Results for Saturday, April 21, 2018

Let's play two in Burlington!

Fresno 7, Reno 2

W- Mike Hauschild (2-1)
L- Taylor Clarke (1-3)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies took the opener of their series with the Aces behind a solid night on the mound and when Reno cut their lead to one run, they got some timely offense to secure the victory.

Tony Kemp ripped an RBI double in the 2nd inning to put Fresno on the board first. They scored two more in the 3rd behind a pair of RBI singles from A.J. Reed and Garrett Stubbs. Jon Kemmer led off the 6th with a triple and scored when Kemp beat a double play attempt. The Grizzlies sealed the deal with 3 runs in the 8th inning on RBI singles from Kemp and Drew Ferguson and a sac fly from Kyle Tucker. Kemp finished 3-5 with a stolen base (6), while Stubbs and Ferguson had two hits apiece.

Mike Hauschild went 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits (solo homer) and struck out 7. Brendan McCurry allowed 3 hits and fanned 3 over two scoreless innings, and James Hoyt recorded a strikeout in a 1-2-3 9th inning.

Francis Martes takes on Troy Scribner in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 1:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 10, Frisco 3

W- Brendan Feldmann (1-0)
L- Pedro Payano (1-1)
S- Yoanys Quiala (1)

CC home runs: Nick Tanielu (3, 2-run in 1st)

Corpus stormed out to a 7-0 lead after the first two innings and for the most part, had few complications with the Roughriders.

Myles Straw led off the game with a single, stole second, and advanced to third on an errant pickoff throw from Pedro Payano. Yordan Alvarez eventually drew a walk and they both scored when Taylor Jones smacked a double. One batter later, Nick Tanielu launched a home run to put the Hooks up 4-0 out of the gate. Straw singled again in the 2nd inning and scored on an error that allowed Alvarez to reach. Jones followed by ripping another RBI double and Randy César hit an RBI single. Jamie Ritchie ripped a two-run double in the 4th inning and Straw capped off the evening with his fifth hit of the game, an RBI triple in the 9th inning.

Alvarez was the only man in the Corpus lineup who failed to record a hit, but he managed to score twice. Jones, Tanielu, Ryne Birk, Ritchie, and Alex De Goti all turned in two-hit nights.

Akeem Bostick allowed a run on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 3.2 innings. Brendan Feldmann was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and went 1.1 innings, allowing 3 hits, walking 1 and striking out 3. Yoanys Quiala pitched the final 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Alex Winkelman gets the start in game 3. He'll face Brett Martin at 4:05.

Carolina 3, Buies Creek 0

W- Marcos Diplán (1-1)
L- Jorge Alcala (0-3)
S- Chase Williams (3)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros were shut out and their winning streak came to a close.

Chuckie Robinson had both of Buies Creek's hits.

Jorge Alcala pitched well, but the only decision he could take was the loss. In 5 innings, he allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 6. Kit Scheetz threw 1.2 innings and the two runs he allowed came on a home run hit by former Aggie Ronnie Gideon. Scheetz allowed three other hits, walked one, and struck out four. Ronel Blanco struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings.

Abdiel Saldaña will take on La Grange's Trey Supak in the series finale. First pitch is at 2:00 Eastern.

Game 1: Burlington 5, Quad Cities 3

W- James Ziemba (1-0)
L- Tyler Ivey (0-2)
S- Austin Krzeminski (1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos scored in more innings... but the Bees scored more in their one inning as they took game 1.

J.J. Matijevic doubled in the 1st and eventually scored the first run of game 1 when he stole home as part of a double steal with Jonathan Arauz. Roman Garcia reached on an error to lead off the 2nd and scored on a sac fly from Jake Meyers. Garcia hit an RBI single in the 3rd. Matijevic and Gabriel Bracamonte had two hits apiece.

Tyler Ivey cruised through four innings before the wheels fell off for him in the 5th. He threw 4+ innings and allowed 5 runs (3 inherited runners charged to him) on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Colin McKee took ownership of the 5th and although he technically threw a scoreless inning in which he struck out the side, he also allowed a bases-clearing double that resulted in three runs being charged to Ivey. Tanner Duncan got a couple of groundouts and a flyout in a scoreless 6th.

Game 2: Quad Cities 5, Burlington 4

W- Adam Bleday (1-1)
L- Jorge Tavarez (1-1)
S- Dariel Aquino (1)

QC home runs: Jake Meyers (1, 2-run in 5th)

Quad Cities erased a 4-0 deficit to earn the split.

Jake Meyers put the Banditos on the board in game 2 with a two-run blast in the 5th inning. All three of their runs in the 7th came with two outs. Meyers singled in between those two outs and scored on a Corey Julks triple. Julks scored the tying run on a single from Jake Adams, who rumbled home with the go-ahead run on a double from Jonathan Arauz. Meyers finished 3-3, while Julks had two hits in game 2.

Peter Solomon went 2.1 innings and allowed 4 runs on 4 hits (solo homer), walked 4, and struck out 4. Adam Bleday restored order with 3.2 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 2, and striking out 7. Dariel Aquino worked around a walk to close out the game, striking out 1.

Quad Cities and Burlington will play another doubleheader today, with Cristian Javier taking the mound at 2:00 for game 1. Yohan Ramirez will take on Mitchell Traver in game 2.
