RHP Jonathan Joseph turned in his second straight strong start on Saturday, allowing 5 hits while striking out 5 over 7 shutout innings to earn his 6th win for the RockHounds. Since reaching the Double-A level for the first time this season, the 27-year-old minor league veteran has been impressive. And in 14 innings over his last 2 starts, Joseph has allowed just 1 earned run. After Joseph exited, RHP Tucker Healy pitched a perfect 8th, and RHP Ryan Dull got the final three outs in the 9th to notch his 8th save and complete the 5-hit shutout on Saturday. Outfielder Matt Angle singled, stole a base and scored Midland’s first run in the top of the 1st, while second baseman Colin Walsh singled in a run for the Hounds. And with Matt Olson and Renato Nunez set to participate in the Futures Game, infielder Rangel Ravelo was assigned to Midland on Saturday and went 0 for 3 with a walk in his RockHounds debut.

RHP Chris Jensen turned in his second straight strong start for the RockHounds, allowing just 1 unearned run on 2 hits and striking out 7 over 7 innings of work to earn his 5th win, while RHP Tucker Healy tossed 1 scoreless inning in relief to post his 2nd save in the first game of Thursday’s doubleheader at San Antonio.

But Midland still trailed 1-0 heading into the top of the 7th, when catcher Carson Blair blasted his 5th home run to tie the game. Designated hitter Renato Nunez then hit a 3-run homer in the 8th to provide the margin of victory for Midland. And Nunez is now second in home runs in the A’s minor league system, trailing only Beloit first baseman Sandber Pimentel, who has 10.

Designated hitter Michael Soto singled, doubled, walked and drove in 3, while outfielder Brett Vertigan collected 3 hits, including a double, and drove in a pair, and third baseman Matt Chapman reached base 5 times, on a single, 2 walks and 2 walks doubles while also driving in a run and scoring 3 times.
