Down East sent out Wyatt Sparks, who got knocked around, allowing seven runs in four innings of work. Sparks allowed three homers while striking out two and walking two. Nick Lockhart threw a scoreless inning.
Luisangel Acuna went two for three with a stolen base and a homer. Dustin Harris and Alejandro Osuna each doubled.
Hickory’s offensive exploded in a 13-5 win. Jonathan Ornelas was a single shy of a cycle and also walked. Blaine Crim had a double and two home runs. Kellen Strahm had a double and two walks. David Garcia had two hits and three walks. Jose Acosta had a pair of hits. Miguel Aparicio had a homer.
Cole Winn threw a scoreless inning for Frisco in what I’m guessing is a tune up ahead of Sunday’s Futures Game. Ronny Henriquez went 4.2 IP and allowed four runs on five hits and four walks, striking out five. Nick Snyder threw another scoreless inning, striking out two.
Bubba Thompson had a pair of hits. J.P. Martinez and Steele Walker each had hits.
