Evan Englebrook gave up two doubles in the top of the 11th to take the result in a 4-3 loss to New Orleans. Gustavo Chacin threw 5.2IP, 5H/1ER, 6K:1BB while Sam Gervacio - in his rehab appearance - gave up 1H/1ER, 1K:1BB in the 7th, Majewski gave up a run in the 8th, Daigle threw two scoreless, and Englebrook did his thing. The Express' offense was 2x20 w/RISP (2x20!) and couldn't take advantage of three Zephyr errors. Matt Kata was 3x6, Yordany Ramirez was 3x4, Chris Shelton was 2x4, and Brian Bogusevic threw three walks.
Man of the Match: Gustavo Chacin
The bullpen nutted it last night, turning a 4-3 lead going into the 9th into a 6-4 loss in 10 innings to NW Arkansas. Sergio Perez gave up 7H/3ER, 4K:3BB, and Matt Nevarez and recently-signed Nelson Payano (who was sent to Corpus before the game) threw three scoreless, though Nevarez walked three batters in his 1IP. Danny Meszaros gave up the tying run in the 9th, and Erick Abreu took the loss with 1IP, 2H/2ER. Good offensive news, though, Lou Santangelo and Koby Clemens hit homers off Royals prospect Aaron Crow. Jack Shuck was 2x4, and Wladimir Sutil had two hits and an RBI.
Man of the Match: Koby Clemens
Ross Seaton got his first win of the season with 6IP, 6H/1ER, 6K:1BB, leading a 6-1 win over High Desert. Pat Urckfitz, Edwin Walker, and Kyle Godfrey combined for 3IP, 3H/1ER, 7K:0BB. Albert Cartwright was 3x4, Jay Austin (with a triple), Brandon Wikoff, and David Flores had two hits each, and Mark Ori had a bases-clearing double.
Man of the Match: Ross Seaton
This time it was Greenville who came out on top of the Legends in a 6-3 win. Juan Minaya threw 5.1IP, 4H/3ER, 2K:2BB for the loss, while Wander Alvino allowed a run, Colton Pitkin gave up two (one earned on Jonathan Meyer's eighth error of the season), and Dan Sarisky shut it down for 1H/0ER in 2IP. Meyer overcame the error with another 2x4 day (now hitting .396), catcher Rene Garcia was 2x4 with a 9th inning, two out, three-run homer (now hitting .387). J.D. Martinez was 0x3, but with a walk, so the on-base streak remains intact.
Man of the Match: Rene Garcia
