The San Antonio Missions had 12 hits including three home runs to beat the Sacramento River Cats 8-4 Tuesday at Wolff Stadium.
Trent Grisham homered twice and hit for the cycle and Hernan Perez had two hits including a home run. Grisham has 13 home runs since moving up from Double-A on June 20. Perez had five home runs in the last eight games.
David Freitas had two hits, walked once and scored twice.
Corbin Burnes started on the mound for the Missions and went two innings. The plan is for him to get reliever type innings, so the short was expected.
Thomas Jankins, usually a starter, had the longest stint on the mound. Jankins (10-3) went five innings and allowed three runs on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks to earn the win.
Alex Wilson and Angel Perdomo pitched one inning each to finish the game.
The San Antonio Missions hit four home runs including back-to-back shots by Mauricio Dubon and Cory Spangenberg to beat the Iowa Cubs 10-2 Sunday at Wolff Stadium.
Iowa scored one run in the top of the first to lead briefly but only scored one run the rest of the way.
Missions starting pitcher Thomas Jankins, who picked up the win, also drove in San Antonio’s first run with a line drive to left in the third inning. Jankins and Trent Grisham scored later in the inning and the Missions had all the runs it turned out they needed.
Lucas Erceg hit his 11th home run of the season, a two-run blast in the fourth to make it 5-2.
Dubon hit his 12th home run of the season and Spangenberg hit his seventh back-to-back in the fifth inning.
Blake Allemand added his second home run of the season in the seventh inning.
The Missions finished with 11 hits.
Jankins (8-2) pitched six innings and gave up two runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and one walk.
Jon Olczak, who was activated off the injured list earlier in the day, pitched two innings and Donnie Hart pitched the ninth to finish the game for the Missions.
Mauricio Dubon, David Freitas and Tyler Saladino homered to give the San Antonio Missions a 5-4 victory over the New Orleans Baby Cakes on Thursday at Wolff Stadium.
Dubon hit his third home run of the season in the bottom of the first inning for the first run of the game.
Freitas, who leads the Missions in hitting with a .359 average, hit his first homer of the season in the second inning. That gave the Missions a 2-0 lead.
Tyler Saladino added a massive two-run homer in the fifth inning. It was a 476-foot shot over the big wall in straightaway center field.
Missions starting pitcher Thomas Jankins (2-1) got the win. He went six innings and allowed two unearned runs on four hits with three strikeouts and one walk. He also had an RBI single in the fourth inning.
