TEXAS LEAGUE  (Double-A)

Texas League Championship Series – Game #2

Midland RockHounds  2

Tulsa Drillers                  5

LP – Jensen 0-1 / 11.25

HR – Muncy (1), Robertson (1)

Tulsa managed to put 5 runs on the board over the first 4 innings against Midland, which would be all the Drillers would need to win Game #2 of the best-of-five Texas League Championship Series on Wednesday and even the series up at one game apiece. Starter Chris Jensen, who was solid all season for the RockHounds, had a shaky outing on Wednesday, allowing 5 runs on 7 hits over 4 innings of work to put the Hounds in a hole they could not climb out of. RHP Murphy Smith tossed 2 scoreless innings in relief, while RHP Ryan Dull pitched 1 2/3 perfect innings, and LHP Frank Gailey got the final out for Midland. With the RockHounds down by a run, first baseman Max Muncy homered in the top of the 2nd to tie things up. Muncy would also draw one of Midland’s only two walks later in the game. Daniel Robertson, starting at second base and batting leadoff, homered in the top of the 3rd to bring the Hounds within 2 runs, but that would be all the scoring the RockHounds would do on Wednesday. Shortstop Dusty Coleman singled and doubled, while outfielder Kent Matthes and pinch hitter D’Arby Myers both singled in the loss. The series will resume on Friday in Midland with RHP Shawn Haviland set to take the mound for the Hounds.
