Taking a look at Tuesday’s action

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Round Rock Express 5, Memphis Redbirds 3

Edmundo Sosa (3B): 1-3, HR, 3 RBI, R

Jake Woodford (SP): 5 IP, 5 R, 6 H, 5 BB, 4 Ks

Memphis put together a three-run seventh, but it was too little and too late.

Round Rock took an early 1-0 lead in the first, made it 4-0 in the third, and 5-0 in the fourth. Edmundo Sosa hit a three-run home run in the top of the seventh to cut it to 5-3, but Memphis couldn’t get anything else going.

Jake Woodford (4-5) threw five innings and gave up five runs, six hits, five walks, and struck out four. Giovanny Gallegos, Conner Greene, and Andrew Morales all turned in a scoreless inning.

Memphis falls to 80-54 and continues the three-game series with Round Rock tonight at 7:05.

Arkansas Travelers 9 at Springfield Cardinals 3

Jose Martinez (DH): 2-4, 2 RBI

Andrew Knizner (C): 1-4, HR

Michael Wacha (SP): 2.1 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks

It was far from the night Michael Wacha wanted and was even worse for Springfield as a whole.

Arkansas scored a run in the first and second, three in the third, and two more in the fourth to gain and early 7-0 edge. The Cardinals finally got something in the bottom of the fifth on a 2-RBI single by Jose Martinez.

The Travelers added two more in the top of the seventh and Springfield closed out the scoring in the bottom of the ninth with a solo home run by Andrew Knizner.

Michael Wacha was tagged for five runs, three earned, six hits, one walk, and he struck out three in 2 13 innings. Connor Jones also contributed 2 13 but only gave up two runs. Elniery Garcia continued that trend by also giving up two runs in 2 1/3. Landon Beck was the only effective reliever pitching two scoreless innings.

Palm Beach Cardinals 10 at Dunedin Blue Jays 2

Conner Capel (LF): 2-5, 2 2B, 4 RBI, R

Scott Hurst (DH): 2-4, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, R

Jose Godoy (C): 2-4, 2B, BB, 2 R

Juan Yepez (1B): 2-4, BB, 2 R

Ian Oxnevad (SP): 5 IP, 2 R, 7 H, 1 BB, 3 Ks

Palm Beach fell behind early but a six-run fifth broke things wide open.

Dunedin scored a run in the second and third to take a 2-0 lead. A Scott Hurst RBI double in the fourth cut that lead in half. The six-run fifth put them up for good. Conner Capel hit a 2-RBI double, Kramer Robertson scored on a groundout, and Hurst hit a three-run bomb.

Some Palm Beach insurance came in the eighth when Robertson walked with the bases loaded and Capel connected with another 2-RBI double.

Ian Oxnevad (7-6) went five innings and gave up two runs, seven hits, one walk, and struck out three. Will Latcham threw 1 13 scoreless innings. Jacob Patterson turned in 1 23 scoreless and Bryan Dobzanski one scoreless inning.

Palm Beach has split the first two games of this series. Game 3 is tonight at 5:30.

Batavia Muckdogs 8, State College Spikes 1

Lars Nootbaar (RF): 1-4, 2B, RBI

Eli Kraus (SP): 2.1 IP, 6 R, 5 H, 3 BB, 1 K

All the scoring came early, but hardly any of it came from the good guys.

Batavia took a 2-0 lead in the first and extended that to 8-0 in the the third. The Spikes finally got on the board in the fourth when Edwin Figuera led off with a triple and scored on a Lars Nootbaar groundout.

Batavia teed off on State College starter Eli Kraus (2-2). Kraus went 2 13 innings and gave up six runs, five hits, three walks, and struck out one. Cory Malcom pitched 2 23 out of the pen and gave up two runs. Jim Voyles pitched two innings and Kevin Hamann pitched one, neither gave up a run.

After their streak of hot play, State College has now lost four straight and their elimination number is down to 2. They begin a three-game home series against West Virginia tonight at 6:05.
