Hans Crouse started for Frisco on Thursday, and he was very good. Crouse went five innings for the Roughriders, allowed no hits, struck out seven, walked three and hit a batter. The hit batter was to start the sixth, after which Crouse was lifted and the batter ended up scoring, so Crouse got dinged for a run. Cole Uvila had a scoreless inning of work.
Josh Jung went 3 for 4 with a homer and an HBP. J.P. Martinez had three hits. Anderson Tejeda had a double.
Cody Bradford started for Hickory and allowed five runs in 4.1 IP. He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out six. Kelle Strahm and Blaine Crim each homered. Frainyer Chavez and Miguel Aparicio each doubled.
For Down East, Florencio Serrano started. He allowed a run in three innings of work, striking out five and walking one.
Thomas Saggese was two for five with a home run. Keithron Moss and Antonio Cabello were each one for three with a walk. Dustin Harris was three for four with a double and a walk. Cody Freeman doubled.
Round Rock had a late night start and thus will be updated later.
