Fresno (5-2)

Jeebus what a game. Fresno put up a seven-spot on Salt Lake in the bottom of the first, and had a 7-0 lead going into the 7th. Then Salt Lake got three back to make it 7-3. It was 8-3 Fresno going into the top of the 9th, when Salt Lake tied up the game at 8-8 (the inning ending when Preston Tucker started a 7-6-2 outfield assist to keep it at 8-8. In the bottom of the 11th, a Matt Dominguez sac bunt and subsequent throwing error scored pinch-runner Nolan Fontana to give Fresno the wild 9-8 walkoff win.

Jake Buchanan threw 7IP, 4H/3ER, 4K:1BB; Jordan Jankowski threw a perfect 8th, striking out two. James Hoyt's 9th inning is one he'd probably like to forget, starting out single, single, single, double, walk, and that would be James Hoyt's night. Kevin Chapman allowed all three runners to score before Fontana/Torreyes/Stassi helped him out. Chapman's line would end up 3IP, 2H/0ER (though three runs would be charged to Hoyt), 6K:1BB.

Matt Duffy had himself a night: 5x6 with a double and 2RBI, the double coming in the 11th, where he was replaced by Fontana. Ronny Torreyes was 3x5 with an RBI; Joe Sclafani (3B, 2RBI), L.J. Hoes (3B, 2BB), and Matt Dominguez (RBI) had two hits each.

Man of the Match: Matt Duffy

Corpus (5-1)


Lancaster (3-4)

Lancaster and Stockton end up splitting the doubleheader.

Game 1: Lancaster never had the lead in Game 1, with Stockton breaking a 1-1 tie in the 5th and adding on four in the 7th for a 7-3 win over Lancaster. Brian Holmes allowed 5H/3ER, 6K:1BB in 5IP; Ambiorix De Leon gave up 5H/4ER, 1K:2BB in 1IP; Chris Cotton shut down the 7th with a perfect inning, striking out two.

Jobduan Morales was 3x3 and Jose Fernandez was 2x3 to represent your multi-hit games. Brett Phillips, J.D. Davis (SB, RBI), Chase McDonald (RBI), Jack Mayfield and Marc Wik had the other hits.

Man of the Match: Jobduan Morales

Game 2: Aha! But then Lancaster cruised to a 5-1 win in Game 2, scoring the first five runs of the game. Edison Frias dominated, allowing just a hit with 5K:2BB in 5IP; Adrian Houser allowed 2H/1ER, 0K:2BB in just 0.1IP; and Tyler Brunnemann got his first save of the year with 1.2IP, 0H/0ER, 1K:1BB.

J.D. Davis was 3x3 with a double and 2RBI; Brett Phillips, Chase McDonald (2B, BB, SB, RBI), Jack Mayfield, and Chan Moon (SB) had your other hits.

Man of the Match: Edison Frias

Quad Cities (5-1)
