Here’s a look back at Thursday’s farm:
Dakota Hudson (SP): 6 2⁄3 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 5 Ks, 1 BB

Stephen Piscotty (RF): 1-5, HR, RBI, R, 2 Ks
Tyler O’Neill (DH): 1-5, 2B
Harrison Bader (CF): 0-4, BB, R, 3 Ks
Three consecutive base hits in the bottom of the 13th inning resulted in a 3-2, walk-off win for the Redbirds.
Facing former Cardinals and current Storm Chasers reliever Seth Maness, Memphis left fielder Breyvic Valera stepped in the box with runners on the corners and nobody out. Valera then shot a ball to the right side, easily scoring Wilfredo Tovar - the runner from third - for the game-winning tally.
Dakota Hudson turned in a quality start, allowing two runs over 6 2⁄3 frames. Arturo Reyes followed with two scoreless innings, and Ryan Sherriff recorded an out before Miguel Socolovich pitched the 10th, 11th, and 12th innings. Josh Zeid posted a zero in the top of the 13th and was credited with his eighth win of the year; Zeid is now 8-2.
Zac Gallen (SP): 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 Ks, 2 BB
Andrew Morales (RP): 2⁄3 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 K, 0 BB

Jose Adolis Garcia (RF): 2-3, HR, 3 RBIs, 2 R
Randy Arozarena (LF): 1-3, 2B, BB. 2 R
With a five spot in the eighth, the Missions came back to stun the Cardinals on Thursday night, 8-5, in San Antonio.
The Missions couldn’t get much going against Springfield starter Zac Gallen, who allowed two runs over his five-inning outing. After Gallen exited, the Missions went to work on the Cardinals’ bullpen, putting up one on Jacob Evans, three on Andrew Morales, and two on Landon Beck.
Right fielder Jose Adolis Garcia had a big night in the batter’s box for the Cardinals, going 2-for-2 with a homer - his seventh - and three runs batted in. Springfield left fielder Randy Arozarena reached base twice - a double and a walk - and came around to score each time.
Mike O’Reilly (SP): 5 2⁄3 IP, 8 H, 0 R, 6 Ks, 0 BB
Andy Young (2B): 2-4, 2B
Casey Grayson (1B): 1-4, R
Jose Martinez (SS): 0-3, 2 BBs, R
A wild pitch in the top of the 10th allowed Jose Martinez to score the second run of the night for the Cardinals in their eventual 2-1 victory over the Tortugas.
Mike O’Reilly turned in 5 2⁄3 innings of scoreless ball, and the bullpen did a wonderful job continuing O’Reilly’s success, as Dailyn Martinez, Brady Bowen, and Eric Carter combined for 4 1⁄3 frames of one-run ball to give the offense a chance for the win.
The Tortugas’ three defensive miscues allowed the Cardinals to score their two runs; Palm Beach had only four hits in the game. In addition to the run Martinez scored in the 10th, first baseman Casey Grayson scored the only other run for the Cardinals.
Evan Kruczynski (SP): 3 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 Ks, 1 BB
Bryan Dobzanski (RP): 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 Ks, 1 BB

Ryan McCarvel (C): 2-3, 2B, BB, R
J.R. Davis (2B): 2-3, 2B, RBI
Going 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position and getting only three innings out of Evan Kruczynski, the Chiefs fell to the Bees on Thursday by a 4-1 final.
Kruczynski’s outing ended after he recorded nine outs. Bryan Dobzanski followed with three scoreless innings out of the bullpen for Peoria, but Colton Thomson allowed three runs on two long balls in the seventh and eighth innings to let the Bees seal up a win.
Catcher Ryan McCarvel had two hits in four plate appearances, hitting a double and walking, coming around to score the Chiefs only run. Second baseman J.R. Davis drove in McCarvel with an RBI double in the seventh.
Johan Oviedo (SP): 4 2⁄3 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 Ks, 1 BB
Levi MaVorhis (RP): 3 1⁄3 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 Ks, 0 BB
Yariel Gonzalez (3B): 2-4, 2B, R
Joshua Lopez (C): 1-4, 2B, 2 RBIs
Although they stranded 12 runners, the Renegades knocked off the Spikes on Thursday, 4-3.
The Renegades knocked Spike starter Johan Oviedo around for three runs (one earned) on nine hits in 4 2⁄3 innings. Levi MaVorhis followed Oviedo with 3 1/3 scoreless innings before Jason Zgardowski allowed the go-ahead run in the ninth. With 11 hits on the night, the Renegades could have produced considerably more offense, but their four runs were sufficient.
For the Spikes, catcher Joshua Lopez batted in two of their three runs. Third baseman Yariel Gonzalez had a double in four at-bats and scored a run.
Alvaro Seijas (SP): 4 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 6 Ks, 3 BB
Juan Alvarez (RP): 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 K, 1 BB

Imeldo Diaz (SS): 2-3, 2B, BB, R
Chase Pinder (LF): 1-4, R
J.D. Murders (2B): 1-4, 3B, R

The Cardinals had a trio of players with two hits, including designated hitter Irving Lopez, centr fielder Wadye Ynfante, and shortstop Imeldo Diaz. The Cardinals combined to go 4-to-13 with runners in scoring position.
