PreStros Morning Report: June 19

Oklahoma City (37-33), 2.0 GB

Cancel your plans to have Jose Valdez come up to Houston for a little while. Valdez gave up a walk-off grand slam to New Orleans and the Zephyrs win, 4-3. Philip Humber turned in a decent start, throwing 5IP, 3H/0ER, 6K:3BB; Kevin Chapman (2K) and Jason Stoffel (2IP, 3K) had scoreless outings. And then Jose Valdez happened. 3H/4ER, 1K:1BB, 1 Grand Slam, 1 Blown Save, 1 Loss.

Jonathan Villar was 2x4 with a walk; Robbie Grossman was 1x3 with a walk, two stolen bases and two outfield assists. Carlos Perez also had a hit and a walk.

Man of the Match: Robbie Grossman.

Corpus (1-1), tied

Don't freak out about the record. I have not had some brain trauma. The Second Half is underway, and the Hooks got two runs in the 7th to seal a 4-2 win over San Antonio in which they got out-hit 9-5. Mike Foltynewicz gave up 5H/2ER in 4.1IP, but struck out eight batters, walking just one. Kenny Long gave up a hit in 0.1IP, and David Martinez improved his record to 10-1 with 4.1IP of "relief," allowing 3H/0ER, 2K:0BB.

Domingo Santana hit a 2-run homer in the 1st inning; Jio Mier (SB) and Erik Castro were each 1x3 with a walk. George Springer was 0x2 with two walks.

Man of the Match: Foltynewicz and Martinez.

The ValleyCats were down 1-0 heading into the bottom of the 2nd, and that was the last time they would trail as they sweep Vermont with an 8-2 win.
