Buies Creek 4, Carolina 3

W- Jesús Balaguer (3-1)
L- Alec Kenilvort (0-2)
S- Colin McKee (1)

BC home runs: None.

Buies Creek's offense came alive with a three-run 7th that put them in front. Prior to that, they only had one run and one hit.

That one run came courtesy of Troy Sieber, who hit a double with one out in the 5th that was that one hit until the 7th inning. He advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Carlos Canelón's groundout.

Aníbal Sierra hit a one-out single in the 7th. Sieber drew a walk, and Canelón singled to load the bases for Kristian Trompiz, who hit a flyball that resulted in a force out at second. Sierra scored but Canelón was thrown out at second for the second out. Alfredo Angarita came through with an RBI single and an error on the play allowed Trompiz to score what turned out to be the decisive run.

Jorge Alcala threw 5.2 innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits, walked two, and struck out six. Jesús Balaguer has had a rather rough start to May, but he's hoping that this outing is a step back in the right direction. He walked two and struck out three over 2.1 scoreless innings. The Mudcats threatened in the 9th, but Colin McKee found a way to close it out. He worked around a walk and a single to secure the victory, striking out two.

Abdiel Saldaña will start the first of a three-game series in Myrtle Beach. He'll face Alex Lange at 7:05 Eastern.

Quad Cities 7, Fort Wayne 1

W- Yohan Ramirez (3-2)
L- Emmanuel Ramirez (1-2)

QC home runs: Jake Meyers (3, solo in 3rd), Corey Julks (3, solo in 8th)

The Banditos dominated the two afternoon games to take this series from the TinCaps.

Yohan Ramirez turned in a gem as he allowed a hit, walked three, and struck four over seven shutout innings. Fort Wayne spoiled the shutout in the 9th with a solo homer off Carlos Sanabria. Sanabria pitched two innings and allowed two other hits, walked one, and struck out two.

Jake Meyers opened the scoring by leading off the 3rd with a homer. Cody Bohanek singled to lead off the 4th and dashed home on a Marcos Almonte double. Quad Cities broke things open with four runs in the 6th.

Bohanek tripled to lead off the inning and Almonte brought him in with a single. Almonte advanced to second on Corey Julks' groundout and scored on Meyers' double. Meyers stole third and Jonathan Arauz worked a walk. Arauz successfully stole second and Meyers took advantage of the errant throw down to score another run. Julks launched a leadoff home run in the 8th for the last Quad Cities run. Almonte, Meyers, and Bohanek all had two hits on the afternoon.

The River Bandits will start a three-game series with the Lake County Captains at 6:35. Luis Garcia will start the opener and he'll take on Gregori Vasquez.
