Shortstop Franklin Barreto

(1 for 4 / Double / RBI)

 

The RockHounds dropped their fourth straight on Tuesday. Starter Daniel Gossett allowed 6 runs, just 3 earned, over 5 2/3 innings to suffer his 2nd loss for the Hounds. His command was sharp though, and he struck out 6 while walking none. Shortstop Franklin Barreto doubled in the RockHounds’ only run of the night in the top of the 9th, while first baseman Viosergy Rosa singled and doubled. Catcher Beau Taylor and left fielder J.P. Sportman had a pair of hits apiece, and designated hitter Josh Rodriguez went 0 for 4 in his return to the RockHounds.

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Heath Fillmyer

(6 IP / 8 H / 1 ER / 1 BB / 6 K)

 

Stockton lost its eighth straight with the help of 5 errors on Tuesday night. Starter Heath Fillmyer pitched well, allowing 3 runs, just 1 earned, while striking out 6 over 6 innings of work. RHP Liam Hendriks struck out 1 while throwing a scoreless 7th inning in his first rehab appearance for the Ports. But after Stockton took a 2-run lead in the 7th inning, RHP Lou Trivino was charged with 3 runs, just 1 earned, in the top of the 9th to take the loss. Second baseman Joe Bennie doubled, walked and drove in 3 runs, while center fielder James Harris walked and singled in a run, and Bennie, Harris and Trivino, along with right fielder Seth Brown and first baseman Sandber Pimentel, all committed errors in the loss. But on a happier note, Bennie was named the California League Player of the Week after going 13 for 23 with 1 home run, 3 doubles and 6 RBIs for Stockton last week.

RHP Liam Hendriks: 1 IP / 0 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 1 K

RHP Lou Trivino: 1/3 IP / 1 H / 3 R / 1 ER / 1 BB / 0 K
