Salt Lake 7, Fresno 3

W- David Huff (2-3)
L- Brad Peacock (2-4)

Fresno home runs: Alex Bregman (2, 16 season; 3-run in 5th)

The Grizzlies were foiled in their bid to sweep the series because they fell into an early 7-0 hole.

Alex Bregman's 3-run home run in the 5th was Fresno's only scoring play.

Brad Peacock went 5 innings and allowed 7 runs on 10 hits (9 singles and a double), walked 2, and struck out 6. Reymin Guduan recorded 2 outs in the 6th, 1 via strikeout, and walked 3. Jordan Jankowski extracted him from a bases-loaded situation without incurring any damage. Jankowski ended up pitching 2 innings, walking 1 and fanning 3. Kevin Chapman issued a walk in the 8th but was able to get the final out of the inning.

Tonight, the Grizzlies return home to begin a 4-game series with Sacramento. César Valdez will face Adalberto Mejia at 6:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 12, Tulsa 6

W- Albert Minnis (1-0)
L- Scott Barlow (3-5)

CC home runs: Roberto Peña (6, solo in 2nd)

The Hooks provided some early fireworks as they jumped out to a 10-2 lead after 4 innings.

James Ramsay led off the bottom of the 1st with an infield single and advanced to 2nd on an error. He scored the first run of the evening on another Tulsa error following a Mott Hyde single. Conrad Gregor and Nick Tanielu grounded into force outs that allowed Hyde and D.J. Fisher to score. Roberto Peña led off the bottom of the 2nd with a home run, and Hyde later added an RBI single.

In the 4th, Gregor drew a bases-loaded walk, Tanielu smacked a 2-run double, and Danry Vásquez added a 2-run single. Tanielu scored on a double play in the 7th, and Gregor finished off the scoring with an RBI double in the 8th.

Everyone in the Corpus lineup had a hit; Danry led the way in that category by finishing 3-4. Tanielu (2B, 3 RBI, 2 R), J.D. Davis (2 R), Hyde (RBI, R), and Ramsay (2 R) all finished with 2 hits in the game.

Kent Emanuel went 4.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 7 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. Michael Freeman allowed 2 runs on 5 hits in an inning (final out of 5th, 2 outs in 6th). Albert Minnis allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 2 in 2.1 innings, and Ryan Thompson threw a 1-2-3 9th inning.

Edison Frias will start game 2 of this series. He'll take on Chase De Jong at 7:05.

Lake Elsinore 3, Lancaster 2

W- Walker Lockett (3-3)
L- Dean Deetz (4-4)
S- Colby Blueberg (11)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks had to settle for a split as they couldn't capitalize on a couple of massive opportunities in the late innings.

Keach Ballard hit an RBI groundout in the 2nd inning to open the scoring. However, the Storm responded with 3 in the bottom half of the inning. Jason Martin smacked an RBI triple with 1 out in the 7th inning, but he was left at 3rd in the end. Lancaster had the bases loaded in the top of the 9th, but again, they couldn't push any runs across. Ramon Laureano and Jason Martin (2B, 3B, RBI) had 2 hits apiece; the two of them had all 4 of Lancaster's hits in this game. Bryan Muñiz walked twice and scored both Lancaster runs.

Dean Deetz pitched 2 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned; all 3 runs scored in the 2nd inning), walked 3, and struck out 3. 2 of those runs scored on an error, and the other came on a sac fly. Gonzalo Sañudo and Scott Weathersby pitched 3 innings apiece; Sañudo allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and fanned 4, while Weathersby allowed 2 hits and struck out 3.

Akeem Bostick will be on the mound tonight as the JetHawks start a 4-game series with Visalia. First pitch is at 6:35 Pacific.

Kane County 2, Quad Cities 1

W- Austin Mason (1-0)
L- Adam Whitt (2-2)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos walked off with a loss in this game, and a loss in the series.

After 14 zeroes on the scoreboard, this game finally got its first run in the top of the 8th as Osvaldo Duarte tripled with 2 outs in the inning and trotted home on a single from Dex McCall. Duarte finished 2-3 and was the only player on either side to have a multi-hit game.

Albert Abreu dominated the Cougars as he allowed just 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5 over 8 shutout innings. However, Kane County got to Adam Whitt for the winning runs with 1 out in the 9th inning. Whitt recorded that one out with a strikeout.

Tonight, the River Bandits will begin a 4-game series with Beloit. Elieser Hernandez will take on Michael Murray at 6:00.

Tri-City 10, Hudson Valley 0

S- Enrique Chavez (1)

TC home runs: Stephen Wrenn (7, 2-run in 1st), Ryne Birk (1, solo in 3rd), Daz Cameron (2, 2-run in 6th)

The ValleyCats won this series from the Renegades by dominating them in all facets of the game.

They dominated the pitching aspect of baseball by not allowing any runs. Hector Perez allowed just 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6 over 5.2 shutout innings, and Enrique Chavez allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 over the final 3.1 innings to complete the shutout.

Tri-City dominated the offensive aspects of baseball by scoring 10 runs on 14 hits. Stephen Wrenn continued his rampage on New York-Penn League pitchers by opening the scoring with a 2-run home run in the 1st inning. Ryne Birk's first pro home run was a solo blast in the 3rd.

The ValleyCats scored 2 in the 4th, 5th, and the 6th: Brauly Mejia and Alex DeGoti hit RBI single in the 4th. Wrenn and Taylor Jones smacked RBI doubles in the 5th, and Daz Cameron whacked a 2-run homer in the 6th. Jones capped off Tri-City's dominant offensive showing with another RBI double in the 9th. Every position player who appeared for Tri-City had a hit, the three home run hitters and Jones' two doubles led the way. Rodrigo Ayarza, who subbed in for Birk at second base in the 7th, singled in his only plate appearance. Daz also stole his 8th base with Tri-City; he now has 12 stolen bases on the season.

Tonight, Tri-City will start a 3-game series with State College. Kevin Hill will start game 1, and he'll face Steven Farinaro at 6:30 Eastern.

An error in the 2nd inning allowed Jorge Martinez and Reiny Beltre to score the first runs of the day. Troy Sieber hit an RBI single in the 3rd inning. Andy Piñeda added an RBI single in the 6th, and Carlos Machado drove in the Kissimmee Stros' final run of game 1 with an RBI single in the 7th. Beltre and Machado both finished 2-4.
