Corpus (26-19) 2.0 up

Quad Cities (23-21), 7GB

Then they got two in the bottom of the 6th, then two more in the bottom of the 8th, then the tying run against Wisconsin in the bottom of the 9th. And then it all went to hell when Wisconsin scored seven runs in the top of the 11th for a weird 12-5 win over the River Bandits.
Jordan Jankowski allowed 5H/2ER, 4K:1BB in 6IP; Mitchell Lambson allowed 1H/1ER, 0K:1BB in 1IP; Brian Holmes allowed two unearned runs on his own error in 3IP on 2H, 2K:2BB; John Neely threw two wild pitches and allowed 4H/3ER, 1K:1BB in 2IP for the loss; Richard Rodriguez allowed one of Neely's runs and three of his own in a 5H/4ER, 0K:1BB, 0.2IP outing; Brian Blasik got the final out.
