Eddie's Farm: July 12

Oklahoma City (39-52)


Corpus (33-55)

That's how Chris Wallace do! Wallace hit a pinch-hit grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the 8th to break a 3-3 tie with NW Arkansas, carrying Corpus to a 7-3 win. Ross Seaton had a solid outing: 6IP, 3H/1ER, 5K:0BB; Blake King allowed 1H/1ER, 2K:1BB in 1IP, Henry Villar got the Brandon Lyon (BS/W) with 1IP, 2H/1ER, 1K:0BB, and Danny Meszaros closed out the 9th with 1H/0ER, 2K:0BB.

Jimmy Paredes (2B, RBI), Jake Goebbert (2B, RBI), and Brandon Wikoff had two hits each, while Jonathan Villar hit his third homer of the season to lead-off the game.

Man of the Match: Big Poppa

Lancaster (35-54)

Lancaster had a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the 4th, but High Desert tied it up and then scored the go-ahead run in the 7th for a 5-4 win over Lancaster. Robby Donovan allowed 8H/4ER, 1K:2BB; Wander Alvino took the loss with 2H/1ER, 4K:1BB in 2.1IP, and Shane Wolf allowed 1H/0ER, 1K:1BB in 1.1IP.

Grant Hogue (2SB) and Adam Bailey (OF assist) had two hits each; Rene Garcia and Andy Simunic got a hit and a walk, and Jose Carlos Thompson hit a two-run homer and drew a walk.

Man of the Match: Jose Carlos Thompson

Lexington (41-47)

Postponed - Rain

Tri-City (9-14)


Greeneville (7-14)

The Gastros had a 3-0 lead, and then Johnson City scored nine of the next ten runs for a 9-4 win. Tyson Perez threw 3.1IP, allowing 3H/4ER, 2K:1BB; Jeremiah Meiners allowed 3H/4R (2ER), 4K:1BB in 2IP, and Mark Jones allowed 3H/1ER, 1K:1BB in 2.2IP.

Chase Davidson probably ought to head up to Tri-City at some point soon, as he was 3x4 with his 5th homer and 2RBI (his 1.128 OPS leads the Appalachian League). Darwin Rivera was 1x4 with a double and 2RBI; Garen Wright replaced Ariel Ovando in RF before Ovando had a chance to bat, and went 1x3 with a double and a walk.

Man of the Match: Chase Davidson

GCL Astros (6-13)

Sweet Mercy. The GCL Astros put up a 10-spot in the 1st inning on the GCL Mets, and then were outscored 11-7 over the rest of the game, yet still held on for a 17-11 win. Enderson Franco allowed 11H/7R (6ER), 1K:3BB in 4.1IP; Pedro Gomez got the win with 1.2IP scoreless; Juan Mojica allowed 4H/4R (2ER) in 0.1IP. Wilton Infante got out of the 7th with 0.1IP, and Wes Musick made a rehab appearance, allowing 1H/0ER, 1K:1BB in 2IP.

Jean Carlos Batista was 3x5 with a double and 5RBI; Javaris Reynolds (BB, RBI, SB), Chris Epps (HR, 4RBI, 2BB), Jarrod McKinney (2 2B), and Kenny Diaz (HR, 3RBI) had two hits each. That said, the Astros committed six errors on the day.

Man of the Match: This one goes to Chris Epps - on base four times with 4RBI.
