Midland RockHounds  2

Frisco RoughRiders      11

LP – Seddon 3-2 / 4.63

HR – Munoz (6)

Prospect Of The Game:

Shortstop Yairo Munoz

(1 for 3 / Home Run / Walk)

The RockHounds suffered their third straight defeat and their seventh loss in their last nine games on Wednesday, and Midland has now failed to score more than two runs in each of its last four contests. Shortstop Yairo Munoz provided one of the few highlights for the Hounds on Wednesday. The 22-year-old slugged his 6th home run in the top of the 1st inning off rehabbing LHP Cole Hamels to briefly give his team the lead. Munoz also walked in the game, while first baseman Viosergy Rosa doubled and scored a run, and second baseman Max Schrock singled twice in the loss. RHP Joel Seddon had a rough start for the RockHounds, allowing 9 runs in just 3 1/3 innings to suffer his 2nd loss for Midland. Meanwhile, outfielder Tyler Marincov left the game after getting drilled in the left hand with a pitch. The 25-year-old appears to be headed for the disabled list and could end up missing significant time. He tweeted about the injury on Wednesday night…

NEW YORK-PENN LEAGUE  (Class-A Short-Season)

Brooklyn Cyclones             6

Vermont Lake Monsters  1

LP – Martinez 0-1 / 1.80



Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Seth Martinez

(5 IP / 7 H / 1 ER / 0 BB / 3 K)


The Lake Monsters managed just 4 hits in their loss on Wednesday. 2015’s 11th-round draft pick for the A’s, left fielder James Terrell, singled twice and drove in his team’s only run, while shortstop Jesus Lage and first baseman Jarrett Costa both singled in the loss. RHP Seth Martinez, who was just sent down from the Snappers earlier in the day, was solid in his first start for Vermont, allowing just 1 run over 5 innings of work, but he still ended up suffering the loss for the Lake Monsters on Wednesday.
