Oscar Taveras - USA TODAY Sports

Marco Gonzales and Oscar Taveras provide the highlights as the system goes 2-2.

Oklahoma City 12 - Memphis 10

  • Oscar Taveras was clearly the hitting star for Memphis. He has 8 extra base hits (2 HR, 6 2B) in his last 10 games. On a related note the parent club will need a DH for 7 straight games at the beginning of June.
  • Tim Cooney and the Memphis bullpen were rocked. The Redbirds were down 11 runs before they got on the board. They rallied for 8 runs in the 8th to get back in the game, but didn't have quite enough to come all the way back.

Springfield 1 - Midland 0

  • Mike O'Neill (LF): 0-4
  • Jacob Wilson (2B): 1-4
  • Cody Stanley (C): 2-4, 2B
  • Jonathan Rodriguez (1B): 0-4, 4 K
  • Pat Wisdom (3B): 0-3, RBI, K
  • Marco Gonzales (SP): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
  • Ryan Sherriff (RP): 2 IP, 3 K
  • The Springfield offense didn't show up, but luckily the pitching staff bailed them out. The S-Cards hitters were only able to come up with 2 extra base hits, and they didn't draw a single walk.
  • Marco Gonzales had another strong start for Springfield. The 2013 1st rounder threw 65 of his 97 pitches for strikes. Ryan Sherriff backed him up with a 2 inning save.

  • Mike O'Neill (CF): 1-4, 2 K

  • Silfredo Garcia (SP): 6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
  • Samuel Tuivailala (RP): 2 IP, 1 K
  • Christopher Thomas (RP): 1 IP
  • Silfredo Garcia was making his 2nd start at Palm Beach and he did well to bounce back from his rough debut.
