Round Rock got all their runs in the bottom of the 9th for a 3-2 win over Oklahoma City. Brian Bogusevic led off the 9th with a single, Chris Shelton walked, Collin DeLome walked, German Duran got HBPed (scoring Bogusevic, 3-1), Edwin Maysonet singled (Kata, running for Duran, scored), and Esposito reached on a throwing error by first baseman Chris Davis, scoring DeLome. Brian Moehler threw 3IP, 1H/0ER, 1K:0BB, but left with a hurt groin, so Shane Loux came in for the next 6IP, allowing 3H/2R (1ER), 2K:1BB and the win. Shuck, Navarro, Locke, Bogusevic, and Maysonet provided all your hits. Interestingly enough, the top four in the lineup had a hit each, while all three RBI were provided by 6-7-8.
Man of the Match: Shane Loux
Corpus took a 1-0 lead in the first, and promptly gave three runs back to Midland on their way to a 5-1 loss. Dallas Keuchel threw 6IP, 8H/5R (4ER), 4K:2BB - getting ten groundouts to four flyouts. Matt Nevarez walked three, but emerged from the 7th unscathed, and Evan Englebrook threw a perfect 8th. Freddy Parejo, J.D. Martinez, Jon Gaston, Mike Affronti, and Lou Santangelo got two hits each, but Santangelo had the only extra-base hit, a double. Gaston provided the only RBI.
Man of the Match: Jon Gaston
This wasn't pretty either. Ross Seaton got rocked, and the JetHawks fell 10-4, after an 8-run first by Lake Elsinore. Seaton allowed 6H/7R (1 courtesy of Brian Wabick), 0K:1BB in 0.2IP. Wabick allowed 5H/2ER, 1K:4BB in 3.1IP. Luckily, a bullpen of Wolf, Godfrey, Berner, and the debut of David Carpenter combined for 3H/1ER, 2K:2BB in 4IP. Andy Simunic had your only extra-base hit, and Austin, Altuve, and Jonathan Villar provided the RBI.
Man of the Match: Andy Simunic
This time it was Augusta's turn to rally late. Lexington took a 4-0 lead in the first, but Augusta scored four in the 8th and one in the 9th for a 5-4 win over the Legends. Jose Cisnero had a strong outing - 7IP, 1H/0ER, 4K:0BB - completely wasted by Yordany Ramirez (0.1IP, 2H/3ER, 1K:1BB) and Wander Alvino (1IP, 2H/2ER, 0K:1BB). Alvino allowed two runs charged to Yordany, and Colton Pitkin allowed a run charged to Alvino. Jiovanni Mier and Jake Goebbert (RBI) had two hits each, while Kody Hinze hit a three-run homer - his fourth homer since the end of May. Our Boy Aaron Bray - playing LF - was 0x3 with a walk.
Man of the Match: Jose Cisnero
Drama in Connecticut, as a Tiger error leads to the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th. ValleyCats win 5-4. Bobby Doran allowed 9H/4ER, 4K:0BB in 4.2IP, and the bullpen of Blankenship, Walker, Sogard, and De Leon held the Tigers to 5H/0ER, 10K:0BB in the next 6.1IP. Dan Adamson hit his 9th homer of the season, and Enrique Hernandez and Tyler Burnett provided the other RBI. Hernandez and Orloff - who scored the winning run - were 1x4 with 2BB each. Austin Wates was hit by a Josue Carreno pitch, likely leading to X-Rays.
Man of the Match: Dan Adamson
All the scoring was taken care of by the middle of the 2nd, and despite getting outhit 10-3, Greeneville beat Princeton, 2-1. Vincent Velasquez allowed 3.2IP, 4H/1ER - a solo homer to Cesar Guillen. Travis Smink gave up 4H/0ER, 3K:0BB, and Brian Streilein allowed 2H/0ER, 2K:1BB for his 4th save of the year. Delino DeShields, Ricardo Heredia, and Hector Rodriguez had your hits. Both Greeneville runs were unearned.
Man of the Match: Travis Smink
