Texas League South Division Championship Series – Game #4

Midland RockHounds  5

WP – Hooker 1-0 / 3.38

HR – Muncy (1)

The RockHounds notched their third straight victory over Frisco on Saturday night to clinch the Texas League South Division Championship and earn their ticket to the Texas League Championship Series. And Midland managed to claim victory on Saturday by collecting just 3 hits. First baseman Max Muncy got things going early by homering in the 1st inning to put the Hounds on the board. Shortstop Dusty Coleman singled and scored on a wild pitch in the 5th, and outfielder Jeremy Barfield, who walked 3 times, doubled and was stranded in the 8th – while designated hitter Conner Crumbliss drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the 5th. Starter Shawn Haviland gave up 3 runs in 4 innings of work, while RHP Deryk Hooker allowed 1 run over 2 2/3 innings to earn the win, and RHP Jose Flores tossed a scoreless 9th to pick up the save. Midland will now take on Tulsa in the best-of-five Texas League Championship Series starting Tuesday in Tulsa.
