Corpus Christi (2-1)
Corpus got out to a 4-0 lead in the 5th and didn't look back, taking a 5-2 win from Springfield. Asher Wojciechowski was Straight Dealing as he allowed 1H/0ER, 7K:1BB in 5IP, facing 17 batters in his highly efficient 77 pitches. David Martinez gave up 4H/2ER, 1K:0BB (2HR), and Alex Sogard got the save, with 1H/0ER in 1.1IP.
But the fireworks came from the plate, where it apparently felt good to be a gangster. Jonathan Meyer was 3x4 with a solo HR, and George Springer (2R, BB) and Domingo Santana (2RBI) each hit homers. Austin Wates was 1x3 with a walk.
Man of the Match: Asher Wojciechowski

Quad Cities (3-0)
Quad Cities needed a nutso game over Kane County to preserve the undefeated season, letting an 8-1 lead in the 3rd slip away, and getting three in the top of the 11th for a 13-10 win.
