Diamondbacks 18 Giants 9

The Diamondbacks answered a Giants late 5 run surge with 10runs of their own in the top of the 5th for the 18-9 win.  With the Dbacks down to their last out Dylan Drescher delivered the biggest hit of the night with a bases loaded 2 out single which knocked in 3 and put the Dbacks up for good.  Jack Higgs (5-5, 2B, HR, 5RBI) and Bubba LaChance both hit 2 run homers for the early lead.   Zach Fitzner (3-3, 2B, 2RBI), Thomas Natale (2-3, 1RBI), Caleb Bowe ( 3Runs),  and Connor LoPresti (2Runs) also delivered at the plate.  Drescher and Joe Molski both made fine defensive plays at third to keep it close.   

Indians 10 Athletics 8

In a game that could be described as a ROLLER COASTER RIDE, the Portland NAPA Indians prevailed over the A's with a 10-8 walk off victory.  Ryan Famiglietti, who minutes earlier surrendered a game tieing grand slam to Greg Brock redeemed himself with a two-out walk of single to end the game.

The A's jumped on the board in the first on a double by Andrew Reagan and a two run home run by Jake Pelligrinelli.  The Indians grabbed the lead in the bottom of the third.  Derek Frame reached base and was driven in by Ryan Famiglietti.  Julien Nicolas followed with a walk and Nick Brenchak doubled to drive in Famiglietti and Nicolas to make it 3-3.  Brenchak followed with a straight steal of home to give the Indians the lead 4-3.

In the bottom of the fourth the Tribe added to their lead.  Zach Lafreniere and Mitchell Cooper drew walks.  A single by Frame plated Lafreniere and a single by Famiglietti plated Michael Held, who was pinch running for Cooper.  Nicolas drove in Frame with a single and a Tristan Nevins single drove in Famiglietti to push the score to 8-3.

Derek Frame started on the hill and allowed no earned runs on two hits in four and 1/3 innings.  Robert Pimentel and Nevins both played well defensively.  Famiglietti came on in relief and picked up the win.  Lafreniere made a great play in left field to record the second out in the top of the fifth.  With the game seemingly in hand, the next four A's reached base.  After a questionable call (or "no call") Greg Brock made the most of a second chance and deposited the ball into the batting cage behind the left field fence for a grand slam.  The game was tied 8-8.

Due to time constraints the bottom of the fifth would be the last inning.  Gavin Greco lead off with a walk.  Timmy Halvorsen followed with a walk.  Frame moved the runners over with a fielder's choice.  Pimentel grounded to short and Ryan Ranney, pinch running for Greco, was gunned down at the plate by Michael Aresco.  That set the stage for Famiglietti, who hung tough, and hit a single to right field to score Halvorsen and Pimentel.
