Eddie's Farm: April 12

A touch late on these, I know. The Constable got to see Lyles pitch, and hang out with Subber 10 from The Crawfish Boxes. So there's that.

Oklahoma City
Game 1: Henry Villar sucked it up, allowing 7H/6ER, 3HR in 2IP. But Fernando Rodriguez (2IP, 4K), Gustavo Chacin (2IP, 2K:2BB), Jose Valdez (1.2IP, 1H/0ER, 2K:2BB), and Casey Fien (0.1IP) held it together long enough for the RedHawks to make a comeback. J.B. Shuck and Oswaldo Navarro were both 3x4, Brian Bogusevic tied up the game at 6-6 in the top of the 7th, and Tommy Manzella provided the go-ahead homer, winning 7-6 in eight innings.

Man of the Match: Tommy Manzella!

Game 2: Jordan Lyles threw 65 pitches (46 for strikes) allowed 6H/2ER, 4K:0BB in 4IP, and Sergio Escalona threw 2IP, 1H/0ER, 2K:0BB, but the RedHawks dropped the second game 2-1. OKC only got four hits - a double by Collin DeLome, Drew Locke, Oswaldo Navarro, and a pinch-hit RBI double for Shuck.

Man of the Match: Jordan Lyles


NW Arkansas put up big numbers on the Hooks in a 14-4 win. Xavier Cedeno allowed 5H/7R (4ER), 1K:2BB in 1.1IP. Then Cesar Carrillo allowed 5H/4ER, 2K:3BB in 2.2IP. David Berner allowed 8H/3ER, 1K:1BB in 2.1IP, and David Carpenter closed it out with an impressive 1.2IP, 0H/0ER, 1K:0BB. Wladimir Sutil continued his assault with a 2x5, RBI, SB day, Brandon Barnes was 3x4 with 2RBI, and Jon Gaston and Andy Simunic were both 2x4 with a double. J.D. Martinez went 1x3 with an RBI double and a walk.

Man of the Match: Brandon Barnes


A 5-run 8th inning pushed the JetHawks over the top for an 8-5 win over San Jose. Jose Cisnero threw 5IP, 3H/3ER, 11K:3BB, 2WP. Yes. Eleven of his 15 outs were strikeouts. Colton Pitkin got the Blown Save/Win with 3IP, 2H/2ER, 1K:3BB, and Kirk Clark walked a batter in the 9th. Jay Austin was 3x4 with a double, while Jake Goebbert (HR), Jonathan Meyer (RBI), and Erik Castro (2B, RBI) each had two hits. Johnathan Villar was 1x3 with a two-run homer and 3RBI total. Interesting note: the JetHawks were caught stealin' three times, including an attempted steal of home by Erik Castro in the 8th to end the inning.

Man of the Match: Jose Cisnero.


Lexington got down 4-0 early, and Hagerstown rode it out for a 5-1 win over the Legends. Juan Minaya allowed 5IP, 3H/4R (3ER), 6K:3BB in the loss. Murillo Gouvea allowed 1H/1ER, 2K:1BB in 2IP, and Jason Chowning threw 2IP, 0H/0ER, 2K:1BB. Bryce Harper was 0x4, by the way. The Legends got five hits, and three of them were from Dan Adamson, who was a homer away from the cycle, and added a stolen base and an outfield assist. Chris Wallace and Bryce Lane added a double - so four of the Legends' five hits were for extra-bases.

Man of the Match: Dan Adamson.
