Results for Sunday, May 17, 2017

Oklahoma City 14, Fresno 5

W- Trevor Oaks (1-1)
L- Francis Martes (0-1)

Fresno home runs: Colin Moran (4, solo in 2nd)

The Dodgers jumped out to a 5-1 lead after the 3rd and then buried the Grizzlies with 5 runs in the 6th and 4 more in the 8th.

Colin Moran put Fresno on the board with a solo homer in the 2nd that tied the game at 1. The game wouldn't be tied for long because OKC scored a pair in the bottom of the 2nd to regain control. Tony Kemp doubled to lead off the 6th and scored on a D.J. Fisher double. Kemp hit an RBI double in the 7th and an RBI single in the 9th. Jon Kemmer added a sac fly later in the 9th. Kemp finished 5-5 with 3 doubles; he had half of the Grizzlies' 10 hits.

Francis Martes only went 3 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 4, and struck out 3. Brian Holmes was the first man out of the Fresno bullpen and allowed 3 runs, all of which were inherited runners charged to him. He also allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 2.1 innings. Ashur Tolliver was next; he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and walked 2 in 1.2 innings. Aaron West allowed 4 runs on 6 hits in the 8th.

The Grizzlies return home to start a 4-game series with Nashville. Casey Coleman takes on Chris Bassitt at 6:35 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 4, Midland 0

W- Cy Sneed (2-3)
L- James Naile (1-1)
S- Jacob Dorris (2)

CC home runs: Jon Singleton (6, 2-run in 6th)

Both teams recorded 8 hits in this game... only one of them scored. The Hooks battled back in this series; first, they ended a 10-game losing streak on Saturday and then they earned the split with a shutout win on Mother's Day.

Cy Sneed and two relievers combined on the shutout: Sneed allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 9 in 5.1 innings of work. Mike Freeman was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen; he came on after Sneed got into a jam in the 6th got the final two outs of the frame without incident. He got the first out of the 7th but was pulled after allowing a couple of hits soon after. Jacob Dorris got him out of the predicament without incident; Dorris went on to throw 2.2 innings, allowing 3 hits and fanning 4 to earn the save.

J.D. Davis drew a two-out walk in the bottom of the 1st, advanced to 3rd on a Jon Singleton single, and scored the first run of the day on a passed ball. Singleton whacked a 2-run homer in the 6th and Garrett Stubbs capped off the afternoon with an RBI single. Singleton and Ramon Laureano both finished with two hits on the day.

The Hooks are heading up I-37 to start a series with San Antonio. First pitch is at 7:05.

Down East 10, Buies Creek 6

W- Ricardo Rodriguez (3-1)
L- Patrick Sandoval (0-1)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros were foiled in their bid to sweep the series after the Wood Ducks scored 5 in the bottom of the 9th, the last 4 of which came on a grand slam.

Ryne Birk has scuffled badly after a pretty good start, so he's looking to get himself back on track. A 4-5, 3 RBI performance is a solid rebound. He opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 4th inning. Jason Martin hit into a fielder's choice that scored Osvaldo Duarte in the 5th.

Arturo Michelena led off the 7th with a double and came around to score on a single from Anthony Hermelyn. Before Hermelyn's single, Kyle Tucker got plunked. Little Tuck stole 3rd, then Pat Porter drew a walk to load the bases for Birk, who came through with a 2-run single. Myles Straw tripled to lead off the 9th and scored when Tucker grounded out. Porter, Straw (3B, R), and Dex McCall all finished with 2 hits on the day.

Yoanys Quiala went 5.1 innings and allowed 4 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Patrick Sandoval made his season debut and allowed 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. The first two batters of the 9th reached against Sandoval, which prompted Carlos Sierra to enter the game. Sierra got an out on a sacrifice bunt, then issued an intentional walk and another walk that tied the game. The Wood Ducks won the game thanks to a walk-off grand slam from Josh Morgan, which was the only hit he allowed.

Framber Valdez will start the first game of a 4-game set in Myrtle Beach. He'll take on Ryan Kellogg at 7:05 Eastern.

Quad Cities was off

The Banditos are back home and they will begin a 3-game series with Burlington at 11:00 AM. Carson LaRue will get the start.
