Things are about to ramp up for Eddie's Farm, meaning these are about to get longer. Yippee.
Despite getting eight hits, the Hooks were shutout 3-0 at Midland. Tyler Lumsden continued his renaissance by going 6IP, 4H/3R (1ER), 3K:5BB. Nelson Payano and Brian Wabick threw 2IP, 2H/0ER. The Hooks GIDPd four times, so that hurts, and were 1x7 w/RISP. Jack Shuck was 3x4, and Lou Santangelo was 2x3 for the multi-hit games.
Man of the Match: Shuck.
Brandon Barnes hit for the cycle (a day after Freddy Parejo hit for the cycle) in a 7-4 win over Visalia. Shane Wolf threw 6IP, 8H/4R (3ER), 5K:1BB, and Mike Modica tossed three perfect innings for his first save of the season. Barnes' ABs: Homer (1st inning), strikeout (3rd), triple (5th inning), double (7th inning), single (8th inning). So Barnes was 4x5 with 3RBI, and Albert Cartwright was 2x4 with 3RBI. Freddy Parejo was 2x4, and has four straight multi-hit games to give him a .357/.386/.595 line over his last ten games.
Man of the Match: Barnes
DSL Astros (2-7)

Man of the Match: Jose Montero.
