That didn't go well. The Memphis Redbirds scored the final nine runs of the game for a 12-4 win, and a split of the four-game series. Errors by Shelton, Johnson, and Polin Trinidad led to four unearned runs. Trinidad got the start, throwing 5.1IP, 7H/5R (1ER), 4K:2BB, while Sam Gervacio took the loss with 0H/0ER, 2K:2BB in 1.2IP. Jonah Bayliss and Evan Englebrook combined for 8H/7ER, 1K:1BB in 2IP of relief. Chris Johnson was in the lineup for the first time tonight, and went 1x4 with an RBI double, but Matt Kata was 3x4 with an RBI, and Bogusevic continued his hot streak with a 2x4 day.
Man of the Match: Matt Kata
Corpus jumped on San Antonio early for a 5-0 lead after two, and rode it out for the 8-1 win. Doug Arguello needed 108 pitches for the complete game, throwing 9IP, 3H/1ER, 5K:2BB and lowering his ERA to 2.93. Big-time offense, including a 4x5, 3-double, 5RBI day from Koby Clemens, and a 3x4 day from Wladimir Sutil. Jack Shuck and Lou Santangelo also had multi-hit games.
