They Came to Play

The RoughRiders earned the right to feel good about themselves after they emerged from the Permian basin as winners of 3-of-4. While the pitching battled itself at times as much as Midland’s potent lineup (season-high 11 walks on Wednesday), the offense shelled the RockHounds for 44 hits and 25 runs. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game(s): 1B Joey Gallo – 1/4, R, HR, 2RBI, BB, 2SO

Impossible to ignore Joey for the second straight night after he knocked game-winning home run with two outs in the top of the ninth in a tie ballgame. The 20-year-old moves into a tie for the minor league home run lead with friend Kris Bryant, each with 33 jacks on the season. Joey also moves into a tie for fifth in the Texas League with 12 home runs. The T.L. is paced by Preston Tucker’s 17. However, with Tucker now in Triple-A, the active leader is Corpus Christi’s Telvin Nash with 15.

In case you missed it:

-Patrick Cantwell finished 0-for-2 with two runs, a walk and two hit-by-pitches. He also reached on an error.

-Cantwell leads the Texas League with 13 hit-by-pitches this season.

-Another double for Trever Adams places him in third place in the Texas League with 23 two-baggers this season. Arkansas’ Alex Yarbrough leads the league with 33.

-J.T. Wise raised his batting average 88 points after a 4-for-4 night in game two of the double header on Tuesday.

This Split Tastes Pretty Good

Miss 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.

The RoughRiders earned the doubleheader split on Tuesday the hard way. After Midland usurped the ‘Riders with a Dusty Coleman two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth (remember, they only play seven innings in a twin bill) to win 7-6, Frisco buckled the chinstrap and won 8-3 in game two. In both cases, the ‘Riders fell behind in the first inning and rallied to take the lead. Their lead in game two stuck and although the squad  the RoughRiders are faced with a rare opportunity to win a series in west Texas. Click here to read the two-game recap.

Star of the Game(s): 3B/DH Joey Gallo – 4/7, R, HR, 5RBI, 2SO

Joey gave Midland fits on Tuesday as he through, over and away from its defensive shift. His two-run home run in game one kicked off a five-run inning for the RoughRiders and he racked up three singles and three RBI in the second half of the double header. The Futures Game MVP smacked his first dinger since July 7 (a drought of nine games because of the time he missed in Minneapolis).

His home run totals now read 32 on the season and 11 with Frisco. Joey still trails Kris Bryant by one in the race for the overall lead in Minor League Baseball and he moves into a tie with Trever Adams for most on the team. The slugger still leads the Carolina League in homers by six. Preston Tucker sits atop the Texas League in home runs with 17, but he now plays in the Triple-A ranks. In short, it is entirely conceivable for Joey to win home run titles in two leagues this season.

In case you missed it:

-Honorable mention needs to go to J.T. Wise. The former Wichita Wingnut saw action at catcher in the second game and was not retired at the dish. Wise hit 4-for-4 with a double and three runs scored and raised his batting average by 88 points.

-Another shout-out is awarded to RHP Brodie Downs. The new 35-year-old tossed a scoreless fourth inning in game two and earned his first win with a major league affiliate since August 4, 2009.

-The RoughRiders have racked up 20 runs and 36 hits in the first three games of this series.

After earning Minor League Pitcher of the Month recognition from the Rangers, Alec faced adversity in the month of July, losing his first three decisions. The righty responded against the Midland RockHounds on July 21 and allowed just one run and five hits over 7 1/3 innings.

Finally, A Big Inning

Miss 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.

Facing the hottest team in the Texas League, the RoughRiders were able to generate the big inning offensively, using a four-run frame to oust the Midland RockHounds. The Hounds won 14 of their first 17 games in July and had taken five straight off Frisco at Security Bank Ballpark. It was the first time since July 13, in an 11-2 demolition of San Antonio, the ‘Riders scored more than two runs in a single frame. Click here to read the full game recap.

Star of the Game: 1B Trever Adams – 3/5, R, HR, 3RBI, SO

Trever asserted himself at the plate on Monday as he tallied his second home run and his second multi-hit game in the past six games. It was his first three-hit night since June 19. The Nebraskan continues to display consistency at the plate and has not posted a hitless streak of more than two games since April 28-May 3. In the face of the dog days of summer, Trever still has not had back-to-back games with out a base knock in the second half of the season, which began June 17. The righty leads the team in the following categories as of July 21:

  • Games played: 87
  • At-bats: 332
  • Runs: 47
  • Hits: 91
  • Doubles: 21 (tied for third in the Texas League)
  • Home runs: 11
  • RBI: 44
  • Total bases: 147

In case you missed it:

-Patrick Cantwell also had a three-hit outing and finished with a run, a double and two RBI. It was the fourth three-hit night of the season for the ‘Riders backstop. Patrick also raised his batting average to a season-high .259 as his offensive production continues to improve.

-Alec Asher regained the form that made him the Rangers Minor League Pitcher of the Month in June. After he dropped his first three decisions in July, the right-hander pitched into the eighth inning on Monday and allowed just one run on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts. He threw just 88 pitches and 58 for strikes.

-The RoughRiders outhit Midland 16-6 and came one knock shy of tying their season high of 17 hits in a game.

-In a strange sequence, the RockHounds lost both their hitting coach Webster Garrison and their field manager Aaron Nieckula within a span of a few minutes in the fifth inning. Garrison had been barking from the dugout at home plate umpire Clay Park all game and finally received his exit papers. Interestingly enough, it came in the top of the frame with the ‘Riders at the plate. Nieckula grew hot under the collar with his hitting coach ejected and joined him in the locker room shortly thereafter.

-Gallo watch: 2-for-3, R, 2B, SAC, BB, SO

That’s no typo. Joey dropped the first sacrifice bunt of his professional career to advance Trever Adams up to second base in the second inning. The double in the fourth was his eighth with the RoughRiders and 17th of the season.

-Midland’s Jeremy Barfield started the game in right field and took the mound to pitch in the ninth inning. The hulking right-hander spent a portion of last season in extended spring training as part of his conversion process and began the 2014 campaign with Advanced-A Stockton. He made his Double-A pitching debut and picked up two strikeouts in a perfect ninth inning. At the plate, Barfield went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

-We take another look at the RoughRiders home run board (active players only):

  1. Trever Adams (11)
  2. Joey Gallo (10)
  3. Drew Robinson (9)
  4. Teodoro Martinez (3)
  5. Chris Grayson (2)
  6. Jake Skole (2)
  7. Odubel Herrera (1)
  8. Patrick Cantwell (1)



Ryan Rodebaugh is in fine fettle once again after a week on the disabled list with a stomach virus. Rodey missed the team’s last trip to San Antonio and tells us he couldn’t even leave his apartment for a stretch of a few days. No more information necessary. In his return to the bump on July 19, the right-hander sat down three men on strikes for a perfect sixth inning that lasted just 12 pitches as part of a 2-1 win over Corpus Christi.

True Grit, Part II

Earlier this season, we titled a blog post “True Grit” because it embodied the RoughRiders’ efforts in a 3-2 win over Springfield. Click here to read the full game recap.

Star of the Game: 2B Odubel Herrera – 3/4, R

Odubel scored his 24th run for the RoughRiders this season. The southpaw has hits in 21 of his last 24 games and in 16 of his last 33, Odubel has knocked multiple base hits.

In case you missed it:

-The Hooks committed four errors in the game, including three in a two-inning period. As a result, the ‘Riders scored two unearned runs to tie the game at 2-2 and then take the lead for good in the seventh inning.

-As bad as the infield played for Corpus Christi, its outfield was excellent and registered two outfield assists in the first inning. Both resulted in outs at the plate to keep the RoughRiders off the board early.

-Corpus Christi again outhit Frisco 8-6.

-A throwing error on catcher J.T. Wise in the eighth inning broke a streak of four games without an error for Frisco’s defense. It was the team’s longest stretch of the season.

-Speedster Delino DeShields, Jr., who ranks second in the Texas League with 41 stolen bases, cracked his first triple of the season in the fifth.

-Gallo watch: 0-for-4, 3SO

Joey is now three for his last 29 at the dish with 16 strikeouts. His last home run with the ‘Riders came on July 7 and he has not hit a long ball at Dr Pepper Ballpark since June 28.

Wise Move

Miss 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.

In a swift turn of events, a no-hit bid by Corpus Christi’s Chris Devenski ended abruptly in the seventh inning. Not only did Devenski forfeit the no-no, he could not finish the frame and left on the hook for the loss. Click here to read the full game recap.

Star of the Game: DH J.T. Wise – 1/2, 2B, 2RBI, BB, SO

It looks like the decision to sign Wise out of the American Association was just that – a wise one, indeed. The former Wichita Wingnut has been a doubles machine since his arrival in Frisco on July 11 (four in six games). In what became the game’s seminal moment, Wise’s line drive two-bagger down the left field line brought home the only two runs of the game for Frisco. The native of Apopka, Florida also ruined a perfect game attempt by Devenski when he drew a walk in the fifth. Devenski had seated the first 14 batters he faced.

In case you missed it:

-Erik Hamren registered his first save as a RoughRider and his first save in the Texas League since April 25, 2012 when the righty pitched for the San Antonio Missions in 6-5 win against…the RoughRiders.

-Corpus Christi outhit Frisco 5-2.

-The ‘Riders totaled all their hits and runs in the seventh inning.

-Frisco has not committed an error in four consecutive game, the team’s longest such streak of the season.

-The RoughRiders snapped a four-game losing streak, their longest of the season. The ‘Riders were the last team in the Texas League to avoid a four-game skid. Only Tulsa and Frisco have steered clear of the five-game losing streak in the Texas League this season.

-Gallo watch: 0-for-3, SO

The line may not show it, but it feels like Joey is on the verge of busting his current slump. Devenski made a great catch on a screamer back to the mound in the second inning.

Nine Runs in the Ninth

Miss 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.

No need to split hairs here. A ninth inning of epic proportion is all there is to blame for the RoughRiders’ stunning loss to the Hooks on Friday. Click here to read the full game recap.

Here is a list of event in the ninth inning, batter-by-batter:

  1. Ruben Sosa: Single
  2. Delino DeShields, Jr.: Walk
  3. Jonathan Meyer: Two-RBI Single
  4. Andrew Aplin: Walk
  5. Telvin Nash: Hit-by-Pitch
  6. Carlos Perdomo: RBI Walk
  7. Tyler Heineman: RBI Sacrifice Fly (one out)
  8. M.P. Cokinos: Single
  9. Tony Kemp: RBI Hit-by-Pitch
  10. Ruben Sosa: RBI Double – Perdomo and Cokinos score
  11. Delino DeShields, Jr.: RBI Sacrifice Fly (two outs)
  12. Jonathan Meyer: RBI Single
  13. Andrew Aplin: Fielder’s Choice (three outs)

Star of the Game: LHP Martire Garcia – 3.0IP, 0H, 0R, 2BB, 2SO

Welcome back, Martire! In his first game back at Dr Pepper Ballpark since April 8, the Dominican looked in control of his fastball/slider mix. A double play in the eighth inning helped Martire face one over the minimum through his three innings. He picked up right where starter Chi Chi Gonzalez left off. Gonzalez pitched a strong five innings and gave up only three hits and two walks with four strikeouts.

In case you missed it:

-The nine runs in the ninth inning are the most allowed in a single inning by the RoughRiders this season.

-Prior to the ninth inning, Frisco’s bullpen had allowed ten earned runs over its last 17 games.

-Game time temperature was south of 70 for the second night in a row (69 degrees at first pitch).

-The RoughRiders drew a season-high nine walks in the game.

-Gallo watch: 2-for-4, 2RBI, BB, 2SO

Joey emerged from a 1-for-18 streak at the plate with his first multi-hit game since July 7. Both were hard-hit ground balls (one up the box, the other bounced out of the glove of the first baseman Telvin Nash) as the lefty worked to put the ball in play and not necessarily drive it out of the park.

Soggy Weather, Soggy Game

Miss 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 rainy night–the coldest July 17 on record in DFW history with first pitch temperature a balmy 66 degrees–the ‘Riders put forth a soggy night offensively and fell 3-2 to Corpus Christi . Click here to read the full game recap.

This is the dog days, after all, and the status of the game remained in limbo for much of the day as a gigantic cloud hung over the Metroplex, at times dumping torrential amounts of rain. Official word on the status of the game did not reach consensus until after 5:00 p.m., so pregame ritual was a wash and the weather watered down the crowd in the ballpark considerably as well.

Not to mention the team arrived in town at around 6:00 a.m. on Thursday from their road trip to San Antonio. Playing on short rest in murky conditions against the Corpus Christi Hooks for the fifth time in nine days, a sluggish outing suddenly seems understandable, if not predictable.

Star of the Game: RF Chris Grayson – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, SB

Chris extended his hitting streak to six games on a second inning bunt single. His every-game hustle was apparent on the play as he leapfrogged over the first base bag to allude a tag and then dove back in safely for a base hit. In seven games with the ‘Riders since his return to Double-A on July 5, the outfielder has hits in six and bats .283 through 30 Texas League games this season. Chris’s solo home run in the ninth was his first of the season at Dr Pepper Ballpark, second with the RoughRiders and third of the season if you count his 31 games with Advanced-A Myrtle Beach.

In case you missed it:

-Corpus Christi’s starting pitcher Luis Cruz hit more batters (3) than he allowed hits (2).

-The game marked the 750th defeat in team history.

-The first pitch temperature was the coldest for the RoughRiders since May 8 in Midland when the thermometer read 51 degrees to begin the game.

-Gallo watch: 0-for-3, BB, 3SO

Joey has one hit in his last 18 at-bats in the midst of his first prolonged slump of the season. He hinted ever-so-subtly it was a mental challenge to head back to the Texas League after tasting the experience of playing in a major league stadium for the Futures Game.



Newcomer J.T. Wise shares the similarities and differences between affiliated ball and the independent ranks. J.T.’s season with the Wichita Wingnuts in the American Association gave the catcher a chance to clear his head and press the reset button, he says:

Two Ways to Look at Series Split

Miss 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.

San Antonio struck early, held Frisco in check when it mattered and rallied from two down in the series to salvage a split with the RoughRiders. Click here to read the full game recap.

In one sense, the ‘Riders ought to feel good about themselves after the quick four-game swing down the Alamo City. Wolff Municipal Stadium had been a house of horrors of sorts for the squad this season (they had lost 6-of-8 going into the series) and to escape with a split deserves commendation.

On the other hand, Frisco missed out on an opportunity to win a series at the Wolff after it won the first two installments. The RoughRiders kicked off the set with an 11-2 blowout victory and followed that up with a 3-2 meat-grinder win in 13 innings the following night. The psychological impact of two consecutive defeats in such fashion put Frisco in prime position to steal another game and the series in the process. But a desperate San Antonio team on a seven-game losing streak rallied to win the latter half.

Star of the Game: 1B Trever Adams – 2/4, R, HR, RBI, SO

It’s been a while since Adams took home “SOTG” honors. The Nebraskan is grinding his way through a midseason slump and took a step in the right direction on Wednesday with his tenth home run of the season. After reaching a season-high .301 batting average on June 9, Adams’ mark at the plate hit a nadir of .266 as of July 13. With two multi-hit games in his last three outings and hits in 4-of-5, the right-handed hitter is up to .272/.324/.438 slash line with 20 doubles, a triple, 40 RBI and 46 runs scored.

In case you missed it:

-The bottom three hitters in the lineup for Frisco combined to bat 0-for-12 on Wednesday night with four strikeouts.

-In the eighth inning, San Antonio’s Austin Hedges hit into his Texas League-leading 16th double play of the season.

-Major league rehabber Jim Adduci started in center field and played until the eighth inning when he was replaced by Chris Grayson. At the dish, Adduci went 1-for-4 with a strikeout. Fellow rehabber Geovany Soto was given the night off.

-Gallo watch: 1-for-4, 2SO

Joey’s eighth inning single snapped an 0-for-14 skid. He know has 96 careers singles and 93 career home runs as a member of the Rangers organization.



Chris Grayson’s season has been anything but stable. Through three stints with Frisco and two with Advanced-A Myrtle Beach, the outfielder is quietly putting together his best professional season. He also shares some of the unique circumstances behind his college career with Alex in a candid interview:

Nickled & Dimed

Miss 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.

An error and two hit batsman dinged the RoughRiders and proved costly in their bid to win three straight against San Antonio and take the series. Click here to read the full game recap.

The Missions took the lead permanently in the fourth inning on a fielding error by Guilder Rodriguez. On a ground ball hit by Austin Hedges to short, G-Rod unleashed a short throw to first. J.T. Wise, playing the position for the first time as a RoughRider, could not scoop the ball out of the dirt. While the toss over was certainly not the strongest from Rodriguez, it’s still a play Wise needs to make.

Later, when Cody Overbeck grounded back to the pitcher, the out should have been the inning’s last, but the play instead drove in a run for the first of three unearned tallies in the frame by the Missions.

After Claudio exited, Frisco’s two relievers struggled with wildness that hurt the team’s ninth-inning comeback bid. Francisco Mendoza hit the first batter he faced in the sixth inning and walked the next two to load the bases with nobody out. To Mendoza’s credit, he pulled through via a double play and a strikeout to end the inning with only one run allowed, the best possible scenario given the circumstances. However, on the 6-3 twin killing, Yeison Asencio, the player struck by Mendoza’s pitch, scored.

A hit batsmen plagued Erik Hamren as well, the RoughRiders’ arm in the eighth. Rymer Liriano was forced to leave the game after absorbing a shot to the elbow. The pinch runner for Liriano, Hunter Renfroe, scored all the same on a triple by Brian Bixler. In a game the ‘Riders lost by one run, the three unearned runs and the two additional runs that initially reached by way of a hit-by-pitch sank Frisco into too deep a hole.

Star of the Game: 2B Odubel Herrera – 3/4, R

Anyone holding his or her figurative breath in anticipation of a fall-off in Odubel’s offensive production has been doing so for quite a while now. The second baseman singled all over the place on Tuesday – once to right, once to left and once on the infield. His .342 batting average (68-for-199 through 53 games) is tops on the team.

In case you missed it:

-The RoughRiders are now 0-33 when they trail after eight innings. They came close to breaking that streak on Tuesday afternoon, but couldn’t quite finish the job.

-Frisco also falls to 9-9 in day games this season. The team plays one more game under the sun on August 24 in Midland.

-As is his custom, San Antonio field manager Rich Dauer shuffled his lineup defensively during the game. In the seventh inning, Cory Spangenberg moved from center field to his more regular spot at second base. Casey McElroy then shifted from second to third and kicked Adam Buschini across the diamond from third to first. Cody Overbeck, who started the game at first, was replaced in the batting order by new center fielder Rymer Liriano, whose presence in the game was short-lived. After Liriano left the game with an injury in the eighth, Hunter Renfroe became the third center fielder of the ballgame for San Antonio.

-Frisco outhit the Missions 10-8 in the loss.

-Major league rehabber Geovany Soto had another good game and went 2-for-4 with a double as the DH. After his leadoff double in the ninth, Drew Robinson replaced Soto as a pinch runner and later scored on Chris Grayson’s two-run double. Fellow rehabber Jim Adduci was not in the lineup on Tuesday.

-Gallo watch: 0-for-4, 2SO

Playing in his first game with the ‘Riders since July 10, Gallo hit the ball out of the infield once on a fly out to left in the sixth.



Catcher Geovany Soto has been enjoying his time with the RoughRiders in the Texas League circuit and it shows in the numbers: 7-for-19 (.368) with four runs, two doubles and an RBI through six games. The 2008 National League Rookie of the Year also shares memories of his trip to the MLB All-Star Game in 2008:

Monday Night Marathon

In terms of innings played (13), Monday’s affair with San Antonio was the longest of the season for the RoughRiders. And, of course, it comes on the eve of an 11:05 a.m. special on Tuesday. Click here to read the full game recap.

Star of the Game: RF Chris Grayson – 1/5, RBI, 3SO, SF

The numbers may not jump off the stat sheet, but it’s hard to top the timeliness of Chris’s RBI last night. With the bases loaded and one away, the outfielder lofted a fly ball to deep right field that gave Trever Adams plenty of time to score from third and break a 2-2 tie in the top of the 13th inning. In his third stint with the ‘Riders in 2014 alone, Grayson totes a .276 average with 17 RBI in 27 games in the Texas League.

In case you missed it:

-While the 13-innings is a season-high for Frisco, the game was the second-longest of the season in terms of time elapsed. Monday’s game lasted four hours and 17 minutes but on May 15, the ‘Riders battled the Midland RockHounds for four hours and 23 minutes. In one of the crazier games of the season, the Hounds knocked off the horsemen 11-10 in 11 innings.

-Tomás Telis set a season-high with a four-hit night. In the tenth inning, Telis stole second base and advanced to third on an errant throw from San Antonio catcher Robert Kral.

-Patrick Cantwell was hit by a pitch for the 11th time this season, the most of any batter in the Texas League.

-RHP Randy Henry continues to improve with the ‘Riders and earned his first Double-A win of 2014. The reliever pitched three innings in overtime, each in a sudden-death situation, and allowed three hits and no walks with two strikeouts.

-Frisco’s two runs against San Antonio starter Leonel Campos were the Venezuelan’s first two earned runs allowed against the ‘Riders in 12 career appearances.

-The Missions have played in more extra-inning games (18) than any other team in the minors. Even more appalling in San Antonio’s record in said contests: 4-14.

-By comparison, Frisco moved to 2-3 in extras this season.

-Major league rehabbers Jim Adduci and Geovany Soto each went 0-for-4 in the ballgame. Adduci struck out twice and Soto suffered the same fate three times.

-Gallo watch: DNP

Joey was back in the dugout with the team, but stayed there after a whirlwind weekend to Minneapolis for the Futures Game.
