YotD: May 13

Round Rock
The Express scored five runs in the 8th and 9th, but it wasn't enough to over come an 11-2 lead Fresno built up (Josh Muecke: 3.2IP, 12H/11ER, 4K:1BB, 4HR). That said, Edwin Maysonet was 2x3 with a double and a run. But your YotD goes to Brian Bogusevic who hit a 3-run double. Manzella and Kata also had two hits each.

Corpus Christi
The Hooks enjoyed a 7-run 2nd inning, coasting to a 13-6 victory over Frisco. Drew Meyer and Mark Ori had three hits each, while Collin DeLome, Jhon Florentino, Brian Esposito, and Vladimir Sutil each had multi-hit games. YotD, though, goes to Drew Locke, 2x4 with two runs scored, two RBI, and a homer. His .388 average is 3rd in the Texas League. Brandon Backe went 7IP with 8H/4ER, 3K:0BB in another rehab start. 57 of his 77 pitches were for strikes as Backe retired 21 of the 28 batters he faced.

Chris Johnson went 2x4 with two doubles and two RBI and Jason Castro was 2x3 with two doubles and two RBI himself to earn YotD honors in a 7-4 win over Lake Elsinore. Shuck, Gaston, and Moresi had two-hit games.

Jordan Lyles is your hard-luck loser, throwing 5IP with 4H/2ER with 9K:2BB in a 3-1 loss to Charleston, the lone run coming on a 9th inning homer by Ronald Ramirez. Charleston switch-pitcher Pat Venditte got the save for Charleston.
