Eddie's Farm: May 26

Oklahoma City (21-26)

Back and forth game between OKC and Fresno as the score went: 1-0 OKC, 1-1, 2-1 OKC, 4-2 Fresno, 5-4 OKC - and that was all by the middle of the 4th. Fresno then scored the next four runs for an 8-5 win over OKC. Sergio Perez threw 5IP, 7H/6ER, 5K:1BB, allowing 3HR. Andy Van Hekken allowed 3H/0ER in 1.1IP, and Ross Wolf allowed 2H/2ER, 2K:2BB with 2HR in 1.2IP.

Brandon Barnes is killing the ball, going 3x5 with two doubles and a triple with an RBI. In his last three games, Barnes is 6x12 with two doubles, a triple, and two homers. Tommy Manzella (2RBI, SB) and Jose Vallejo (RBI) each had two hits, and Robinson Cancel extended his hitting streak to 17 games was a 1x4, BB, RBI night.

Man of the Match: Brandon Barnes

Corpus (17-29)

Brutal loss for Corpus at Springfield last night as Xavier Cedeno took a no-hitter into the 8th inning. The Hooks took a 1-0 lead in the top of the 9th, but Springfield got two back in the bottom half for the 2-1 win. Cedeno threw 7.2IP, 1H/0ER, 8K:5BB, WP, and didn't allow a ball in the air until Alan Ahmady lined out to 2B. Danny Meszaros was on the mound when Federico Hernandez caught a runner stealing at 3rd to end the inning. Patrick Urckfitz gave up a leadoff double, then a single, a groundout RBI, an intentional walk, and a walk-off single for the loss.

The Hooks only got five hits - Jimmy Paredes (2B), Jon Gaston (2B), Jimmy Van Ostrand (2B, BB), Cedeno, and a pinch-hit RBI from Everyone's Hero J.D. Martinez. T.J. Steele was 0x4 with 4Ks in the cleanup spot.

Man of the Match: Xavier Cedeno

Lancaster (19-28)

How do you respond to a 25-9 beatdown? By putting up five in the bottom of the first. Lancaster scored in every inning except the 6th for a 13-4 win over Rancho Cucamonga. Zach Grimmett threw 4.2IP, allowing 7H/2ER, 8K:2BB while Mike Ness got the win, allowing 3H/2R (0ER), 2K:0BB in 4IP of relief. Wander Alvino was on the mound for the last out of the game.

This will take a while. Grant Hogue was 4x5 with 2RBI, while Johnathan Villar (2B, HR, RBI), Jose Altuve (now hitting .403), Jonathan Meyer (2B, HR, RBI), and Ben Heath (2B) all had three hits each. Jay Austin (BB), Kody Hinze (BB, 2RBI), and Jose Carlos Thompson (HR, RBI) had two hits each. Austin Wates was the only player with just one hit, and it was a double.

Man of the Match: Grant Hogue.

Lexington (24-23)

Lexington had a 7-0 lead going into the 6th, but watched that evaporate by the end of the 7th before getting three back in the bottom of the 8th for a 10-8 win over Rome. Tanner Bushue threw 3IP in his return from the DL, allowing 1H/0ER, 4K:2BB. Luis Cruz gave up 5H/3ER in 3IP. Garrett Bullock allowed 2H/3ER, 0K:1BB, with David Martinez letting both runners he inherited score, and Brian Streilein gave up a solo homer.

Jiovanni Mier (2B, BB, 3RBI), Adam Bailey (2B, BB, 2RBI), and Emilio King (2B) had three hits each, while Chris Wallace was 2x5 with an RBI. Delino DeShields was 1x4 with a walk, and was picked off of third base. The Legends were 8x13 w/RISP as they win their 5th straight to get over .500.
