Reno 4, Fresno 2

W- Jake Buchanan (3-3)
L- Mike Hauschild (2-4)
S- Silvino Bracho (3)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies scored twice in the opening inning, but unfortunately, that was all the offensive output they could muster up on Monday.

A.J. Reed hit an RBI single to open the scoring and one batter later, Kyle Tucker scored when Nick Tanielu grounded into a force out. Drew Ferguson finished 3-4 and scored the game's first run, while Jon Kemmer went 2-4.

Mike Hauschild went seven innings and allowed four runs on nine hits, walked two, and struck out three. Reymin Guduan allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out three over two scoreless innings.

Rogelio Armenteros will take on Kris Medlen in game two of this series. First pitch is at 6:35 Pacific.

Frisco 7, Corpus Christi 3

W- Wes Benjamin (3-3)
L- Alex Winkelman (1-2)

CC home runs: None.

The latest iteration of the Lone Star Series in the Texas League went to Frisco.

Jamie Ritchie drove in all three Corpus Christi runs in this game; he ripped an RBI double in the 5th and added a two-run triple to his ledger in the 9th. Stephen Wrenn went 2-3 with a double, a stolen base (13), and scored twice.

Alex Winkelman and Framber Valdez both pitched four innings. Winkelman allowed five runs on seven hits (three-run homer), walked two, and struck out six. Framber allowed two runs on a double, one other hit, walked two, and struck out five.

The Hooks are back home and they'll begin a three-game series with Springfield at 7:05. Ryan Hartman is scheduled to get the start for Corpus.

Buies Creek 4, Winston-Salem 1

W- Abdiel Saldaña (5-0)
L- Bernardo Flores (3-3)
S- Jorge Alcala (2)

BC home runs: None.

It was a two-man game at the plate and on the mound for the Carolina Stros. Troy Sieber and Kristian Trompiz were responsible for the offensive production, while Abdiel Saldaña and Jorge Alcala were locked in on the mound.

Abraham Toro (2B, 2 R), Sieber, and Trompiz all finished with two hits on the evening. Sieber hit RBI singles in the 1st and the 5th, while Trompiz had a two-run single in the 3rd. Everyone in the Buies Creek lineup recorded a hit.

Abdiel Saldaña allowed a run on two hits and struck out four in five innings. Jorge Alcala finished it off by allowing a hit, walking one, and striking out seven over the last four innings.

Hector Perez will start game two for Buies Creek and he'll go up against Jimmy Lambert at 7:00 Eastern.

Wisconsin 2, Quad Cities 1

W- Nelson Hernandez (6-2)
L- Yohan Ramirez (3-3)
S- Rodrigo Benoit (4)

QC home runs: None.

Both teams scored in one inning, but the Timber Rattlers scored more in the inning in which they scored.

Quad Cities' lone scoring play came in the 5th when Jake Meyers ripped an RBI double. Meyers and Jonathan Arauz both had two hits out of the top of the order and both of them had a double. Arauz snapped a string of four straight hitless games, so he's looking to get himself back on track.

Yohan Ramirez went five innings and allowed two runs, both coming on solo home runs, six hits, and struck out three in five innings. Cristian Javier mowed down the Rattlers over the last four innings as he allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out nine.

Game two of this series features Leovanny Rodriguez on the mound as he'll be making his first start of 2018. He'll face Dylan File at 11:00 AM.
