Down East had Nick Lockhart on the mound for Thursday’s start. Lockhart began the year at Down East, struggled, went to the ACL Rangers in mid-July, had five outings there, and then was sent back to the Ducks, with Thursday being his first outing since his return.
Lockhart allowed three runs in five innings of work on seven hits, including a homer, with one walk and three strikeouts. I think we can call that a successful return for the 20 year old. Following Lockhart was Michael Brewer, who went 1.2 IP with two Ks and two hits allowed, and Destin Dotson, who had 1.1 scoreless innings.
Daniel Mateo was five for five with a stolen base. Thomas Saggese had four hits, and now has his OPS up to 892 for the season. Jayce Easley had a double and a walk. Alejandro Osuna had two hits, two walks and two stolen bases. Joe Acosta had a single and a double.
Hickory was supposed to have a doubleheader, but they were rained out.
Frisco was supposed to have a doubleheader, and did play a doubleheader, but it went badly. In the opener, their only hit was a one out single from Josh Jung in the seventh (and final) inning, narrowly avoiding being no hit. Justin Foscue and Josh Smith walked. Ty Thomas threw three scoreless innings.
In Game Two, Daniel Robert struck out three in 1.1 scoreless innings. Fernery Ozuna allowed a run in an inning of work on three hits and a walk. Bubba Thompson had a hit and a walk. Blaine Crim had a hit.
Yerry Rodriguez started for Round Rock and allowed five runs in five innings of work, striking out seven and walking three. Cole Uvila threw two shutout innings, walking three and allowing a hit.
Nick Solak had three hits. Leody Taveras had two hits and a walk. Sherten Apostel and Ryan Dorow each had two hits. Curtis Terry had a hit.
Dylan MacLean started in Surprise, and allowed three runs in two innings of work on three hits and three walks, striking out two. Anthony Hoopii-Tuionetoa had four strike outs against no walks or hits in three innings of work. Adrian Rodriguez went 0.2 IP with two hits, three walks and two strikeouts, allowing two runs. Luke Schiltz threw 1.1 scoreless on a walk, a hit and two Ks.
Josy Galan had a hit and a walk.
