A low scoring game on Saturday was countered by a slug fest on Sunday as the ‘Riders poured in 12 runs on 13 hits. Click here to read the game recap.
Star of the Game: LF Odubel Herrera – 3/5, 2R, HR, 3RBI, SO
Playing in the outfield for the first time in 64 games with the ‘Riders did nothing to foil Odubel’s rhythm at the plate. The Venezuelan smoked his second home run of the season to right-center field and raised his batting average to .348 in the Texas League with 34RBI.
In case you missed it:
-Frisco socked three home runs (all of the two-run variety) in a game for the first time since May 29 in a 13-4 thrashing of Tulsa. Odubel Herrera blasted his first Double-A home run of the season in that game; Chris Grayson and Ryan Rua went yard as well. In another similarity, Jerad Eickhoff pitched in both contests and earned the win.
-The RoughRiders have knocked 82 pitches out of the park this season.
-The last time the ‘Riders tallied double-digit runs in a game also occurred against the Missions in an 11-2 thumping on July 13 in San Antonio.
-Trever Adams was out of the lineup for the first time since June 4. It broke a streak of 48 straight games played for the Nebraskan.
-Gallo watch: 1-for-4, R, HR, 2RBI, 2SO
With his 15th homer with the ‘Riders, Joey begins to close in on back-to-back 40-home run season. He now sits at 36 in 2014, the most in professional baseball, with 34 regular season games to play.
