The Hooks saw an opportunity to walk off with a win fall by the wayside. On the other hand, the RockHounds got to Eric Peterson for 3 runs in the first extra frame.

All three of Corpus Christi's runs came in the 3rd inning as Mott Hyde hit an RBI single to put them on the board. Hyde and J.D. Davis proceeded to pull off a double steal; Davis swiped home, and Hyde scored on a Trent Woodward single. Bryan Muñiz finished 3-4 with two doubles; he singled to lead off the 9th and Tyler Wolfe came on to pinch-run for him. Wolfe advanced to 2nd on a sac bunt but was thrown out trying to score the winning run on a Bobby Boyd single. Boyd advanced to 2nd on the throw home but was stranded to end the inning.

Clinton 10, Quad Cities 5

W- Ljay Newsome (4-1)
L- Cionel Perez (0-1)
S- Ronald Dominguez (2)

QC home runs: None.

Cionel Perez got a rather rude welcome to American professional baseball. The LumberKings only scored in two innings, but they scored 9 in the 3rd, which ended Cionel's night rather early.

Cionel allowed 7 runs (6 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 2.2 innings. Salvador Montaño was also making his season debut; he was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits (2-run homer; one run was charged to Perez), walked 3, and struck out 3 in 1.1 innings. Brett Adcock pitched the last 4 innings and allowed an unearned run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4.

Taylor Jones put Quad Cities on the board with a 2-run double in the 5th. The Banditos got 3 in the 7th as Randy César scored on a passed ball following a Daz Cameron strikeout. Daz reached safely and came around to score on a 2-run double from Carmen Benedetti. César finished 2-4 and was the only player in the Quad Cities lineup with a multi-hit game.

Forrest Whitley makes his second appearance of the season at 6:30. He'll face Danny Garcia.
