Sweep!


Fresno 2, El Paso 1

W- Josh James (1-2)
L- Dillon Overton (1-2)
S- James Hoyt (3)

Fresno home runs: None.

Fresno came out on top in an afternoon edition of Taco Tuesday to take their series with the Chihuahuas.

Drew Ferguson scored both of the Tacos' runs and Jack Mayfield brought him in both times. Mayfield ripped a double in the 4th and added a sac fly to his ledger in the 6th.

Josh James turned in a nice outing and earned his first win of the year. He allowed a run on 6 hits, walked one, and struck out nine in seven innings of work. Kent Emanuel allowed a hit in a scoreless 8th. Buddy Boshers got the first two outs of the 9th and James Hoyt finished it off by striking out Dusty Coleman.

Fresno will end May and begin June with a five-game set in Albuquerque. Brock Dykxhoorn will get the start in the opener and he'll face former Astro Brett Oberholtzer at 6:35 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 11, Springfield 4

W- Yoanys Quiala (5-4)
L- Yeison Medina (0-2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks broke a 4-4 tie in emphatic fashion with a six-run 6th inning.

Ryan Hartman threw four innings and the four runs he allowed came on a pair of two-run homers. Hartman allowed two other hits, walked one, and struck out six during his stint on the mound. Yoanys Quiala picked him up and brought the Hooks home with five scoreless innings, allowing three hits, walking one, and striking out six.

Taylor Jones opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st inning. Stephen Wrenn led off the 2nd with a double and came home on a Jamie Ritchie single. Ritchie advanced station-to-station and then scored on a wild pitch. Jones plated the third run of the 2nd inning by hitting a sac fly to score Aníbal Sierra. That sac fly would be Corpus Christi's last scoring play until they busted this game open in the 6th; in the meantime, the Cardinals got their two two-run homers.

Wrenn kick-started the big inning by leading it off with a single. He then stole second and scored on another Ritchie single. Alex De Goti walked and Sierra singled to load the bases for Myles Straw, who walked Ritchie in. Josh Rojas was next and he brought everyone home with a triple. Jones got plunked, but Randy César kept things moving with an RBI single that extended his hitting streak to 21 games. Ritchie drove in the final run of the evening with yet another RBI single in the 8th. All three of his hits were RBI singles. De Goti was the only man in the Corpus lineup to go hitless, but he did score a run in the 6th. Straw and Wrenn both finished 2-4 with two runs scored.

Corbin Martin gets the start in game two of this series. He'll take on Jake Woodford at 6:30.

Buies Creek 11, Down East 6

W- Carson LaRue (3-2)
L- Edgar Arredondo (5-2)

BC home runs: Ronnie Dawson (6, 2-run in 1st), J.J. Matijevic (4, 7 season; 2-run in 8th)

The Carolina Stros turned a 5-2 deficit into a 7-5 lead with five runs in the 6th as part of a 9-1 run to close this game out.

Carson LaRue allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits (solo and three-run homers), walked one, and struck out two. Gabriel Valdez was the first man out of the Buies Creek bullpen and the one run that he allowed in his three innings of work came on a solo homer hit by Charles Leblanc in the 8th. Valdez allowed one other hit, walked two, and struck out two. Jesús Balaguer worked around a couple of walks to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out two.

Ronnie Dawson got the scoring started when he whacked a two-run homer in the 1st. This was Buies Creek's only scoring play until they went off in the 6th.

Carlos Canelón and Alfredo Angarita led off the 6th with singles and they both advanced a base on Dawson's groundout. Abraham Toro ripped a two-run double to bring them in and he eventually scored on an error that allowed Osvaldo Duarte to reach. Duarte moved to second on a passed ball and scored on a Chas McCormick single. McCormick came in with the fifth and final run of the inning on a Luis Payano RBI single.

Toro singled to lead off the 8th and one batter later, J.J. Matijevic swatted a home run. Duarte followed with a double and he would score on wild pitch. Duarte drove in the final run of the night with an RBI single in the 9th. He, Toro, McCormick, and Canelón all finished with two hits in the game.

Brett Adcock will face Jonathan Hernandez in game two of this series. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 4, Clinton 2

W- Patrick Sandoval (4-1)
L- Raymond Kerr (1-4)
S- César Rosado (1)

QC home runs: Colton Shaver (6, solo in 5th), Miguelangel Sierra (3, 2-run in 6th)

The Banditos pounded out 13 hits but only had four runs to show for it. No matter, they still came out on top.

Miguelangel Sierra put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI single in the 4th. Colton Shaver led off the 5th with a home run to tie the game, and Sierra whacked a two-run home run in the 6th to put the Banditos in front. Jake Adams went 4-4 with a couple of doubles. Sierra, Shaver, and Jake Meyers all finished 2-4.

Patrick Sandoval went five innings and allowed two unearned runs on four hits, walked two, and struck out six. César Rosado finished with four scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out one.

Tyler Ivey was originally scheduled to start tonight's contest, but he was just promoted to Buies Creek. Whoever gets the start in his stead will go against Oliver Jaskie at 6:30.
