Omaha doubled up Round Rock last night 6-3. Polin Trinidad was the hard-luck loser, throwing 7IP, 7H/6R (3ER), 4K:0BB, and 3HR allowed. Why is it a hard-luck? Because Yordany Ramirez' fielding error led to three unearned runs. Jonah Bayliss and Yorman Bazardo threw a scoreless inning. Oswaldo Navarro had your only multi-hit game (2x4, RBI), and Matt Kata (1x3, BB, RBI) also got on base twice.
Man of the Match: Matt Kata
The Hooks did all their scoring in the 5th inning, and that was enough to hold off San Antonio for a 3-2 win. Jeremy Johnson threw 117 pitches to get 9H/2ER, 4K:1BB in 7IP. Henry Villar gave up a hit and a walk in 1IP, and Danny Meszaros allowed three hits - but both kept San Antonio off the scoreboard to preserve Johnson's win. Jack Shuck, German Duran, and - yes - Jeremy Johnson had two hits each (each also adding a walk), but it was Marcos Cabral (1x3, 2RBI, BB) and Jimmy Van Ostrand (1x3, BB, RBI) who provided the RBIs.
Huge moment in the bottom of the 9th: San Antonio has nobody out, Jesus Lopez on 1st, down 3-2. Andrew Parrino hit a fly ball to Gaston, who then fired it to Clemens, doubling off Lopez, and getting the double play.
Man of the Match: Marcos Cabral.
The ValleyCats get back in the win column with a 5-0 win over Lowell. Tommy Shirley threw 3IP, 1H/0ER, 5K:1BB; David Martinez threw 4IP, 2H/0ER, 3K:2BB; Blazek - 1IP, 3K:1BB; and Robinson - 1IP, 1H/0ER, 1K:1BB. The ValleyCats' drawing of walks were the keys of the game - Tyler Burnett drew three; Oscar Figueroa drew two; Wilton Infante, Mike Kvasnicka, and Daniel Adamson all drew a walk each. Infante, Ben Heath, Adamson, and Adam Bailey all added hits, with Kvasnicka, Heath, and Adamson collecting RBIs.
Man of the Match: Daniel Adamson - 1x3 with the lone XBH (2B), BB, and RBI.
