Today's Game Notes

LEADING OFF--The Travelers try to clinch a series win over Midland as they close out a two week homestand.

LAST TIME OUT--Blake Beers pitched five shutout innings and Midland hit three home runs in a 9-2 defeat of Arkansas on Saturday night...the RockHounds scored the first six runs of the game and got Beers his first win in Double-A...A.J. Puckett took the loss in what was a bullpen game for the Travs pitching staff...Robbie Tenerowicz had three hits including a solo homer in the loss.

BORN TO RUN--Arkansas stole two bases last night and leads the league with 92 steals...the Travs are 14 ahead of Wichita for the top spot and rank 3rd in Double-A...Jonatan Clase’s 36 total steals (19 with Arkansas) this year are third most in minor league baseball...five Travs have 10+ steals...Arkansas is on pace for 254 steals which would obliterate the franchise record of 181 set in 1987.

STRAIGHT TO SEATTLE--Yesterday RHP Bryan Woo became the third Traveler called directly to the Mariners this season joining RHP Juan Then and RHP Bryce Miller...since Arkansas became the Mariners Double-A club in 2017, 16 Travelers players have been called up directly to the big league club in season...the most came in 2019 when eight players went up.

BYRD SPREADING HIS WINGS--First baseman Robbie Tenerowicz has found his stroke over the past three weeks...had
three hits last night for his 10th multi-hit efforts in his past 17 games...batting .385/.453/.600 in that span...known as Byrd or Byrdman (nicknames he acquired in college) he ranks among the league leaders in RBIs (T-1st, 42), home runs (T-6th, 9), batting average (5th, .309), slugging percentage (8th, .528), on-base percentage (4th, .426) and runs (4th, 36).

NOTHNG BUT DONUTS--Midland’s run in the second inning last night snapped a stretch of 18 consecutive scoreless innings, the longest such streak of the season for the club...Friday night was the third shutout of the season for the pitching staff...that came on the heels of allowing just a first inning run on Thursday night.

ROSTER SHUFFLE--Seattle has made recent transactions affecting the Arkansas roster...yesterday, RHP Bryan Woo was selected by Seattle and made his Major League debut as the starter at Texas...joining the club from Extended Spring Training was RHP Jack Parisi...Wednesday, LHP Ben Onyshko was reinstated from the Development List and RHP Dayeison Arias was placed on the Injured List.

GETTING HOUNDED--The Midland RockHounds (Oakland A’s) are currently one game behind San Antonio for first place in the South Division... they dropped four of six last week at Corpus Christi...RockHounds top all of Double-A in batting average at .265 and lead the league in runs with 294...
