Eddie's Farm: July 16

Eddie's Farm goes 3-4 last night as everyone plays...

Round Rock
The Express scored five runs in the 7th to take a 5-4 lead, but OKC got one back in the top of the 8th, and the Express ultimately fell in 14 to Oklahoma City 7-5. Lots of ABs to go around, John Gall was 3x6 and Bogusevic, Manzella, and Yordany got two hits each. Manzella was The Man though, getting a 2-out grand slam in the 8th. McLemore threw 6IP, 8H/4ER, 4K:0BB, Geary threw a scoreless 7th. Casey Daigle gave up the 8th inning run, and Jeremy Johnson got the loss in a 4IP, 3H/2ER outing on OKC's C Kevin Richardson's second homer of the game.

Corpus Christi
Corpus got two in the 8th and one in the 9th - a walk-off - to defeat Frisco 3-2. Jhon Florentino and Mitch Einertson had two hits each. Drew Locke and Jason Castro got RBI singles to tie the game with two outs in the 8th, and Einertson's second hit scored Collin DeLome for the walk-off. Wilton Lopez threw 6IP, 6H/2ER, 4K:0BB and Erick Abreu pushed his record to 3-0, giving up a hit and a walk in 3IP for the win.

Jon Gaston was a double short of the cycle in a 3x4, 2RBI game as the JetHawks whooped High Desert 9-4. Jack Shuck went 3x4, while Clemens, Cabral, Barnes, and Corrado each had two hits. Clemens had 3RBI and Brandon Barnes had a couple of RBIs himself. Leandro Cespedes threw 5IP, 3H/2ER, 5K:2BB. Also of note: Lancaster manager Wes Clements got tossed by the 1st base umpire in the 8th. Hooray!

Delmarva is a buzz-saw, and Lexington is running squarely through it, with the Delmarva Delmarvas getting four runs in the 6th for a 5-2 win over the Legends. Two hits each from Jay Austin and Michael Diaz accounted for most of the Legends' seven hits. Robert Bono got the loss with 5IP, 10H/5ER, 2K:0BB. Arcenio Leon (whoop whoop whoop) threw 2.1IP, didn't give up a hit, but walked four batters.

Erik Castro is starting to come around for the ValleyCats, hitting a 2-run shot in the 2nd inning as the ValleyCats beat State College 6-5 in 10 innings. Nick Stanley doubled in the bottom of the 10th (Ben Orloff running), Jake Goebbert was HBP, Castro sac'ed both runners over. State College reliever Marc Baca intentionally walked J.D. Martinez (a wise move) to load the bases, and with pinch-hitter Brian Kemp up, Baca threw a WP that scored Orloff. Let's hear it for walk-off WPs! Two hits from Wikoff, Dixon, Castro and Renzo Tello paced the ValleyCats. Brandt Walker got the start with 4IP, 3H/2ER, 4K:1BB, followed by 3IP of scoreless relief from Justin Fearnow and Antonio Noguera. Scott Migl and J.B. MacDonald gave up 3ER in 2IP, and Brendan Stines recorded the win with a scoreless 10th.

Greeneville took a 7-6 lead into the bottom of the 9th at Johnson City, and then got the Johnson as they scored twice in the bottom of the inning for an 8-7 win. Jonathan Meyer got hisself a 2-run double - his 4th of the season - while Oscar Figueroa was 2x3 with three runs, a solo homer, and 2RBI. Jose Cisnero threw 4IP, 7H/4ER, Dan Sarisky gave up 2ER in 2IP, and Nathan Pettus gave up a 2-run walk off homer in the bottom of the 9th for the loss.

GCL Astros
Rough night for the Gastros as they lose to the GCL Marlins 15-2. Nestor Santana got two of the Gastros' five hits. Three more errors led to three unearned runs. Euris Quezada gave up 6ER in 4IP for his 4th loss, and an ERA of 9.64.
