Corpus Christi over Arkansas 9-5
Jake Buchanan (W, 2-3) was two outs away from a complete game, but with two runs in, the bases loaded and only one out in the top of the ninth, he was pulled for Josh Zeid. Zeid proceeded to allow two more runners to score on wild pitches before getting the last two outs on strikeouts. The good news is that the offense, which has been largely stifled as of late, came out with a vengeance, banging out 14 hits with two home runs (Jonathan Villar and Brandon Barnes) and two doubles (Austin Wates and Jon Singleton). Brandon Barnes was three-for-four with a three-run home run.

Oklahoma City - Rain out

Lancaster - Off Day

Lexington over West Virginia 4-0

What went right: An excellent start by Ordosgoitti and a bullpen in lockdown mode.

In his fourth start since being called up, Luis Ordosgoitti lowered his ERA from 8.49 to 5.21 as the 19-year old attempts to show that he belongs at this level. Murilo Gouvea and Dayan Diaz pitched the final 1.2 innings to complete the shutout. Matt Duffy and Mike Kvasnicka both went two-for-four. Duffy had two RBIs and a double. Jordan Scott hit a triple and had an outfield assist.

Luis Ordosgoitti (W, 1-1) - 7.1IP 4H 0R 3BB 4SO
Murilo Gouvea - 0.2IP 0H 0R 1BB
Dayan Diaz - 1IP 0H 0R 2BB 2SO

Delino DeShields - 1x5 RBI SO
Jordan Scott - 1x4 3B SO R
Matt Duffy - 2x4 2B 2RBI R
Mike Kvasnicka - 2x4 SO R

What went wrong: No stolen bases from Delino DeShields and no RBIs from Zach Johnson. Slackers! (For the humor impaired, that's a joke.)

Luis Ordosgoitti gets his first win at Lexington and his first Pitcher of the Day award from WTHB. The excitement is almost palpable!

Brandon Barnes continues to prove that his hot start at Corpus isn't a fluke. After 41 games, he is hitting .320/.382/.549.

  1. The errors by Martinez and Singleton sealed Jake's fate. Both were double play material.
