Fresno home runs: Reid Brignac (4, 2-run in 7th), Jon Kemmer (6, solo in 7th)

The Grizzlies got a fine pitching performance Friday night.

Leonys Martín and Zach Shank led off the game with singles off Casey Coleman. These would end up being Tacoma's only two hits of the evening. Shank's was an RBI single, which was the only run Coleman allowed in his 6 innings. He also walked 2 and struck out 7. Kevin Comer walked 1 and struck out 3 over 2 scoreless, and Jordan Jankowski struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Juan Centeno put Fresno on the board with an RBI single in the 3rd, which extended his hitting streak to 20 games. Reid Brignac broke the tie with a 2-run blast in the 7th and Jon Kemmer capped off the evening by launching a solo homer. D.J. Fisher went 2-4 and was the only player on either side to finish with a multi-hit game.

David Martinez will start game 3 of this series. He'll go up against Tyler Cloyd at 7:05 Pacific.

Tulsa 5, Corpus Christi 4

W- Yaisel Sierra (4-0)
L- Andrew Thome (3-3, 3-4 season)

CC home runs: Jon Singleton (9, 2-run in 3rd)

The Drillers scored 3 in the 9th to walk off with the win. This here is an example of getting the victory snatched from right under you.

Jon Singleton opened the scoring with a sac fly in the opening inning and then launched a 2-run homer in the 3rd. Ramon Laureano doubled to lead off the 9th and scored on a Jack Mayfield single. The two of them both finished 2-4 with a stolen base. Laureano now has 13 stolen bases, while Mayfield has 4 on the season. J.D. Davis went 2-3 and scored a run. Kyle Tucker has a hit in all four games he's played with Corpus and also stole a base, his first with the Hooks and 14th on the season.

Brock Dykxhoorn went 4.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 6, and struck out 4. Sean Stutzman was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 over 2.2 scoreless innings. Riley Ferrell got a double play to end the 8th inning. He came out for the 9th, but the first two men reached against him, which prompted Andrew Thome's entrance. Thome retired the first two Drillers he faced, but three straight singles gave Tulsa the win. Ferrell allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and had two inherited runners charged to him. Thome allowed 3 hits, a run of his own, and struck out 1.

Kyle Smith faces Walker Buehler at 7:05 in game 2 of the series.

Buies Creek 3, Carolina 2


W- Carlos Sierra (1-0, 1-1 season)
L- Freddy Peralta (0-3)
S- Nick Hernandez (7)

BC home runs: None.

The Mudcats tied the game with a pair in the top of the 7th but the Carolina Stros regained the advantage with a run after stretch time.

Anthony Hermelyn opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st inning and Stephen Wrenn added a sac fly. Rodrigo Ayarza ripped an RBI double in the 7th to put Buies Creek back in front. Anibal Sierra went 2-3 with a double and scored the go-ahead run.

Yoanys Quiala went 6.1 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned); both runs were inherited and charged to him following a wild pitch from Carlos Sierra and a passed ball on Hermelyn. He also allowed 2 hits, walked 5, and struck out 6. Sierra walked 1 and struck out 3 over 1.2 innings, and Nick Hernandez worked around a hit and a walk to earn the save, striking out the side in the 9th.

Framber Valdez starts the series finale. First pitch is at 6:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 5, Kane County 4

W- Lucas Williams (1-1)
L- Ryan Burr (1-2)

QC home runs: Chuckie Robinson (5, grand slam in 8th)

This, on the other hand, is what you would call snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. All 5 Quad Cities runs came in the 7th and the 8th after Kane County took a 4-0 lead into the 7th inning stretch.

Gabriel Valdez went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Ronel Blanco was the first man out of the Banditos bullpen and went 2.1 innings, allowing 2 unearned runs on 2 hits, walking 2, and fanning 1. Lucas Williams allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 over 1.2 scoreless.

Ray Henderson's RBI double put Quad Cities on the board in the 7th inning. The fun started in the 8th. Jonathan Arauz singled to lead off the inning, but the rally was on the verge of never happening when Gabriel Bracamonte and Daz Cameron struck out. Ronnie Dawson kept the inning alive by walking and Yordan Alvarez also drew a walk to bring up Chuckie Robinson, who promptly cleared the bases and put Quad Cities in front with a grand slam. Alvarez finished 2-3 to extend his hitting streak to 8 games.

Cionel Perez will start game 2 of this series. He'll take on Jon Duplantier at 6:35.
