You want the rundown of tonight’s minor league performances? We got it for you...
T.K. Roby, the Rangers third round pick in 2020, made his pro debut tonight for low-A Down East. Roby went 2.1 IP and struck out 3 while not allowing a hit. He did walk one and hit a batter, though, and threw a pair of wild pitches. Still, an impressive debut for the 19 year old righthander.
In our Evan Carter Watch, we note that Carter went 1 for 5 with a double and three Ks. Luisangel Acuna had a single and a homer, and Keyber Rodriguez and Keithron Moss each had two hits.
For Hickory, I apparently jinxed Daniel Robert, since he allowed 2 runs in 1.1 IP, striking out one and allowing a two run home run. Justin Foscue, Kole Enright and Jake Guenther all homered.
Cole Winn went 4.2 IP in his AA debut for Frisco, allowing 4 runs on 4 hits, including a home run, while walking one, hitting a batter and striking out 6. Scott Engler gave up a run in 2 innings of work, striking out one. Cole Uvila allowed a run in the ninth despite not allowing a hit, due to a lead off walk, a balk, a ground out and a sac fly.
Sherten Apostel went 1 for 5 with 3 Ks. Davis Wendzel had a pair of hits.
Jason Bahr, making his AAA debut for Round Rock, also gave up 4 runs, though in 4.1 IP, giving up 4 hits, including a home run, walking 4 and striking out 3. He also hit a batter. Joe Barlow pitched to a pair of batters and retired them both.
The Express bats exploded, putting up 15 runs and knocking 5 home runs. Curtis Terry was a triple short of the cycle. Carl Chester and Jason Martin each had a single and a homer. Anderson Tejeda had a homer and two walks. Leody Taveras, unfortunately, was 0 for 5 with 3 Ks.
