(5 IP / 3 H / 1 ER / 2 BB / 3 K / Win)

RHP Joey Wagman was called up from extended spring training in Arizona to make the start for Midland on Tuesday and looked impressive, allowing just 1 run on 3 hits over 5 innings of work to earn the win in his Double-A debut. LHP Jim Fuller gave up 1 run in 3 innings of relief, and RHP Ryan Doolittle surrendered 2 runs in the 9th. Second baseman Colin Walsh singled, doubled, homered, walked and scored 3 times, while outfielder Matt Angle had a pair of doubles, a walk and drove in a run. First baseman Matt Olson singled in 2 runs and walked twice, and third baseman Ryon Healy and outfielders Josh Whitaker and Jaycob Brugman had a pair of hits apiece for the Hounds. In recent RockHounds roster moves, RHP Tanner Peters was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow injury, while LHP Chris Lamb was sent to extended spring training in Arizona. After making one start for Nashville, RHP Zach Neal was returned to the RockHounds and RHP Tim Atherton was reassigned from Stockton to Midland.

New Orleans Zephyrs  1

WP – Alvarez 1-0 / 0.00



Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher Pat Venditte

(4 IP / 4 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 3 K)


With scheduled starter Brad Mills ill with a bug that’s been sweeping through the Sounds clubhouse, Pat Venditte was called upon to make the emergency start for Nashville on Tuesday. And, fortunately, the switch-pitcher fared well in his first start of the season, tossing 4 shutout innings before giving up a home run to the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the 5th. Venditte ended up allowing 1 run on 4 hits in 4 innings of work, while RHP R.J. Alvarez struck out 2 in 2 scoreless innings to earn the win in his Nashville debut. RHP Fernando Rodriguez contributed 2 shutout innings of his own, and RHP Chad Smith got the final three outs to earn his 2nd save for the Sounds. Second baseman Joey Wendle walked, stole a base and doubled in Nashville’s first run of the game, while outfielder Kent Matthes drove in the team’s only other run of the day, and shortstop Andy Parrino and first baseman Anthony Aliotti had a pair of hits apiece for the Sounds.

Rehabbing RHP Jarrod Parker fared much better in his second start for Stockton on Tuesday, allowing 3 runs, just 2 earned, on 4 hits while walking none and striking out 7 over 5 innings of work to earn the win. RHP Joel Seddon then came on to strike out 6 in 3 perfect innings of relief, and RHP Andres Avila tossed a scoreless 9th to earn his 2nd save for Stockton. Center fielder J.P. Sportman had 3 hits, stole a base and drove in a run, while right fielder Justin Higley singled, doubled and scored, and designated hitter Tyler Marincov doubled, walked and drove in a run for the Ports.

Center fielder Brett Vertigan singled, walked twice, stole a base and scored, while shortstop Yairo Munoz singled in Vertigan to provide Beloit’s only run of the game.
