Josh Fields: 1 IP, 1 ER, BB

James Hoyt: 1 IP, BB

This was a rough night for both the offense and the pitching staff. The staff gave up 3 homers in the first five innings and never really got it together until came in, and by that time, it was already too late. The offense, meanwhile, managed to score on a throwing error and an L.J. Hoes double. Any attempts at a rally were in vain. Don't expect this result that often, though. This is an experienced team sprinkled with Top 30 Prospects.

Corpus Christi Hooks 9, Springfield Cardinals (STL) 2

Tony Kemp: 1-5, R, K

Carlos Correa:  \2-5, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 2B, K

Colin Moran: 2-5, R, 2 RBI

Telvin Nash: 2-5, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1 2B, 1 HR

Conrad Gregor: 1-4, R, RBI, 2B

Teoscar Hernandez: 0-3, BB, 2 K

Jio Mier: 1-4, R, RBI

Josh Hader: 3 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K

Jandel Gustave: 2 IP, 1 H, BB

Chris Devenski: 4 IP, 4 H, 3 K

I have no idea how long this Corpus Christi team is just going to keep dominating everyone else. They have most of the people who were supposed to make Lancaster a crazy stacked team last year plus Telvin Nash and Jio Mier. Carlos Correa is burninating baseballs like Trogdor, and I have no doubt he'll keep this up. He also had another web gem last night as well, because why not? (I'm not going to mention Josh Hader's statline because he can do better.) Good luck, Texas League. You're gonna need it.

San Jose Giants (SFG) 8, Lancaster Jethawks 3

Brett Phillips: 0-5, K

James Ramsay: 3-5, R, RBI, 2B, 3B, 2 K, CS

A.J. Reed: 1-4, BB, K

J.D. Davis: 2-4, R, RBI, 2B, K

Ronnie Mitchell: 1-4, RBI, 2B, K

Jose Fernandez: 2-4, R, 2 K

Evan Grills: 3.1 IP, 8 H, 6 R (5 ER), BB, K

Gonzalo Sanudo: 3.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R (1 ER), 3 K

Frederick Tiburcio: 2 IP, 1 H, 2 K

Not a great offensive showing last night, but the Smash Bros., J.D. Davis and A.J. Reed, got their first hits of the season. I think they will find the Lancaster winds quite helpful soon enough. Also, good job to James Ramsay, who was easily the bright spot on the Jethawks. I'm not sure which pitcher stats we can trust, but Ks and BBs are usually real in Lancaster, so good job to both Sanudo and Tiburcio.

Also, Jethawks manager Omar Lopez was ejected in the 1st inning. The new guy is already showing off his temper.

Peoria Chiefs 4, Quad Cities River Bandits 1

Bobby Boyd: 2-4, K, CS

Ryan Bottger: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K

Sean McMullen: 1-3, R

Jamie Ritchie & Nick Tanielu: 1-4, K

Daniel Mengden: 4 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 HBP, 8 K

Keegan Yuhl: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R (1 ER)

Albert Minnis: 1 IP

This was not a good day for the offense today. They could only manage five hits--none for extra bases--and had no luck on the basepaths either, what with Jamie Ritchie and Bobby Boyd both caught stealing. Mengden had a great game as far as strikeouts went, but he was hit pretty hard, allowing five hits and inducing only one groundball out.

(Note: Today's recap was limited due to a lack of season stats. These should increase in size as time goes on.)
