Results for Sunday, July 16, 2017

Fresno sweep!

Fresno 5, Tacoma 4

W- Brendan McCurry (2-0)
L- Jean Machi (2-4)
S- Jordan Jankowski (7)

Fresno home runs: Tony Kemp (5, 2-run in 3rd), Tyler White (16, 3-run in 9th)

Tyler White's 3-run home run put the Grizzlies in the lead, helped them steal one from right under the Rainiers, and capped off a sweep to begin the 2nd half of their season.

Prior to White's blast, Tony Kemp launched a 2-run homer in the 3rd to extend his hitting streak to 21 games. Kemp finished 3-4 on the day. Max Stassi went 2-3 with a double and scored on White's homer.

The one run that Mike Hauschild allowed in his 4 innings came on a solo homer hit by D.J. Peterson in the 2nd inning. Hauschild allowed 3 other hits, walked 3, and struck out 2. Tyson Perez allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1 in the 5th. Andrew Thome got one out in the 6th and allowed 2 runs, both of which were inherited runners that were charged to him, and walked 1. Ashur Tolliver got the last two outs of the 6th; he walked 1 and struck out 1.

Jacob Dorris, Brendan McCurry, and Jordan Jankowski all pitched a scoreless inning. Dorris walked 1 and struck out 1 in the 7th, while McCurry and Jankowski struck out 2 as they retired the side in order in the 8th and the 9th, respectively.

Rogelio Armenteros will start the first of a 4-game set in Las Vegas at 7:05 Pacific. He'll be opposed by Ricky Knapp.

Corpus Christi 2, Frisco 1 in 10 innings

W- Andrew Walter (1-0)
L- Clayton Cook (2-2)

CC home runs: None.

Collin McHugh looked sharp in what could possibly be his final rehab start and the Hooks walked it off on Arlington's AA affiliate.

McHugh went 6 innings and allowed an unearned run on an error, 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. He needed 69 pitches (48 strikes) to get through those 6 innings. Riley Ferrell and Andrew Walter followed with 2 scoreless innings apiece out of the Corpus bullpen. Ferrell allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 3, while Walter allowed a hit and fanned 1.

J.D. Davis went 3-4 with a double and opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 3rd inning. This was the only Corpus scoring play until Tony Nuñez won the game by scoring on a wild pitch in the 10th. Nuñez walked to lead off the first extra frame. Jamie Ritchie went 2-4.

Some guy named Dallas Keuchel will make his first rehab appearance tonight. I understand that he's pretty good at throwing a baseball. He'll take on Ariel Jurado at 7:05.

Buies Creek 1, Myrtle Beach 1 through 4 innings

This game was suspended due to rain. Play will resume at 5:00 Eastern.

Both teams scored a run in the 3rd; Buies Creek's came on a Taylor Jones RBI single.

Cionel Perez allowed a run on 6 hits and struck out 2 in his Carolina League debut.

Ryan Hartman will take on Mike Rucker in the regularly scheduled game, which will be a 7-inning affair.

West Michigan 7, Quad Cities 0

W- Tom de Blok (2-0)
L- Carlos Sanabria (4-3)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos' offense was handcuffed on Sunday afternoon. All they could muster up were singles from Carmen Benedetti, Troy Sieber, Daz Cameron, and Gabriel Bracamonte. Everyone in the lineup struck out at least once.

Carlos Sanabria went 6.1 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 4. Lucas Williams pitched the last 1.2 innings, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits and striking out 4.

Quad Cities and West Michigan will conclude their series at 7:00 Eastern as Yohan Ramirez takes on Anthony Castro.

Tri-City 13, Batavia 8

W- Hunter Martin (1-0)
L- Edward Cabrera (0-3)

TC home runs: J.J. Matijevic (2, 3-run in 3rd)

The ValleyCats stormed out to a 12-2 lead to take the series. Batavia cut into that lead quite a bit towards the end, but it was absorbed by that big early cushion.

TC turned a bases-loaded, no out situation to begin the 2nd inning into 6 runs. Mike Papierski led it off with a single, and then Kyle Davis and Reid Russell joined him after getting plunked and singling, respectively. Miguelangel Sierra opened the scoring with a sac fly. Davis scored on a would-be double play ball that was botched, and Russell scored on a wild pitch. Piñeda came home on a J.J. Matijevic groundout, then Corey Julks scored on a passed ball. Kristian Trompiz doubled, which prompted a pitching change. After Jake Adams drew a walk, Papierski hit an RBI single in his second plate appearance of the inning.

Sierra was plunked to start the 3rd. He then advanced to 3rd on a Piñeda single and scored on an errant pickoff throw. Julks walked, then proceeded to steal 2nd (5). Matijevic landed a haymaker in the form of a 3-run homer. In the 4th, Sierra scored on yet another wild pitch and Piñeda scored on a double play. Matijevic scored the final Tri-City run on a Carlos Canelon single in the 6th.

Trompiz went 4-6 on the day. Matijevic finished 3-6, while Sierra (2B, RBI, 2 R), Papierski (RBI, R), and Canelon (RBI) all finished with 2 hits.

Parker Mushinski went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits while striking out 6. Hunter Martin got his first professional win by throwing 3.2 innings, allowing a run on 2 hits, walking 1, and striking out 4. Diogenes Almengo allowed 5 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits and walked 1 in the final 1.1 innings.

The ValleyCats are home, and they'll start a 3-game set with Connecticut at 7:00 Eastern.

Greeneville 8, Elizabethton 4

W- Gerardo Bojorquez (2-0)
L- Edwar Colina (2-1)
S- Jheyson Caraballo (1)

Greeneville home runs: Gilberto Celestino (2, 2-run in 5th), Roman Garcia (2, grand slam in 6th)

The Appy Astros switched places in the standings with the Twins behind a strong outing from Gerardo Bojorquez and a show of power in the middle innings.

The one hit Bojorquez allowed in his 6 innings was a solo homer to Brent Rooker. Bojorquez also walked 3 and struck out 8. Jheyson Caraballo allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 over the final 3 innings.

Ruben Castro put Greeneville on the board with an RBI single in the 4th. Gilberto Celestino launched a 2-run homer in the 5th, and Roman Garcia landed the knockout blow by clubbing a grand slam in the 5th. Frankeny Fernandez capped off the evening with an RBI single in the 8th. Garcia (2B, grand slam), Castro (RBI), and Cody Bohanek (2B, R) all finished with 2 hits in the game.

Hansel Paulino faces Huascar Ynoa in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

GCL Cardinals 6, GCL Astros 2

W- Austin Warner (1-0)
L- Maikel Sepulveda (1-2)

GCL home runs: Hector Martinez (1, solo in 7th)

Rough day in the field for the Palm Beach Stros as they committed 4 errors.

Hector Martinez put the GCLstros on the board with a solo homer in the 7th and Jose Benjamin scored on an error in the 9th. Carlos Machado ripped a triple in the 8th inning.

Maikel Sepulveda allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 9 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 4.2 innings. Juan Corniel was the first man out of the bullpen and allowed a run on a double, walked 2, and struck out 2. Javier Navas retired the side in order in the 9th.

Dominican Summer League All-Star Game

The NL topped the AL 3-2.

The AL All-Stars scored twice in the 1st but nothing more. Ronaldo Urdaneta got the start at 2B and went 0-1 with a walk, scored a run, and stole a base. Ramiro Rodriguez started at DH and struck out in both of his plate appearances. Angel Tejeda entered the game as a sub in RF in the 4th and popped out to 2B in his only at-bat in the 7th.
