You know a game has got off to a bad start when the first inning has a couple of walks, a couple stolen bases, a hit batsmen, and a throwing error by the catcher. Medlin would manage to escape the first with just the one run scored, thanks to no hits allowed, but that bad first inning would be an omen of things to come. The Grizzlies would later put up a 3 run inning in 3rd, would talk on another run with a solo hr in the fourth, then put up another 4 runs in the 5th. The Aces clawed back through out the game, but after the Grizzlies put up another run in the eighth, and had a big 5 run 9th inning, the game was out of reach at that point. Socrates Brito went 5-5 with a couple runs scored, Anthony Recker was 2-4 with a couple doubles and walk, while Ildemaro Vargas was 1-4 with a double and two walks. Joey Krehbiel had a solid couple innings pitched with zero runs allowed, the only one to do so, and three strikeouts.
Jacksonville jumped out to a 3-0 lead after scoring a run in the top of the first inning, and two more in the top of the third. Jackson didn’t get a run on the board until the bottom of the seventh, and made it 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth, but they just couldn’t muster enough offense to win the game. 1B/LF Rudy Flores had the best night at the plate for the Generals, going 1-2 with a double and two walks, scoring one of the generals two runs. RF Jay Gonzales also went 1-4 and stole his 5th base of the year already. Starter Michael Dimock was impressive in the sixth, striking out two and allowing no hits in his inning of work. As was Colin Poche in his inning of work in the ninth inning, as he struck out side while working around a hit.
The game got started with Randall Delgado working a scoreless inning of work in his rehab assignment, followed by Visalia jumping ahead to a 1-0 lead after Mark Karaviotis hit a solo homerun in the bottom of the inning. Emilio Vargas took over from Delgado from pitching five solid innings, striking out 5 while walking 3, but only only allowing one earned run on on 3 hits. The Quakes would answer back in the sixth with a run, tying the game. The rawhide would then answer back with four runs in the bottom of the seventh and two more in the eighth, and that was the ball game. Anfernee Grier had an impressive night, going 3-4 with a stolen base, as did Drew Ellis, who went 2-4 with a double. Daulton Varsho and Marcus Wilson both were hitless, while Pavin Smith did not play
The Cougars and LumberKings finally took the field after having snow and cold cancel the last two day’s games, only for the Cougars to lose the home opener. Mack Lemieux had a rough start, going 3.2 IP, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks and 2 hrs, as did reliever Jake Winston who allowed 3 runs on 3 hits in his two inning pitched. At the plate SS Jasrado Chisholm had a strong day at the plate going 2-4 with a double. The only Cougar to get on base more than once was 2B Yan Sanchez, who went 1-4 with a walk.
