PreStros Morning Report: May 19


*Org goes 4-0 on the night; 99-57 cumulative record.
*Runs and hits and runs and hits. Fresno wins 12-2 behind Matt Dominguez's 5x5 night; Jon Singleton's 4x5 night, Domingo Santana's two homers, and Carlos Correa's first Triple-A home run.
*Corpus got an unearned run-less start from Vince Velasquez and 3RBI from Jon Kemmer in a 6-2 win over San Antonio.
*Lancaster scored once in the bottom of the 9th and got the walk-off in the 12th for an 8-7 win over High Desert.
*Almost literally all Quad Cities does is win. Derek Fisher hit three doubles, Nick Tanielu knocked in three runs, and the River Bandits won their 19th of their last 22 games.

Fresno (22-17)

Good LAWD. Fresno hammered out 12 runs on 19 hits off El Paso, and the Grizzlies cruised to a 12-2 win over the Chihuahuas. Asher Wojciechowski threw 5.2IP, 5H/2ER, 2K:2BB for the win; Richard Rodriguez allowed a hit, striking out four, in 2.1IP; Jason Stoffel struck out one in the 9th.

Crazy thing is, the Grizzlies were only 2x9 w/RISP - they just hit four doubles and six home runs. Matt Dominguez was 5x5 with a double and a solo homer; Jon Singleton was 4x5 with a double and an RBI; Domingo Santana was 2x5 with two home runs and 3RBI; Carlos Correa hit his first Triple-A homer, going 2x6 with 2RBI; Robbie Grossman (2RBI) and L.J. Hoes were each 2x6 with a homer. Luis Flores was 2x5 with a double and 2RBI, and Joe Sclafani was 0x3 with two walks.

Man of the Match: Matt Dominguez, who - with a single, double, and a homer - was just a second girl short of a threesome.

Corpus (26-12)

San Antonio had the briefest of 2-0 leads in the top of the 3rd, but Corpus erased that and tacked on to it in the bottom half on the way to a 6-2 win. Vince Velasquez threw 5.1IP, 5H/2R (0ER), 4K:1BB; Mitch Lambson threw 2.2IP, 0H/0ER, 2K:0BB; and Travis Ballew gave up two hits but allowed no runs in the 9th.

Jon Kemmer was 2x4 with two doubles and 3RBI; Chan Moon and Tony Kemp were each 2x3 with a walk; Telvin Nash hit his 7th homer of the season and drew a walk. Leo Heras was 1x3 with a walk and two stolen bases.

Man of the Match: Vince Velasquez

Lancaster (20-19)

Crazy one, as usual, in Lancaster as there were five lead changes resulting in a 7-6 High Desert lead in the bottom of the 9th. A Brett Booth sac fly sent the game to extras and a J.D. Davis bases-loaded single to right provided the walk-off run in an 8-7 victory. Michael Feliz threw 4.2IP, 5H/5ER, 4K:1BB; Keegan Yuhl allowed 4H/2ER, 3K:1BB in 1.2IP; Chris Cotton inherited a bases-loaded jam and got out of it with 2.1IP, 0H/0ER, 4K:2BB; Albert Minnis allowed 1H/0ER, 3K:2BB in 3.1IP.

Danry Vasquez was 4x6 with a home run, walk, and 2RBI; A.J. Reed was 3x5 with a double, homer, walk, and an RBI; Jack Mayfield was 2x5 with a walk; Brett Phillips went 1x5 with two walks; Brett Booth went 1x3 with the game-tying RBI and two walks.

Man of the Match: Danry Vasquez

Quad Cities (31-8)

Just ridiculous. After starting the season at a solid 12-5, the River Bandits have gone 19-3 in their last 22 games, including last night's 8-5 win at Clinton. Francis Martes threw 4IP, 2H/1ER, 5K:3BB; Kevin Comer allowed 7H/4ER, 2K:2BB in 4.2IP; and Aaron Greenwood got a strikeout for the last out of the game.

Derek Fisher was 3x5 with three doubles; Nick Tanielu was 2x4 with a triple and 3RBI; Jamie Ritchie (2B, 2RBI), Mott Hyde (BB), and Ryan Bottger (RBI) each added two hits.

Man of the Match: Derek Fisher
