S- Kevin McCarthy (1)

Fresno home runs: J.D. Davis (4, 25 season; 2-run in 4th)

Although David Martinez managed to shake off a 4-run 1st from Omaha, the Grizzlies offense was held in check on Sunday.

Martinez went 5 innings and allowed those 4 runs on 5 hits, one of which was a 3-run homer, walked 1, and struck out 3. Brendan McCurry was the first man out of the Fresno bullpen and allowed an unearned run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 1.2 innings. Dayan Diaz retired all 4 Omaha hitters he faced, striking out 3 of them.

J.D. Davis smacked a 2-run homer in the 4th for the Grizzlies' only scoring play of the afternoon. The other two Fresno hits were doubles from Teoscar Hernandez and Reid Brignac.

Midland 8, Corpus Christi 1

W- Grant Holmes (8-10)

The Hounds put this game out of reach with 2 in the 7th and 4 more in the 8th.

Tony Nuñez hit an RBI infield single in the 5th to drive in the only Corpus run. Drew Ferguson went 2-4 to account for half of the Hooks' hits in this game.

Akeem Bostick went 3.1 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Ryan Thompson came on to get Bostick out of a bases-loaded jam in the 4th and ultimately threw 2.2 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 6. Riley Ferrell was next, and he allowed 5 runs (4 earned, 3 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3 in 1.2 innings. Andrew Thome pitched the final 1.1 innings and allowed a run on a grand slam and walked 1. The other three runs were charged to Ferrell.

Down East 6, Buies Creek 5

W- Scott Williams (1-0)
L- Carlos Sierra (1-1, 1-2 season)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros scored 5 in the top of the 7th to take a lead... only to see the Wood Ducks tie the game in the bottom of the inning and go ahead with a run in the 8th that proved to be the difference.

Hector Perez went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 6, and struck out 3. Ryan Hartman allowed 3 runs on 5 hits and struck out 2 in 1.2 innings, and Carlos Sierra allowed a run on 2 hits and issued a walk in his 1.1 innings of work.

Buies Creek loaded the bases to begin the 7th and got their 5 runs out of it. Yordan Alvarez put them on the board with a 2-run single. Jake Rogers followed with a sac fly. After a Taylor Jones single, Anthony Hermelyn ripped an RBI double to send Alvarez home. Jones scored on a Randy César sac fly. Jones, Hermelyn, César, and Anibal Sierra all finished with 2 hits on the day.

Matt Bower will start the first of a 3-game series in Wilmington. First pitch is at 6:35 Eastern.

Quad Cities 10, Kane County 9

W- Salvador Montaño (4-2)
L- Anfernee Benitez (0-1)

QC home runs: Abraham Toro-Hernandez (3, 9 season; solo in 3rd), Ronnie Dawson (13, 3-run in 6th)

The Banditos got on the board in this series by successfully erasing a 5-run deficit.

Quad Cities opened things up with 3 in the opening half-inning. Ronnie Dawson tripled to start the game and scored the first run of the day on a Chuckie Robinson single. Abraham Toro-Hernandez added a sac fly and Kristian Trompiz drove in a run with a bloop single. Toro smacked a solo homer in the 3rd inning.

Trompiz and Ray Henderson singled to start the 6th. Trompiz advanced on a flyout, and then Dawson got Quad Cities back in the game with a 3-run homer. Toro added an RBI single to his ledger to cut the deficit to one run. Dawson walked to lead off the 8th and scored the tying run on another single from Robinson. Troy Sieber walked to load the bases for Toro, who flew out, but Chas McCormick hit a sac fly that turned into an inning-ending double play to put the Banditos in front.

Robinson (2 RBI, R) and Trompiz (RBI) both finished with 3 hits on the day, while Dawson (3B, 3-R HR, 3 R), Toro (solo HR, 3 RBI), and Henderson all had 2 hits apiece.

Ronel Blanco went 4 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 5 hits, walked 5, and struck out 4. Robert Corniel allowed 4 runs on 5 hits and walked 4 in 2.2 innings. He got 2 outs to start the 7th but walked the bases loaded, which prompted Salvador Montaño's entrance. Montaño got Corniel out of the jam and finished off the game, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 2 in 2.1 innings.

Patrick Sandoval takes on Emilio Vargas in game 3 of this series. First pitch is at 6:30.

Vermont 5, Tri-City 2

W- Argenis Blanco (2-4)
L- Ben Smith (3-2)
S- Branden Kelliher (3)

TC home runs: None.

Vermont scored 3 in the 5th to break a 1-1 tie. The ValleyCats were done in by some sloppy play in the field as they commited 4 errors in this game.

Brandon Bielak went 4 innings and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Ben Smith allowed 3 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in the 5th. Corbin Martin followed by allowing an unearned run on an error on what was ruled a sac fly, walking 1, and striking out 4 in 4 innings.

J.J. Matijevic ripped an RBI double in the 4th to put Tri-City on the board. Colton Shaver went 2-4 with an RBI single in the 6th.

Tyler Ivey faces Wyatt Marks in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Burlington 13, Greeneville 1

W- J.C. Cloney (3-1)
L- Hansel Paulino (1-1)

Greeneville home runs: Gilberto Celestino (3, solo in 1st)

Well... that degenerated quickly. The Appy Astros got sliced and diced by the Royals, who scored their 13 runs on 14 singles and two doubles.

Gilberto Celestino smacked a solo homer in the 1st to open the scoring, which was as good as it got for Greeneville in this game. After that, it was all Burlington.

Hansel Paulino went 3 innings and allowed 9 runs (5 earned) on 9 hits and struck out 7. Cole Watts was the first man out of the bullpen and in his 4 innings, he allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Dariel Aquino allowed 2 runs on 2 hits and walked 1 in the 8th.

Felipe Tejada will start game 2 and he'll take on Sal Biasi at 7:00 Eastern.

Finally... J.B. Bukauskas, the Astros' 1st-round pick back in June, made his pro debut in the GCL on Sunday, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 2 in a scoreless 1st inning against the Nationals. The game was suspended heading into the 2nd inning due to rain; the Astros were leading 1-0 when play was halted.
