Farmhand Of The Game:

Third Baseman Renato Nunez

(2 for 5 / Home Run / 3 RBIs)

With two on and one out in the bottom of the 1st, third baseman Renato Nunez ripped a 3-run homer to give the RockHounds an early lead that they would never relinquish as they notched the win in Game #2 of the Texas League Championship series on Wednesday. And the Hounds now just need to win one of the next three games in the best-of-five series to clinch their second straight Texas League championship. Nunez also singled in the 7th, while outfielder Jaycob Brugman homered in his fourth straight game, slugging a 2-run shot in the 4th, and also doubled and walked in the game. First baseman Anthony Aliotti singled, doubled twice and scored twice, and designated hitter Ryon Healy singled, doubled and drove in a run for the RockHounds. Starter Chris Jensen gave up 4 runs over 6 innings work to pick up the win. RHP Seth Frankoff tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings in relief, while RHP Tucker Healy came in to notch the final two outs in the 8th on strikeouts, and RHP Brendan McCurry allowed 2 runs, just 1 earned, in the 9th, but the Hounds hung on for the win. After an off-day on Thursday, the series shifts to Springdale, Arkansas as RHP Parker Frazier takes the mound on Friday as Midland attempts to clinch its second straight Texas League title.
