Preston Tucker's 2-run homer in the 1st constituted the only Fresno runs. It was also their only extra-base hit of the afternoon,

Jon Kemmer scored the first run of the game when Conrad Gregor grounded into a force out in the 2nd inning. Colin Moran broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI single in the 8th inning. Kemmer and Moran had 2 hits apiece.

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis 2 (26; solo in 3rd, 2-run in 8th)

J.D. Davis was the 3rd player in the system to join the 100-RBI club with his 6 RBI.

Mills walked 1 and struck out 1 in the 7th, Chavez, making his Lancaster debut, allowed a hit and struck out 1 in the 8th, and Andrew Walter allowed a solo homer to Daniel Bravo in the 9th. He allowed one other hit and fanned 1.

Quad Cities 2, Burlington 1

W- Brock Dykxhoorn (8-4)
L- Mike Bolaski (9-11)
S- Angel Heredia (12)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos were held to 4 hits, but they won in the column that counts.

Wander Franco hit a sac fly in the 2nd to open the scoring. In the 8th, Bobby Boyd hit a triple with 2 outs and ended up breaking a 1-1 tie by scoring on a wild pitch. Boyd's triple was the River Bandits' only extra-base hit.

Brock Dykxhoorn went 7 innings and allowed a run on 6 hits and struck out 3. Zach Davis allowed a hit and struck out 1 as he got 2 outs in the 7th. Angel Heredia struck out 1 and got a 4-out save.

In game 2 of this series, Dean Deetz will take on Keynan Middleton. First pitch is at 6:30.

Tri-City 13, Brooklyn 4

W- Kevin McCanna (3-2)
L- Kevin Canelon (5-5)

TC home runs: Cesar Carrasco (4, 2-run in 2nd), Aaron Mizell (4, solo in 3rd), Anthony Hermelyn (2, 2-run in 4th), Hector Roa (5, 11 season; 2-run in 4th)

Tri-City brought out the big guns as they bashed 4 homers in the span of 3 innings.

Hector Roa opened the scoring with an RBI groundout in the 1st. Then came the homers. Carrasco launched one in the 2nd. Aaron Mizell followed with a solo shot in the 3rd, and in the 4th, Anthony Hermelyn and Roa both smacked 2-run homers. They scored 4 more runs in the 6th as Brooks Marlow hit a sac fly, and Roa, Bobby Wernes, and Kolbey Carpenter hit RBI singles. Dex McCall drove in the final run of the evening when he drew a bases-loaded walk in the 8th. That 8th inning got a bit testy as Roa got plunked. I have no idea what happened afterwards, but I imagine that words were exchanged, and Juan Carlos Santos and two Brooklyn players ended up getting tossed.

Johnny Sewald (SB [28], 2 R), Roa (2-run homer, 4 RBI), Mizell (solo homer, 2 R), McCall (2B, RBI, 2 R), and Carrasco (2B, 2-run homer, 2 R) all had 2-hit nights.

Zac Person allowed 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 3 hits and struck out 6 in 3.1 innings. Kevin McCanna allowed a 3-run homer to Zach Mathieu in the 4th, and 2 runs were charged to Person. In 3.2 innings, McCanna allowed one other hit and struck out 1. Ralph Garza Jr. allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 in 2 innings.

In game 2 of this series, Trent Thornton will take on Gaby Almonte. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Greeneville 6, Princeton 2

W- Andrew Thome (2-1)
L- Bryan Bonnell (2-1)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros sit 1.5 games ahead of Elizabethton with 2 games remaining. It's coming down to the wire.

Andrew Thome was excellent in his 5 innings as he allowed 2 hits and struck out 6. Cris Santamaria allowed a run and a hit in 3 innings, and Dylan James allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and struck out 1 in the 9th.

Kyle Tucker opened the scoring with a sac fly in the 1st, and Arturo Michelena added an RBI single. Greeneville got 3 runs in the 5th without a hit. Ford Stainback and Myles Straw scored on wild pitches, and Christian Correa scored on an error that allowed Straw to reach. That was the only ball that they put in play in that entire inning. Tucker hit an RBI single in the 8th inning. Daz Cameron stole 2 bases, giving him 24 on the season. Stainback (3), Straw (21), and Tucker (11, 15 season) also stole a base.

In game 2 of this series, Makay Nelson will take on Alexis Tapia. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern. The mission is simple: win, and they're in.
