Preston Tucker opened the scoring with a sac fly in the 1st inning, while Jack Mayfield launched a solo homer in the 6th that tied the game at 2. The Grizzlies could only get one run back following that big 8th inning from Albuquerque as Garrett Stubbs scored on a Rico Noel groundout in the 9th. Stubbs hit a couple of doubles in his 4 at-bats.

Kent Emanuel went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Jacob Dorris was the first man out of the Fresno bullpen; he walked 1 and struck out 2 over 2 scoreless innings.

The Banditos snapped a little 3-game slide thanks to a solid night on the mound.

Kit Scheetz won his Midwest League debut with 6 strong innings; he allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Lucas Williams allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless, and Devon Carr struck out the side in order to get the save.

Daz Cameron opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st inning. Chas McCormick legged out a bunt single in the 4th and Luis Payano followed by ripping a double.

Kingsport 6, Greeneville 1

W- Carlos Hernandez (3-3)
L- Gerardo Bojorquez (3-3)

Greeneville home runs: None.

When a baseball team has more errors than base hits or runs (or both, even), they usually don't win very many games.

Gilberto Celestino walked to lead off the 3rd and scored the Appy Astros' only run on an error that allowed Patrick Mathis to reach.

Gerardo Bojorquez went 3 innings and allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 2. Jheyson Caraballo was the first man out of the Greeneville bullpen and allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 5 innings. Juan Corniel allowed a hit and struck out 1 in a scoreless 9th.

Hansel Paulino goes up against Joe Cavallaro in the series finale. First pitch is at 11:30 AM Eastern.

W- Jackson Stoeckingert (1-0)
L- Freylin Garcia (0-1, 1-6 season)

GCL home runs: Eduardo de Oleo (1, 6 season; 2-run in 8th)

Eduardo de Oleo was the Palm Beach Stros' offense in this game. He went 2-4 with an RBI single in the 6th and whacked a 2-run homer in the 8th. César Cortez also went 2-4 and scored a run.

Angel Heredia made his 2017 debut, allowing 2 hits and striking out 1 in a scoreless 1st. Freylin Garcia made his U.S. debut and went 4 innings, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits, walking 3, and striking out 2. Saul Martinez went 3.2 innings and allowed 2 runs; both were inherited runners that were charged to him. He also allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Chauncey Nuñez got the last out of the 9th with a strikeout, but in addition to allowing both of the runners he inherited from Martinez to score, he allowed an unearned run and 2 hits.
