With the RockHounds down by three runs in the bottom of the 7th inning on Saturday, first baseman Matt Olson slugged a 2-run homer, his second in the last two nights and his 5th home run on the year, to bring Midland within a run. Unfortunately, that’s as close as the Hounds would get on Saturday. Olson also drew his 15th walk in the game, and the 21-year-old is now tied for the Texas League lead in both home runs and walks. Right fielder Jaycob Brugman had a pair of singles, a walk and drove in a run, while left fielder Chad Oberacker singled, walked and scored twice, and designated hitter Josh Whitaker singled, walked and drove in a run for the RockHounds. Starter Chris Lamb had another rough outing, allowing 6 runs on 9 hits over just 4 innings of work to take his 3rd loss. RHP Ryan Doolittle gave up 2 runs in 2 innings of relief, while RHP Jonathan Joseph tossed 1 scoreless frame in his debut for Midland, and RHP Tucker Healy threw 2 shutout innings in the loss. Joseph was called up from Stockton and added to the RockHounds’ roster before the game.
