Results for Tuesday, June 20, 2017

El Paso 11, Fresno 7 in 10 innings

W- Logan Bawcom (1-3)
L- Reymin Guduan (4-4)

Fresno home runs: Jon Kemmer (9, 2-run in 2nd), Max Stassi (7, 3-run in 4th), Colin Moran (16, 2-run in 8th)

Colin Moran tied the game with his 2-run shot in the 8th... but the Chihuahuas went off for 4 in the first extra frame to regain control of the game.

All 7 Fresno runs came on the three home runs they launched on Tuesday; Jon Kemmer put them on the board with his 2-run homer in the 2nd. Max Stassi clubbed a 3-run shot in the 4th, and as mentioned above, Moran smacked a 2-run homer in the 8th to tie the game at 7. Teoscar Hernandez finished 3-5 with a stolen base (9) and scored a run; he's got a nice little 6-game hitting streak going. Kemmer (2-R HR, 2 R) and Preston Tucker (2B, R) had 2 hits apiece.

Kyle Smith went 4 innings and allowed 6 runs on 7 hits (2-run homer) and struck out 5. Tyson Perez allowed a run on a solo homer, two other hits, and struck out 1 in the 5th. Brendan McCurry worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 6th, striking out 1. Kevin Comer followed with 2 scoreless out of the bullpen, allowing a hit and fanning 1. Reymin Guduan pitched a scoreless 9th, but El Paso got to him and Jordan Jankowski in the 10th. In 1.1 innings, Guduan allowed 2 runs, both of which were inherited runners charged to him, on 3 hits and struck out 1. Jankowski got the last 2 outs of the 10th, but not before he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits (3-run homer; 1 run charged to Guduan).

Fresno has today off. They'll start a 4-game series with Sacramento on Thursday at 7:05 Pacific as Trent Thornton takes on Andrew Suarez.

Corpus Christi 6, San Antonio 1

W- Cy Sneed (6-4)
L- Charles Nading (0-2)

CC home runs: Kyle Tucker (4, 13 season; solo in 6th), Jon Singleton (12, 2-run in 8th)

Corpus erupted for 5 in the 8th to break a 1-1 tie; they scored the last 6 runs of this game.

Kyle Tucker put the Hooks on the board with a solo blast in the 6th inning and in the lead with a 2-run double in the 8th. Little Tuck then advanced to 3rd on a wild pitch and scored on a J.D. Davis single. One batter later, Jon Singleton launched a 2-run homer. Tucker (2B, solo HR, 3 RBI, 2 R) and Jack Mayfield both finished 2-4 on the evening.

Josh James didn't get any run support, but that didn't prevent him from turning in an excellent outing; he went 5 innings and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7. The Missions' only run came in the 1st inning, so he and Cy Sneed shut them out for 8 innings. Speaking of Cy Sneed, he went 4 innings and allowed a hit, walked 3, and struck out 4.

Kent Emanuel will start the series finale. He'll face Michael Kelly at 7:05.

W- Willians Vasquez (1-1)

W- Jose Alberto Rivera (1-0)
L- Daritzon Feliz (0-3)

Orange home runs: None.

Team Orange led 5-0 after 2 innings and coasted to the win.

Jose Alberto Rivera struck out 3 in 5 innings; the one baserunner he allowed was the result of an error he committed. Freylin Garcia and Christian Mejias pitched 2 innings apiece; Garcia allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 1, while Mejias allowed 2 hits and fanned 2.

Deury Carrasco doubled to lead off the 1st. He advanced to 3rd on a Freudis Nova single and scored the first run of the day when Euclides Chavez grounded out. Jose Carrillo followed with an RBI single to score Nova and Jose Alvarez also singled. They both scored when Jeury Castillo ripped a double. Carrillo hit another RBI single in the 2nd; Nova also scored on that play. In the 5th, Carrillo got plunked and scored on an error that allowed Jeury to reach.
