A few big home runs highlight the night.

Pair of Three-Run Shots Not Enough in 8-7 Loss

You can't always explain baseball. Usually, one three-run shot puts you in a good position to win a game. Jon Singleton did just that in  the first inning. But, Brad Peacock gave up six runs and Fresno combined to give up seven combined between the first and third innings. But, Matt Duffy stepped up to tie it with a three-run shot of his own in the fifth inning only for Fresno to give up the go-ahead run in the next half-inning.

Tanielu Homers In Double-A Debut; Hooks win 4-3

I've been banging the Nick Tanielu drum for awhile for the simple fact that he just hits. He doesn't walk much at all but he makes contact and drives the ball. The problem has been mostly in the power department that is a glaring problem. He's performed better this season, but take that with a grain of Lancaster salt. This was his first game in Double-A and already knocked a home run. Maybe there's some real power developing for him.

Bower Struggles in JetHawks 8-3 Loss

Matt Bower has been one of those prospects that the Astros tend to do well with in that they are "no named" players and their performance forces you to take notice. Tyler White and Jose Altuve are great examples. He had 28 strikeouts in an out less than 20 innings for Quad Cities before getting promoted to Lancaster. In his first game for the JetHawks, he struck out ten hitters. That's impressive to say the least. Last night....not so hot.

Really no other way to say it...

But, Arturo Michelin made his full-season debut.
