Let's play two in Midland!

Fresno 11, Round Rock 8

Fresno home runs: Jon Kemmer (15, solo in 6th), Teoscar Hernandez (12, 2-run in 5th), Preston Tucker (19, 2-run in 6th), Reid Brignac (13, solo in 7th)

The Grizzlies scored 10 of their 11 runs from the 4th-7th innings to take control of this game, and the outburst proved to be enough to withstand a late Express rally.

Rogelio Armenteros went 5.2 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits (3 solo homers), walked 1, and struck out 8. Brendan McCurry threw 1.1 innings as the first man out of the Fresno bullpen and issued a walk and hit another batter. Ashur Tolliver allowed a run on a sac fly, a single, walked 2, and struck out 1 in the 8th.

Reymin Guduan got 2 outs in the 9th via strikeout but also allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits and walked 2. Dayan Diaz was greeted with an RBI single after coming on, but he was able to get the final out of the game.

J.D. Davis put Fresno on the board with an RBI single in the 2nd inning and added another one to his ledger in the 4th. Jon Kemmer smacked a solo homer in the 5th. D.J. Fisher followed with a single and Teoscar Hernandez sent him home with a home run.

The Grizz scored 4 in the 6th as Tony Kemp scored on a wild pitch following a triple, D.J. Fisher hit an RBI single, and Preston Tucker whacked a 2-run homer. Reid Brignac led off the 7th with a homer and Juan Centeno drove in the last Fresno run with an RBI single.

Davis went 3-5 on the night, while Kemp (3B, R), Fisher (RBI, 2 R), Teoscar (2-R HR, 2 R), and Big Tuck (2-R HR, 2 R) all finished with 2 hits.

David Martinez will be on the mound as Fresno looks for the sweep. First pitch is at 7:05 Eastern.

W- Dustin Hurlbutt (3-1)
L- Franklin Perez (0-1, 4-3 season)

CC home runs: Ramon Laureano (6, led off game), Jason Martin (9, 16 season; solo in 4th)

The Hounds were unleashed on the Hooks in game 1 of the doubleheader.

Franklin Perez went 4 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 7 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Nick Hernandez and Ryan Thompson pitched an inning apiece; Hernandez allowed 5 runs (2 earned) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in the 5th, while Thompson allowed a 2-run homer to Max Schrock in the 6th, one of 4 hits that he allowed in the inning. He also struck out 1.

Would the Hooks' fortunes turn out a little better in game 2?

Andrew Walter allowed 6 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits (2-run homer) and walked 1 while only getting one out in the 6th. Riley Ferrell got the last two outs of the 6th, one via strikeout, but not before allowing a 3-run homer to B.J. Boyd that also allowed the two runners he inherited from Walter to score.
