Sleet and hail and cold and war and plague suspended the Express/Sky Sox game last night with two outs in the top of the 8th, and Express runners on first and second. Drew Locke had a three-run homer, while Shelton hit a two-run jack. The game will be completed at 6:05 Central time tonight, and the last game of the series will begin 30 minutes after that game has ended.
Come on. Nelson Payano gave up a walk-off homer to San Antonio's Matt Clark for a 1-0 win over Corpus. Tyler Lumsden threw 7IP, 5H/0ER, 4K:1BB to lower his ERA to 2.39. The Hooks were 0x10 w/RISP, leaving seven on base, striking out 12 times and not drawing a walk (I realize there's an organizational philosophy here, but it doesn't have to be "Don't Walk.") Jhon Florentino and Lou Santangelo both had two hits - and both had doubles. Shuck, Gaston, and Clemens each had a hit, but Gaston was 1x4 w/3Ks.
Man of the Match: Tyler Lumsden
Lancaster followed Corpus' lead, only Lake Elsinore scored their run in the 1st inning, and the JetHawks only managed to scratch out two hits. Lancaster wastes Keuchel's effort and loses 1-0. Dallas Keuchel threw a complete game, 8IP, 6H/1ER, 11K:1BB. He has allowed 10H/1ER, 15K:3BB in his last 17IP. Brandon Barnes and Brandon Wikoff got the only two hits, while Jay Austin went 0x4 with 4Ks.
Man of the Match: Dallas Keuchel
David Duncan and the Legends' bullpen were excellent, shutting out Greenville 4-0. Duncan threw 5IP, 1H/0ER, 4K:0BB in his season debut while Wander Alvino allowed 2H/2BB in 2IP, and Jose Trinidad threw 2IP, 1H/0ER. J.D. Martinez was 3x5 with a double, and Jake Goebbert and Kody Hinze both had two hits. Jose Altuve and Hinze both hit solo homers (Altuve's 2nd, Hinze's 10th), and Hinze added another RBI for his 40th. Hinze and Martinez are 1-2 for the SAL lead in RBIs, and Hinze's homer put him back on top.
Man of the Match: Kody Hinze
