Tacoma 8, Fresno 7

W- Logan Kensing (1-0)
L- Mike Hauschild (2-2, 7-3 season)
S- Tom Wilhelmsen (1)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies had to settle for a split as they couldn't quite erase an early 5-run deficit. They left the tying run on 3rd to end the game.

Jonathan Villar got Fresno on the board with an RBI single in the 3rd inning. In the 4th, the Grizz put up 3 runs as Domingo Santana smacked a 2-run double and scored on a Tyler White groundout. Domingo reached on an error in the 6th that allowed Matt Duffy to score, and he made it to 3rd. White saw his 6-game hitting streak come to a close, but he drove in Santana with his 2nd groundout of the evening. Duffy, who finished 3-4, hit an RBI single in the 8th inning. He, Domingo, and L.J. Hoes scored 2 runs apiece. The other run was scored by Tyler Heineman, who finished 2-4 with a double.

Mike Hauschild went 4.2 innings and allowed 6 runs on 11 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Jose Veras allowed a run, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 1.1 innings. Jordan Jankowski, Kevin Chapman, and Tyson Perez each worked an inning: Jankowski allowed a hit and struck out 1 in a scoreless 7th, Chapman allowed a run on a triple, walked 1, and struck out 1 in the 8th, and Perez threw a 1-2-3 9th.

In their final series before the AAA All-Star break, the Grizzlies will be in Sacramento for 5 games. Mark Appel will make his 3rd start for Fresno as he takes on Chris Stratton at 7:05 Pacific.

W- Andrew Morales (4-4)

Unfortunately, the Hooks suffered the sweep as they could scratch across a run.

Mr. Chrismon allowed 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 over 7 shutout innings. Jordan Mills completed the shutout; he allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 in the final 2 frames.

The Banditos took the first game of the twinbill as David Paulino was magnificent.

Paulino allowed 5 hits and struck out 8 over 6 shutout innings, and Ryan Thompson closed it out with a 1-2-3 7th.

The only run of the game came in the 3rd, as Bobby Boyd hit an RBI single that scored Trent Woodward. Boyd also stole his 18th base of the season.

Game 2: Clinton 6, Quad Cities 1

W- Kody Kerski (2-2)
L- Justin Ferrell (1-2)

QC home runs: None.

Well, the 2nd game of the doubleheader wasn't as kind to the River Bandits as they trailed 6-0 after the 4th and were held to just 1 hit.

That 1 hit belonged to Nick Tanielu, who singled in the 1st inning. Trent Woodward scored both runs on the day for the Bandits. He walked to lead off the 5th, advanced to 3rd on an error, and scored on an Alex Hernandez groundout.

Justin Ferrell allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits and walked 3 in 3 innings. Michael Freeman allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 3 innings, and Riley Ferrell struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 7th.

The series now shifts to Clinton for 2 games. Josh James will take on Pat Peterson tonight at 6:30.

Kingsport 6, Greeneville 4

W- Darwin Ramos (1-0)
L- Salvador Montaño (0-1)
S- Taylor Henry (2)

Greeneville home runs: Brauly Mejia (1, solo in 6th)

The Appy Astros were swept as they were buried by a Kingsport barrage in the early going. They made it close late, but... no cigar.

Aaron Mizell opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. He finished 3-4 and added a 2-run double to his ledger in the 5th inning. Brauly Mejia brought Greeneville even closer with his 1st homer of the year, but that was as close as they got to the K-Mets.

Salvador Montaño went 1.2 innings and had 2 inherited runners charged to him. He allowed a hit, walked 4, and struck out 3. Brandon Culbreth got the final out of the 2nd, but faced 5 batters in the 3rd and failed to retire any of them. He allowed 4 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits and walked 2. Juan Delis couldn't extract Culbreth from a predicament in the 3rd. He allowed a hit and struck out 2 in 2 innings. Albert Abreu pitched the final 4 innings and allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 3.

Greeneville is in Johnson City for the second leg of their roadtrip. In game 1, Erasmo Pinales will face Ronnie Williams at 7:00 Eastern.
