The upper-level affiliates all won, while it was a tough night for the A teams.
Fresno 4, Las Vegas 3
W- Mike Hauschild (1-1)
L- Stolmy Pimentel (0-2)
S- Jordan Jankowski (1)
Fresno home runs: A.J. Reed (3, 2-run in 1st)
The Grizz earned the split behind a solid outing from Mike Hauschild.
Hauschild went 7 innings and allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 7. Edwar Cabrera came on for the 8th and got into a pickle while only recording 1 out. Cabrera ended up loading the bases with 3 walks, and then allowed a 2-run single. Jordan Jankowski came on to put out the fire, which he did. Jankowski, who got a 5-out save, allowed a hit and a walk in the 9th, but nothing came of that; inducing a double play helped him close it out.
A.J. Reed drove in 3 of Fresno's 4 runs; he opened up the scoring with a 2-run shot in the 1st and added a sac fly to his ledger in the 7th. Danny Worth went 3-3 and ripped an RBI double in the 3rd.
Tonight, Fresno will kick off a 4-game series with Salt Lake. Tommy Shirley gets the nod in game 1; he'll take on Zach Nuding at 6:35 Pacific.
Corpus Christi 6, Springfield 0
W- Cy Sneed (1-0)
L- Mike Mayers (1-1)
S- Edison Frias (1)
CC home runs: Teoscar Hernandez (1, 3-run in 7th)
The Hooks got a measure of revenge on the Cardinals by taking this series after Springfield took 2 of 3 in Corpus last week.
Cy Sneed and Edison Frias joined forces for a shutout in this game. Sneed allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 5 innings of work, while Frias pitched the final 4 frames, allowing 4 hits, walking 1, and striking out 7.
Alex Bregman opened up the scoring by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the 2nd. This would be the only run of the game until Teoscar Hernandez smacked a 3-run shot in the 7th to provide a little more breathing room. Ronnie Mitchell added an RBI single in the 8th, and Conrad Gregor capped off the scoring with an RBI triple in the 9th.
Bregman drew 2 walks and stole a base (2). J.D. Davis went 2-4 with a double and scored a run, and Mott Hyde finished 3-4 with 2 runs scored at the bottom of the order.
The Hooks will look for the sweep today, and they're set to get underway in a little bit. Keegan Yuhl will be on the mound, and he'll take on Trey Nielsen. First pitch is at 11:10.
