FRISCO-Rod Boykin drove in a career-high six runs and tied a career best with four hits to lead the Missions to a 20-4 rout of the Roughriders in the series opener at Dr. Pepper Ballpark on Tuesday night.
San Antonio sent 16 batters to the plate in the eighth inning and scored 10 runs to blow the game open.
The Missions hadn't scored 20 runs in a game in over seven years while Frisco hadn't allowed that many in nearly three years.
San Antonio matched a season-high with four homeruns and finished with nine extra base hits, also a season best.
In addition to collecting 17 hits, the Missions drew nine walks and had three batters hit by pitches.
Boykin entered the night in a 2-for-25 slump, and he started the evening by striking out in his first two at-bats before picking up a pair of triples and two singles.
Jesse Scholtens worked six innings to improve to 3-1. Scholtens allowed a season-high four runs but benefited from plent of support from the offense.
The two teams split four games in San Antonio last week. In that series, the Roughriders limited the Missions to 13 total runs.
San Antonio (15-9) moved into a first place tie with Corpus Christi in the South Division.
