Let's play two in Bristol!

Fresno 5, Omaha 0

W- Rogelio Armenteros (5-0, 7-3 season)
L- Andres Machado (0-1)

Fresno home runs: Preston Tucker (20, solo in 4th)

Three Grizzlies pitchers combined to shut out the Storm Chasers to begin the series.

Rogelio Armenteros has made five starts for Fresno and he's won all of them. He went 5.2 innings and allowed 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 9. Ashur Tolliver got Armenteros out of a little jam to end the 6th and wound up throwing 2.1 innings, allowing 2 hits and striking out 2. James Hoyt struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th to complete the shutout.

Tony Kemp singled to lead off the game and scored the first run of the evening on a Teoscar Hernandez double. In the 3rd, A.J. Reed hit a sac fly and Preston Tucker scored on a J.D. Davis groundout. The elder Tucker smacked a solo homer in the 4th, and Reid Brignac ripped an RBI double in the 5th. Teoscar finished 3-5 on the night. Tucker (solo HR, 2 R), Jon Kemmer (2B, R), and Brignac (2B, RBI, SB) all had 2 hits.

Midland 5, Corpus Christi 3

W- Carlos Navas (2-3)
L- Nick Hernandez (0-1, 0-2 season)
S- Tyler Sturdevant (2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hounds stole one from the Hooks thanks to their late uprising.

All 3 Corpus runs came in the 4th. Jon Singleton scored the first run of the game when Dex McCall hit into a fielder's choice. Tony Nuñez drew a bases-loaded walk, and Colin Walsh scored on a wild pitch. Singleton and Jamie Ritchie both finished with 2 hits in the game.

Walsh was just signed after getting released from the Diamondbacks organization last month. He was originally a 13th-round pick of the Cardinals out of Stanford in 2010. Walsh spent four seasons in the Cardinals system before being released in 2014, then he signed with the A's. He spent 2015 with Midland before being picked in the Rule 5 draft by the Brewers. He was returned to Oakland after 38 games with Milwaukee, where he was 4-47 with a double and 2 RBI.

Walsh signed as a minor league free agent with the Braves in November before getting released near the end of spring training, then joined the D-Backs. Walsh was at AA Jackson and slashed .273/.421/.479 with 11 homers and 31 RBI in 68 games before his release on June 27.

Alex Winkelman went 6 innings and allowed an unearned run, which was an inherited runner that was charged to him, on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Midland tagged Nick Hernandez for 3 runs (2 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits. Hernandez walked 2 and failed to record an out in the 7th. Ralph Garza Jr. took ownership of the 7th and finished the game. He allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 2 in 3 innings.

Akeem Bostick takes on Grant Holmes in the series finale. First pitch is at 6:05.

Cionel Perez allowed a run on 8 hits and struck out 4 in 6.1 innings of work. Justin Ferrell shut it down in the last 2.2 innings, walking 1 and striking out 2 to get the save.

Buies Creek loaded the bases to start the 2nd and got 3 runs out of it. Alex De Goti opened the scoring with an RBI single, then Spencer Johnson walked in another run. Two batters later, Myles Straw hit a sac fly. Straw went 2-4 and scored on a Taylor Jones single in the 5th. Jones and De Goti also had 2-hit games.
