Results for Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Colorado Springs 8, Fresno 5

W- Hiram Burgos (2-2)
L- Casey Coleman (1-1)
S- Michael Blazek (2)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies were swept out of Colorado Springs. This is the second time that Fresno has been swept in a series this season and both have come on the road.

Tyler White scored the first run of the day on an error that allowed Juan Centeno to reach in the 2nd inning. Later in the frame, Andrew Aplin drew a bases-loaded walk. In the 6th, Centeno scored on an error that allowed Aplin to reach; Aplin was credited with an RBI on the play. D.J. Fisher extended his hitting streak to 14 games with an RBI single, and Preston Tucker hit a sac fly to bring the Grizzlies to within one run.

White and Max Stassi both finished 2-5. Centeno also extended his hitting streak to 12 games on Tuesday.

Casey Coleman pitched 4.2 innings and allowed 6 runs (5 earned) on 8 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7. Aaron West got the final out of the 5th and the first out of the 6th; he allowed 2 runs, both of which were inherited runners that were charged to him, a hit, and walked 2. Ashur Tolliver and Dayan Diaz both pitched 1.1 innings; Tolliver allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 1, while Diaz issued a couple of walks.

The Grizzlies have Wednesday off. They'll begin a 4-game series in Oklahoma City on Thursday.

San Antonio 6, Corpus Christi 4 in 10 innings

W- Trey Wingenter (2-0)
L- Cy Sneed (1-3)
S- Adam Cimber (1)

CC home runs: Bobby Boyd (1, solo in 1st), Jon Singleton (4, solo in 2nd)

The Rockets weren't the only Houston-affiliated team to lose to a San Antonio team last night.... and now I'm mad again. Excuse me while I try to cool down a bit.

The Hooks were swept for the second straight series, extending their losing streak to 8 games. They managed to tie this game with a run in the 9th.... only to see the Missions score a pair in the first extra frame to regain control. Yeah, bad things tend to occur during prolonged runs of poor form.

Brock Dykxhoorn went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Cy Sneed tagged in for 4.2 innings and allowed 4 runs (2 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 6 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. Jacob Dorris recorded the final out of the 10th, but an error that turned out to be the decisive play allowed the two go-ahead runs to score for San Antonio.

Bobby Boyd got the scoring started with a homer to lead off the bottom of the 1st. Jon Singleton led off the 2nd with a solo blast and scored on an error that allowed Kristian Trompiz to reach in the 4th. Alejandro Garcia led off the bottom of the 9th with a triple and scored on a single from Trompiz, who then stole 2nd and advanced to 3rd on the errant throw down. Unfortunately, he was stranded 90 feet from home to end the inning. Corpus had one last-ditch rally attempt in the 10th as Garrett Stubbs walked and J.D. Davis singled, but they were both stranded to end the game.

Corpus also has Wednesday off. They'll welcome Midland to Whataburger Field for 4 games starting on Thursday.

Salem 6, Buies Creek 1

W- Travis Lakins (5-0)
L- Framber Valdez (0-2)

BC home runs: None.

Buies Creek's offense was shackled by Red Sox starter Travis Lakins, who held them to just 3 hits on the night.

Arturo Michelena led off the 6th with a double, advanced to 3rd thanks to an error on the play, and scored the Astros' only run on a Jason Martin groundout. Kyle Tucker doubled later in the inning but was left there to end the frame. Myles Straw singled and stole 2nd base in the 8th but he too was stranded to end that inning. Straw now has 8 stolen bases on the season.

Framber Valdez went 5 innings and allowed 4 runs on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 6. Yoanys Quiala pitched the final 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits while striking out 8.

Hector Perez will start game 2 of this series. He'll face former Aggie Matt Kent at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 7, Bowling Green 2

W- Carson LaRue (3-1)
L- J.D. Busfield (3-1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos removed any lingering doubts regarding the outcome of this game by tacking on 3 runs in the top of the 9th inning. Both teams scored one run in each of the innings which they scored until the River Bandits put up the only crooked number in the final frame.

Dustin Hunt pitched 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Abdiel Saldaña allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and fanned 1 in a scoreless 5th. Carson LaRue finished off the game by allowing 4 hits, walking 1, and striking out 1 over 4 scoreless.

Randy César's RBI single in the 1st scored Rodrigo Ayarza and put Quad Cities on the board first. In the 2nd, Ronnie Dawson doubled and scored on an error that allowed Chuckie Robinson to reach. Robinson ripped an RBI double in the 4th while Dawson added an RBI single to his ledger in the 6th.

Dawson led off the 9th inning with a single and Robinson joined him on the bases after lashing his 2nd double of the contest. Dawson scored on a sac fly from Carmen Benedetti and Robinson came home on Ayarza's second double of the game. César capped off the scoring the way he opened it: he hit an RBI single that drove in Ayarza.

Cionel Perez will take on Brock Burke in the series finale later this morning. This game will get underway at 10:35 AM.
