The ‘Riders would gladly play more cames at ONEOK Field if the schedule allowed. On Sunday, Frisco completed a three-game sweep of the Drillers and will finish the regular season 5-0 in the Oil City. The RoughRiders mastered Tulsa from the start and won 9-of-11 (with one game cancelled) in 2014. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: RHP Alec Asher – 6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K

Alec book-ended the six-game road trip with a pair of victories on the hill. After falling to 8-11, the Big Cat has raised his season record to 10-11 and has allowed just one unearned run in his last 12 innings. Alec did not walk a batter over the course of his six innings on Sunday and never allowed multiple baserunners in a single inning.

In case you missed it:

-The RoughRiders finish their slate of games against the North Division with a 29-18 record.

-Odubel Herrera batted leadoff and turned in a three-hit night (all singles) with two runs and two stolen bases. Odubel now has 11 swiped bags as a RoughRider this season.

-Jorge Alfaro picked up three hits as well including a double and a run scored in the ninth inning.

-Teodoro Martinez extended his hitting streak to a season-high 11 games with an RBI double in the sixth.

-Trever Adams scored two runs and now has 63 on the season, third-most in the Texas League.

-Nick Williams has a double and triple through his first two games in the Texas League.

-Gallo watch: 1-for-4, R, HR, 2 RBI, BB, SB, 2 SO

Joey got a hold of a ninth-inning offering from lefty Kraig Sitton and bopped his second home run of the series. The blast was Joey’s 40th of the season and 19th as a RoughRider. On a historical note, Joey becomes the first minor league player since Ron Kittle in 1981-1982 to hit 40 homers in consecutive seasons. He is once again tied with Kris Bryant for the most home runs in the minors and trails Corpus Christi’s Telvin Nash by one for the Texas League lead.

Déjà Vu


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.

It was déjà vu all over again for the ‘Riders and no one complained as Frisco came out on the right side of an 8-2 final score for the second night in a row. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez – 7.0 IP, 6 H, R, 2 BB, 8 K

Pitching in front of friends and family in Tulsa, Chi Chi turned in his sixth straight winning decision to move his Double-A record to 7-3 (12-5 on the season) with a 2.02 ERA (2.32 overall). The ‘Riders took the reins off the right-hander for the first time and he turned in his longest outing with Frisco both in terms of innings and pitch count (106 pitches and 74 strikes). Chi Chi played collegiately at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, hence the high concentration of supporters. The native of Delray Beach, Florida was especially keen with runners on the bases and stranded runners in scoring position in four of his seven innings. He has become the Luke Jackson of the second half for the RoughRiders.

In case you missed it:

-Nomar Mazara deserves an honorable mention for his performance at the plate on Saturday. He finished the night 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, a home run and four RBI.

As if the pure numbers aren’t enough to validate his case, the timeliness of his extra-base knocks enhanced the impact of his line. His second Double-A homer in the second got the ‘Riders on the board and into the lead, not to mention it came off Eddie Butler, a pitcher with big league experience this season. In the ninth, with the RoughRiders clinging to a 3-2 lead, Nomar provided his squad with a much-needed cushion on a ringing two-run double to right. The Dominican made the Drillers pay for a costly error earlier in the frame and tipped off a five-run frame for the ‘Riders who made the final score look rather lopsided.

-All five of the RoughRiders’ runs in the ninth were unearned because of an error on shortstop Taylor Featherston. If Featherston makes the play on a Nick Williams grounder, the inning is over with the score still 3-2.

-Speaking of Nick Williams, the newest RoughRider batted 1-for-4 in his Double-A debut with two runs and a double. He reached base three times including a wild-pitch strikeout and the aforementioned error on Featherston in the ninth.

-Teodoro Martinez extended his hitting streak to a season-high ten games with an RBI single in the ninth.

-Trevor Story has been almost the sole source of offense for the Drillers in this series. The Irving High School alumnus pummeled his third home run against the RoughRiders in five games on Saturday.

-Gallo watch: 1-for-3, 2 R, HR, RBI, BB, SO

Butler struck Joey out in the first, but the slugger extracted revenge in the fourth on the first pitch of the inning. Butler dropped one right into Joey’s sweet spot (low and inside) and he knocked out to right-center for his 18th home run with the RoughRiders. It’s home run number 39 for Joey this season and he trails Corpus Christi’s Telvin Nash by two in the Texas League home run race.

Trampled By Teo & Thompson

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 let loose some frustration on Tulsa after a difficult series in Springfield, particularly on the offensive side. Four hits from Teodoro Martinez and five strong innings from Jake Thompson helped the ‘Riders trample Tulsa 8-2. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: LF Teodoro Martinez – 4/5, R, 3 RBI, SO

Teo has come to life in August and has posted a .474 batting average in the month. The dog days were tough on Teo, but his season batting average has risen to .289 and he is on a ten-game hitting streak, his longest of the season.

In case you missed it:

-In addition to Teo, four other ‘Riders had multiple hits on Friday night: Guilder Rodriguez (2-for-5, 2B, RBI), Trever Adams (2-for-5, 2 R, 2 2B, RBI, ROE), Nomar Mazara (2-for-5, 2B, RBI) and Hanser Alberto (2-for-4, RBI).

-Every ‘Rider reached base safely at least once in the game.

-The RoughRiders smacked five doubles on the night and three in the third inning.

-After eight games without a double, Trever Adams cracked two against the Drillers to move his season total to 34. He trails Texas League leader Alex Yarbrough by three.

-Patrick Cantwell was hit by a pitch for the 19th time this season, the most in the Texas League.

-Gallo watch: 1-for-4, 2 R, 2B, BB

Fly Away

The ‘Riders were more than joyful to fly out of town after the 2014 regular season finale against the Springfield Cardinals. No matter that the ‘Riders lost the game 6-2, the series 2-1 or the season series 7-5. Hammons Field became a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” for the RoughRiders, who were again flummoxed by Cardinals’ pitching and committed multiple errors in the field. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: RF Nomar Mazara – 2/4, 2B

The pickings were slim, but Nomar was the only ‘Rider with multiple hits on Thursday. Nomar now has three doubles at the Double-A level in nine games.

In case you missed it:

-Teodoro Martinez extended his hitting streak to nine straight–a season high for Teo–with an RBI single in the ninth inning.

-The ‘Riders narrowly avoided a shutout for the fifth time this season when J.T. Wise, Odubel Herrera and Martinez sparked a two-out rally in the top of the ninth.

-Three Frisco errors led to three unearned runs for the Cardinals.

-Entering the ninth, the RoughRiders had just three hits, but doubled their total with three base knocks in the ninth inning alone.

Failure to Launch

Like a hitter in a hot streak at the plate, this pitching staff is grooving right now. A 2-1 loss in 11 innings hardly falls on the shoulders of the pitchers. Instead, the offense stayed under wraps provided virtually no run support for Jerad Eickhoff & co. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: RHP Jerad Eickhoff – 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K

Jerad did not earn a win on Wednesday, but least he was spared a losing decision. The Texas League leader in strikeouts upped his total to 128 and turned in a seven-inning outing for the fifth time this season.

In case you missed it:

-Curt Smith’s walk-off home run was the first run allowed by Martire Garcia in over 18 innings as a RoughRider this season.

-Springfield reliever Sam Tuivailala gave his best Keone Kela impersonation and topped out at 101 mph on the Hammons Field Radar gun. He loaded the bases with no outs in the eighth and blew a save when a wild pitch allowed the ‘Riders to tie the game. The ‘Riders could have taken the lead for good, but Tuivailala denied them the chance when he struck out the side in order. He finished with six strikeouts in two inning.

-After Tuivailala, Joey Donofrio took the hill and gave the ‘Riders fits for the final three innings. Donofrio sat down all nine batters he faced and added four strikeouts to his line. The RoughRiders struck out 15 times in the ballgame.

-Gallo watch: 0-for-5, 5 SO

Telvin Nash hit a home run on Wednesday for Corpus Christi and now leads Joey by two in the Texas League home run chase. Joey last hit a homer on August 8.

Rainy Skies Affect Another Game on the Homestand

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.

For the second time on the homestand, weather left its fingerprint on a game at the Doc. On Friday, a late afternoon rain shower pushed first pitch to 7:35 (a half hour after the scheduled start time). When play commenced, the Drillers cruised on three homers to an 8-3 win and send the ‘Riders to a three-game skid. Click here to read the game recap.

Star of the Game: LF Trever Adams – 1/3, R, RBI, BB

It wasn’t a particularly strong night offensively as the RoughRiders mustered only a handful of hits, but Trever had a hand in two of the ‘Riders three runs in the game. After he went hitless on Thursday for the first time in 13 games, Trever bounced back on Friday and has not gone consecutive outings without a base knock in the second half of the season, which started June 17.

In case you missed it:

-The ‘Riders committed multiple errors for the third night in a row and have not had a night without a miscue on the homestand.

-Frisco falls to 8-8 against the North Division in the second half of the season.

-Gallo watch: 1-for-4, R, HR, 2 RBI

In a highly anticipated matchup, Joey battled Tulsa starter Jon Gray for two at-bats on Friday. Both were recently rated the number one prospect in their respective organizations by MLB.com. In round one, hitter saw four strikes from pitcher and ultimately grounded out to first base. The rematch, however, told a different story as Joey blasted a first pitch delivery from Gray to center field for a two-run home run.

Joey now has 38 jacks this season and breaks a tie with Kris Bryant for the most in professional baseball. It was also career home run number 100 for the lefty and his 17th with Frisco, second-most in the Texas League.

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.

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.
