Tri-City smacked four homers, but a disastrous top of the 7th condemned them to defeat on Sunday.

Both teams scored a run in the 1st inning; Tri-City got theirs on Corey Julks' first pro homer. Abraham Toro-Hernandez whacked a 2-run homer in the 3rd and launched a 3-run blast in the 5th inning. In the 6th, Reid Russell scored on Julks' grounder and one batter later, Kyle Davis got a hold of one and sent it out for a 2-run homer.

Both of Toro's hits left the yard. J.J. Matijevic went 3-5 and scored a run in his pro debut. Davis (2-R HR) and Jake Adams (2 R) also finished with 2 hits on the night.

Carlos Hiraldo went 4 innings and allowed 5 runs on 8 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 3. Diogenes Almengo went 2.2 innings. He did not allow a hit and struck out 1. However, he also allowed 5 runs (3 inherited runners charged to him) and walked 8. Humberto Castellanos allowed a hit and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings. Castellanos technically had a scoreless appearance, but all 3 runners he inherited from Almengo scored.

The ValleyCats will look to avoid the sweep at 7:00 Eastern.

Greeneville 11, Bristol 4

W- Hansel Paulino (1-0)
L- Argenis Romano (0-2)

Greeneville home runs: Cody Bohanek (1, solo in 6th)

The Appy Astros came alive in the late stages of the game, scoring 9 of their 11 runs in the final two frames.

The 2 runs Adam Bleday allowed in his 2 innings came on a homer hit by Edison Lantigua in the 1st inning. Bleday allowed one other hit, walked 1, and struck out 3. Tim Hardy got the first two outs of the 3rd, allowing a hit and walking 1. Jesus Balaguer threw 2.1 innings in his first game in American pro baseball, allowing a hit and fanning 3. Hansel Paulino pitched the final 4 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 2.

Brody Westmoreland put Greeneville on the board with an RBI single in the 3rd inning. Cody Bohanek launched his first pro homer to start the 6th inning.

Chas McCormick walked to start off the 8th inning. Bohanek and Westmoreland joined him on the bases after singling and reaching on an error, respectively. Two batters later, Frankeny Fernandez brought McCormick and Bohanek home with a double that tied the game at 4. Roman Garcia put the Appy Astros in front with a 2-run single.

Oscar Campos and McCormick singled to begin the 9th and they both advanced on a sac bunt from Bohanek. Westmoreland walked to load the bases, which brought up Reiny Beltre. Campos scored on a botched force out attempt and the bases remained loaded for Fernandez, who reached on an error that saw McCormick and Westmoreland score. Beltre scored on a Garcia groundout and Fernandez scored the final run of the evening on an error that allowed Gilberto Celestino to reach safely.

McCormick went 3-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and scored 3 runs. Bohanek finished 2-4 on the evening. Garcia only had one hit, but he managed to drive in 3. Fernandez had his 2-run double and also scored twice.
