Well well. Fresno had a 3-2 lead after one, a 9-2 lead after two, a 13-2 lead after three...and ended up putting a whoopin' on Albuquerque to the tune of 17-6. The Grizzlies did this on 12 hits and 13 walks aided by Jon Singleton's 2HR/10RBI night. Asher Wojciechowski threw 5IP, 8H/4ER, 6K:2BB; Jonas Dufek allowed 3H/2ER, 2K:2BB in 2IP; Tommy Shirley (1K) and Tyson Perez (2K) threw perfect innings in the 8th and 9th, respectively.
Jon Singleton's night:
1st PA: Two-run single to right (1x1, 2RBI)
2nd PA: Grand slam to right (2x2, 6RBI)
3rd PA: Two-run homer to center (3x3, 8RBI)
4th PA: Strikeout swinging (3x4, 8RBI)
5th PA: Two-run single to left (4x5, 10RBI)
6th PA: Lineout to right (4x6, 10RBI)
Singleton set a single-game franchise record for RBI, and was just one RBI short of Mike Moustakas' PCL record. Domingo Santana was 2x3 with 3BB; Joe Sclafani and L.J. Hoes each had a hit and three walks; Carlos Correa was 1x4 with a double, two walks, and three runs scored. Matt Dominguez was 2x6 with an RBI.
Man of the Match:
A pair of one-run innings was all Lancaster needed to beat Visalia, 2-0. Edison Frias threw 5IP, 5H/0ER, 6K:2BB and Brian Holmes threw 4IP, 0H/0ER, 7K:0BB and faced the minimum 12 batters.
Danry Vasquez was 3x5 with a stolen base and an outfield assist; A.J. Reed was 1x4 with an RBI; Jack Mayfield, Jose Fernandez, and James Ramsay were each 1x3 with a walk.
Man of the Match: Brian Holmes
Quad Cities (26-7)
You see that a team is down 7-0 in the 2nd, and you don't expect much. The MLB win expectancy of a team in a similar situation is about 5.8%. But I guess when you have the best record in professional baseball, that doesn't bother you much. Beloit's 7-0 lead in the middle of the 2nd was 7-1, then 7-3, then 8-3, then a 5-run 4th and a 6-run 5th for Quad Cities put the game out of reach, and Quad Cities improves to 26-7 with a 15-8 win.
Keven Comer allowed 4H/5R (3ER), 0K:1BB in 0.2IP; Jose Montero allowed 4H/3ER (and two runs charged to Comer) in 2.2IP; Reymin Guduan struck out five in 2.2 scoreless innings; Keegan Yuhl threw 2IP, 1H/0ER, 3K:1BB and Ryan Thompson struck out two in the 9th.
Jacob Nottingham was 3x5 with a single, double, homer and 4RBI; Nick Tanielu was 3x5 with two doubles and two RBI; Jason Martin was 3x5 with two triples. Bobby Boyd was 2x3 with a double, walk, 2RBI, and an outfield assist. Ryan Bottger was 2x5 with a double and 2RBI; Mott Hyde was 1x3 with a walk and 3RBI.
