‘Riders Rewind – May 8

Crew_DeuceMiss the last RoughRiders game? Catch up on the action or relive the highlights with ‘Riders Rewind, a daily capsule of yesterday’s big moments. Listen to previous editions of ‘Riders Rewind here.

On a soggy, cool night at Dr Pepper Ballpark, the RoughRiders took the series opener from the Corpus Christi Hooks, 5-3. Click here to read the full game recap.

Thursday’s game marked the first time the ‘Riders lineup did not include either Rougned Odor or Luis Sardinas. For at least one night, their absence did not rain too heavily on the offensive output (as it seemed the weather would inititially.)

In addition to a red-hot Tomás Telis, the bottom of the order generated considerable momentum on Thursday night. Teodoro Martinez, Jake Skole and Edwin Garcia batted a combined 6-for-11 at the dish and scored three runs.

The ‘Riders moved to 4-1 on the current homestand and can clinch a winning record for the eight-game stretch with win over Corpus Christi Friday night. Coverage starts 6:40 p.m. on


Enjoy the highlights and thanks for tuning in.
