QUAD-CITES 6, CEDAR RAPIDS 2: Left-hander Josh Hader made his River Bandits debut a good one.

In his first outing with the Houston Astros organization after a trade from Baltimore, Hader hurled six shutout innings, allowing only one hit and two baserunners against the Kernels.

Bandits shorstop Carlos Correa had his third straight three-hit game and scored twice and third baseman Rio Ruiz had a two-run, first-inning single as the Bandits scored in each of the first three innings.

The victory moved Quad Cities (26-16 second half, 64-47 overall) to within a half game of the first-place Kernels.

Hader, acquired by the Astros organization as part of a July 31 trade for major league pitcher Bud Norris, posted his only two strikeouts on the first two batters of the game.

Cedar Rapids scored its only runs in the ninth inning against reliever Jamaine Cotton, who recorded his first save.

Prior to Monday's game, Quad-Cities made roster moves involving eight players. Ruiz came off the temporarily inactive list and three 2013 draft picks joined the River Bandits from short-season Tri-City.

The new additions are fifth-round pick Tony Kemp, a second baseman from Vanderbilt who had two hits in Monday's game, and pitchers Pat Christensen and Zach Morton. Outfielder Terrell Joyce was placed on the temporary inactive list, outfielder Dan Gulbransen and pitcher Jordan Jankowski were promoted to high-A Lancaster and pitcher Juri Perez was unconditionally released.

CLINTON 12, KANE COUNTY 4: Midwest League player of the week Ketel Marte continued his hot streak, collecting three more hits and driving in three more runs.

Dario Pizzano added a three-run home run in the fourth inning and Alfredo Morales also collected three hits for the LumberKings, who collected 13 hits in the win.
