Fresno home runs: Tyler White (4, 2-run in 1st)

The Rainiers got a pair of runs in the late innings to take this one.

Aaron West was the first man out of the Grizzlies bullpen and allowed 3 hits in 1.1 innings. Reymin Guduan got the final two outs of the 6th and the first out of the 7th, retiring one via strikeout. Kevin Comer got the last two outs of the 7th, but the one run he allowed came on a homer from Tyler O'Neill that gave Tacoma the lead. He allowed one other hit and struck out 1. Dayan Diaz allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in the 8th.

CC home runs: Drew Ferguson (5, solo in 3rd)

The Cardinals got to Andrew Thome late to snatch the win in the first game of the twinbill.

In his Texas League debut, Alex Winkelman went 6 innings and allowed a run on 9 hits (all singles) and struck out 5. Thome allowed 2 runs on 5 hits (solo homer) and struck out 1 in 2 innings.

Drew Ferguson scored both of Corpus Christi's runs in game 1. He extended his hitting streak to 20 games with a solo homer in the 3rd inning. J.D. Davis hit an RBI single in the 5th inning to bring him in. Jamie Ritchie went 2-3.

Would the second game bear a more positive result?

Game 2: Corpus Christi 5, Springfield 2

W- Sean Stutzman (1-0)
L- Blake McKnight (1-4)

CC home runs: None.

Corpus got an excellent spot start from Yohan Ramirez as they earned the split in the nightcap

The one run that Ramirez allowed in his 4.2 innings was a solo homer from Alex Mejia in the 5th. He also allowed 2 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 8. Sean Stutzman took over for the final 2.1 innings, and he too allowed a solo homer; Oscar Mercado took him deep in the 7th. Stutzman allowed one other hit and struck out 3.

Trent Woodward opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. Garrett Stubbs chipped in with a 2-run single in the 2nd, and Ferguson delivered a 2-run single of his own in the 6th. Bobby Boyd went 3-3 with a couple of doubles and scored twice. Ferguson extended his hitting streak to 21 by finishing 2-3 and scoring twice. Stubbs went 2-4, and Jack Mayfield scored the other Corpus run.

The series concludes at 7:05 as Rogelio Armenteros takes on Dakota Hudson.

Buies Creek 8, Salem 3 in 5 innings

W- Sebastian Kessay (4-1)
L- Daniel McGrath (0-4)

BC home runs: Jake Rogers 2 (2, 8 season; solo in 2nd, solo in 5th)

This game was called due to lightning, which also wiped out the second game of the doubleheader. Fortunately for the Carolina Stros, they made it through 5 innings, so this game goes into the record books as a win.

Jason Martin ripped a triple in the 1st and scored the first run of the afternoon when Kyle Tucker beat a double play attempt. Little Tuck ended up scoring when Spencer Johnson got caught stealing 2nd and held out long enough for Tucker to scamper home.

Jake Rogers smacked his first homer of the day in the 2nd inning. Later in the frame, Randy César came through with the bases loaded, hitting a 2-run single. An error on the play allowed Myles Straw to score. Pat Porter hit an RBI single in the 3rd, and Rogers launched his second homer of the game in the 5th inning. He finished 3-3 on the evening while Straw went 2-2.

In his first appearance since coming off the DL, Franklin Perez allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits and struck out 3 in 2.1 innings. Sebastian Kessay allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 2.2 scoreless innings to get the win.

The Astros and Red Sox will conclude this series with a doubleheader. Game 1 starts at 1:00 Eastern.

Peoria 7, Quad Cities 4

W- Yeison Medina (1-0)
L- Carlos Sanabria (0-1)
S- Eric Carter (4)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos put up a crooked number in the 2nd to open the scoring, but the Chiefs hit back with 5 in the 5th to turn the tables.

Taylor Jones opened the scoring with an RBI double in the 2nd. One batter later, Osvaldo Duarte smacked a 2-run double. Marcos Almonte, who scored the first run of the evening, hit an RBI single in the 5th for one of his four hits on the night.

Carlos Sanabria went 4.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (3 inherited runners charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 4, and struck out 2. Forrest Whitley made his first relief appearance of the season and his first task was to get Sanabria out of a bases-loaded quagmire. Unfortunately, all three runners scored. Whitley went 2.2 innings and allowed a run of his own on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. Ronel Blanco pitched the final two innings and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Enoli Paredes gets the start as Quad Cities wraps up this series. He'll go up against Bryan Dobzanski at 6:35.
