Daily Recaps: July 10, 2019
Brownell Blanks Goldeyes
John Brownell (4-3) allowed five hits in his first complete game shutout of the year, as the Lincoln Saltdogs defeated the Winnipeg Goldeyes, 6-0. A five run fourth inning was more than enough support for Brownell. Ivan Marin knocked in two in the frame. The victory moved the Saltdogs within 2.5 games of second place Sioux Falls.
Dogs Sweep RailCats
The Chicago Dogs swept the Gary Southshore RailCats on Wednesday, winning Game 1 in walk-off fashion before dominating Game 2. Game 1 started as a wild affair, as the RailCats came out of the second leading 7-5. However, that remained the score through the six. In the bottom of the seventh, the Dogs tied the score before David Olmedo-Barrera drove home the winning run with an RBI single. It was his fourth hit in the contest.
In Game 2, Jake Dahlberg (4-2) went the distance, allowing two runs to earn the victory. Trey Vavra had three RBI and Olmedo-Barrera added two more hits, making him 6-9 in the double-header. Six players had two hits in the contest.
Ely Finishes Canaries Comeback Victory, 9-8
Andrew Ely’s two run double in the bottom of the eighth put the Sioux Falls Canaries on top, completing their 9-8 victory over the Texas AirHogs. Ely finished with three hits. The victory moved the Canaries into second place in the South.
Explorers-RedHawks Split Double-Header
The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks split their double-header with the Sioux City Explorers on Wednesday. Fargo would take Game 1, 11-5, thanks to a Chris Jacobs grand slam. With the score tied at four in the sixth, the RedHawks put up seven runs to take control of this contest. Jacobs and T.J. Bennett both homered in the game. Brennen Metzger was a perfect 5-5 with two RBI.
In Game 2, the Sioux City Explorers jumped out to a 5-0 lead, then held off a feverish rally to win, 5-3. Kyle Wren had three hits and scored a run. Carlos Sierra (2-0) earned the victory, allowing three unearned runs in 5.2 innings. Matt Pobereyko earned his 13th save.
Zimmerman Dominates T-Bones, 7-1
A seven run third was too much for the Kansas City T-Bones to overcome, but so was Ryan Zimmerman. The Saints starter allowed one run in six innings to help lead the St. Paul Saints to a 7-1 victory. John Silviano homered for the second straight day and Chesney Young drove in two runs in the decisive frame.
Boscan Bomb Downs Railroaders
Manuel Boscan’s three run homer in the first inning helped the Milwaukee Milkmen defeat the Cleburne Railroaders, 4-3. Jordan Krauss earned the victory, allowing two runs in seven innings. Cesar Valera and Garrett Copeland each delivered three hits for Milwaukee.
