Corpus Christi 6, Springfield 3

W- Kyle Westwood (6-3)
L- Andrew Morales (4-5)
S- Chris Cotton (3, 7 season)

CC home runs: Jon Kemmer (11, 2-run in 4th)

The Hooks got a measure of revenge on the Cardinals by winning this series; Springfield swept the Hooks last week when they were in Missouri.

A.J. Reed's first plate appearance in the Texas League was a double to lead off the 2nd. He advanced to 3rd on a Colin Moran single and scored the Hooks' first run of the evening on an RBI single from Alfredo Gonzalez. Moran was picked off 2nd, but Danry Vásquez took his place on the bases with a single. A wild pitch allowed both Alfredo and Danry to advance a base. Brett Phillips followed with a 2-run single. Jon Kemmer whacked his 11th homer of the season, a 2-run shot in the 4th that put Corpus up 5-1. Kemmer led off the bottom of the 7th with a walk and came all the way around to score on an RBI double from Moran.

Phillips and Kemmer had 2 hits apiece, while Moran went 3-4.

Kyle Westwood had a solid night as he allowed 2 runs on 5 hits (4 singles and a solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 2 in 7.1 innings of work. Aaron West allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 2 over 1.1 innings, and Chris Cotton struck out Derek Gibson for the final out of the game.

R.J. Alaniz will be on the mound for the Hooks tonight as they look for the sweep. He'll take on Arturo Reyes at 7:05.

High Desert 8, Lancaster 6

W- Ryne Slack (7-1)
L- Kevin Comer (1-3, 6-4 season)
S- Adam Parks (1)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks took a 4-2 lead into the 7th, only to see the Mavericks score 5 in the top of the inning to take the lead. They couldn't quite recover from that flurry of runs.

Mott Hyde reached on an error in the 1st and scored the first run of the game on a D.J. Fisher triple. Chase McDonald was plunked with the bases loaded in the 6th to tie the game at 2, and Ronnie Mitchell followed with a 2-run single to give Lancaster the lead. McDonald drove in 2 runs in a considerably less painful fashion with a single in the 8th. James Ramsay was 2-5 with a double at the top of the order. Hyde, J.D. Davis, and Jake Nottingham scored 2 runs apiece.

Kevin Comer went 6.2 innings and allowed 5 runs on 9 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 5. Andrew Walter allowed 3 runs on 3 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and fanned 2 in 2.1 innings. He uncorked a wild pitch that allowed a run to score in the 9th. Omar Lopez voiced his displeasure at the safe at home call and was given the boot.

Austin Chrismon will be on the mound for the series finale. He'll face David Ledbetter at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities 3, Burlington 2

W- Justin Ferrell (2-2)
L- Keynan Middleton (4-6)
S- Angel Heredia (4)

QC home runs: Sean McMullen (5, solo in 2nd)

The Banditos got a fantastic performance from Justin Ferrell, who flirted with a no-hitter for 7 innings.

Ferrell ultimately went 7.1 innings and allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, walked 4, and struck out 4. He lost the no-hitter when Natanael Delgado doubled to lead off the 8th inning. The 2 runs came on an RBI single and a sac fly. Angel Heredia was summoned for the save, and things started off rather shaky. The Bees greeted Heredia with 2 singles to load the bases with 1 out, but he clamped down and got the final 2 outs of the inning without incident. He followed with a 1-2-3 9th. In all, those 2 singles to begin his outing were the only hits that Heredia allowed, and he struck out 2 in 1.2 innings.

Bobby Boyd led off the 1st with a single, and an errant pickoff throw allowed him to advance to 3rd. He scored the first run of the day on a Jamie Ritchie groundout. Sean McMullen cranked a solo shot with 2 outs in the 2nd. That was his 5th homer of the year. Ryan Bottger walked to lead off the 7th and came around to score on a Kristian Trompiz double. McMullen, Bottger, Boyd, and Ramon Laureano all had 2-hit games.

In the series finale, David Paulino will take on Justin Anderson. First pitch is at 7:00.

Tri-City 3, State College 0

W- Dean Deetz (3-1)
L- Landon Beck (1-2)
S- Juan Carlos Santos (2)

TC home runs: None.

The ValleyCats took the series as Dean Deetz, Agapito Barrios, and Juan Carlos Santos combined on a 5-hit shutout.

Deetz allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and whiffed 4 over 5 innings. Barrios allowed 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 2.2 innings. He left the bases loaded for Santos in the 8th, but Santos was able to avert disaster. He retired all 4 Spikes batters he faced with 2 groundouts and 2 flyouts to secure the win.

Pat Porter was the ValleyCats offense. He finished 3-4 and opened up the scoring by ripping a 2-run double in the 2nd. He added an RBI single in the 7th. Drew Ferguson finished 2-4 and scored 2 of Tri-City's 3 runs.

The ValleyCats will look for the sweep as Harold Arauz faces Carson Cross. First pitch is at noon Eastern.

Greeneville 5, Pulaski 2

W- Salvador Montaño (1-1)
L- Juan Jimenez (0-1)

Greeneville home runs: Randy Cesar (2, 2-run in 8th)

A late uprising from the Appy Astros netted them the victory.

For 6 innings, they were held in check by Nestor Cortes, who allowed just 3 hits. When the time came for the bullpen, though, Greeneville pounced. It all started in the 7th inning as Randy Cesar and Kevin Martir drew walks. Myles Straw reached on an error to load 'em up, and Osvaldo Duarte made the Yankees pay for that miscue as he sent everyone home with a triple that put the Appy Astros in the lead. Cesar, who finished 2-3, provided the insurance with a 2-run homer in the 8th, his 2nd of the season. He also had a double to go along with his homer.

Albert Abreu went 5 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 2, and fanned 4. Salvador Montaño allowed a solo homer to Hoy-Jun Park in the 6th, which was the only run he allowed in his 4 innings. Montaño allowed 3 other hits, walked 3, and struck out 5.

Erasmo Pinales will be on the mound for the rubber game of this series. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.
