Results for Monday, June 25, 2018

El Paso 7, Fresno 5

W- Brett Kennedy (5-0)
L- Josh James (2-3)
S- Brad Wieck (1)

Fresno home runs: Nick Tanielu (1, 5 season; 2-run in 5th), Kyle Tucker (11, solo in 6th)

The Grizzlies tied the game at 4 with a couple of runs in the 4th and the 5th... but the Chihuahuas regained control with two runs of their own in the bottom of the 5th and were able to hold Fresno off.

Fresno got on the board in the 4th thanks to a couple of run-scoring groundouts hit by J.D. Davis and A.J. Reed. Nick Tanielu smacked a two-run homer in the 5th that tied the game and Kyle Tucker, who extended his hitting streak to 14 games, launched a solo shot to begin the 6th. Little Tuck finished 2-3 and scored twice.

Josh James became the first pitcher in the system to strike out 100 batters, but he also hit his first bump since being promoted. In 4.2 innings, James allowed six runs (two inherited runners charged to him) on seven hits (two-run homer), walked three, and struck out six. Kent Emanuel got the last out of the 5th and the first out of the 6th and allowed a run, which was an inherited runner that was charged to him, on three hits. Andrew Thome allowed two hits in 1.2 innings and James Hoyt worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th.

Parker Mushinski and Dariel Aquino... had tough nights and I'll just leave it at that.
