Oklahoma City (41-38), 4.0 GB

Man of the Match: Uh. Carlos Perez?

Corpus (4-4), tied

Welp. That was stupid. The Hooks carried a 4-1 lead into the top of the 9th but I'll be a monkey's uncle if Springfield didn't score five runs in the top of the 9th, and despite getting one back in the bottom haf, the Hooks lost 6-5. Kyle Hallock threw 5.1IP, 1H/1ER, 2K:4BB; Andrew Robinson (1.2IP, 2BB) and Jorge De Leon (K) threw scoreless outings. Pat Urckfitz allowed 5H/4ER in 0.2IP while Carlos Quevedo allowed a solo homer and two of Urckfitz's runs for the BS.

Max Stassi continued his tear with a 3x5 night; Jonathan Meyer (two doubles, BB, RBI) and Zach Johnson (2B, RBI) had two hits each. Preston Tucker (BB, RBI) and Michael Burgess (HR, 2RBI, BB) had a hit and a walk each.

Greeneville (3-5), 4.0 GB

That is a Win Streak, my friends! Greeneville scored in the first inning, one in the 7th and six runs in the 8th, but that first one was all they needed. Astros pitching held Kingsport to no runs on two hits in an 8-0 win. Jandel Gustave struck out seven and walked three in six hitless innings; Sebastian Kessay struck out two in 1IP and J.D. Osborne allowed 2H/0ER, 5K:0BB as Kingsport struck out 14 times on the night.

Alfredo Gonzalez was 3x4 with a double and 2RBI; Edwin Gomez was 2x5 with a double; Tanner Mathis (2BB) Juan Santana (2RBI), and Darwin Rivera (HR) provided your RBIs.

Man of the Match: Jandel Gustave
