The Hooks used a 5-run 5th to spur them on to a win.

L- David Perez (4-3)
S- Jordan Mills (2, 4 season)

Lancaster home runs: Chase McDonald (29, 3-run in 8th)

Akeem Bostick turned in his best outing of the season, and Chase McDonald's homer was well-timed.

Bostick allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out a career-high 9 over 8 innings. Enrique Chavez got 2 outs in the 9th with a double play, but he also allowed 3 hits. He left 2 runners on for Jordan Mills, who got Isiah Kiner-Falefa to fly out to James Ramsay for the final out.

Mott Hyde opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 2nd inning. J.D. Davis scored when McDonald grounded into a force out in the 6th, and with the JetHawks holding on to a 1-run lead in the 8th, McDonald smacked a 3-run homer. Hyde finished 3-4 with a double and a run scored.

On this final day of the regular season, Christian Powell will start for Lancaster. He'll face Dallas Gallant at 5:00 Pacific.

L- Brett Graves (12-8)

QC home runs: Nick Tanielu (6, solo in 1st), Ramon Laureano (4, solo in 6th), Luis Reynoso (1, 3-run in 6th)

The Banditos doled out a beatdown as everyone in the lineup got involved in a 19-hit assault.

Everyone who appeared in the game got a hit. Wander Franco, who came on as a defensive replacement for Nick Tanielu in the 6th, was the only River Bandit to not score a run. Everyone in the starting 9+1 did score.


Elieser Hernandez went 5.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 6. Zach Davis was the first man out; he went 2.1 innings and allowed a hit while striking out 5. Eric Peterson allowed 2 hits in a scoreless 9th.

Connecticut 9, Tri-City 4

W- Ryan Milton (2-0)
L- Alex Winkelman (5-1, 7-2 season)

TC home runs: None.

The Tigers took control of this game thanks to a 5-run 5th inning.

Alex Winkelman went 4.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Adam Whitt was the first man out; he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits in 1.1 innings. David Schmidt went 2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1, and Juan Carlos Santos allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and fanned 1 in the 9th.

In the final game of the regular season, Jose Luis Hernandez will take on Toller Boardman. First pitch is at 5:00 Eastern.

Princeton 12, Greeneville 2 (Princeton leads 1-0)

W- Spencer Moran
L- Albert Abreu

Greeneville home runs: None.

Well, that was a brutal beginning to the Appy League championship series for the Appy Astros. They'll have to win twice in Princeton now.

The pitching staff struggled mightily, and I will leave it at that. Cris Santamaria, who was the 4th pitcher to appear, was the only Greeneville hurler with a scoreless appearance as he allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 over 3 innings.

Kyle Tucker, Christian Correa, and Randy Cesar all finished with 2 hits in this game. Both Appy Astros runs came in the 6th as Tucker scored on a Brauly Mejia groundout and Cesar scored on a wild pitch.

Salvador Montaño will get the start tonight. He'll face Blake Bivens at 7:00 Eastern.
