Let's play two in Salt Lake City!

Quad Cities sweep!

Game 1: Fresno 7, Salt Lake 5

W- Rogelio Armenteros (1-0)
L- Ivan Pineyro (0-2)
S- Brendan McCurry (5)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies took the first game of the double-dip behind a three-run 6th inning.

Rogelio Armenteros threw five innings and allowed three runs on five hits, walked two, and struck out six. Brendan McCurry pitched the final two innings and allowed two runs on four hits (solo homer) while striking out two.

Tony Kemp walked to lead off the game and scored the first run of the day when Kyle Tucker beat a double play attempt. Tucker moved to third on a Tyler White single and scored on J.D. Davis' RBI double. Kemp scored another run on an Alejandro Garcia groundout in the 5th. White walked to lead off the 6th and moved to second on a Garrett Stubbs sac bunt. Jack Mayfield and Jon Kemmer joined him on the bases after drawing walks and Tony Nuñez brought them all home with a triple. Davis hit a sac fly in the 7th to bring in Fresno's final run of game 1. White and Garcia had two hits apiece.

Game 2: Salt Lake 4, Fresno 2

W- Jordan Jankowski (1-0)
L- Mike Hauschild (2-3)
S- Ian Krol (4)

Fresno home runs: None.

A couple of old friends helped the Bees get the split in the twinbill.

Mike Hauschild went four innings and allowed four runs on seven hits, one of which was a two-run homer hit by Chris Carter, walked one, and struck out four. Matt Ramsey allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out one over two scoreless.

Fresno's two runs in game two came in the 5th against Jordan Jankowski as A.J. Reed smacked an RBI triple and came home on a J.D. Davis single. Davis finished 2-2 in game 2. Drew Ferguson went 3-4, and Kyle Tucker was 2-4 with a double and a stolen base, his 3rd of the season.

Kent Emanuel will start the first of a four-game series against Sacramento. He'll face Jose Flores at 7:05 Pacific.

Midland 12, Corpus Christi 6

W- Kyle Friedrichs (2-1)
L- Corbin Martin (0-1, 2-1 season)

CC home runs: Taylor Jones (4, solo in 2nd), Nick Tanielu (4, solo in 6th)

Corbin Martin received a rather rude welcome to the Texas League and the Hounds buried the Hooks early.

Everyone in the lineup recorded a hit and they put up 14 of them, but it was not enough to make up the early 8-0 hole. Taylor Jones led off the 2nd inning with a home run and Carmen Benedetti followed that up with a double and he wound up scoring on a Nick Tanielu single. Alex De Goti sent Tanielu home with a double and he came home on a Ryne Birk single. Tanielu whacked a solo homer in the 6th and Josh Rojas hit an RBI single in the 8th.

Jones (solo HR), Benedetti (2 2B), Tanielu (solo HR, 2 RBI), Rojas (RBI single), and Jamie Ritchie all finished 2-4 on the night.

Martin only recorded one out. I'll leave it at that. Chris Nunn allowed four runs on seven hits (solo homer), walked one, and struck out four in 2.2 innings. Erasmo Pinales was the only Corpus pitcher to not allow a run; he threw three innings and allowed three hits while striking out one. Sean Stutzman pitched the final two innings and allowed two runs (both on solo homers), a single, and struck out one.

Cionel Perez will start the series finale. He'll go up against Joel Seddon at 7:00.

Buies Creek 4, Down East 2

W- Brett Adcock (2-0)
L- Jonathan Hernandez (3-2)
S- Justin Ferrell (2)

BC home runs: Chas McCormick (2, 3-run in 3rd), Osvaldo Duarte (2, solo in 7th)

The Carolina Stros only had three hits, but two of them were home runs. They also got a fine start from Brett Adcock as they avoided the sweep in round two of the Lone Star Series in North Carolina.

Adcock allowed just two hits, walked one, and struck out eight over six shutout frames. Carlos Sierra pitched two innings and allowed the Wood Ducks' only scoring play in the 7th, a two-run homer hit by Charles Leblanc. Justin Ferrell worked around a hit to close out the game, striking out two in the 9th.

Chas McCormick opened the scoring with a three-run home run in the 3rd inning, his second home run in as many days. Osvaldo Duarte also homered on consecutive days when he launched one off Jonathan Hernandez in the 7th. Luis Payano's single was Buies Creek's only other hit and he ended up scoring on McCormick's blast.

TBA will take on Tanner Banks as the Carolina Stros start a three-game series in Winston-Salem. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 5, Great Lakes 0

W- Yohan Ramirez (2-2)
L- Melvin Jimenez (0-4)

QC home runs: Colton Shaver (1, 2-run in 7th)

The Banditos earned the sweep in central Michigan as three pitchers combined on a three-hitter.

Yohan Ramirez allowed all three of those hits, walked three, and struck out six over five innings. Peter Solomon tagged in for three innings, walking one and striking out three, and Robert Corniel struck out two in a 1-2-3 9th to complete the shutout and the sweep.

Quad Cities got two sac flies from Jake Adams and Marcos Almonte in the 4th to get on the board first. Almonte walked to lead off the 7th and Colton Shaver followed by smacking his first homer of the season. Corey Julks then singled, stole second, and scored the final run of the game on an error following a Jonathan Arauz single. Arauz and Julks finished with two hits apiece. Bryan de la Cruz, who scored on Adams' sac fly, put himself in that position by doubling, which also extended his hitting streak to 13 games.

The Banditos' tour of Michigan continues with three games in Lansing. Cristian Javier will start the first game and he'll face Colton Laws at 7:05 Eastern.
