game. Reed finished 3-5, while Ramsay (RBI, R, SB [5]) and D.J. Fisher (2B, R) had 2 hits apiece.

Bryan Radziewski went 2.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walked 6, and struck out 2. Andrew Walter was the first man out; he pitched 2 innings (final out of the 3rd, the 4th, and 2 outs in the 5th) and allowed 3 runs (all inherited runners that were charged to him in the 5th), 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Albert Minnis was unable to bail Walter out of a bases-loaded situation. Minnis pitched 1.2 innings and allowed 2 runs of his own, 5 hits, and walked 2. Frederick Tiburcio came on with the bases loaded and 1 out in the 7th and got the final 2 outs without any further damage. He ultimately went 2.1 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1. Reymin Guduan faced 1 batter and got Kyle Gaedele to ground out to end the 9th.

In the final game of the 1st half, Troy Scribner will take on Ronald Herrera at 2:00 Pacific.

Friday: Quad Cities 8, Burlington 3

W- Eric Peterson (3-3)
L- Jonah Wesely (4-2)

QC home runs: Ryan Bottger (4, solo in 5th)

After the Bees scored 1 in the 5th to tie the game at 3, the Banditos responded with 5 in the bottom half to seize control.

Christian Powell went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Eric Peterson tagged in for 3 innings and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Ryan Thompson walked 1 and fanned 2 in 2 innings.

Thomas Lindauer hit an RBI double in the 2nd to put the River Bandits on the board. Ryan Bottger added an RBI double of his own in the 3rd, and in the 4th, Ramon Laureano scored on a wild pitch. Bottger kicked things off in the 5th inning with his 4th homer of the year. Alex Hernandez hit an RBI double, and Luis Reynoso followed with and RBI single. Lindauer scored on an error as Jamie Ritchie reached on a fielder's choice. And finally, Jason Martin capped things off with an RBI single. Laureno finished 3-4 with 3 runs scored. Martin also finished with 3 hits, while Hernandez, Bottger, and Reynoso had 2 hits apiece.

Saturday: Burlington 2, Quad Cities 1

W- Austin Robichaux (6-2)
L- Francis Martes (1-2)
S- Jordan Piche (2)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos got the tying run on 2nd, but he was stranded there to end the game.

The person who represented that tying run was Ryan Bottger, who got there by way of an RBI double that spoiled the Bees' shutout bid. He finished 3-4.

Francis Martes took the hard-luck loss; he allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 2 hits, walked 2, and set a new career high with 9 strikeouts in 6 innings of work. Aaron Greenwood allowed 3 hits and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless, and Angel Heredia worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

The River Bandits will bid adieu to the 1st half of the Midwest League season this afternoon as Akeem Bostick takes the mound. He'll take on Jeremy Rhoades at 1:15.

Friday: Tri-City 3, Connecticut 2 in 10 innings

W- Yeyfry Del Rosario (1-0)
L- Jack Fischer (0-1)
S- Juan Carlos Santos (1)

TC home runs: None.

Game 1 of the New York-Penn League season went to extras, and Anthony Hermelyn was the hero.

Cesar Carrasco smacked a 2-run double in the 4th to put the ValleyCats in the lead. The Tigers got 1 in the 8th to tie the game at 2, and that's how it stood heading into extra innings. Hermelyn, however, came through by poking a single through the left side of the infield with 2 outs. Alex Melendez, who scored the go-ahead run, finished 2-4.

Rogelio Armenteros, the defector from Cuba, went 4.2 innings and allowed an unearned run on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 6. Elieser Hernandez was the first man out; he allowed an unearned run (inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits and struck out 6 in 2.2 innings. Yeyfry Del Rosario allowed a hit and struck out 2 in 1.2 innings, and Juan Carlos Santos closed out the first win of 2015 with a 1-2-3 10th, striking out 1.

Saturday: Tri-City 4, Connecticut 0

W- David Paulino (1-0)
L- Spenser Watkins (0-1)

TC home runs: None.

4 pitchers combined on a 6-hitter and the offense got a pair of 2-run innings as the ValleyCats took series #1 of the 2015 half-season.

Like he did in game 1, Cesar Carrasco drove in 2 runs. He opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. Later in the inning, Bryan Muñiz ripped an RBI double. In the 5th, Carrasco drove in another run with a fielder's choice, and Anthony Hermelyn scored on a wild pitch. Hermelyn went 2-5 and scored 2 of Tri-City's 4 runs. Garrett Stubbs and Kolbey Carpenter also finished with 2 hits.

David Paulino, making his Astros organizational debut after spending much of 2013 and all of 2014 rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, pitched 5 shutout innings and allowed 4 hits while striking out 4. Trent Thornton allowed a hit and struck out 3 in his first 2 innings as a professional. Zach Davis worked around a hit and a walk as he threw a scoreless 8th, striking out 1, and Adam Whitt's first professional inning was a 1-2-3 9th, and he struck out 1.

The ValleyCats will look for the sweep as Dean Deetz will take on Eudis Idrogo at 4:05 Eastern.

Friday: DSL Astros Blue 12, DSL Rays 6

W- Jose Rosario (3-1)
L- Cristopher Sanchez (0-1)

Blue home runs: Reiny Beltre (3, 3-run in 5th)

The Blue team fell behind 6-0 after 3 innings, but that deficit was promptly erased and they scored the final 12 runs of the game.

Cristopher Luciano started it off in the 4th by drawing a walk. He made his way to 3rd thanks to a couple of wild pitches, and scored the Blue team's first run on a single from Ronny Jimenez. After an Oscar Campos single loaded the bases, Ozziel Sanchez-Galan hit an RBI single, and an error on the play allowed Jimenez to score. Reiny Beltre drove in another run in painful fashion as he was plunked. Another error allowed Sanchez-Galan and Juan Piñeda to score.

In the 5th inning, Campos smacked an RBI triple, Sanchez-Galan added a sac fly, and Beltre probably enjoyed his RBIs in the frame a little more as he whacked a 3-run homer. Luciano ripped an RBI double in the 8th for the final run of the day.

Felipe Tejada allowed 6 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits (2 2-run homers) and struck out 1 in 2 innings. Jose Rosario applied the torniquet as he allowed just 1 hit, walked 1, and struck out 6 in 4 innings. Cristian Javier struck out 3 over 2 scoreless. Jacques Sambo walked 2 in the 9th, but nothing came of those walks. He struck out 2.

Saturday: DSL Phillies 2, DSL Astros Blue 0 through 4 innings

This game was suspended due to rain. The Blue team was having a rough day in the field as they committed 5 errors.

Hector Perez pitched all 4 innings (to this point) and allowed 2 unearned runs, a single, walked 1, and struck out 5.

Andy Piñeda is 1-1 with a stolen base, his 13th of the season.

These two teams play again tomorrow, so I imagine that they'll finish this game then.

Friday: DSL Astros Orange 3, DSL Cardinals 1

W- Juan Robles (1-0)
L- David Oca (2-1)
S- Juan Cuevas (1)

Orange home runs: Hector Martinez (1, solo in 7th)

The Orange team was outhit 9-4, but they scored more runs, so getting outhit was a moot point.

Their 2 runs in the 1st came on an RBI groundout from Randy Vasquez, and an error that allowed Juan Fuente to score. Hector Martinez went deep for the first time in his career in the 7th inning.

Juan Robles went 5 innings and allowed a run on 8 hits (all singles) and struck out 1. Juan Cuevas finished it off, allowing a hit and striking out 2 over 4 innings.

Saturday: DSL Mariners2 6, DSL Astros Orange 1 through 3.5 innings

This game was also suspended due to rain. The Mariners 2 just rattled off a 6-run 4th inning.

Anardo Peralta singled to lead off the 3rd and eventually scored on a passed ball. Miguelangel Sierra has a double.

Cesar Rosado allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck otu 4 in 3 innings. Bryan Abreu allowed 3 runs on 3 hits (2-run homer) and walked 2 in the 4th.

These teams play again tomorrow, so I imagine that they'll finish this game then.
