Eddie's Farm: July 21

Eddie's Farm goes 4-2 yesterday; double-header with Round Rock, Lexington and Tri-City didn't play.

Round Rock
Game 1 of the double-header, a completion of a suspended game back on June 11, saw Round Rock finish the game off with a 5-1 win over Albuquerque. Jason Smith had a two-run homer, while Abercrombie and Bogusevic had two hits. Josh Muecke threw 5.1IP, 5H/1ER, 3K:3BB while Geary got his first save for Round Rock.

Game 2 was a 7-inning affair in which Albuquerque was held to five hits, yet still won the game 3-1. Two of Round Rock's three hits were from Tommy Manzella, who raised his average to .281, two points behind Bogusevic, who was 1x3. Mark McLemore threw 6IP, 3H/2ER, 4K:2BB and Capellan gave up 1ER in 1IP.

Corpus jumped out to a 7-2 lead after two innings, and held on for a 10-7 win. Wladimir Sutil, Jason Castro and Jimmy Van Ostrand each had three hits, Castro enjoyed a single, double, and a triple for 4RBI, while JVO had 3RBI, and the Hooks were 8x18 with RISP. Wilton Lopez took the win, despite getting popped for 5IP, 12H/6ER. Evan Englebrook got his first save for the Hooks with a scoreless 9th.

Lancaster finally got one over on Stockton, winning 5-1. Jon Gaston did what Jon Gaston does, and that's hit another pair of homers - his 26th/27th of the season. Leandro Cespedes seems to have found his groove again, tossing 6IP, 6H/0ER (1R), 3K:2BB, and Jordan Powell threw 3IP, 0H/0ER ball for the save.

Despite allowing three runs in the final two innings, Greeneville bent but didn't break in a 5-4 win over Bluefield. Frank Almonte hit a two-run shot in the 6th, and Jonathan Meyer was 2x4. Jose Cisnero threw 5IP, 2H/0ER (1R), 4K:0BB for the win. Three errors - one by Jiovanni Mier (his 6th) and two by Jose Altuve (his 4th/5th) led to three unearned runs.

GCL Astros
The Gastros got absolutely smoked yesterday, losing 15-0 to the GCL Marlins. The Gastros got five hits, and committed six erros in the loss. Euris Quezada dropped to 0-5 despite giving up 2ER in 5IP on 1H/1BB. That means the bullpen took over for 4IP, 11H/13R (11ER). 4th rounder Telvin Nash was 0x4 and is hitting .140 on the season. Good stat, though: Nash is hitting .375 in night games...
