I don't know that I've ever seen "Completed Early" as a reason for only playing 4 1/2 innings, but it was an official game, and it's a good thing for the Express. Omaha wins a shortened game, 7-0. Jordan Lyles threw 4IP, 12H/7R (5ER), 4K:0BB. The Express committed more errors (3) than they got hits (2). Matt Kata and Collin DeLome provided your hits, while Edwin Maysonet, Lyles, and Drew Locke were charged with errors. The Express have lost ten of their last eleven.
Man of the Match: Nope.
Corpus came pretty dang close to a shutout over Frisco, but had to settle for a 4-1 win, instead. Matt Lindstrom threw a rehab inning to open the game, striking out one, hitting a batter, and throwing a wild pitch. Then Polin Trinidad took over and threw the next eight innings, allowing 7H/1ER, 4K:1BB, and a wild pitch. Corpus got 12 hits, but only one with runners in scoring position. David Cook, Albert Cartwright, Mike Affronti (HR), Wladimir Sutil, and Federico Hernandez had two ehits each. Koby Clemens was 0x4 with 3Ks and an RBI.
Man of the Match: Polin Trinidad.
