2nd verse, same as the first. Corpus loses again, 3-2 to NW Arkansas. Jared Wells threw 6IP, 7H/3ER, 3K:1BB, while Matt Nevarez (2IP) and Erick Abreu (1IP) combined to allow 3H/0ER in relief. Once again, ain't nothing going on with the offense. Koby Clemens had two of the Hooks' five hits (plus a walk), and the only extra-base hit - a double. They were 0x11 w/RISP, and Jimmy Van Ostrand/David Cook got the RBIs. Jose Vallejo was 0x4 with 3K, and is hitting .162.
Man of the Match: Koby Clemens
Dallas Keuchel was The Man as the JetHawks beat Inland Empire 3-2. Keuchel threw a complete game 3H/2ER, 4K:4BB to improve to 5-7 with a 3.30 ERA on the season. Albert Cartwright was 2x4, while Jay Austin was 1x4 with a walk and 2RBI. Lee Cruz had a double, and Mark Ori, John Curtis, and David Flores added hits.
Man of the Match: Dallas Keuchel
Down 8-5 heading into the 9th, the Legends rallied for a 12-8 win, thanks to a 7-run 9th. Tanner Bushue threw 4.1IP, 6H/4ER, 6K:1BB (three homers allowed, accounting for all four runs). Mike Schurz allowed another homer in 1.2IP, Arcenio Leon was charged with an unearned run in 1IP, and Wander Alvino got the win despite allowing 3H/2ER in 2IP. The offense blew up - obviously. Jose Altuve was 4x4 with a walk and an RBI. Renzo Tello was 3x5 with a double and an RBI. Jonathan Meyer was 2x5 (2RBI) and Our Boy Aaron Bray was 2x2 with a triple and 2RBI. J.D. Martinez was 1x3 with a walk and two runs scored, and Jake Goebbert was 1x5 with a two-run homer and 3RBI on the night.
Man of the Match: Jose Altuve.
Incredible pitching line out of Tri-City last night as Jamestown beat the ValleyCats, 7-3. Chris Blazek got the start, allowing 3H/2ER, 1K:1BB in 1IP. Then Murillo Gouvea struck out eight of the eleven batters he actually got out, but allowed 2H/3ER and two walks. Then Joan Belliard struck out six (with 3H/2ER) in 3.1IP. Brandt Walker threw a perfect 9th, and struck out two. All in all, ValleyCats pitchers struck out 17 batters, and allowed eight hits and three walks. Ben Orloff got three more hits (now hitting .382), and Dan Adamson was 2x4 with a walk and 2RBI. Mike Kvasnicka was 0x4, and allowed his 3rd passed ball of the season.
Man of the Match: Gouvea, I suppose.
