Eddie's Farm: August 17

Round Rock
Rough night for the Express' offense, as they collected four hits in an 8-0 loss to Reno, who posted four separate two-run innings. Edwin Maysonet was 2x3, with Manzella and Yordany getting the other two hits on the night. The Express only had 2ABs with RISP. Mark McLemore took the loss, with 5IP, 10H/6ER, 1K:3BB, and Chris Sampson continued to prove the point that he just doesn't need to be throwing. At all. 1IP, 2H/2ER. Get that guy on the DL, and off the mound. Corcoran and Paronto threw 2IP with 0H/0ER, 2K:0BB.

Corpus Christi
Corpus got a couple of clutch extra-base hits in the 7th to provide the winning margin in a 2-1 win over Springfield. Aaron Boone, in his final rehab start at Corpus, was 1x1 with a double, Drew Meyer was 1x3, Collin DeLome hit an RBI triple, and Jose Duran had an RBI double. Wilton Lopez threw 7.2IP, 5H/0ER, 6K:1BB, and C-Lo threw 1.1IP, 0H/0ER, 2K:0BB for his first save of the year for Corpus.

The Legends only managed three hits on the night - two from Albert Cartwright and one from Steve Brown - in a 6-0 loss to Kannapolis. Three Legends errors led to three unearned runs, and Kyle Greenwalt got the loss - his 12th - despite throwing 5IP, 4H/2ER (3 total), with 9K:0BB.

Johnson City scored three runs in the top of the 9th for a 6-5 win over Greeneville, despite the Gastros leading
3-0 and 4-3. Miguel Arrendell had the only multi-hit game, one of the two hits a solo homer, with Grant Hogue and Wilton Infante getting triples. Carlos Quevedo threw 5IP, 4H/1ER, 6K:0BB, while a bullpen of Smink, Castillo, and Martinez threw 4IP, 9H/5ER, 4K:0BB, 4HR. Ouch.
