Summaries

Saint Paul at Quebec

  • 4/5: STP 7, QUE 6 (W: Martinez (1-0), L: Melancon (0-1), S: Soria (1))
    • Quebec’s bullpen could not hold a 6-3 lead in the late innings. After a 2-run 7th, a sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Josmil Pinto and Billy Hamilton RBI single brought the Saints back.
  • 4/6: STP 7, QUE 6 (W: Pomeranz (1-0), L: Melancon (0-2), S: Soria (2))
    • For the second straight night, Saint Paul came back against Quebec in the late innings from a 6-3 deficit. This time, it was Jacoby Ellsbury with an RBI single and solo homer to get the Saints close, and 9th-inning doubles by Kole Calhoun and Kyle Seager that keyed the comeback.
  • 4/7: STP 3, QUE 2 (11) (W: Mujica (1-0), L: Odorizzi (0-1), S: Pomeranz (1))
    • Saint Paul was down, 2-0, after six innings, but came back again for the sweep over Quebec. The Saints tied the game in the 7th on a Chase Headley sacrifice fly and Billy Hamilton single off Quebec starter Carlos Carrasco, before winning the game on a Jacoby Ellsbury RBI single.

Las Vegas at Cleveland

  • 4/5: CLE 3, LV 2 (W: Kershaw (1-0), L: Keuchel (0-1), S: Allen (1))
    • Jose Bautista homered off reliever Dallas Keuchel in the bottom of the 8th to give the Wahoos the winning margin. Clayton Kershaw left a tie game after allowing two runs on four hits in eight innings.
  • 4/6: CLE 6, LV 3 (15) (W: Clippard (1-0), L: Neshek (0-1))
    • A 2-2 game heading into the 15th suddenly became a home run derby, with Kris Bryant going deep to get the Flashers a short-lived lead and Anthony Rizzo hitting a walk-off three-run shot in a 4-run 15th
  • 4/7: LV 5, CLE 4 (W: Keuchel (1-1), L: Betances (0-1), S: Kimbrel (1))
    • Las Vegas got their first win of the year after coming back from a 4-0 deficit, thanks to an Eric Hosmer grand slam in the 7th inning and a run in the 8th manufactured on three pitches. Eaton was hit by Cleveland reliever Dellin Betances’s first pitch leading off the 8th, stole second on the next pitch, came around to score on Cabrera’s single.

Gastonia at Lawrence

  • 4/5: LWR 5, GST 2 (W: Lester (1-0), L: Wood (0-1), S: Cishek (1))
    • The 5th inning started with Lawrence up 1-0 and ended up with Lawrence winning, 3-2, after Gastonia’s Starling Marte and Lawrence’s Hanley Ramirez hitting two-run shots. A Michael Brantley single and Adam Jones sacrifice fly gave Lawrence some insurance in the 8th.
  • 4/6: LWR 13, GST 2 (W: Latos (1-0), L: Cole (0-1), S: Buehrle (1))
    • The Welk won in a laugher by piling on runs in the middle innings and the solid pitching of Mat Latos and Mark Buehrle. Lead-off hitter Jason Kipnis drove in five runs, while Adrian Beltre went 4-for-5 and scored four runs.  Latos went six innings and allowed two runs on six hits and Buehrle held Gastonia hitless in three innings of relief work.
  • 4/7: LWR 3, GST 2 (13) (W: Gonzalez (1-0), L: Nathan (0-1))
    • Lawrence SS Andrelton Simmons hit a walk-off homer to lead off the home half of the 13th to secure a sweep for Lawrence over Gastonia. Reliever Joe Nathan was entering his third inning of work when Simmonds took him deep.  Gastonia starter Drew Smyly pitched very well, going eight innings and permitting two runs on six hits.

San Diego at Long Island

  • 4/5: SD 10, LI 2 (W: Harvey (1-0), L: Strasburg (0-1))
    • Matt Harvey went 7 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits, striking out four. Six Stat hitters had multiple hits, led by leadoff hitter Carlos Gomez, who had three hits and drove in four, but Stat hitters also combined for 14 strikeouts.
  • 4/6: SD 5, LI 3 (W: Bumgarner (1-0), L: Price (0-1), S: Chapman (1))
    • Albert Pujols hit a grand slam in the third for most of the Stat offense and Madison Bumgarner did the rest, permitting five hits and two runs (1 ER) in six innings, striking out nine.
  • 4/7: LI 5, SD 3 (W: Santana (1-0), L: Cashner (0-1), S: Uehara (1))
    • Long Island avoided the sweep by breaking a 2-2 tie in the 6th inning on a bases loaded, 3-run double by Jose Altuve. Altuve drove home Bryce Harper, Michael Cuddyer, and Ben Zobrist, who all got on base with singles.  Jason Hammel gave up the Altuve double, but San Diego starter Andrew Cashner was charged with all three runs and suffered the loss.

Dearborn at Omaha

  • 4/5: DEA 3, OMA 2 (W: Scherzer (1-0), L: Wainwright (0-1), S: Rosenthal (1))
    • All of the game’s runs were scored in the fifth inning. Three straight hits scored the three runs for Dearborn, as Elvis Andrus and Mookie Betts drilled doubles before Victor Martinez drove home the eventual game-winner with a single. Omaha battled back in the home half of the 5th for two runs, but the Dearborn bullpen pitched three scoreless frames to hold the lead.
  • 4/6: OMA 5, DEA 3 (W: Cueto (1-0), L: Hutchison (0-1), S: Robertson (1))
    • Marlon Byrd broke a 3-3 tie in the 7th inning with an RBI single to plate Wilin Rosario, then came around to score on a fielder’s choice to give Omaha the two-run victory. Dearborn got two runners on in the 8th and 9th, but could not get any closer.
  • 4/7: DEA 13, OMA 9 (W: Feliz (1-0), L: Nelson (0-1))
    • Ten pitchers appeared in this game and only two of them managed to escape without allowing a run. Dearborn starter Doug Fister allowed six runs in five innings, while Omaha’s Gio Gonzalez was pulled in the fourth after giving up five runs.  Omaha came back on Dearborn with a 5-run 6th to tie the game at eight, but Dearborn took the game over the late innings, scoring in each of the last three innings.

Bourbon Street at San Francisco

  • 4/5: NO 4, SF 2 (18) (W: Miley (1-0), L: Wilson (0-1))
    • Bourbon Street’s Jose Abreu and San Francisco’s Aramis Ramirez traded 8th-inning, two-run homers for the only scoring during regulation. In the 18th, it was a war of attrition, as C.J. Wilson wild pitch scored Corey Dickerson for the deciding run, and the next batter, Marcell Ozuna, successfully executed a suicide squeeze bunt for some insurance.
  • 4/6: SF 9, NO 8 (W: Storen (1-0), L: Miley (1-1), S: Holland (1))
    • San Francisco had a lead, lost it, then came back in a topsy-turvy game. The Sour Dohs had a 6-2 lead, but Bourbon Street scored six runs in the 7th, keyed by an Evan Gattis three-run double.  San Francisco tied the game in the 8th on Jason Heyward’s two-out two-run double and scored on Alex Gordon’s go-ahead single.
  • 4/7: SF 7, NO 6 (W: Verlander (1-0), L: Pineda (0-1), S: Peralta (1))
    • Bourbon Street managed to get close to San Francisco, but could not get the tying run across and lost by a single run. San Francisco was down 7-3, but plated three runs in the 7th off Justin Verlander.  Matt Kemp tried to score the tying run for Bourbon Street on an Evan Gattis double, but was thrown out at the plate.  The Bluesmen left the bases loaded in the 8th and stranded Kemp at second base to end the game.
