PreStros Morning Report: August 4

Oklahoma City (66-50), 2.5 up

Well. A ten-game win streak - for the first time in franchise history - certainly is notable. The RedHawks get it today in a 5-2 win over Colorado Springs. Jake Buchanan threw 7IP, 8H/2ER, 4K:1BB to improve to 4-2 for OKC. Jason Stoffel got all four batters he faced, and Kevin Chapman struck out the last two batters of the game.

Trevor Crowe was 3x3 with two runs scored; Ruben Sosa, George Springer (RBI), and Brandon Laird (2B, 2RBI) had two hits each. Jon Singleton was 1x3 with a walk (and is hitting .333/.417/.567 in his last ten games). Rene Garcia had two RBI.

Man of the Match: Trevor Crowe

Corpus (26-18, tied) 68-46 overall

Corpus scored the game-tying run in the 8th and got the walk-off on Domingo Santana's single for a 2-1 win over Midland in ten innings. David Rollins made his Double-A debut, throwing 5.2IP, 3H/1ER, 6K:1BB; Jonas Dufek (2.1IP) and Pat Urckfitz (2IP) allowed a hit, but no runs, in their outings.
