Vince Velasquez virtuoso!

Fresno 5, Colorado Springs 1

W- Luis Cruz (2-2)
L- Taylor Jungmann (2-3)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizz kicked off their series in the Rockies on a winning note.

Luis Cruz was strong in his 6 innings as he allowed a run on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. The three relievers that came in after him threw 1 inning apiece. Tyson Perez was first; he allowed a hit and struck out 2 in the 7th. Richard Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 8th, fanning 2, and Jordan Jankowski struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Matt Duffy kicked things off with an RBI single in the 1st. Carlos Correa later added another run when he scored on a double play. Alex Presley finishd 2-4 with 2 doubles; his 2nd drove in 2 runs in the 6th inning. Robbie Grossman hit a single in the 7th, and an error on the play allowed Nolan Fontana to score.

Brady Rodgers gets the start in game 2 of this series. He'll face Tyler Thornnburg at 7:05 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 6, Northwest Arkansas 1

W- Vince Velasquez (3-0)
L- Miguel Almonte (4-3)

CC home runs: None.

Vince Velasquez delivered a masterful performance on the mound as the Hooks took the first of 3 games from the Naturals. The players who were in the lineup and recorded a hit actually all finished with 2 hits: Tony Kemp, Jio Mier, Andrew Aplin, Tyler White, Danry Vásquez, and Roberto Peña.

Velasquez took a no-hitter into the 7th before Jorge Bonifacio ruined everything by taking him deep with 1 out in the 7th. That homer was the only hit Vince allowed in his 7 innings; he walked 2 and struck out 9. Travis Ballew allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 over 2 scoreless innings.

Tyler White opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st inning. One batter later, Conrad Gregor added a sac fly. Tony Kemp hit an RBI single in the 2nd, and Jio Mier hit an RBI double in the 4th. Gregor hit his 2nd sac fly of the game in the 5th inning. He grounded into a force out in the 7th, and on the ensuing error, Jio scored.

In game 2 of this series, Mark Appel will take on J.C. Sulbaran. First pitch is at 7:05.

High Desert 9, Lancaster 8

W- Juan Grullon (3-0)
L- Reymin Guduan (0-2, 3-2 season)

Lancaster home runs: A.J. Reed (14, 3-run in 2nd), Marc Wik (1, solo in 3rd)

Well, that stunk. The JetHawks' miscues came back to bite them as an early 7-0 lead eroded and transformed into a walkoff loss, snapping their 5-game winning streak and foiling their bid to sweep the series.

A.J. Reed had a solid night, going 3-5. He kicked things off with an RBI single in the 1st, then whacked a 3-run homer in the 2nd. Before Reed's blast, the JetHawks got RBI singles from Brett Phillips and J.D. Davis.

Marc Wik entered this game with 2 extra-base hits all season. He exceeded that total as he hit for the cycle. He singled in the 2nd, homered in the 3rd, tripled in the 6th, and doubled in the 8th. Wik also scored 3 runs. Phillips brought him home after his triple with a groundout. Alfredo Gonzalez finished 2-4.

Bryan Radziewski allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out a career-high 8 over 6 innings. Unfortunately, he had to settle for a no-decision. Albert Minnis was the first man out of the bullpen; he went 1.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Frederick Tiburcio got the final out of the 8th and came out for the 9th, but he served up a 2-run homer to Alex Burg. He allowed a single before the homer. Reymin Guduan came on to try to extract the JetHawks from a real quagmire, and he quickly got 2 outs. He issued a walk to Kellin Deglan.

Sadly, that's when the wheels fell off for him. An error on a play that should have ended the game breathed new life into the Mavericks. One batter later, Luis Marte tied the game with a single. Defensive indifference opened up 1st base, so Guduan issued an intentional walk to load them up, setting up a force at any base. It never got to that point because Guduan uncorked a wild pitch, sending the winning run home. That really stunk.

The JetHawks are off today. Tomorrow, they'll begin a 4-game set with Rancho Cucamonga, the team directly above them in the standings.

Quad Cities was off

The River Bandits will begin a 3-game set in Grand Rapids, where the West Michigan Whitecaps await. Jorge Perez will start game 1 for the Banditos; he'll take on Trent Szkutnik. This game is just beginning.

DSL Indians 4, DSL Astros Blue 0

W- Felix Tati (1-0)
L- Jose Rosario (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team suffered their first loss as they were held off the scoreboard. Reiny Beltre had 3 of their 5 hits, one of which was a double.

Jose Rosario went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1. Felipe Tejada tagged in for 3 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 7. Saul Martinez walked 2 in a scoreless 8th, and Framber Valdez struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

These two teams are currently in a game at the Indians complex.

DSL Angels 6, DSL Astros Orange 5

W- Raymundo Gonzalez (1-0)
L- Maikel Sepulveda (0-1)

Orange home runs: None.

Unfortunately, this loss condemned the Orange team to the cellar in their division. However, there's still plenty of season remaining, so hopefully they can shake off this slow start.

They got a pair in the 1st as Anthony Rodriguez hit an RBI single and scored on a wild pitch. Rodriguez scored again in the 3rd on a single from Carlos Canelon. They took the lead with 2 runs in the 8th as Ronny Rafael hit an RBI single, and Juan Fuente (he dropped the S from his last name) scored on a wild pitch. Rodriguez, Rafael, and Miguelangel Sierra both finished with 2 hits.

Juan Robles went 3 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs, a double, and walked 4, and struck out 2. Juan Cuevas allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings. Harlen Florencio faced 2 batters in the 6th, but he walked them both. Maikel Sepulveda got the Orange team out of that bases-loaded jam in the 6th. He went 2.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him), 2 hits, and walked 1. Luis Vasquez got 2 outs in the 9th, but the 2nd out was a sac fly that brought home the winning run. He issued an intentional walk.

The Orange team is looking to get off the schneid at home. They're playing the Angels again.
