Eddie's Farm: May 2

Oklahoma City (9-15)

It was a low-scoring affair, and OKC managed to strike last, ending up with 2-1 win over Nashville. The RedHawks' pitching staff only allowed two hits, but Doug Arguello was a touch off - throwing 6IP, 2H/0ER, 5K:5BB. Fernando Rodriguez struck out three of the seven batters he faced, allowing no hits, and walking one. Jose Valdez got his 3rd save in his return to OKC, striking out two.

Arguello had the only RBI for the RedHawks, with Jose Vallejo and Tommy Manzella scoring runs. J.B. Shuck was 0x2 with 2BB, and Collin DeLome was 0x0, drawing three walks on the night. Tommy Manzella had the only XBH of the night with a double.

Man of the Match: Doug Arguello

Corpus (10-14)

Corpus jumped all over Frisco, destroying them in a 15-6 win. Dallas Keuchel had thrown 2.1IP, allowing 1H/1ER, 0K:1BB before an infield collision with David Flores knocked them both out of the game, and two batters later Jon Gaston went face-first into the wall, and he was out of the game (you can read Greg Rajan's game report here). Shane Wolf got the win, allowing 2H/3ER, 4K:1BB in 4.2IP. Arcenio Leon threw 1IP, 2H/2ER, 1K:2BB, and Danny Meszaros has yet to allow a run - throwing a scoreless inning.

Wladimir Sutil (2B, 2RBI, 3R) and Jimmy Paredes (HR, 3RBI, 4R, SB) had four hits each, and J.D. Martinez hit a grand slam - those three players accounting for 9RBI. Thanks to the spat of injuries, Andy Simunic played RF-3B-RF and went 2x3 with an RBI and 2BB.

Man of the Match: Jimmy Paredes

Lancaster (12-13)

Rancho Cucamonga got a run in the top of the 9th to provide a 4-3 win over Lancaster. Bobby Doran threw his best game of the season, going 6IP, 7H/3ER, 3K:0BB. Colton Pitkin allowed a hit and a walk in 1.2IP, and Wes Musick took the loss, giving up an unearned run on Jonathan Meyer's throwing error in.

Jake Goebbert was 1x4 with 2RBI (and added an outfield assist), and Jose Altuve provided the other RBI with a 1x3, BB night.

Man of the Match: Bobby Doran

Lexington (13-11)

Suspended in the 2nd due to rain, the game will resume this evening with Lexington up, 4-0.
