The Hooks scored in all but one inning as they swept the Naturals out of South Texas. Corpus outscored Northwest Arkansas 28-8 in the three-game sweep.

Lorenzo Quintana finished a grand slam shy of the home run cycle and everyone in the lineup recorded at least one hit.

Akeem Bostick struggled, but he made it through six innings and was the beneficiary of the generous run support. He allowed six runs on six hits (three homers), walked three, and struck out two. Justin Ferrell allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out two over two scoreless, and Kit Scheetz struck out the side in order in the 9th.

Osvaldo Duarte smacked a solo home run in the 4th to put Buies Creek on the scoreboard. He added an RBI double to his ledger in the 8th and Jonathan Arauz ripped an RBI double of his own in the 9th. Duarte went 2-4 and was the only man in the Buies Creek lineup to finish with more than one hit.

The Banditos launched a couple of homers in the 8th to spur them onto victory.

Jairo Solís allowed a run on two hits, walked three, and struck out three in 1.2 innings. The bullpen turned in a fantastic night with 7.1 innings of one-run ball the rest of the way. Willy Collado allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out a career-high nine in 3.1 innings of work. Carlos Sanabria and Tanner Duncan followed with two innings apiece. Sanabria walked one and struck out three in a scoreless outing, and the one hit that Duncan allowed was a solo homer in the 9th. Fortunately, he pulled himself together to secure the win. Duncan walked one and struck out two in his two innings.

Jonathan Lacroix put Quad Cities on the board by drawing a bases-loaded walk in the 5th inning. Scott Schreiber hit a one-out single in the 8th and then Mike Papierski broke the 1-1 tie in Quad Cities' favor with a two-run blast. Two batters later, Seth Beer added a solo bomb of his own. Alfredo Angarita finished 3-5, while Schreiber went 2-4.

Quad Cities has Tuesday off as they get set for a roadtrip. They'll begin a three-game series in Dayton on Wednesday.

L- Jimmy Murphy (2-1)

TC home runs: None.

The ValleyCats got out to a quick start and swept the Ironbirds out of the Capital Region.

J.B. Bukauskas, whose tough first full season can be attributed to the aftereffects of a car accident he was involved in during Spring Training, allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out six over three scoreless innings. Cody Deason, Austin Hansen, and Brett Daniels all threw two innings out of the bullpen. Deason was first and he allowed a run on two hits, walked three, and struck out two. Hansen allowed an unearned run on a groundout, walked two, and struck out three, and in his pro debut, Daniels allowed a run on two hits and struck out three.

Trey Dawson walked to start the 1st. He moved to second on a Gilberto Celestino single, went to third when Jeremy Peña grounded into a force out, and scored the first run of the morning on an errant pickoff throw. Enmanuel Valdez reached on a fielder's choice and Alex McKenna walked to load the bases for César Salazar, who lashed a two-run double. Luis Encarnación drove in the final run of the inning with a sac fly. Celestino smacked a two-run double in the 3rd and scored on a base hit from McKenna. Celestino went 4-5 with a stolen base; he's now 13-13 in stolen base attempts this season. Carlos Machado went 2-4 and scored a run.

Tri-City will have Tuesday off as they get set to start a roadtrip in central Pennsylvania. Their first stop will be Williamsport for three with the Crosscutters starting Wednesday.
