LP – Finnegan 1-2 / 4.76

HR – Barreto (6)



Prospect Of The Game:

Shortstop Franklin Barreto slugged his 6th home run, a solo shot, in the top of the 9th to give his team the lead. But RHP Kyle Finnegan gave up a 2-run homer with one out in the bottom of the 9th to take the loss as Frisco came back to win in a walk-off.

Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Matt Stalcup

(4 IP / 2 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 4 K)


The Ports moved RHP Casey Meisner out of the starting rotation to try to trun around his bad luck, but it didn’t seem to work on Tuesday.

The Ports managed just 1 run on 5 hits on Tuesday. Shortstop Richie Martin had a pair of singles and a walk in the loss.

RHP Casey Meisner: 3 IP / 3 H / 2 R / 1 ER / 2 BB / 2 K
