Peoria

Chiefs Fall Friday

Quote:
For the second day in a row walks did in the Peoria Chiefs in a 4-3 loss to the Burlington Bees. The Friday night loss moves the Chiefs to 5-10 on the season with the series finale set for Saturday.

Both teams scored early unearned runs. The Chiefs got theirs in the fifth inning to tie the game 1-1. Brandon Riley walked, moved to second on a pickoff error and to third on a fielding error as Zach Jackson reached first. Riley scored on a fielders choice as Delvin Perez picked up the RBI.

Diego Cordeo worked into the seventh and the game was still tied 1-1 going into the eighth. Lars Nootbaar drew a leadoff walk and Nolan Gorman singled. Leandro Cedeno was hit by a pitch to load the bases and the Chiefs took a 2-1 lead on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Brendan Donovan.

The lead was short lived as Burlington plated three runs without a hit in the bottom of the inning. Reliever Sebastian Tabata issued a one-out walk and after a strikeout he walked four batters in a row to plate two runs and give Burlington a 3-2 lead. Thomas St. Clair entered the game and a sacrifice fly gave the Bees a 4-2 lead.

The Chiefs had a chance in the ninth against the Bees bullpen. Jackson led off with his second homer of the season to cut the Burlington lead to 4-3. Perez singled up the middle but he was left at second as the Chiefs lost by one.

Cordero took a no-decision as he allowed just one unearned run on six innings for his second straight quality start. The lefty walked one and struck out five. Tabata (1-1) allowed three runs in one hitless inning as he walked five and took the loss. St. Clair retired both batters he faced.

Memphis

Gomber's Gem Helps Redbirds Split with Round Rock

Quote:
Austin Gomber tossed a complete-game shutout in Game 2 of Saturday night's doubleheader, helping the Memphis Redbirds (8-8) split the double-dip with the Round Rock Express (Astros).

On the day, Adolis Garcia homered twice and drove in four runs, and Rangel Ravelo had three hits, three RBI, and scored two runs. John Nogowski was on base twice in each game.

With a fifth-inning single in Game 1, Tommy Edman extended his hitting streak to 10 games. He has a hit in 11 of his 13 games played this season.

Game 1: Round Rock 11, Memphis 6
The Redbirds led 6-2 heading into the top of the seventh, but the Express plated nine runs and finished an 11-6 win.

Garcia cranked a three-run home run in the fifth inning to break a 2-2 deadlock.

Alex Reyes started and tossed 3.0 innings, giving up one hit and striking out four. He threw 25 of his 40 pitches for strikes.

Game 2: Memphis 3, Round Rock 0
Gomber was spectacular in 7.0 innings, giving up just three hits and non after the fourth inning. He faced the minimum in his final five innings of work, including retiring nine-straight Express to end the ballgame.

He needed just 87 pitches, 55 of which went for strikes.

Garcia homered again in the nightcap, and Drew Robinson and Edmundo Sosa drove in Memphis' other runs.


Springfield

Cancel sends Naturals to 5-3 walk-off win in 10 innings

Quote:
The Springfield Cardinals (5-12) tied it in the top of the ninth, but Naturals (8-9) 2B Gabriel Cancel connected on a two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th, propelling Northwest Arkansas to the 5-3 walk-off win on Saturday night.

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Grant Gavin (3-1)
L: RHP Kodi Whitley (0-1)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
-Cardinals RHP Williams Perez and rehabbing Royals LHP Danny Duffy alternated scoreless frames before the Naturals broke through in the bottom of the 5th. With runners at second and third and two down, CF Khalil Lee laced a two-run single to center, lifting the Naturals ahead, 2-0.

-The Cardinals got on the board in the sixth on a run-scoring error, before tying it in the seventh with a two-out RBI single from RF Shane Billing, evening it at 2-2.

-The Naturals seized the lead right back in the bottom of the seventh with an RBI base hit from LF Nick Heath for the 3-2 advantage.

-Springfield tied it in the top of the ninth when LF Conner Capel, who had led off the inning with a single and moved to third throughout the frame, darted home on a passed ball to even it, 3-3.

-After Springfield failed to score in the top of the 10th, 2B Gabriel Cancel sent the final blow to left field with a game-winning two-run home run.

NOTABLES:
-With his RBI single tonight, RF Shane Billings is 5x10 with a homer and four RBIs through his first three starts of the season.

-RHP Williams Perez tossed his best start of the season, going 6.0 innings with just two runs on five hits, striking out a season-high nine batters in the no-decision.

-SS Kramer Robertson and CF Dylan Carlson both went 2x4 with a pair of singles apiece.


Palm Beach

Cardinals split twin bill with Mets, win series

Quote:
Due to weather on Friday night, the Palm Beach Cardinals and St. Lucie Mets played a doubleheader on Saturday in which the teams split.

The Cardinals shutout the Mets in the opening game 6-0 behind a masterful start by Johan Oviedo. The 21-year-old threw five shutout innings to lower his season ERA to 1.71 and struck out 7 in the process. Zach Prendergast pitched a perfect final two innings, striking out three.

At the plate, the Beach Birds wasted to time getting on the scoreboard with an RBI groundout in the first from Chase Pinder. In the fourth, Palm Beach extended its lead to 3-0 when Michael Perri hit an inside-the-park two-run homer to deep center field.

In the fifth, Alexis Wilson's RBI single and Rayder Ascanio's sac fly made it a 5-0 game. In the next frame, a wild pitch scored Bryce Denton who went 1-3.

Zach Kirtley had a game high three hits with Wilson and Perri adding multi-hit games of their own.

In the second half of the doubleheader, Edgar Gonzalez was rolling to begin the game. After allowing a two-out RBI double in the first inning followed by a second run on an error by Kirtley, Gonzalez sent down the next eight batters in order.

Palm Beach got one run back in the second on a Julio Rodriguez 404-foot blast, but that was the only offense the Cardinals would get.

The Mets jumped out to a 3-1 lead off of Gonzalez in the fourth and in the sixth scored one more unearned run off the Mountain View, California native. In total, the righty threw five innings allowing just one earned runs (four total) on six hits and two walks while striking out six.

Patrick Dayton threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen before Junior Fernandez relinquished the last run the Mets would score all night.

Once it was all over, the Mets won by a 6-1 final.

Despite the split, the Cardinals won their fourth series of the season after a series opening victory on Thursday.


Peoria

Shaw Collects Two Hits, RBI in 6-1 Chiefs Loss

Quote:
The Peoria Chiefs scored first but fell to the Burlington Bees 6-1 on Saturday evening.

The loss drops the Chiefs to 5-11 on the season with the entire Midwest League having Sunday off for the Easter holiday.

The Chiefs took the lead in the top of the third inning against Burlington starter Jose Soriano. An error at second base and a fielders' choice to shortstop put Edwin Figuera at first base with one down. Figurea stole second and moved to third on a throwing error by Harrison Wenson. With two down, the Chiefs took a 1-0 lead as Josh Shaw lined a single to left field.

The lead was short lived as the Bees bounced back against Kyle Leahy in the bottom of the inning. After Leahy struck out Wenson for his fifth straight strikeout, DC Arendas drew a walk and moved to third on a double by Michael Stefanic. Livan Soto singled to right to score Arendas as the Chiefs picked up an out at the plate with Stefanic tagged out by Ivan Herrera for 9-3-6-2 rundown out.

The game stayed tied into the sixth when the Chiefs left the bases loaded against reliever Tyler Smith. Burlington got a leadoff single and a one-out home run to take a 3-1 lead as Leahy was lifted for Mike Brettell who also made his 2019 debut on the mound. Brettell got out of the sixth but the Bees scored twice in the seventh on two singles, two errors and walk to take a 5-1 lead. The hosts added a run in the eighth against lefty Jacob Schlesener with two walks, a balk and a single for the 6-1 final score.

Leahy (0-1) took the loss in his Chiefs debut, allowing three runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings while walking one, hitting one and striking out six. Brettell allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits over 1 2/3 innings as he struck out one and walked one. Schlesener allowed one run on one hit and two walks as he struck out one in his one inning of work.

Memphis

Sosa Wins it for Redbirds in 10th

Quote:
Edmundo Sosa hit a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th inning to propel the Memphis Redbirds (9-8) to a 5-3 win over the Round Rock Express (Astros) Sunday afternoon at AutoZone Park.

With the game tied at 3 heading into the top of the 10th, Jesus Cruz entered with the runner placed on second base as part of Minor League Baseball's extra-innings rules. He promptly got a pop-out and a strikeout, and then he took a comebacker off his back but kept his composure for a put-out to end the inning.

Max Schrock was placed on second to start Memphis' 10th inning, and he was bunted over by Ramon Urias before Sosa launched the game-winning home run to left field to cue the celebration.

Jake Woodford was outstanding in a start for Memphis, working 7.0 innings and giving up just one run on three hits with four strikeouts. He lowered his season ERA to 1.16 over four starts.

Facing many of the same Astros prospects he faced in last season's Pacific Coast League championship-clinching win at AutoZone Park on September 15, Woodford again had their number after 7.1 three-hit, shutout innings last season. In two starts at AutoZone Park against the Triple-A Astros, Woodford is 2-0 and has a 0.64 ERA with just one run and six hits allowed in 14.1 innings.

Sosa started the scoring for Memphis with an RBI single in the bottom of the second. The game was tied at 1 until the bottom of the sixth, when Adolis Garcia hit a sacrifice fly ahead of Andrew Knizner sneaking an RBI knock up the middle. The Express tied the game in the eighth with two runs off Chris Ellis.

Tommy Edman was 0-for-4 with a strikeout, ending his 10-game hitting streak. He hit .413 (19-46) during the stretch.

Memphis

Redbirds Split Series with Round Rock

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (9-9) were hampered by the home run Monday afternoon at AutoZone Park and lost the series finale to the Round Rock Express (Astros), 9-4.

Memphis pitching gave up four long balls, with two coming to Taylor Jones in his first two at-bats of the game. Yordan Alvarez blasted his 10th of the season in the ninth inning, and Jack Mayfield added one in the ninth as well.

On the Redbirds' side, Johan Mieses had two home runs of his own and finished the game with three RBI. He also made a run-saving diving catch in right field. John Nogowski had two hits for Memphis, and he drove in the club's other run in the ballgame.

Mieses' two homers marked the first two-homer game for a Redbird hitter this year.

Genesis Cabrera started and allowed four runs on four hits in 4.0 innings, and he was followed out of the Memphis bullpen by Ryan Meisinger, Tommy Layne, and Chris Beck.

Palm Beach

Fagalde flourishes in Palm Beach victory over Jupiter

Quote:
Alex Fagalde led the way with seven strong innings in a 6-3 Palm Beach victory over Jupiter.

Palm Beach jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second after Julio Rodriguez hit an RBI double and was followed by Bryce Denton's RBI single.

It became a 3-0 game in the third when Chase Pinder reached on an error that scored Justin Toerner from third.

In the fourth, Justin Toerner hit an RBI groundout and Jose Martinez scored on a wild pitch leading to a 5-0 lead for the Beach Birds.

The Cardinals attacked the Miami Marlins' former first round pick Braxton Garrett, tagging him for five total runs and five hits through five innings.

Cardinals' starter Alex Fagalde was flawless on the mound through five innings allowing just a solo hit and retiring 12 of the first 13 batters he faced. He got into trouble in the sixth allowing a run on an RBI groundout and then allowed a two-run homer in the seventh, his first in 23 innings. He finished with seven full innings pitched allowing just those three runs on four hits while striking out seven.

Bryan Dobzanski tossed a scoreless eighth and Junior Fernandez earned his fourth save of the season after throwing a scoreless ninth.

Denton and Rodriguez both had a season high three hits in the victory.


Peoria

Tommy Parsons Tosses 2-Hit Shutout to Beat Quad Cities

Quote:
Tommy Parsons threw the first complete game shutout of the Midwest League season Monday night as the Peoria Chiefs blanked the Quad Cities River Bandits 7-0 at Dozer Park.

The two-hitter victory moves the Chiefs to 6-11 on the season with two games left on the homestand.

Peoria got on the board early in the bottom of the second against Quad Cities starter Mark Moclair. Brendan Donovan was hit by a pitch with one out, and advanced to second on a check-swing groundout from Ivan Herrera. With two outs, Brandon Riley ripped a single down the left field line to score Donovan from second and put the Chiefs ahead 1-0.

The third inning was the only frame in which the River Bandits got a hit against Parsons. Andy Pineda doubled to right with one out but was thrown out at third as he attempted to stretch for a triple. The next batter, Trey Dawson, also doubled to right and Parsons walked Ross Adolph to put two runners on base. Jeremy Pena flew out to right and the visitors did not get another hit all game long.

The Chiefs added insurance in the bottom of the third against River Bandits reliever Humberto Castellanos. Castellanos entered for Moclair after he came up with an injury during Lars Nootbaar's plate appearance. Nootbaar worked a one out walk, and Brady Whalen launched a two-run homerun to put the Chiefs up 3-0, which was his first of the season.

Donovan started the bottom of the fourth by lacing a double down the right field line, and advanced to third on a groundout by Herrera. Riley reached on a fielder's choice to second and Donovan scored ahead of the throw to push the Chiefs lead to 4-0.

Peoria continued to pad their lead, putting up a three spot in the bottom of the fifth to push the lead to 7-0. Nolan Gorman led off with a single and advanced to second after Whalen walked. Leandro Cedeno doubled to plate Gorman to make the score 5-0. Donovan singled after Cedeno to score Whalen from second to increase Peoria's lead 6-0. With runners at the corners, Herrera hit a sac fly to deep center field to score Cedeno and give the Chiefs a 7-0 lead.

Parsons (3-0) had thrown just 74 pitches as he went back to the mound for the ninth inning. He got Dawson to ground out and he struck out Adolph for the first two outs. Pena reached on a strikeout-wild pitch to end a streak of 15 straight retired by Parsons. Another wild pitch and a walk to Enmanuel Valdez put two River Bandits on base. Parsons got Marty Costes to groundout to second base on pitch 102 to end the contest. The complete-game shutout was the first by the Chiefs since Jake Dahlberg beat Clinton August 13, 2018. Parsons tallied six strikeouts while allowing two hits and two walks en route to his first complete game and shutout of his career.

Cardinals fall 9-6 to Sod Poodles in first-ever loss to Amarillo

Quote:
The Springfield Cardinals (6-13) fell 9-6 to the Sod Poodles (8-11) at Hammons Field on Tuesday night. The loss marks the first time the Cardinals have ever lost to Amarillo.

The Sod Poodles are the newest member of the Texas League and the Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.

DECISIONS:
W: LHP Kyle McGrath (1-0)
L: RHP Casey Meisner (0-2)
S: RHP David Bednar (1)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- After Springfield turned a 5-1 deficit into a 6-5 lead with a five-run fourth, Amarillo quickly responded with three runs in the top of the fifth to go back ahead for good off a one-run single by Chris Baker and a two-run double by Edward Olivares.

- A walk by SS Kramer Robertson and a single from LF Scott Hurst gave the Cardinals two on with no outs down 9-6 in the ninth, but Sod Poodles reliever Bednar answered by getting PH Brian O'Keefe and 2B Irving Lopez on back-to-back strikeouts before ending the game on a groundout by RF Dylan Carlson.

NOTABLES:
- Springfield's 1-2-3 hitters combined for an 0-for-13 night, with Lopez and Carlson both going hitless in five at-bats and the rehabbing Tyler O'Neill finishing 0-for-3.

- PH Shane Billings capped Springfield's five-run fourth with a two-run go-ahead home run that put the Cardinals up 6-5. Billings is 7-for-15 with two homers and six RBIs since making his 2019 Springfield debut on April 17.

- Hurst had a 3-for-3 night and is 5-for-7 in his last two games. The Double-A newcomer is looking to heat up after having collected just one multi-hit outing in his first 17 games with Springfield.

- After the Cardinals tagged Amarillo starter Jesse Scholtens for six runs in four innings, Sod Poodles relievers combined to allow just two hits over 5.0 scoreless innings of work.

Quote:
The Peoria Chiefs collected just one hit and fell 8-0 to the Quad Cities River Bandits Tuesday afternoon at Dozer Park. The loss drops the Chiefs to 6-12 on the season as they wrap up the homestand Wednesday.

The River Bandits got on the board against Chiefs starter Alvaro Seijas in the top of the second. Scott Schreiber was hit by a pitch, and Jonathan Lacroix walked to put runners on first and second with one out. David Hensley singled to left field, and Schreiber scored on a fielding error by Chiefs left fielder Leandro Cedeno to put the River Bandits up 1-0.

Quad Cities padded their lead in the top of the fourth. With one out, Lacroix and Hensley hit back-to-back solo homeruns to push the River Bandits lead to 3-0.

The River Bandits added one more run in the top of the sixth off Chiefs reliever Evan Sisk. With two outs, Ross Adolph doubled and then scored on a double by Trey Dawson to put Quad Cities up 4-0. They added four runs in the ninth for the 8-0 win.

Though they drew three walks, the Chiefs were held hitless through six innings by Austin Hansen and RJ Freure. Cedeno led off the seventh with a solid single to center but he was left stranded at first base. The Chiefs drew two more walks in the eighth inning against Freure but Delvin Perez and Lars Nootbaar were both stranded in scoring position. The only Chiefs player to reach base more than once in the game was Ivan Herrera as he walked twice,

Seijas (1-2) took the loss after throwing five innings, allowing five hits, two earned runs, two walks, while tallying seven strikeouts. Sisk allowed one run on two hits with one walk, and two strikeouts in his one inning. Fabian Blanco pitched one shutout inning, allowing only one hit, and notching one strikeout. Freddy Pacheco also pitched one shutout inning, allowing one hit, one walk, and striking out one. Edgar Escobar pitched the ninth inning and allowed four runs on four hits with one walk.

Cardinals: Connor Jones, RHP (No. 16) – 2 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K (Double-A Springfield)
Jones fired 27 of his 42 pitches for strikes as he cruised through two innings of relief. The 24-year-old began his career as a starter, but showed upside pitching out of the bullpen during the Arizona Fall League and has begun the 2019 campaign pitching in relief as well. Jones has made seven appearances thus far, given up four runs (10 1/3 innings), walked 11 and struck out 12.

Memphis

Redbirds Start Road Swing with 7-5 Win

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (10-9) locked down on the mound in the latter innings and came up with timely hits in a 7-5 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) Wednesday night in Omaha, Neb. The Redbirds are at the start of a 13-game road trip, their longest since August 2015.

John Nogowski was 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI, and Drew Robinson walked twice and scored three runs. Andrew Knizner and Edmundo Sosa both had two hits in the game as well. Nogowski now has hits in nine of his last 10 games, and Knizner has three-straight multi-hit games and knocks in nine-of-10 as well.

Harold Arauz started and allowed four runs in his first 4.0 innings, but after a two-run home run tied the game in the bottom of the fourth he settled down and retired the final eight Storm Chasers (9-10) he faced. He picked up the win with 6.0 innings of work, allowing four runs, three earned, on seven hits with four strikeouts.

After Arauz, Tommy Layne retired the side in order in the seventh and Chris Ellis got three-straight outs in the eighth. At that point, Memphis had taken a 7-4 lead as its pitching had put down 14-straight Storm Chasers.

The breathing room proved important, as Omaha plated a run to make it 7-5 in the bottom of the ninth and had the bases loaded with two outs before Ellis got a strikeout to end the ballgame.

Tommy Edman stole his fourth base of the season, and Robinson swiped his third.

Palm Beach sweeps Jupiter in dramatic fashion

Quote:
For the second straight night, the Palm Beach Cardinals (15-5) were walk-off winners against the Hammerheads (7-12), however it took 10 innings this time in a 2-1 final.

The teams were scoreless through five innings before Jupiter got on the board from James Nelson's solo home run to straight away center field. That was the only blemish by starter Angel Rondon who improved his ERA to 2.08 after allowing that single run in six innings pitched while surrendering four hits and striking out seven.

All night, the Cardinals had multiple opportunities to get on the scoreboard however did not do so until the bottom of the seventh. Bryce Denton hit a lead-off double and was pinch run for by Chase Pinder. Rayder Ascanio dropped down a sacrifice bunt and Jupiter threw to third to get the lead runner and the ball ended up in left field, allowing both runners to advance.

Later in the frame, the Cardinals had runners on the corner with no outs. Luken Baker hit a sharp lineout and Justin Toerner was hit by a pitch to load the bases with just one out. Jupiter would keep Palm Beach off the board after inducing an inning-ending double play with Julio Rodriguez at bat.

Palm Beach was just 2-16 with runners in scoring position but were able to squeak out a win.

Zach Prendergast kept the Cardinals within striking distance throwing two scoreless innings of relief and striking out four.

In the 10th, Jupiter loaded the bases with their three-four-five hitters due up and no outs recorded. Patrick Dayton kept the Hammerheads from scoring when, in order, Jupiter lined out to shallow right field, hit a line out to shortstop, and struck out.

In the home half of the final inning, Yariel Gonzalez hit a short chopper to the pitcher and Zach Kirtley, the special extra innings runner that began the inning on second base, was able to smartly advance to third after the pitcher had stopped paying attention and fired the ball to first.

Two intentional walks followed before Rayder Ascanio's third hit of the game sent the Beach Birds home with a win.


Peoria

Quote:

Memphis

Redbirds Plate Four in Ninth for Comeback Win

Quote:
The Memphis Redbirds (11-9) scored four times in the top of the ninth to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 6-4 lead and snatched a win from the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) Thursday night in Omaha, Nebraska.

The win is Memphis' seventh in its last nine games.

Tommy Edman was 3-for-5 with a home run and a double, and he had the go-ahead hit with a ninth-inning single that scored Andrew Knizner. Trailing 4-2, Memphis' ninth inning started with Rangel Ravelo reaching on an error and scoring on an Adolis Garcia triple. Knizner stepped in and promptly singled to plate Garcia and tie the game at 4.

That gave way to Edman's base knock to center field to give the Redbirds the lead, and John Nogowski gave Memphis some breathing room with a bases-loaded walk.

With a 6-4 advantage, Hunter Cervenka returned to the mound in the bottom of the ninth after pitching the eighth and got two groundouts and a strikeout to end the ballgame.

Drew Robinson also had three hits for Memphis, and Ramon Urias went 2-for-4.

After Memphis scored in the top of the first, Omaha (9-11) scored the game's next three runs on a wild pitch, a hit-by-pitch, and a walk. That chased Alex Reyes from the game, and John Fasola followed in relief and gave up a run with three walks in 2.1 innings.

Chasen Shreve tossed scoreless sixth and seventh innings, with the Redbirds getting within 4-2 in the sixth on Edman's second home run of the season.

Neither team scored in the seventh and eighth, setting up Memphis' four-run ninth to snag the ballgame.

The Redbirds' defense turned three double plays in the game.


Springfield

Shew tosses 6.0 shutout innings in Cardinals win over Sod Poodles

Quote:
Anthony Shew tossed 6.0 shutout innings Thursday night at Hammons Field, setting up the Springfield Cardinals (7-14) with their first shutout win of the season in an 8-0 final in the series finale against the Amarillo Sod Poodles (9-12).

DECISIONS:
W: RHP Anthony Shew (1-2)
L: RHP Emmanuel Ramirez (1-2)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- Springfield chased Ramirez after just 0.2 innings pitched, scoring four quick runs off the Sod Poodles starter. The first crossed on an Elehuris Montero bases-loaded walk, and then a bases-clearing double by Jose Godoy gave Shew and the Cardinals a 4-0 lead.

- Rehabbing St. Louis Cardinals OF Tyler O'Neill hit his first home run as a Springfield Cardinal in the fifth inning, pushing the Cardinals lead to 5-0.

NOTABLES:
- Despite already posting three starts with one earned run allowed, Shew put on his best performance of 2019 on Thursday, allowing just five hits and a walk while striking out a season-high seven over his 6.0 shutout innings. The start dropped his ERA to 1.93, and tonight marked his fifth consecutive start walking two batters or less.

- Chris Chinea tripled for the first time since July 16, 2015 with Johnson City (Rookie). His three-bagger scored Irving Lopez and gave the Cardinals a 6-0 lead in the seventh.

- Conner Capel hit his second home run of the season and first since April 14 vs. Northwest Arkansas with a two-run blast in the seventh that cemented the 8-0 final.

- Cardinals relievers RHP Roel Ramirez (2.0 IP) and RHP Kodi Whitley (1.0 IP) tossed 3.0 shutout innings to close out the game.

Memphis

Memphis' Late-Inning Magic Continues in 7-3 Victory

Quote:
A day after scoring four runs in the top of the ninth en route to a 6-4 win, the Memphis Redbirds (12-9) scored all seven of their runs in the final four innings and captured a 7-3 win over the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) Friday night in Omaha, Nebraska.

Memphis has won eight of its last 10 games.

Austin Gomber got the win after 6.0 innings of work allowing just two unearned runs. He struck out eight and walked four, and the Storm Chasers (9-12) had just three hits. He is 3-0 on the season.

Two big Memphis home runs provided five runs in the later innings, as Rangel Ravelo's three-run shot in the top of the seventh gave the Redbirds a 4-2 lead, and Adolis Garcia's sixth longball of the year in the eighth made it 6-3 in favor of Memphis.

Seven Redbirds had a hit in the game, and Edmundo Sosa, Drew Robinson, and Max Schrock had two-hit games for the Redbirds.

Omaha scored two runs in the bottom of the third coming off an error, and the 2-0 lead remained until Memphis got on the board in the top of the sixth when John Nogowski launched a sacrifice fly that scored Robinson, who reached on an error.

Gomber finished his outing with a 1-2-3 bottom of the sixth inning, and Memphis took a lead it would not relinquish in the top of the seventh after Ravelo launched his second home run of the season.

Omaha came within a run at 4-3 after a tally in the bottom of the seventh, but Garcia provided some breathing room with a two-run shot in the top of the eighth to move the score to 6-3. The Storm Chasers loaded the bases with nobody out in the bottom-half of the inning, but Jesus Cruz struck out the side to keep the three-run Memphis lead.

The Redbirds added a seventh run in the top of the ninth, before Chris Beck tossed a scoreless ninth to finish the ballgame.

Schrock also had his third stolen base of the year in the game.


Springfield

Cardinals rally in 8th for 3-2 win over 1st-place RoughRiders

Quote:
Back-to-back RBI doubles from Kramer Robertson and Dylan Carlson sent the Springfield Cardinals (8-14) past the Texas League South Division leading Frisco RoughRiders (13-9) 3-2 on Friday in front of 4,236 fans at Hammons Field.

DECISIONS:
W: LHP Jacob Patterson (3-1)
L: RHP Blake Bass (1-1)
S: RHP Connor Jones (1)

MOMENTS THAT MATTERED:
- After Frisco took a 2-1 lead in the top half of the eighth, Springfield immediately responded in the bottom half. DH Shane Billings started the inning with a single. Two batters later, Robertson ripped a one-out double to left and advanced to third on the throw home, scoring Billings. Next, Carlson blasted another double to the wall in left that easily brought Robertson home for the winning run.

- After Cardinals RHP Merandy Gonzalez allowed a home run, a walk and a single in the first four batters of the eighth inning, Patterson came in and quickly induced an inning-ending double play to keep Springfield within a run.

- The response of Cardinals starter Williams Perez was perhaps the game's biggest story. The right-hander allowed a leadoff home run to Christian Lopes before going on to pitch 7.0 full innings, allowing just that one run on four hits and three walks while striking out seven.

NOTABLES:
- Combined with Cardinals RHP Anthony Shew's 6.0 shutout innings on Thursday vs. the Sod Poodles, Cardinals starters have allowed just one run over their past 13.0 innings.

- Patterson has now gone three straight appearances without allowing a baserunner. He leads all Cardinals pitchers with three wins.

- Cardinals 1B Chris Chinea tied the game 1-1 with a solo home run in the fifth. It was Chinea's third homer of the season and first since April 17.
