While Dustin is temporarily out of action, here are some down and dirty results for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday ...

FRESNO GRIZZLIES

Sunday - Fresno over Albuquerque 9-1
A great start from Brett Oberholtzer in which he allowed only one run on a solo shot over eight innings while allowing eight hits, one walk and striking out four to earn the win. Tyson Perez tossed a perfect 9th. Tyler White was three-for-five with an RBI; Matt Duffy was two-for-three with two doubles and two RBI; and Max Stassi had a solo shot and collected two RBI.

Monday - Fresno over Albuquerque 6-0
Mike Hauschild got the win with a great start (8IP 5H 0BB 5SO) and Jake Buchanan pitched the 9th to preserve the shut out. Fresno was held to eight hits, two from Matt Duffy (including a solo home run) and two from Andrew Aplin. Tony Kemp had two RBI with a double.

Tuesday - Fresno over Albuquerque 4-1
Brady Rodgers was the latest in a string of great starting pitching for Fresno (7IP 1BB 6SO). In relief, Jordan Jankowski worked around two hits in his one inning of work and James Hoyt allowed the only Isotopes run. Fresno was held to six hits with Robbie Grossman collecting two of them. Andrew Aplin had two RBI for the night.

CORPUS CHRISTI HOOKS

Sunday - Corpus Christi over Midland 9-4
Brian Holmes got the win despite not having his best start (5.2 8H 4R/3ER 1BB 5SO 1HR) and was picked up by solid relief from Juan Minaya and Jandel Gustave. Colin Moran was the offensive man of the day, going two-for-four and collecting a double, home run and three RBI.

Monday - Corpus Christi over San Antonio 4-2 in 10 innings
Michael Feliz went seven scoreless, allowing four hits, two walks and five strikeouts. Juan Minaya and Jandel Gustave each allowed a run in relief, and Aaron West earned his 4th save with a perfect 10th. A.J. Reed collected two RBI, including the go-ahead run on a force out. Teoscar Hernandez, Colin Moran and Chan Moon each had two hits, and Hernandez scored an insurance run with a steal of home in the 10th.

Tuesday - Corpus Christi over San Antonio 10-4
R.J. Alaniz collected his fourth win of the season despite allowing four runs (three earned) over five innings.

Chan Moon and Jio Mier each had three hits; Jon Kemmer had a double and drove in three; Conrad Gregor drove in two with a home run and Colin Moran (2B HR) added a solo shot; Teoscar Hernandez and A.J. Reed (2RBI) also had doubles.

LANCASTER JETHAWKS

Sunday - High Desert over Lancaster 13-4
Akeem Bostick did not enjoy pitching at High Desert. He only lasted 1.2 innings and was charged with eight hits, nine runs (six earned), one walk, three strikeouts and two throwing errors. Albert Minnis, Bryan Radziewski and Tyler Brunnemann had mop up duty with mixed results. Chase McDonald's three-run home run was the offensive highlight.

Monday - Bakersfield over Lancaster 9-5
Christian Powell was greeted incredibly rudely in his High A debut, allowing seven runs in 2.1 innings. Troy Scribner added 2.2 scoreless innings of relief, but Keegan Yuhl allowed another couple of runs across in his four innings. Alex Bregman went three-for-five with a triple; Ronnie Mitchell (2B) and Marc Wik (2B 2RBI) had two hits apiece; and Chase McDonald contributed a solo home run to the effort.

Tuesday - Lancaster over Bakersfield 10-2
Lancaster ended their five-game losing streak with help from a solid start by Francis Martes (6.1IP 4H 2R 2BB 10SO). Andrew Walter tagged in with 2.2 scoreless and added six strikeouts of his own. James Ramsay (3x4 HR RBI BB 2R)  and J.D. Davis (2B HR 3RBI 2R) led the offense. Chase McDonald contributed a two-run home run and Ronnie Mitchell drove in two as well.

QUAD CITIES RIVER BANDITS

Sunday - Quad Cities over Wisconsin 6-1
Brock Dykxhoorn got the win with a very strong outing (5IP 1H 1BB 8SO). Brandon McNitt and Ryan Thompson kept the shut out intact, but Angel Heredia allowed Wisconsin's lone run in the 9th. Jose Fernandez collected a two-run home run and Jason Martin drove in two as well.

Monday - Off Day

Tuesday - Quad Cities over Bowling Green 3-0
Justin Ferrell (7.2IP 4H 3BB 5SO) and Eric Peterson (1.1IP 3SO) combined in this great 4-hit shut out. The River Bandits only had eight hits, but made them count. Bobby Boyd had the only multi-hit game with two hits. Nick Tanielu's double was the only extra base hit. Ryan Bottger and Luis Reynoso each collected an RBI single in the seventh. Reynoso scored the first run in the third on a passed ball.

TRI-CITY VALLEYCATS

Sunday - Tri-City over Mahoning Valley 10-4
Chris Murphy had a good start, but Zac Grotz earned the win in relief. Ryan Deemes struggled, allowing four runs in his first appearance with the ValleyCats. Juan Santos nailed it down with a perfect 9th. Johnny Sewald and Hector Roa each collected three hits and Cesar Carrasco contributed a solo home run. Everyone in the line-up got at least one hit except Antonio Nunez. Dex McCall, Aaron Mizell and Brooks Marlow each had two RBI.

Monday - Tri-City over Hudson Valley 6-5
Scott Weathersby got the start and allowed one unearned run in four innings while striking out four. Trent Thornton earned the win despite allowing two runs over 3.2 innings. Adam Whitt allowed the final two runs across in his inning of work. Jacob Dorris earned his second save with a timely strikeout. Brooks Marlow was three-for-four with an RBI, but Anthony Hermelyn's three-run home run was the difference maker.

Tuesday - Tri-City over Hudson Valley 1-0
PITCHERS' DUEL!!! Rogelio Armenteros (4IP 1H 3BB 3SO), David Schmidt (1IP 1H 1SO), Alex Winkleman (3IP 2H 2BB 4SO), and Zac Grotz (1IP 1SO) combined in this 4-hit shut out with Winkleman getting his fourth win and Grotz his second save. This one could certainly have gone the other way with the 'Cats only collecting THREE hits. It came down to Aaron Mizell taking base in the 9th after being hit by a pitch, advancing to second on a Pat Porter groundout and scoring on a Hector Roa single. Antonio Nunez and Brooks Marlow (2B) collected the only other Tri-City hits.

GREENEVILLE ASTROS

Sunday - Kingsport over Greeneville 6-1
Andrew Thome allowed two unearned runs over three innings and was charged with the loss. Samil de los Santos was the only relief pitcher who emerged unscathed, pitching two perfect innings. Osvaldo Duarte was two-for-four with a double and Daz Cameron collected the sole RBI for Greeneville.

Monday - Off Day

Tuesday - Bluefield over Greeneville 3-2
Yhoan allowed two runs (on a home run) on four hits in five innings. He walked one and struck out eight. Greeneville tied things up in the top of the ninth, but Jose Hernandez was charged with the loss after allowing three singles and a walk-off run in the bottom of the frame. Greeneville was held to four hits. Connor Goedert was two-for-three with a walk and scored both Greeneville runs.

Tuesday - Two 7-inning games to make up for Monday's rainout.

Game 2 - GCL Astros over GCL Yankees 1 2-1
Starter Carlos Sanabria allowed the sole Yankees run, while Junior Garcia, Hector Perez and Luis Ramirez provided four scoreless innings of relief. The Astros only had four hits in this game; Nestor Tejada had two of them. Frankeny Fernandez and Bryan de la Cruz each had an RBI.
