Oklahoma City (13-15)
OKC won their 5th straight game with some hot pitching from Ryan Rowland-Smith, winning 3-2 over an Eric Hosmer-less Omaha. The Hyphen threw 6.1IP, 7H/1ER, 4K:0BB. Ross Wolf got five outs against four batters, and Sergio Escalona picked up his 2nd save of the year, allowing 2H/1ER, 1K:1BB in the 9th to make it interesting.
The RedHawks only got seven hits, with two from Brian Dopirak - including a homer in the 6th. Collin DeLome hit his 3rd homer, two batters before Dopirak. Those were your only two XBHs of the game.
Man of the Match: Ryan Rowland-Smith.
So that Danny Meszaros ER-less streak came to an end in a 7-5 loss to Midland. Ross Seaton threw a strong 6.2IP, 7H/4ER, 2K:1BB. Then the 7th happened. With two outs, Seaton left one on base for David Berner, who gave up a hit. With the bases loaded for Danny Meszaros, Midland's Stephen Parker hit a two-out grand slam to put Midland over the top, giving Meszaros the BS/L. Patrick Urckfitz allowed a hit in an otherwise uneventful 9th.
Jake Goebbert, in his first start for Corpus (in LF), went 2x4 with a double, walk, and an RBI (and an error, but whatever). Brandon Wikoff was also 2x4 (BB, RBI). Wladimir Sutil hit a two-run homer, and David Flores provided the other RBI. The Hooks were 2x12 w/RISP.
Man of the Match: Jake Goebbert. Why not?
The JetHawks bounced back from Thursday night's brutal loss to take the series opener against Inland Empire, 5-4, after a two-run 8th. Jake Buchanan threw 5IP, 5H/4R (2ER), 3K:2BB, while Wes Musick threw 3IP of 0H/0ER, 3K:1BB relief. Kirk Clark threw an uneventful 9th.
Rene Garcia and Grant Hogue (2RBI, BB) each got two hits and a double. Johnathan Villar was 1x3 with 2BB. Jose Altuve had two RBI, including the game-winning RBI.
Man of the Match: Grant Hogue
If you had May 6 in the "When Foltynewicz Gets His First Professional Win" pool, you lost. Hagerstown took a 3-0 lead into the 7th when the Legends got two back, and then promptly gave them right back. Legends lose 5-2. But it wasn't his fault. Foltynewicz allowed 8H/3R (2ER), 4K:2BB in 5IP, getting five groundouts to two flyouts. Murilo Gouvea - back from Wherever - allowed 2ER (thanks to Brian Streilein) on 2BB and a WP. Streilein gave up 2H/0ER in 2IP.
The top three in the lineup (DeShields, Mier, Bailey) went a combined 0x13 with 2BB - both DeShields', who also had a stolen base. Tyler Burnett and Jhonny Medrano were both 2x4 with a double. And there were errors by Bryce Lane, Foltynewicz, and Medrano.
Man of the Match: Uh. DeShields? For drawing two walks?
