It's a good thing the Hooks built up that 8-0 lead by the end of the 4th, because they needed every run in an 8-7 win over Midland. Michael Feliz allowed 5H/6ER, 2K:3BB in 4IP; Travis Ballew allowed all three runners he inherited from Feliz to score, plus 2H/1ER, 0K:1BB in an out-less outing; Chris Devenski improved to 7-0 with 4IP, 3H/0ER, 6K:2BB, and Jandel Gustave allowed 2H/0ER, 1K:0BB in a nerve-wracking 9th inning.
The Hooks got 12 hits: two from Tony Kemp (BB), Teoscar Hernandez (RBI), Andrew Aplin (3B, RBI), Conrad Gregor (2B, 3B), and Roberto Pena (2B, 2RBI). Colin Moran and Jon Kemmer added a hit and an RBI each.
Man of the Match: Chris Devenski
Another crazy one in Lancaster as they blew a 2-0 lead and a 9-4 lead to go to extras before scoring two in the 10th at Visalia for an 11-9 win.
