Results for Sunday, May 13, 2018

Fresno 6, Salt Lake 4

W- Cy Sneed (3-2)
L- Ivan Pineyro (0-4)
S- Brendan McCurry (6)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Bees made things a little interesting in the 8th, but the Grizzlies pulled themselves together to come away with the victory on Mother's Day.

Cy Sneed went six innings and allowed a run on four hits, walked two, and struck out six. Kent Emanuel tagged in for 1.2 innings and allowed three runs on a home run hit by Jabari Blash; two of the runs were earned. Emanuel allowed two other hits, walked two, and struck out three. Brendan McCurry walked one and struck out one over the last 1.1 innings to get the save.

A.J. Reed walked to lead off the 2nd and scored Fresno's first run on a Tim Federowicz double. Drew Ferguson put them in front when he scored on a J.D. Davis groundout in the 3rd. The Grizzlies created some separation between themselves and Salt Lake with a four-run 4th as Tony Kemp hit a two-run single, Kyle Tucker added a sac fly, and Davis ripped an RBI double. Federowicz and Alejandro Garcia finished with two hits apiece. Kemp now has a 19-game hitting streak.

Mike Hauschild will get the start in game 3. He'll face Felix Peña at 6:35 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 8, Midland 3

W- Corbin Martin (1-1, 3-1 season)
L- Jesús Luzardo (1-1)
S- Erasmo Pinales (1)

CC home runs: Taylor Jones (6, solo in 8th)

Taylor Jones put on a show at the plate and Erasmo Pinales did the same on the mound as the Hooks stomped the RockHounds on Sunday afternoon.

Jones went 4-4 on Sunday. His first hit was an RBI double in the 1st that opened the scoring. Two batters later, Nick Tanielu ripped a two-run double. Stephen Wrenn and Josh Rojas hit RBI singles in the 4th and the 5th, respectively. In the 6th, Wrenn added an RBI double to his ledger and Rojas drew a bases-loaded walk. Jones' fourth and final hit of the afternoon was a solo blast in the 8th inning. Wrenn, Tanielu, and Myles Straw all finished with two hits on the day.

Corbin Martin threw 5.1 innings and allowed an unearned run which scored after he left, two hits, walked two, and struck out six. Sean Stutzman pitched 1.1 innings and the two runs he allowed came on a home run hit by Brett Siddall. Stutzman allowed three other hits, walked two, and struck out one. Erasmo Pinales locked it down over the last 2.1 innings, allowing a hit and striking out six to get the save.

The Hooks will start a four-game series with San Antonio at 7:05. Yoanys Quiala will take on Miguel Diaz in the opener.

Myrtle Beach 8, Buies Creek 7

W- Tyler Peyton (2-1)
L- Jesús Balaguer (3-2)

BC home runs: Aníbal Sierra (4, 2-run in 4th)

The Carolina Stros held the Pelicans to four hits... and ended up walking off with a loss as they squandered a 6-1 lead. Myrtle Beach scored seven of their eight runs in the final two innings, culminating in a four-run 9th to give them the victory.

Aníbal Sierra whacked a two-run homer in the 4th to put Buies Creek on the scoreboard. They got four in the 7th as Orlando Marquez smacked an RBI ground-rule double. Luis Payano, who drew a walk prior to Marquez's double, scored when Alfredo Angarita hit into a fielder's choice. Marquez stole home as part of a double steal, and Angarita scored on a pop-fly RBI single from Abraham Toro. Angarita scored on a J.J. Matijevic sac fly in the 9th. Toro went 4-5, while Sierra finished 2-3. Angarita has gone 2-18 in his last four games but he's also scored eight runs in that stretch.

Each of the four Buies Creek pitchers who appeared in this game allowed one hit. The one that Brandon Bailey allowed was a solo home run to Jhonny Pereda in the 2nd inning. Bailey also walked six and struck out four in five innings of work. Brett Adcock allowed an RBI single, three runs (two inherited runners charged to him), walked two, and struck out four in 2.2 innings. Jesús Balaguer got the last out of the 8th and the first out of the 9th, both via strikeout, but he allowed four runs (three inherited runners charged to him), an RBI double, and walked three. Colin McKee allowed a single, a bases-loaded walk, and the winning run (which was charged to Balaguer) on a wild pitch. Sheesh.

Buies Creek has Monday off. They'll start a three-game series with Winston-Salem on Tuesday.

Quad Cities was off

The Banditos will start a five-game series in Cedar Rapids at 6:35.
