Home Sweet Home: Turning things around

Ballpark_0715

The Frisco RoughRiders began a four-game home stand against the San Antonio Missions Sunday hoping to turn things around and put aside their recent struggles in July.  This month, Frisco has won just four of the 12 games, and went 1-5 on their last home stand.

This short home stand will also feature three Rangers rehabbers.  Craig Gentry, recovering from a non-displaced fracture to his left hand, started at center field on Sunday.  Outfielder Jeff Baker was placed on the disabled list June 18 after spraining his right thumb and will begin a rehab assignment Monday in Frisco.  Colby Lewis will also rehab with the ‘Riders for a second time this season, recovering from a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow from last July and has battled triceps tendinitis and muscular soreness since.  Lewis will make the start on Wednesday.

Nick McBride and Keyvius Sampson faced off yesterday.  These are the matchups we expect to see on the mound for the rest of this series:

Monday: RHP Kevin Pucetas (8-7, 4.84 ERA) vs RHP Matt Wisler (4-3, 3.15 ERA)

Tuesday: RHP  Arlett Mavare (1-2, 6.12 ERA) vs RHP Donn Roach (6-8-2, 3.93 ERA)

Wednesday: RHP Colby Lewis (0-0, 7.71 ERA) vs TBA
