Dunshee, 'Hounds Deny Travs Sweep in Shutout
North Little Rock, AR - Parker Dunshee retired the first 14 batters of the game as he led the Midland RockHounds to a 2-0 shutout of the Arkansas Travelers on Sunday afternoon at Dickey-Stephens Park. The Travs were denied a sweep with the defeat but won the series and finished the homestand with a 4-2 record. Both losses on the homestand were shutouts as the Travs have now been blanked 10 times this year. Arkansas did not get a runner past first base against Dunshee and didn't overall until there were two out in the ninth inning. The game was delayed one hour at the start by rain.
Moments That Mattered
* Seth Brown doubled and Richie Martin followed with an RBI single to put the RockHounds on top in the second inning. They added another run in the next inning for the only other tally of the game.
* Kyle Lewis singled with two out in the fifth for the Travs first hit and runner of the game.
* A leadoff walk in the ninth gave the Travs hope but it was two infield singles with two out that loaded the bases and created some drama but Kyle Finnegan was able to strike out Kyle Lewis to end the contest.
Notable Travs Performances
* Nathan Bannister: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, BB, K
* Bryan Bonnell: 2 IP, H, BB, 2 K
