Angry Birds & Deja Vu

May 27, 2016 - The last half of the first inning on Thursday night must have brought a very unpleasant sense of déjà vu for RockHounds starter Raul Alcantara. In his April 25 start at Corpus Christi, the right-hander was victimized for seven runs in the first two innings (the RockHounds rallied back to win that game, 8-7, in 14 innings). In the April game at "the beach," a home run to left field that was pushed the last few feet (and over the wall) by a strong wind was the "ignition" to the Hooks' early outburst. With one on and one o... Full Story

'27 Yankees Defeat the Cardinals

May 26, 2016 - Babe Ruth (correction, Matt Chapman) hit a pair of home runs and the Yankees (correction, RockHounds) added a pair of solo shots from Tyler Marincov and John Nogowski to defeat the Springfield Cardinals, 5-2 on Wednesday night at Hammons Field.

Vertigan's two-out single to center field scored Matt Chapman with the tie-breaking run in the top of the 10th, as the 'Hounds won the opener of a three-game series in Springfield over the Cardinals, 3-2. The extra innings game was the club's third in-a-row ... the sixth in their last eight games and the eighth "overtime" game in the last 12 games. In addition, the club had played a long game at home on Monday night, followed by an 11-a... Full Story

And the Te(Oscar) Goes To...

May 24, 2016 - Teoscar Hernandez, who went 4-for-5, with three doubles, three runs and four runs batted in, as the Corpus Christi Hooks rallied for an 11-7 win in 10 innings Monday night. His three-run double in the eighth tied the game at 7-7 and his double in the 10th inning was the game-winner. The RockHounds had leads of 6-1 and 7-3, but the Hooks rallied back, drawing to within 6-3 on Alex Bregman's two-run home run in the seventh. It was the Astros' prospect's 11th homer of the season, tying the RockHounds' Matt Chapman for the le... Full Story
