W- Kevin Hill (2-1)
L- Ty Barkell (1-3)
S- Erasmo Pinales (5)

QC home runs: Chuckie Robinson (8, 2-run in 4th)

The Banditos got 5 strong innings out of the bullpen to pick up Cionel Perez. The offense tied this game in the 8th and went ahead in the 11th inning.

Cionel Perez had a bare minimum quality start, allowing 5 hits (3-run homer), walking 2, and striking out 6. He turned in a solid outing despite ending it on a bit of a sour note with the 3-run homer. Kevin Hill struck out 4 over 4 scoreless; he faced one batter over the minimum due to an error. Erasmo Pinales worked around a couple of hits in the 11th to earn the save, striking out 1.

Chuckie Robinson smacked a 2-run homer in the 4th to open the scoring. Daz Cameron hit a 1-out single in the 8th, advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, and scored the tying run on a Carmen Benedetti single. Josh Rojas finished 2-4 and put Quad Cities in front with a sac fly in the 11th. Daz and Benedetti both finished 2-5 with a double and a run scored.

The River Bandits and the Bees wrap up this series at 6:30. Gabriel Valdez faces Joe Gatto.

Tri-City's only scoring play was a solo homer from Abraham Toro in the 1st inning.

Matt Ruppenthal, who was making his pro debut, allowed 2 hits and struck out 3 in 1.1 innings. Ricardo Castro was the first man out of the TC bullpen and the one run he allowed came on a solo homer from Cody Brown in the 5th. Castro allowed one other hit, walked 1, and struck out 6 in 4.2 innings. Diogenes Almengo allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 2 innings.

From Saturday: Greeneville 6, Kingsport 2

W- Leovanny Rodriguez (2-0)
L- Garrison Bryant (0-2)

Greeneville home runs: Gilberto Celestino (1, solo in 7th)

The Appy Astros' two 3-run innings topped Kingsport's pair of one-run frames.

Felipe Tejada started on Saturday and allowed 3 hits; one of those hits turned into a run that was charged to him after play resumed. He struck out 1. Leovanny Rodriguez came on to throw 7 innings, allowing a run on 4 hits and walking 1. Austin Kerns worked around a walk and an error to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Greeneville's first 3-run inning was the 5th. Oscar Campos ripped an RBI double, and then Gilberto Celestino scored on a passed ball. Campos moved to 3rd and scored on a Reiny Beltre sac fly. Celestino launched a solo homer and Cody Bohanek ripped a 2-run double in the 7th inning. Celestino and Frankeny Fernandez both finished 2-4.

Greeneville 3, Kingsport 1

W- Jheyson Caraballo (1-0)
L- Ronald Sanchez (0-1)

Greeneville home runs: None.

Greeneville also took the regularly scheduled game, which was a 7-inning contest. They scored a run in more innings than the K-Mets did, so obviously, they won.

Bohanek singled in the 1st and scored the first run of this game on a wild pitch. Wilson Amador doubled to lead off the 3rd and came home on a Brody Westmoreland sac fly, and Roman Garcia ripped an RBI double in the 6th. Adrian Tovalin went 2-3 and scored on Garcia's double.

Tim Hardy allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 over 3 scoreless. Jheyson Caraballo pitched the last 4 innings and allowed an unearned run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Bryan Abreu takes on Jose Geraldo in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

GCL Marlins 8, GCL Astros 2

W- Vincenzo Aiello (1-0)
L- Matt Merrill (0-1)

GCL home runs: Enmanuel Valdez (1, solo in 8th)

The Marlins jumped out to a 7-0 lead after the 2nd and cruised to the win.

Carlos Diaz's first career hit was an RBI single in the 7th inning. Enmanuel Valdez launched a solo homer in the 8th.

Matt Merrill got the start but failed to record an out, allowing 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits. Ronaldo Marrero took ownership of the 1st and also pitched the 2nd, allowing 4 runs (2 earned) on 6 hits, walking 1, and striking out 2. Javier Navas went 3 innings and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Johsson Arias allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 over 2 scoreless, and Chauncey Nuñez allowed a hit in a scoreless 8th.
