Fresno 6, Sacramento 5

W- Kevin Comer (3-2)
L- Kyle Crick (0-2)

Fresno home runs: Tyler White (5, 2-run in 2nd), D.J. Fisher (15, solo in 3rd), Teoscar Hernandez (5, solo in 4th)

The RiverCats scored 3 in the 8th to take the lead, but Fresno scored a pair in the top of the 9th to snatch the win from them.

Francis Martes was originally scheduled to start this game, but he was scratched. As a result, Casey Coleman was pushed up a day to start. Coleman went 5.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 9 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Ralph Garza Jr. had 2 inherited runners charged to him when Tim Federowicz hit a 3-run homer off Kevin Comer in the 8th. Garza pitched 2 innings, allowing a hit, walking 2, and striking out 2. Comer allowed a run, 2 hits (3-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 3 in 1.1 innings.

Tyler White smacked a 2-run homer in the 1st to open the scoring. D.J. Fisher and Teoscar Hernandez launched solo homers in the 3rd and 4th, respectively.

Max Stassi drew a 1-out walk in the 9th, advanced to 2nd on a passed ball, and moved to 3rd on a groundout. Sacramento summoned Kyle Crick to get the final out of the game and Tyler White greeted him with an RBI single that tied the game at 5. White scored what turned out to be the game-winner on a single from Preston Tucker. White, Colin Moran, and Juan Centeno all finished with two hits on the evening.

Fresno and Sacramento will wrap up their series tonight at 7:05 Pacific. David Martinez takes on Chris Stratton.

Frisco 4, Corpus Christi 3

W- Ryne Slack (2-0)
L- Josh James (3-2)
S- Nick Gardewine (1)

CC home runs: Jack Mayfield (4, 5 season; solo in 8th)

The Hooks' comeback bid fell just short.

Josh James went 5 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs, 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. Rogelio Armenteros threw the final 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (solo homer) and walked 3.

Jack Mayfield put Corpus on the board with a solo shot in the 8th inning. Kyle Tucker ripped a 2-run double in the bottom of the 9th to cut the deficit to one run, but he was stranded there to end the game. Little Tuck's two hits were both doubles and he has a 10-game hitting streak between Buies Creek and Corpus Christi. Jamie Ritchie went 2-4.

The Hooks and RoughRiders continue their series at 7:05 as Cy Sneed goes up against Collin Wiles.

Buies Creek was off

The Carolina Stros start a 4-game series in Wilmington at 6:35 Eastern. Jorge Alcala takes on Scott Blewett.

Quad Cities 10, Wisconsin 3

W- Carson LaRue (7-1)
L- Thomas Jankins (3-4)

QC home runs: Yordan Alvarez 2 (5; solo in 3rd, 3-run in 5th), Ronnie Dawson (5, solo in 2nd), Wander Franco (3, 2-run in 2nd), Taylor Jones (3, solo in 8th)

The Banditos provided some fireworks with five home runs.

Two of those homers came off the bat of Yordan Alvarez, whose continued demolition of Midwest League pitching earned him Midwest League All-Star honors after just three weeks with Quad Cities. He smacked a solo homer in the 3rd and added a 3-run blast to his ledger in the 5th. Quad Cities got two homers in the 2nd inning as Ronnie Dawson put them on the board with his solo shot and Wander Franco launched a 2-run homer to put them in front. Dawson ripped a 2-run double in the 7th, and Taylor Jones capped it off with a solo blast in the 8th.

Dawson went 3-4 on the evening, while Alvarez (2 HR, 4 RBI), Jones (solo HR, 2 R), and Chuckie Robinson (2B, R) all turned in 2-hit nights. Alvarez extended his hitting streak to 12 games.

Carson LaRue, another Midwest League All-Star, showed how he earned that honor by turning in 7 solid innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits, walking 3, and fanning 7. Abdiel Saldaña allowed a run on a groundout, a single and walked 2 in the 8th, and Salvador Montaño worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Dustin Hunt takes the mound as the Bandits look for the sweep. He'll face Jordan Desguin at 7:05.

DSL Astros Blue 11, DSL Dodgers1 10 in 10 innings

W- Nathanael Ventura (1-0)
L- Carlos Alejo (0-1)

Blue home runs: Anthony Rodriguez (1, solo in 3rd)

The Blue team tied the game with a run in the 9th and walked off with the win in the first extra frame.

Anthony Rodriguez opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st and launched a solo shot in the 3rd. Ronny Rafael scored on a balk in the 5th.

The Blue team scored 6 in the 6th and only had to put two balls in play to do so. That's because Yorbin Ceuta and Rafael drew bases-loaded walks, while Rodriguez got plunked with the bases loaded to bring in another run. Ceuta and Rafael ended up scoring on an error that allowed César Cortez to reach safely. Rhandall Sanchez drove in the final run of the inning with an RBI infield single. In the 9th, Alfredo Angarita scored the tying run on a wild pitch, and Ronaldo Urdaneta scored the game-winner on another wild pitch in the 10th.

Rodriguez was the only player in the lineup with a multi-hit game. He, Urdaneta, Ceuta, Rafael, and Angarita all scored two runs.

Yeremi Ceballos went 2+ innings and allowed 3 runs, all of which were inherited runners that were charged to him. He allowed a hit, walked 5, and struck out 2. Freylin Garcia was the first man out of the bullpen; he took ownership of the 3rd and eventually went 3 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits, walking 2, and striking out 2. Fabricio Reina went 2.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned, 3 inherited runners charged to him). 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 2. Jean Reyes got 2 outs in the 8th, walking 1. Nathanael Ventura allowed a hit and fanned 2 over 2 scoreless.

The Blue team will take on the Red Sox at 10:30 AM Eastern.

Deury Carrasco, Jose Alvarez, and Gerry Castillo all singled.

Cristofer Melendez went 2.2 innings and allowed 6 runs on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 3. Luis De Paula allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4 in 2.1 scoreless innings, and Miguel Matos allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4 in 3 innings.
