Fresno (2-2)

The Fresno Grizzlies had a 2-0 lead and a 5-4 lead, but Las Vegas kept scoring off of the Grizzlies bullpen, and a late rally fell short. Fresno loses, 8-7. Luis Cruz threw 5IP, allowing 4H/3ER, 5K:1BB; Darin Downs gave up a run with 2H, 1K:1BB in 1IP; Kevin Chapman took the BS/L with 2H/3ER, 1K:1BB in 0.2IP; Jason Stoffel inherited the bases loaded, and thus allowed two of those runs to score; Jordan Jankowski gave up 2H/1ER, 2K:0BB in the 9th.

Matt Duffy was 2x5 with a home run and 4RBI on the day; Joe Sclafani (BB), Jon Singleton (2B), and Alex Presley (2B) had two hits each. Matt Dominguez was 1x3 with a double and 2RBI.

Man of the Match: Matt Duffy

Corpus (4-0)

Corpus might not lose, like, ever. Lance McCullers threw a gem, hit 99 a few times on the gun, and the Hooks cruised to a 4-0 win and a road sweep at Tulsa. McCullers threw 5IP, 4H/0ER, 7K:3BB; Travis Ballew allowed 2H/0ER, 3K:0BB; Daniel Minor (BB) and Tyson Perez each threw hitless, scoreless innings.

Tony Kemp (BB), Leo Heras (RBI), and Brandon Meredith (2B, 2RBI) had two hits each - and Meredith and Heras each had outfield assists, getting runners at second base. Telvin Nash hit a solo homer and drew a walk.

Man of the Match: Lance McCullers

Lancaster (2-2)

San Jose and Lancaster traded runs in the 2nd, and then that would be it until Jobduan Morales provided a walk-off hit and a 2-1 JetHawks win. JetHawks pitcher Troy Scribner had a day, allowing 2H/1ER, 8K:1BB in 6IP; Tyler Brunnemann threw 2.1IP, 1H/0ER, 0K:2BB; and Frederick Tiburcio struck out the last two Giants batters he faced.

Chan Moon (2B) and Chase McDonald (BB) had two hits each; James Ramsay, J.D. Davis, Jose Fernandez (BB, RBI) and Morales added your other hits.

Man of the Match: Troy Scribner

Quad Cities (3-1)

A 5-run 5th for Quad Cities is all they needed (all most teams need, really) in a 7-2 win over Clinton. Austin Chrismon threw 6IP, 2H/1R (0ER), 3K:1BB; Eric Peterson threw 2IP, 2H/1ER, 1K:0BB and Ryan Thompson allowed just a hit with 2K in the 9th.

Jacob Nottingham was 3x4 with a double, homer and an RBI; Bobby Boyd was 2x3 with 2RBI and a stolen base; Derek Fisher and Nick Tanielu were each 1x4 with an RBI.

Man of the Match: Austin Chrismon
