L- Brett Oberholtzer (7-4)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies managed to make it a 1-run game in the 9th, but they left the tying run on 1st to end the game.

Preston Tucker grounded into a force out to score Jonathan Villar in the 3rd, and Tyler Heineman hit an RBI groundout in the 9th inning. Tony Kemp finished 2-4.

Brett Oberholtzer allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits and struck out 7 in 6 innings, and Jake Buchanan allowed a run on 2 hits in 2 innings.

Corpus Christi 5, Midland 3

W- R.J. Alaniz (5-3)
L- Omar Duran (2-2)
S- Jandel Gustave (16)

CC home runs: Jack Mayfield (6, 13 season; 3-run in 8th)

Well, better late than never. The Hooks scored their 5 runs in the 8th inning, all driven in by the bottom third of the order, to snatch a win from the jaws of defeat.

A.J. Reed kicked off this rally by whacking a double. He advanced to 3rd on a Jon Kemmer single. Conrad Gregor and Alfredo Gonzalez followed with RBI singles, and Jack Mayfield delivered the biggest hit of the night as his 3-run homer put Corpus in the lead. Reed, Colin Moran, and Jio Mier all finished with 2 hits. All 3 of them hit a double.

R.J. Alaniz allowed 2 runs on 6 hits and walked 3 in 7 innings of work. Tyler Brunnemann was greeted rather rudely by Colin Walsh, who took him deep to begin the 8th. Brunnemann got 2 outs in the inning and allowed one other hit. Chris Cotton got the final out of the 8th, and Jandel Gustave worked around a hit to close out the game, striking out 1.

In game 3 of this series, Kyle Westwood will face Dillon Overton at 7:00.

Rancho Cucamonga 10, Lancaster 2

W- Trevor Oaks (1-0)
L- Keegan Yuhl (4-1, 5-1 season)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks were left to rue their missed opportunities as the Quakes ended up turning this game into a laugher late.

Ruben Castro hit an RBI single in the 5th, and James Ramsay hit an RBI double in the 9th inning. Brian Holberton (3B, R), Chase McDonald, and J.D. Davis (2B) had 2 hits apiece.

Keegan Yuhl got roughed up for the first time this season as he allowed 3 runs on 7 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 5 in 4 innings. Jordan Mills allowed a hit, walked 4, and struck out 1 in 1.2 innings. Ryan Thompson's first task in the California League was to extract Mills from a bases-loaded predicament, and he did just that. He went 1.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits. Andrew Walter allowed 5 runs on 3 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 1 in 1.2 innings.

David Paulino will face Scott Barlow in the series finale. First pitch is at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities 6, Clinton 3

W- Agapito Barrios (2-1)
L- Lukas Schiraldi (4-12)
S- Angel Heredia (10)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos took the series as they doubled up the LumberKings.

Quad Cities scored 3 in the bottom of the 1st to take control. Drew Ferguson scored on a wild pitch while Nick Tanielu stole 2nd, and Jason Martin hit a 2-run single. Ferguson then ripped an RBI triple in the 2nd. Ferguson, who ended up going 3-4 with 2 runs scored, added an RBI single to his ledger in the 4th, stole 2nd (6, 7 season), and scored on a Nick Tanielu single.

Agapito Barrios went 5 and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 4. Steve Naemark allowed a hit and walked 1 over 2 scoreless, and Angel Heredia allowed a hit and struck out 2 as he got the 2-inning save.

Thomas Eshelman will make his 2nd start for the River Bandits tonight as they're getting set to host Peoria for 3. He'll take on Dewin Perez at 7.

Connecticut 3, Tri-City 1

W- Jordan Smith (2-1)
L- Yeyfry Del Rosario (3-3)
S- Jake Shull (6)

TC home runs: None.

The ValleyCats were foiled in their bid to sweep the series as the Tigers held them to 3 hits and scored the game's final 3 runs.

Anthony Hermelyn clubbed an RBI double in the 2nd to open the scoring.

Trent Thornton allowed 3 hits and struck out 1 in 3 innings. Scott Weathersby was the first man out, and the only run he allowed in his 2.1 innings came in the form of a solo homer hit by Patrick Mackenzie in the 6th inning. Weathersby allowed 3 hits and struck out 3. Yeyfry Del Rosario allowed 2 runs on 5 hits and fanned 2 in 1.2 innings, and Juan Carlos Santos allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless innings.

The ValleyCats' penultimate roadtrip of the season takes them to Vermont for 3 games. In game 1, Alex Winkelman will face Corey Miller. First pitch is at 7:05 Eastern.

Kingsport 1, Greeneville 0

W- Erik Manoah (1-3)
L- Yhoan Acosta (1-3)
S- Wilt Haggard (3)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros missed a huge opportunityto help themselves. Fortunately, Elizabethton also lost, so they are still tied with the Twins for 2nd place.

Greeneville only managed a single from Luis Payano, and a single from Gabriel Bracamonte (I always want to type Javier for some reason, even though they're not related).

Yhoan Acosta had a fine outing, but without any run support, he could only take a loss. He allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 8 in 5 innings. Makay Nelson and Joselo Pinales both pitched 2 scoreless innings; Nelson allowed 3 hits and fanned 1, while Pinales allowed 2 hits and struck out 1.

Greeneville will close out the regular season on the road. First up is 3 in Burlington. Albert Abreu will face Igol Feliz at 7:00 Eastern.

GCL Yankees2 3, GCL Astros 1

W- Jordan Ovalles (2-4)
L- Michel Martinez (0-1, 4-3 season)
S- Omar Luis (1)

GCL home runs: None.

The Kissimmee Stros could only muster up a single run in this one.

That run came in the 1st off of a Connor MacDonald single. Marcos Almonte and Jonathan Matute had 2 hits apiece.

Michel Martinez went 3 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 4, and fanned 2. Enrique Chavez was excellent in relief as he allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 5 innings. Abdiel Saldaña allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 2 in the 9th.

DSL Astros Blue 5, DSL Rangers1 3

W- Cristian Javier
L- Pedro Brito
S- Felipe Tejada

Blue home runs: Ronny Jimenez (1st of playoffs; 2-run in 1st)

The Blue team stormed out of the gate with 5 in the 1st and they were able to hold that lead.

Andy Piñeda led off the game with a triple and scored the first run of the day on an RBI single from Ozziel Sanchez-Galan. Sanchez-Galan made his way to 3rd on a walk and a wild pitch, then scored on a Cristopher Luciano single. Reiny Beltre, who drew the walk, scored when Edgar Lorenzo grounded into a double play. That still left Luciano on base for Ronny Jimenez, who ripped a 2-run homer. Piñeda and Jimenez both finished with 2 hits apiece.

Cristian Javier allowed 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3 over 5 shutout frames. Framber Valdez was the first man out; he went 2.1 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Felipe Tejada allowed an unearned run on 1 hit and fanned 3 in 1.2 innings.
