The Constable will get to his impressions of the Round Rock game last night in a separate post, so we'll keep this in it's regular format for now. Round Rock allowed the first time runs of the game, then stormed back to take a 6-5 lead going into the bottom of the 9th, and ended up losing to Nashville 7-6. Andy Van Hekken threw 5.1IP, 8H/5R (4ER), 2K:2BB. Mark Melancon allowed 2H/0ER in 1.2IP. Danny Meszaros gave up a hit and an intentional walk in 1IP, and Chris Sampson got the loss with 4H/2ER in 0.2IP. Edwin Maysonet was 3x5 with an RBI, Jack Shuck was 2x5 with a triple and 2RBI, and Collin DeLome hit his 10th and 11th homers.
Man of the Match: Collin DeLome
It was within the realm of possibility that the Hooks could have held Midland to two hits and lost. However, Corpus scored in the 8th for the 1-0 win. Doug Arguello threw 5IP, 1H/0ER, 6K:4BB (six groundouts, one flyout) for the No Decision; Edwin Walker threw 3IP, 1H/0ER, 2K:1BB for the win, and Jared Wells closed it out for his first save. Albert Cartwright was 2x4, as was Geoff Blum, with Blum's flyball to the warning track scoring Cartwright. Freddy Parejo, Kody Kirkland, and Jimmy Van Ostrand collected the other hits. The Hooks struck out 12 times - 3 from Gaston and 2 each from Parejo, Cartwright, and Santangelo.
Man of the Match: I'm not giving a Double-A Man of the Match to Geoff Blum. Albert Cartwright gets it.
High-scoring affair out at Coors Lite! Lancaster scores the last six runs of the game for the 11-9 win over Bakersfield. Ross Seaton continued his yo-yo season, allowing 10H/9R (7ER), 2WP in 3.2IP. Shane Wolf struck out six and allowed just three hits in 5.1IP of relief. Big night for SS Jonathan Villar! 4x4, with two doubles, two runs, 4RBI, and a stolen base. Jay Austin (2x5, 2B, 3B, SB), Brandon Barnes (2x5, 2B, HR, 2RBI), and Lee Cruz (2x4, 2B, RBI) had your multi-hit games, while Andy Simunic only had one hit, but made it count with a 3-run HR.
Man of the Match: Jonathan Villar

Pitchers' duel out in Connecticut, with the ValleyCats dropping 3-1. Bobby Doran threw 6IP, 4H/2ER, 3K:1BB, WP in a hard-luck loss, with John Frawley allowing a hit and an unearned run in 2IP.

Hard to believe this game was scoreless going into the 6th. The GCL Marlins whoop up on the GCL Astros 13-2. Jose Perdomo threw 6IP, 4H/4R (2ER), 5K:3BB. Raul Rivera and Juan Mojica each gave up 3ER, while Rafael Feliz allowed three unearned runs in 0.1IP. The GCL Astros committed six errors: Ditthardt, two from Fernandez, Genoves, and two from Chan-Jong Moon. Jose Monzon and Enrique Fernandez had two hits each, while Ryan Ditthardt and Jose Vargas provided the two other hits. Chan-Jong Moon, playing at 3rd, did draw two walks.
Man of the Match: Ugh. Jose Perdomo?
The DSL Astros didn't get a hit until Jose Solano singled with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, and the DSL Dodgers obviously win 5-0. Enderson Franco threw 5IP, 4H/2ER, 1K:0BB, while Cristian Hirland allowed 8H/3ER, 2K:0BB in 3IP. Edgar Ferreira threw a scoreless 9th, though allowing two walks and a wild pitch. There was clearly not much going on offensively, with Solano's 9th inning single. But Yonathan Mejia drew a walk, and Luis De La Rosa drew two walks.
Man of the Match: Enderson Franco, I suppose.
