Result: The Quad Cities River Bandits ended a two-game road skid with a 5-3 Class A Midwest League victory over Lansing at Cooley Law School Stadium.

How it happened: Tied at one in the top of the seventh, the Bandits (3-4) took advantage of a fielding error on Tyler White's fly ball to center that scored two runs. QC's Conrad Gregor followed with an RBI single that scored White to give the Bandits a 4-1 lead over the Lugnuts (3-4).

On the mound: Evan Grills left with a no decision after pitching five solid innings for QC, giving up one run on five hits with five strikeouts. Michael Feliz picked up his first win of the season for the Bandits with two relief innings. Andrew Walter, QC's fourth pitcher, earned his first save of the season.

At the plate: The Bandits' Brett Phillips had three hits and Gregor had two as QC had just eight base hits. James Ramsay's double was the only extra-base hit for the winners.

Worth noting: Feliz, a Top 10 prospect for the Houston Astros, had a mixed outing while earning his first win. The 20-year-old right-hander pitched two innings, allowing two earned runs on three hits and struck out four.

Up next: The River Bandits continue their road trip, traveling to Midland, Mich., to play the Great Lakes Loons tonight. First pitch is at 5:05 p.m. (Central).
