The JetHawks fought back from a 7-1 deficit, but their comeback came up just short.

Sean McMullen put Lancaster on the board with a sac fly in the 3rd. J.D. Davis hit an RBI single in the 6th, and stretch time seemed to have reinvigorated the JetHawks as they put up 4 in the bottom of the 7th. Brian Holberton ripped a 2-run double and eventually scored on an error. Marc Wik scored on a wild pitch to make it a 1-run game. Holberton's 2 hits were both doubles, while James Ramsay finished 3-4 with a double and a run scored.

Austin Chrismon allowed 6 runs on 10 hits (2-run homer) and walked 2 in 4 innings. Steve Naemark was the first man out; he allowed a run on 2 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and fanned 4 in 4 innings. Troy Scribner allowed a hit and struck out 1 in the 9th.

Akeem Bostick will take the mound tonight. He'll face David Perez at 5:00 Pacific.

Quad Cities 2, Beloit 1

W- Dean Deetz (5-1, 9-3 season)
L- Kevin Johnson (2-7)
S- Angel Heredia (13)

QC home runs: None.

Dominatin' Dean Deetz was back at it once again for the Banditos.

He threw 6 shutout innings and allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 to extend his scoreless streak to 22.1 innings. Juan Robles allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 in 2 innings, and the Snappers spoiled the shutout when Jose Brizuela hit a solo homer off of Angel Heredia with 2 outs in the 9th. That was the only hit that he allowed, and he struck out 1.

Bobby Boyd hit a 1-out double in the 1st, stole 3rd (37), and scored the first run of the game on the errant throw down to 3rd. The other Quad Cities run came in the 4th as Bryan Muñiz ripped an RBI double. He and Kristian Trompiz (who also hit a double) had 2 hits apiece.

In the River Bandits' penultimate game of the regular season, Elieser Hernandez will start. He'll take on Brett Graves at 2.

Tri-City 11, Connecticut 4

W- Matt Bower (2-0, 4-1 season)
L- Oswaldo Castillo (1-3)

TC home runs: Johnny Sewald (1, solo in 1st)

The ValleyCats jumped out to a 3-0 lead, only to see the Tigers claw back to tie the game. No matter... they proceeded to bury Connecticut.

Johnny Sewald kicked things off with his first home run as a pro. Tri-City got 2 more runs in the opening frame as Brooks Marlow scored on an error following a Bobby Wernes single, and Dex McCall added an RBI single. In the 6th, Aaron Mizell got plunked with the bases loaded, Wernes drew a walk, and Marlow scored on another Tiger error. Marlow hit an RBI single in the 7th that was sandwiched in between a couple of 2-run doubles from Sewald and Wernes.

Sewald (HR, 3 RBI, 3 R, 2 BB), Marlow (2B, RBI, 3 R), and Wernes (2B, 3 RBI, R) all finished 2-4. Joining them in the 2-hit club for the evening was McCall, who reached in all 3 of his plate appearances, and Keach Ballard, who scored 2 runs.

Trent Thornton went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits and walked 1. Matt Bower was the first man out; he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (solo homer) and struck out 3. Zac Grotz allowed a hit and struck out 1 in 1.2 innings.

Alex Winkelman will get the start for the River Bandits this evening. First pitch is at 5:00 Eastern.

Greeneville 3, Kingsport 1 (Greeneville wins series 2-1)

W- Yhoan Acosta
L- Thomas McIlraith
S- Luis Ramirez

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros only had 3 hits and only scored in 1 inning, but that output was enough for them to move on to the Appalachian League championship series.

Connor Goedert opened the scoring with a 2-run double in the 6th, and he came around to score on an RBI single from Randy Cesar.

Yhoan Acosta had one of his finest outings as a pro as he allowed 3 hits and fanned 7 over 7 shutout innings. Joselo Pinales allowed a run on a hit in the 8th, and Luis Ramirez walked 1 in a scoreless 9th.

Greeneville will take on Princeton for all the marbles in the Appy League. The best-of-3 series begins tonight in Greeneville, and the other two games will be in Princeton on Monday and Tuesday.
