Fresno (12-11)

Fresno and Tacoma traded runs with the Rainiers taking a 4-3 lead in the 7th, and then Fresno got three in the 8th and held on for a 6-5 win, avoiding a four-game sweep against the Mariners' Triple-A team. Asher Wojciechowski threw 6IP, 7H/3ER, 4K:2BB; Jordan Jankowski allowed 2H/1ER, 2K:1BB in 1IP; Tommy Shirley allowed a hit in the 8th, and James Hoyt got his 4th save, but allowed 3H/1ER, 2K:0BB.

Nolan Fontana was 2x3 with 2BB and a stolen base; Domingo Santana was 2x4 with a solo homer and the go-ahead three-run homer in the 8th, 4RBI, and a walk. Max Stassi hit his 2nd HR of the season. Jon Singleton was 1x3 with 2BB, and Andrew Aplin was 1x4 with a walk and a stolen base.

Man of the Match: Domingo Santana

Corpus (13-10)

Corpus had a 3-0 lead heading into the 4th, but Frisco scored four in the 4th and added two in the 9th to beat Corpus 6-3. Kyle Westwood allowed 4H/4ER, 3K:2BB in 5IP, and Aaron West allowed 4H/2ER, 2K:1BB in 4IP.

Carlos Correa was all over the place, going 3x4 with a double, walk, two stolen bases, and committing his first error of the season. At 22 games, he's now hitting .371/.451/.697. Telvin Nash was 1x5 with a two-run homer, Tyler White was 1x3 with a solo shot - his first of the season. Brandon Meredith was 1x3 with two walks and an outfield assist; Conrad Gregor was 1x2 with 2BB.

Man of the Match: Carlos Correa

Lancaster (11-13)

A 5-run Modesto 3rd inning was answered with but a single run as Lancaster gets swept in a 7-1 loss. And all five of those 3rd inning runs were unearned, so Troy Scribner gets a line of 2.1IP, 1H/5R (0ER), 3K:1BB; Chris Cotton gave up 2H/0ER, 2K:0BB in 2.2IP; Ambiorix De Leon allowed 3H/2ER, 2K:0BB in 2IP; and Albert Minnis gets a clean 8th inning in his second game in Lancaster.

Not much doing on the offensive side of the plate. Brett Phillips was 2x4 (now hitting .358/.390/.621), and J.D. Davis (who had a rough two-error game) hit a solo home run. Jose Fernandez was 1x2 with a walk. Danry Vasquez was 1x4 with a stolen base.

Man of the Match: Brett Phillips

Quad Cities (18-6)

So here come the River Bandits, trouncing Wisconsin 10-1. Joe Musgrove threw 5IP, 5H/0ER, 3K:0BB. In his five starts (25.2IP) Musgrove has allowed 22H/2ER, 23K:1BB for an 0.70 ERA/0.90 WHIP. Bryan Radziewski allowed 4H/1ER, 4K:2BB in 4IP.

Six River Bandits had two hits each: Bobby Boyd (2B, 3B, RBI), Jamie Ritches (3B, BB, RBI), Derek Fisher (2B), Mott Hyde (2B, BB, 2RBI), Nick Tanielu (BB, 2RBI), and Kristian Trompiz (3B, 2RBI).

Man of the Match: Joe Musgrove
