Memphis game was postponed due to rain. They like Springfield will host a double-header on Sunday.

Springfield 3, Arkansas 9

*Springfield's offense only produced 3 runs but had plenty of opportunities to score but never could capitalize with RISP as they went 2-for-11 and stranded 12 runners aboard. They were in the game until the 8th inning when there bullpen imploded.

*Mike O'Neil was 1-4 with a walk.

*Thomas Pham continues to hit by going 2-4 with a walk. Pham is now batting .347 that's the 2nd highest AVG in the Texas League among qualified.

*Chris Swauger was 2-3 with an RBI double and 2 walks.

*Starlin Rodriguez walked. Like to see him show some patient as he's the anti Mike O'Neil statistically.

*Audry Perez was 1-3 with an RBI double as well.

*Richard Castillo pitched 6 quality innings gave up 8 hits 3 runs 3 earned walked 1 struck out 2.
