PreStros Morning Report: May 17

Oklahoma City (24-16)

Sacramento never trailed in this one, and though the RedHawks did close a 4th inning deficit to 2-1, Sacramento won 4-2. Ross Seaton continued his quest for a 9.00-level ERA with 6H/4ER, 3K:1BB, 2HR in 4IP; Kevin Chapman walked three in 2IP, and Jason Stoffel allowed three baserunners - but no runs - in 2IP.

Andy Simunic continued his tear with a 2x4, 2B, RBI day and Che-Hsuan Lin added two hits, an RBI and a walk.

Man of the Match: Che-Hsuan Lin

Corpus (24-17)

I think I saw on Twitter last night that the Hooks had never before won a 1-0 road game. But that's exactly what they did in Midland last night. Jake Buchanan - who should find his way to OKC soon - threw 5IP, 5H/0ER, 5K:1BB to lower his ERA to 0.93. Josh Fields threw a scoreless 6th; Carlos Quevedo allowed 1H and 2K in 1.2IP; Our Boy Kenny Long walked a batter for the second straight game, but Pat Urckfitz shut down the final four outs.

George Springer had two hits and just one strikeout, Max Stassi was 2x3 with a double and the lone RBI.

Man of the Match: Jake Buchanan, who has allowed 18H/1ER, 20K:2BB in 36.1IP - his last eight appearances.

Lancaster (24-17)

Despite a Visalia four-run 7th inning, the JetHawks scored all they needed for a 6-4 win. Luis Cruz allowed 2H/0ER, 5K:2BB in 5IP; Kyle Hallock allowed 5H/4ER, 2K:1BB in 3IP; and Travis Ballew threw a perfect 9th for his 7th save.

The JetHawks got two-hit games out of four players: Delino DeShields (2RBI, 2BB, 2SB), Preston Tucker, Telvin Nash (RBI), and MP Cokinos (HR, 2RBI).

Man of the Match: Delino DeShields

Quad Cities (23-17)

The RiverBandits struck with a run in the first, but that was the only run they could muster, despite out-hitting Beloit 9-7. Beloit won, 3-1. Brian Holmes gave up two solo homers on four hits in 4IP; Jordan Jankowski allowed 3H/1ER but struck out seven in 4IP; Richard Rodriguez struck out one in 1IP.

Teoscar Hernandez was 3x4 with a double and a stolen base, Carlos Correa was 2x4 with an RBI and Jesse Wierzbicki was 2x4 with a stolen base, as well. Rio Ruiz was 1x4 with a stolen base.

Man of the Match: Jordan Jankowski
