PreStros Farm Report: April 7

PreStros: April 7

Oklahoma City (2-1) 

Despite Juan Abreu’s best efforts to give away the game, the RedHawks won 5-4 against Memphis.

Starter Dallas Keuchel pitched well in the win, going 6 IP allowing just 2H/0ER with 3K:0BB. He also induced an impressive 12 ground outs to just 3 fly outs. Brought in to close out the game with a 5-0 lead, after getting out of a bases loaded jam in the 8th, Abreu gave up 4 ER on 3 H including 2 HR with 1K:1BB in the 9th. As proof of what an important stat it is, Abreu got the save.

2B-Scott Moore was 2x3 with 2 R, 1 SB and 1 BB. 1B-Mike Hessman went 2x4 with 2 R.

Man of the Match: Dallas Keuchel

Kevin Chapman, brought over from the Kansas City franchise in the Bourgeois/Quintero trade, gave one scoreless inning with 2 hits and 1 K.
