Pitcher Parker Frazier

(6 IP / 5 H / 0 ER / 2 BB / 5 K / Win)

RHP Parker Frazier, who was acquired from the Arizona organization earlier in the month, turned in his third straight quality start on Tuesday, allowing just 1 unearned run while striking out 5 over 6 innings of work to earn his 3rd win for Midland. And Frazier has now failed to allow an earned run in 20 2/3 innings over his last 3 starts for the RockHounds. Catcher Nick Rickles singled and slugged a 2-run homer, while first baseman Rangel Ravelo singled, doubled and drove in a pair, and outfielder Chad Oberacker collected 2 hits and 2 walks, stole 2 bases and scored 3 times in the win. Meanwhile, Midland’s saves leader, RHP Ryan Dull, was promoted to Nashville and Stockton’s saves leader, RHP Brendan McCurry, was reassigned to the RockHounds.

Nashville Sounds  0

LP – Neal 7-4 / 3.07



Farmhand Of The Game:

Outfielder Dayan Viciedo

(1 for 3 / Double / Walk)


Nashville was shut out on just 4 hits on Tuesday. Outfielder Dayan Viciedo walked and doubled for the Sounds’ only extra-base hit in the loss. And a throwing error by shortstop Andy Parrino followed by a fielding error by second baseman Joey Wendle opened the door to a big 7-run 2nd inning for Iowa that helped to do in the Sounds on Tuesday. Starter Zach Neal was charged with 8 runs, just 1 earned, over 7 innings of work to take his 4th loss, while RHP Ryan Dull, who just joined the roster from the RockHounds, allowed 1 run in 2 innings of relief in his Triple-A debut. Dull replaced RHP R.J. Alvarez, who was recalled by Oakland. Infielder Max Muncy also rejoined the A’s and RHP Aaron Brooks, who was acquired from Kansas City in the Ben Zobrist trade, was assigned to the Sounds.

Starter Chris Lamb allowed just 1 run over 5 innings of work, while switch-pitcher Pat Venditte gave up 1 run in 2 innings of relief in his third rehab appearance. A passed ball by catcher Jason Nottingham with two outs in the 9th opened the door to 3 unearned runs, all charged to RHP Corey Walter, which tied the game, and RHP Joel Seddon then gave up the winning run in the top of the 10th to take the loss for Stockton.
