    Quad Cities keeps chance of winning series alive with 3-2 win in Game 2

    DAVENPORT, Iowa (APRIL 16, 2013) – Having lost Game 1 of a doubleheader and been held to three hits through 11 innings against Clinton LumberKings pitching, the Quad Cities River Bandits awoke for a three-run rally in the fifth inning of Game 2 to take a 3-2, seven-inning win and split of Tuesday’s action in front of 1,024 at Modern Woodmen Park.

    LumberKings left-hander Scott DeCecco (0-1) allowed one hit and faced the minimum through 4 1/3 innings, but he issued a one-out walk to River Bandits designated hitter Rio Ruiz with one out in the fifth inning. Catcher Roberto Peña followed with a single, before right fielder Ariel Ovando grounded into a fielder’s choice for the second out. With runners at first and third base and two outs, second baseman Austin Elkins – the newest River Bandit – lined an RBI single to right field to cut the lead to 2-1. One batter later, third baseman Ryan Dineen drove a go-ahead, two-run double to the gap in right-center field, making it 3-2.

    River Bandits right-hander Michael Dimock (1-0) made the lead stand, as he tossed three perfect innings out of the bullpen and struck out four batters, including all three in the seventh and final inning. Dimock started the top of the fifth inning in relief of right-hander Daniel Minor, who allowed two runs on six hits, including a third-inning solo home run by left fielder Dario Pizzano. Minor walked two batters and struck out four.

    DeCecco worked all six innings for the LumberKings (5-8), as he allowed five hits and three earned runs, walked two batters and struck out five. Clinton out-hit the River Bandits for a second consecutive game.

    The River Bandits (8-3) had seven total hits in the two games but got a 2-for-3 performance in Game 2 from first baseman Jesse Wierzbicki.

    The River Bandits play the series finale against the LumberKings on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Quad Cities will use a tandem of left-hander Colton Cain (0-0) and right-hander Mike Hauschild (0-0).

    Tuesday’s victory also means The Captain's Table at 4801 River Drive in Moline will offer The Captain's Table Victory Discount on Wednesday, April 17.

    Tandem pair allowed two runs in eight innings to tally third win

    DAVENPORT, Iowa (APRIL 14, 2013) – Right-hander Vincent Velasquez and left-hander Joe Bircher stayed perfect in the starting tandem set for the Quad Cities River Bandits, while third baseman Rio Ruiz blasted his first home run of the season to lead Quad Cities to a 3-2 victory over Peoria on Sunday afternoon in front of 1,402 at Modern Woodmen Park.

    For the second time this season and second consecutive game, an opponent put a run on the board before the River Bandits.  Peoria’s Michael Swinson led off the game with a stand-up triple down the line in right and came around to score on the next at bat on a single off the bat of Alex Mejia to plate the Chiefs with an early 1-0 lead.

    Ruiz belted a solo shot over the wall and onto the left field berm for the first home run of the 2013 season at Modern Woodmen Park to even up the score in the second.  With two outs, designated hitter Ryan Dineen walked and advanced to third on a single off the bat of shortstop Carlos Perdomo.  Perdomo stole second and second baseman Joe Sclafani walked to load the bases for center fielder Jordan Scott. Scott worked Peoria starter and former River Bandit Tyrell Jenkins (0-1) to a full count but struck out looking to end the inning.

    Quad Cities (7-2) broke the tie with two runs on three hits in the fifth. Perdomo lined a single up the middle to start the frame. With Perdomo running on a pitch, Sclafani connected on a line-drive single to left, allowing Perdomo to take third ahead of Swinson’s throw, which allowed Sclafani to reach second. With Scott at the plate, skipper Omar Lopez called for a squeeze for the fourth time this season. Scott laid down a sacrifice bunt along first-base line, scoring Perdomo and sending Sclafani to third.  First baseman Jesse Wierzbicki laced an RBI single to score Sclafani and extend his own hit streak to six games. Perdomo was the only River Bandit with two hits. Jenkins allowed all three Bandits runs off six hits, walked three and struck out one.

    Peoria (4-5) drew within one run in the eighth against Bircher. Mejia reached on an error by Sclafani, and back-to-back singles by second baseman Breyvic Valera and first baseman Jordan Walton loaded the bases for designated hitter Patrick Wisdom. Bircher got Wisdom to ground into a 6-4-3 double play, allowing Mejia to score. The Bandits’ southpaw got Ildemaro Vargas to ground out to escape the jam.

    As the starter in the tandem for a second time, Velasquez (2-0) allowed one run on three hits, struck out one and did not issue a walk in five innings.  His partner in the tandem rotation, Bircher, allowed one unearned run on three hits and struck out two in three innings.  John Neely followed in the ninth inning, allowing a one-out single by center fielder Charlie Tilson before inducing a ground-ball double play by pinch hitter Casey Rasmus to give Neely his first save.

    The victory also means The Captain's Table at 4801 River Drive in Moline will offer The Captain's Table Victory Discount on Tuesday, April 16. Anyone who mentions the River Bandits victory can receive a free appetizer or dessert with the purchase of two lunches or dinners with beverages on Tuesday, April 16.

    BANDITS BATS COME ALIVE IN FIRST HOME WIN PDF Print E-mail

    Quad Cities and Peoria exchange lead four times in second meeting

    DAVENPORT, Iowa (APRIL 13, 2013) – For the first time during the 2013 campaign, the River Bandits were beat to the scoreboard by an opponent, but they were able to secure an 8-6 victory over the Peoria Chiefs for their first home win of the season on Saturday night in front of 1,391 at Modern Woodmen Park.

    The Chiefs (4-4) got on the board behind a trio of former River Bandits in the second off Quad Cities starter Jordan Jankowski. Center fielder Nick Martini, catcher Geoff Klein and right fielder Michael Swinson provided RBI singles against their former team to give Peoria the lead at 3-0.

    The Bandits’ bats came alive in the third to take the lead against former River Bandit left-hander Dail Villanueva. Left fielder Jordan Scott walked, shortstop Carlos Perdomo reached on an error, and center fielder Teoscar Hernandez singled to extend a six-game hitting streak and load the bases. Second baseman Joe Sclafani followed with a sacrifice fly to right. First baseman Jesse Wierzbicki then wrapped a two-run, game-tying triple down the line in right to score Perdomo and Hernandez. Wierzbicki scored the go-ahead run on a fielder’s choice off the bat of third baseman Rio Ruiz. Villanueva gave up two earned runs on three hits in three innings

    Jankowski lasted one out into the next inning, giving the ball to right-hander Gera Sanchez, who pitched 1 2/3 shutout innings to bridge the gap to left-hander Brian Holmes (1-0), schedule to pitch in the tandem Saturday night.

    Holmes had a shaky start in the sixth, with two hit batters and a two-run double by Chiefs designated hitter Ildemaro Vargas that made it 5-4. Two batters later, left fielder Breyvic Valera would slice a triple down the line in right to drive in Vargas for a 6-4 Peoria lead.

    In the bottom half, the River Bandits rallied for the lead. Backstop Jobduan Morales singled, and a one-out single by Scott was misplayed by Valera to allow runners to second and third. Morales raced home uncontested on a passed ball by Klein. Shortstop Carlos Perdomo then walked to chase right-hander Jhonny Polanco (0-1). Right-hander Zach Petrick entered to face left fielder Ryan Dineen, who pushed a bunt back to the mound to tie the game. After second baseman Joe Sclafani singled, Wierzbicki struck out swinging, but Klein threw wild to first base for the put out, allowing Dineen to score the go-ahead run for a 7-6 advantage.

    Perdomo, with help from the Chiefs defense, tacked on an insurance run in the eighth.  The Venezuelan singled, stole second, advanced to third when Klein overthrew second, and then scored when Martini’s throw to third was wild. Holmes hardly needed the insurance, as he retired the final 10 batters of the game to finish four innings and earn the victory, which also means The Captain's Table at 4801 River Drive in Moline will offer The Captain's Table Victory Discount on Sunday, April 14. Anyone who mentions the River Bandits victory can receive a free appetizer or dessert with the purchase of two lunches or dinners with beverages on Sunday, April 14.
