Eddie's Farm: July 9

Eddie's Farm goes 3-2 last night, after the Greeneville/Johnson City game is postponed.

Round Rock
The Express never led last night as the Sounds defeated Round Rock 5-3 in Nashville (again, couldn't go. And won't be able to go this weekend. I'm not happy.) Yordany and Abercrombie had two hits each - that's seven hits in his last 13 ABs for Yordany - and Chris Johnson hit his 4th homer of the season in the 6th inning. Jeremy Johnson went 5IP, 7H/4ER, 3K:2BB, while Geary went 2IP, 2H/1R (0ER) with 1K, but also two errors.

Corpus Christi
Andy Van Hekken and Corpus were all over Tulsa last night in a 7-1 win. Jhon Florentino was 4x5, while Jimmy Van Ostrand was 2x5 with 3RBI, and Drew Meyer was also 2x5. Drew Locke got a hit and two walks, and also drove in his 77th run of the season. AVH went 7IP, 2H/1ER, 5K:1BB while C-Lo and Danny Meszaros combined for 2IP, 1H/0ER, 1K.

The JetHawks scored three runs with 2 outs in the top of the 10th on Koby Clemens' three-run jack, and then held on as Rancho Cucamonga got two back in the bottom of the inning, but it obviously wasn't enough, and Lancaster won 8-7. Clemens was 2x4, and Suarez and Steele both had two hits each. Bryan Hallberg threw 4IP, 6H/2ER, 3K:3BB, while Abad threw 4.2IP, 5H/2ER with 5K. Chris Salamida got the win despite allowing 2ER in .1IP, and Jack Tilghman closed it out for his second save of the year.

Lexington broke out the offense for a 9-5 win over Savannah last night. David Duncan, who was just called up from Tri-City, got the win despite giving up 5ER in 5IP, and Henry Villar and Pat Urckfitz combined for 0ER in 4IP with 5K. Jay Austin and Ebert Rosario were 3x5 each. Albert Cartright hit a 3-run bomb in the 3rd inning, and Michael Diaz had 3RBI. Brian Pellegrini got two hits as well, as did Chris Jackson.

Despite taking a 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 9th, Lowell got two runs back for a 7-6 walkoff win. Brian Kemp and Russell Dixon both got two hits each, and Erik Castro hit a pinch-hit 2-run single in the 9th, with Brian Kemp knocking Castro in to take the lead. Then Pedro Gonzalez came in for the bottom of the ninth to close it out. Lowell's Christian Vazquez hit a game-tying one-out HR, and ValleyCats 3B Jhonny Medrano committed an error to let Ronald Bermudez reach first base. That's important, because Derrik Gibson then hit a popfly to CF Kemp, which would have ended the inning. But it didn't. And then Gonzalez walked the next three batters with the last walk scoring Bermudez. Game over.
