Prospect Of The Game:

First Baseman Ryon Healy

(2 for 4 / Home Run / Double / 2 RBIs)

First baseman Ryon Healy helped lead the RockHounds to their sixth straight win on Saturday. Healy doubled in the Hounds’ first run in the bottom of the 1st inning to tie the game and came around to score the go-ahead run later in the same inning. He then hit his 5th home run, a solo shot, in the 5th inning to extend Midland’s lead to two. And with his 16 extra-base hits, Healy currently holds the Hounds’ best slugging percentage (.652). Shortstop Yairo Munoz had a pair of hits and drove in the go-ahead run in the 1st, while Franklin Barreto, making his first professional start at second base, collected 3 hits to extend his hitting streak to 8 games and also made a number of stellar plays in the field. Starter Raul Alcantara allowed 2 runs over 5 2/3 innings to earn his 1st win, while RHP Ryan Doolittle pitched a perfect 8th to extend his scoreless streak to 10 1/3 innings to start the season, and RHP Aaron Kurcz got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 2nd save.
