‘Riders Rewind – May 19

The RoughRiders were shut out for nine innings in a three-pitcher effort by the San Antonio Missions on Monday. Big league rehabber Casey Kelly tossed six scoreless innings with no walks and six strikeouts as the ‘Riders failed to score a run in a game for the first time this season. Click here to read the full game recap.

Rymer Liriano showed why he ranks highly in the Padres farm system. The outfielder played all three spots in the series and hit 6-for-13 with two doubles, a grand slam, five runs scored and another five driven in along with three walks and two stolen bases. He struck out once.

The RoughRiders return to Dr Pepper Ballpark after a 3-5 road trip and plenty of questions about their bullpen as the Tulsa Drillers come to town for a three-game series.

Star of the Game: 1B Trever Adams – 3/4

Adams shined in an otherwise bleak afternoon for the RoughRiders’ offense. The 25-year-old accounted for half of his team’s hits, and all three came against a major leaguer in Kelly who appeared well on his way to complete recovery from Tommy John surgery. Adams is toting a .397 average in his last 14 games at the plate (23-for-58) and leads the RoughRiders in runs scored this season (26).

For the second straight game, the Missions posted a five-run inning against the RoughRiders. San Antonio scored the final eight runs of the ballgame and overcame a 5-1 hole to win 9-5. Click here to read the full game recap.

Star of the Game: DH Tomás Telis – 3/4, 2B, SB

Telis doubled for the fourth straight game on Sunday and continues to crank out base hits at the plate. The switch-hitting catcher also has 11 RBI in his last 12 games and is batting a white hot .395 (30-for-76) at the dish in the month of May.

The native of El Tigre, Venezuela is also a deceptive basestealer. Telis doesn’t just swipe second base, either. He is a perfect 5-for-5 this when grabbing the more difficult third base bag and has been caught stealing third three times in his career (33 attempts).

 

 

Enjoy the highlights and thanks for tuning in.
