With the RockHounds down by a run in the bottom of the 7th inning, center fielder Jaycob Brugman led off the home half of the inning by belting his 4th home run of the season to tie the game for Midland. He also singled and walked in the game. Later in the same inning, with men on second and third, left fielder J.P. Sportman singled in both runners to give the RockHounds a temporary 2-run advantage. But RHP Trey Cochran-Gill gave back 2 runs in the top of the 8th to tie up the game again, and RHP Ryan Doolittle surrendered 2 runs in the top of the 9th to take the loss. Designated hitter Viosergy Rosa slugged a solo shot with two outs in the bottom of the 9th to bring the Hounds back within a run, but that’s as close as they would get before dropping the second game of their 4-game series with Corpus Christi. Starter Chris Jensen allowed 3 runs over 5 innings of work on Wednesday. Meanwhile, RHP Tanner Peters, who had been on the RockHounds disabled list, was released by the A’s.
