Midland 3, Corpus Christi 2

W- Sam Bragg (2-0)
L- Sean Stutzman (1-1)
S- Jake Sanchez (4)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks got two in the 1st but nothing more as the Hounds ended up edging them thanks to a run in the 7th inning that broke a 2-2 tie.

Myles Straw led off the bottom of the 1st with a double and scored Corpus Christi's first run on a double from Carmen Benedetti. Taylor Jones brought Benedetti in with a sac fly. Both of Straw's hits were doubles.

Josh James went 3 innings and allowed 2 runs on 7 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. Sean Stutzman was the first man out of the Hooks bullpen and had an unearned run charged to him... which turned out to be the go-ahead run. Stutzman allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in his 4 innings of work. The run scored on a throwing error committed by Randy C├ęsar. Kevin Hill threw 2 scoreless and also allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2.

Buies Creek 3, Down East 0

W- Brandon Bielak (3-1)
L- Emerson Martinez (2-2)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros only scored in one inning, but it was enough for them because Hector Perez and Brandon Bielak kept the Wood Ducks off the board for nine innings.

Perez allowed just one hit, but he also walked four and struck out five in his 4.2 innings of work. Bielak tagged in and took over the rest of the way, allowing 3 hits, walking 1, and striking out 9 over the final 4.1 innings.

All three Buies Creek runs came in the 3rd inning and they hit six singles in a row to get those three runs. Abraham Toro, Chas McCormick, and Kristian Trompiz had the RBI singles. Trompiz finished 3-3 on the evening, while McCormick, Ronnie Dawson, and Osvaldo Duarte all had two hits.

In the second game of the Lone Star Series in North Carolina, Carson LaRue will go up against Edgar Arredondo. First pitch is 7:00 Eastern.

Kane County 11, Quad Cities 3

W- Jeff Bain (1-0)
L- J.B. Bukauskas (0-2)
S- Matt Peacock (1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos managed to cut a 6-0 deficit in half in the top of the 8th inning, but the Cougars responded by burying them with five runs in the bottom half.

Quad Cities turned a bases-loaded situation to start the inning into their three runs as Bryan de la Cruz singled to bring in two and a swinging bunt from Adrian Tovalin plated another run. De La Cruz and Jake Meyers both finished 2-4 on the day.

J.B. Bukauskas threw 2+ innings and allowed 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 7 hits and struck out 1. Parker Mushinski was the first man out of the Banditos bullpen and allowed 3 runs of his own, in addition to the two that were charged to Bukauskas. In his 4 innings, Mushinski allowed 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. He also hit a batter and uncorked three wild pitches during the course of his outing. Cole Watts allowed 5 runs, one of which was an inherited runner that was charged to him, on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 2. Robert Corniel got the final two outs of the 8th, one via strikeout, but not before he allowed the runner that he inherited from Watts to score. Corniel also allowed a hit and issued a walk.

Patrick Sandoval will take on Mack Lemieux in game 3 of this series. First pitch is at 11:00 AM.
