Allow me to introduce myself to you all again in case you have forgotten who I am since I go into a quasi-hibernation for the off-season. I'm subber10. I'll be much more active now.

But, that's not what you care about. You care about what happened last night.

Fresno Starts Off New Relationship with 2-1 Win

No better way to start a new relationship than to give the hometown fans a win. Brad Peacock's start was the major focal point in this game and it was not as good of quality as he probably hoped. Overall, he limited runs, which was great. But, if you watched his delivery, you saw he was all over the place. Rushed. Off balance. Timing issues. He was rusty to say the least. He bounced several pitches that should never have been anywhere near the dirt.

  • Brad Peacock-4 2/3 IP, 0 H, 0R, 5 BB, 2 SO, 3/6 GO/AO, 87/40 P/S
  • Jordan Jankowski-1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • Jake Buchanan-4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO, 7/0 GO/AO
  • Nolan Fontana SS-0-2, 2 BB, SB
  • Jon Singleton 1B-2-3
  • Matt Dominguez 3B-1-3, 2B

Tony Kemp Shines in CC Opening Night 9-4 Win

Tony Kemps near perfect night is by far the highlight but don't let it overshadow the multiple standout nights. I do want to highlight one other player. Emanuel's night was nothing special by any means. He had a very rough first inning that makes the overall outing to look quite rough. However, the six groundouts to just one flyout is something to take notice of. He has phenomenal control but has lacked an elite GB% and command. It's a big knock and something that has to be improved on with his quality of stuff. So, this MIGHT be a step in that direction.

  • Kent Emanuel- 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO, 6/1 GO/AO, 75/45 P/S
  • Mitch Lambson-2 1/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO, 2/2 GO/AO
  • Angel Baez-3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 2/4 GO/AO
  • Tony Kemp 2B-4/5, BB, SB
  • Carlos Correa SS-1-4, 2B, BB, SO
  • Telvin Nash DH-2-5, 2B, SO
  • Tyler Heineman C-2-4, 2B, BB
  • Conrad Gregor 1B-3-5, SO
  • Teoscar Hernandez CF-2-5, 2B, SO, OF Assist
  • Brandon Meredith RF-2-4, HR, BB, SO-Starting out in BEAST MODE

Chase McDonald Continues Playoff Greatness in 3-2 Win

Chase McDonald was promoted from QC to Lancaster for the last game of the JetHawks' regular season and them proceeded to dominate in the Cal League Playoffs. Well, he continued to rake on Opening Day as he hit two doubles, included a ground-rule double. Between McDonald, A.J. Reed, and J.D. Davis, the 3-4-5 hitters could easily make the Jon Gaston and Koby Clemens show look like teeball. CC may be the most talented team, but this group of hitters may be the most exciting group with those Lancaster winds.

  • Brian Holmes-3 1/3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 SO, 1 HR, 3/0 GO/AO
  • Tyler Brunnemann-1 2/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • Edison Frias-4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 SO, 6/1 GO/AO
  • Brett Phillips CF-2-5, 3B, SO
  • Chase McDonald DH-2-4, 2 2B, 2 SO

Offense Leads QC to 7-3 Win

The man of the game is Sean McMullen. That should make you LSU fans quite happy. He hit a two-run home run that lead the team to a win. He only hit two home runs after being drafted last year. He's a little undersized but he knows how to hit. He played mostly as a DH in college and continued that trend last night.

  • Chris Lee-4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 1 SO, 8/1 GO/AO, 68/42 P/S
  • Kevin Comer-4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO, 8/1 GO/AO, 51/31 P/S
  • Ryan Thompson-1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • Bobby Boyd LF-1-3, 2B, BB, CS
  • Derek Fisher CF-1-2, 3 BB, SB
