Boom! Albuquerque takes a 2-1 lead, and the Express respond with a 4-run 4th. Express go on to win convincingly 9-3. Wesley Wright is, rightly, back into his role as a starter and allowed 5H/2ER, 3K:0BB over 54 pitches (2.2IP). Brad Thompson allowed 3H/1R (0ER) in 1.2IP, while Majewski (1.2IP), Corcoran (2IP), and Daigle (1IP) held the Isotopes to 2H/0ER. Drwe Locke was 4x5 with two doubles, Brian Bogusevic was 3x4 with a homer, and Kevin Cash was 3x4 with 2RBI and a walk. Tommy Everidge was 2x4. Wonder where Chris Shelton is? Facing a "long stint" on the DL. Luis Maza was also 2x5.
Man of the Match: Drew Locke.
Hm. The Hooks got three hits, and it's hard to win with three hits. So they lost 4-0 to Frisco. Jordan Lyles gave up all four runs - all earned - allowing 10 hits, two walks, and seven strikeouts over 6IP. Erik Stiller, Nelson Payano, and Evan Englebrook threw three no-hit innings. German Duran, Jimmy Van Ostrand, and Jhon Florentino got your hits, with Shuck and Clemens drawing walks.
Man of the Match: The bullpen
Stockton beat up on Lancaster for a 9-4 win. David Duncan threw 2.2IP, 6H/5ER, 2K:2BB, while Edwin Walker allowed a hit and a walk in 3.1IP. Kyle Godfrey (2IP) and Brian Wabick (1IP) combined to allow 5H/4R (3ER), 2K:2BB, 1HR. Mark Ori was 2x4 with two doubles and two RBI (and a missed catch for an E3). Freddy Parejo was 2x2 with a walk and RBI.
Man of the Match: Edwin Walker
Rome got six in the top of the first, and that was all they needed - despite being outhit 10-3 by the Legends, and committing four errors. Rome wins 6-3. All six were on Juan Minaya, who allowed 1H/3BB in 0.2IP. He got some help from Zach Grimmett, who allowed 4H/1BB in the next 2.2IP. Jose Trinidad threw 3.2 perfect IP, striking out three, and Wander Alvino allowed one hit in 2IP. Miguel Arrendell (who's hitting .400 - 14x35 - in his last ten games) was 2x5 with an RBI, and Jonathan Meyer had your other 2-hit game. Kody Hinze was 1x2 with two walks. Jose Altuve was 1x5 with an RBI and two runs scored.
Man of the Match: Miguel Arrendell.
Jeebus. Tri-City scores a season-high seven runs and still loses 9-7. Murillo Gouvea allowed 6H/3ER, 3K:1BB in 5IP while the bullpen of Brandt Walker (1IP), Jeiler Castillo (1IP), Joan Belliard (0.2IP), Adam Champion (1.1IP), and Andrew "Jimmy" Robinson - can we get a verdict on his actual name? - (1IP) allowed 11H/6ER, 7K:2BB. Congratulations, though, to Adam Bailey and Ben Heath who hit their first professional homers. Nick Stanley was 3x4 (RBI), and Bailey ended up 3x4 (2B, HR, 3RBI).
Man of the Match: Adam Bailey.
Nice job of rallying by the Gastros, who were behind three times to Johnson City and still won 7-6. Ricardo Batista threw 4IP, 2H/2R (1ER), 2K:2BB; Ryan Cole allowed 4H/2ER in 2.2IP, and Brian Streilein got the blown save and the win with 2H/2R (2ER) in 1.1IP. Phil Rorabaugh got his first save of the season with a scoreless 9th. Marcus Nidiffer was 2x4 with two doubles (and is hitting .500 this week). Bubby Williams hit a two-run homer.
Man of the Match: Despite the error, it goes to Nidiffer.
Mark Jones was undone by errors (six errors total in this game: three by Chan-Jong Moon, Vargas, Ditthardt, and Pena), getting charged with three unearned runs, but striking out six in 5IP. Dayan Diaz allowed 4H/2ER in 0.2IP, Austin Lucas gave up an hit and an unearned run in 1.1IP, and Jeremiah Meiners allowed 2H/2R (1ER), 2K:1BB in the final IP. GCL Mets win 9-5. Ryan Ditthardt and Roberto Pena had three hits each, while Jose Vargas and Kyle Redinger each collected two hits. Chan-Jong Moon, despite his three errors, also drew three walks.
