Frisco dropped the first game in their series with Corpus Christi 5-1 on Saturday night. The RoughRiders wore their pink jerseys for the second straight night and finished 1-1 in the rosy outfits. Click here to read the full game recap.
The ‘Riders fell behind 2-0 in the first inning of Joe Saunders’ second rehab appearance. The game turned in the third when Jake Smolinski grounded out to short. Smolinski hit the ball sharply to the edge of the infield and appeared to beat out a long throw from Corpus Christi shortstop Jio Mier.
First base umpire Ryan Simmons did not see the call that way, however, and an enraged Smolinski was ejected from the game. He was joined by his field manager, Jason Wood, not long after. The ‘Riders would have potentially had runners on first and second with one out, but the call took the wind out of the proverbial sails as the ‘Riders left 13 men stranded on Saturday.
The team has already clinched a winning record on the eight-game homestand, which concludes on Mother’s Day afternoon against the Hooks. Coverage starts 1:40 p.m. on www.ridersbaseball.com.
Enjoy the highlights and thanks for tuning in.
