Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Paul Blackburn

(5 IP / 3 H / 1 ER / 3 BB / 8 K)

 

The Sounds ended up suffering the loss in the completion of a suspended game on Thursday. When the game originally began on April 21, starter Paul Blackburn allowed 1 run over 5 innings of work while shortstop Franklin Barreto homered for the Sounds’ only run, and the contest was tied 1-1 when a power outage in the 8th inning forced the suspension. When play resumed on Thursday, LHP Felix Doubront took over on the mound and ended up surrendering the winning run in the bottom of the 9th to take the loss as the Dodgers won in a walk-off. With catcher Stephen Vogt designated for assignment and third baseman Matt Chapman placed on the disabled list by Oakland on Thursday, the A’s recalled catcher Bruce Maxwell and first baseman Matt Olson from Nashville, and outfielder Kenny Wilson was reassigned to the Sounds from the RockHounds. A number of recent Sounds made significant contributions for the A’s on Thursday. Maxwell collected 3 hits, while Olson had 2 hits and 2 walks and drove in 2 runs. Center fielder Jaycob Brugman singled and drew a pair of walks, and second baseman Chad Pinder had 2 hits and drove in a run for the A’s.

Second Baseman Max Schrock

(2 for 4 / 2 Doubles / RBI)

 

LHP Evan Manarino had another rough start for the RockHounds on Thursday, allowing 6 runs over 6 innings of work to suffer his 4th loss for Midland. Second baseman Max Schrock doubled twice, scored twice and drove in a run, while first baseman Viosergy Rosa had a pair of singles and drove in 3, and third baseman Yairo Munoz singled, doubled and stole a base as the Hounds suffered their fourth straight defeat and their eighth loss in their last ten games on Thursday. The team also lost a pair of outfielders when Kenny Wilson was reassigned from the RockHounds to the Sounds and Tyler Marincov was placed on the disabled list with a broken left hand he suffered when he was hit by a pitch in Wednesday’s game. Marincov is set to undergo surgery in Arizona and is expected to be sidelined for at least six to eight weeks. Meanwhile, Midland outfielder J.P. Sportman will replace Marincov on the Texas League South Division All-Star squad, and RockHounds RHP Sam Bragg will take the place of RHP Lou Trivino, who was promoted to Nashville this week.
