San Antonio sent the ‘Riders packing on Friday with an 8-3 defeat at Wolff Stadium. Frisco finished its road trip with a 3-5 mark and heads into the Midland series 1.5 games behind the RockHounds for first place in the Texas League South Division. Read the complete game recap here.

In Friday’s series finale with San Antonio, the RoughRiders jumped to an early 3-0 lead, but watched the Missions storm back and score eight unanswered runs.

The game tipped permanently in the Missions’ favor in the fourth inning. Frisco trailed 5-3 at the start of the frame. Jon Edwards, pitching in relief of ‘Riders starter Kyle Lotzkar, walked the first two batters he faced and gave up a ground rule double that put San Antonio up 6-3.

After an intentional walk loaded the bases with one out, the ‘Riders had a chance to turn a double play to end the inning. Instead, an error on Rougned Odor led to two more runs for the Missions, who coasted to an 8-3 win and took the series.


Enjoy the highlights and thanks for tuning in.
