It started out at a fairly pedestrian pace, Fresno and OKC exchanging runs in the first, and then Fresno taking a 2-1 lead in the 2nd...and then Fresno popping off for nine runs in the 4th and rolling up Oklahoma City with a 14-1 win. Asher Wojciechowski threw 8IP, 5H/1R (0ER), 6K:1BB and Jonas Dufek threw a perfect 9th.
Alex Presley straight went off: 6x7, three doubles and a three-run homer for 5RBI total. Nolan Fontana was 3x4 with a double and a grand slam - his 2nd homer of the year; Robbie Grossman was 2x4 with three walks; Matt Duffy (2 2B, BB, 2RBI), Jon Singleton (2B, 2BB, 2RBI), and Joe Sclafani (BB) had two hits each. The Grizzlies racked up 18 hits - nine doubles, two home runs - 12 walks, and were 10x21 w/RISP.
Man of the Match: Wojciechowski and Presley
At some point, a JetHawks game that isn't crazy has to be considered a "crazy game." The JetHawks were down 8-3 at the end of the third inning, brought it back to 8-5 by the 5th, down 9-6 at the end of the 7th, and then surged ahead with four in the 8th and two more in the 9th to beat High Desert 12-10.
A&M's Daniel Mengden had a rough one, throwing 4.1IP, 10H/8ER, 5K:1BB; Keegan Yuhl allowed 3H/2R (1ER), 2K:1BB in 2.2IP. Tyler Brunnemann and Reymin Guduan (2K) retired the last six batters of the game.
James Ramsay was 3x5 with 3RBI; Derek Fisher (3B, 2SB, RBI), J.D. Davis (HR, BB, 3RBI), A.J. Reed (2B, 2BB, 2RBI), Jack Mayfield, and Jose Fernandez (2RBI) had two hits each; Chase McDonald was 1x3 with two walks and an RBI.
Man of the Match: J.D. Davis
