Daily Recaps: May 28, 2019
Garcia, Bullpen Blank AirHogs
The Sioux City Explorers got seven outstanding innings from Jason Garcia in their 5-0 victory over the Texas AirHogs. Garcia allowed just two hits, while striking out 10, and two relievers each chipped in a perfect inning to finish off the shutout. Sioux City struck out 15 total batters. The loss was the third in a row for Texas.
Railroaders Outslug RedHawks, 12-9
Back-to-back four run innings gave the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks an 8-3 lead coming out of the third. However, the Cleburne Railroaders would chip away at that lead, scoring three runs in the second, fifth, and seventh innings. That would help to tie the score at nine, sending the contest to extra innings where Hunter Clanin would win it with his first home run of the season, a three run blast in the 12th to give Cleburne the victory. The Railroaders bullpen tossed 6.1 innings of scoreless relief.
Lambson Leads Goldeyes to 4-2 Victory
Mitch Lambson allowed two earned runs in 6.1 innings to help lead the Winnipeg Goldeyes to a 4-2 victory over the Gary Southshore RailCats. The Goldeyes bullpen tossed 2.2 hitless innings and Josh Romanski had 2 hits and an RBI for Winnipeg.
Regis Helps Power Saltdogs to Victory
The Lincoln Saltdogs snapped the St. Paul Saints four game winning streak, downing St. Paul 6-3.
