Game Notes: San Antonio Missions at New Orleans Baby Cakes

May 14, 2019 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - San Antonio Missions News Release

San Antonio Missions (21-17) at New Orleans Baby Cakes (20-18)

Game #39/Away Game #19

Tuesday, May 14, 11:00 a.m.

The Shrine on Airline / KONO 860 AM

RHP Aaron Wilkerson (1-0, 0.55) vs. RHP Ben Meyer (1-3, 6.84)

Going Streaking: With a 1-for-3 performance in last night's game, Missions outfielder Tyrone Taylor has extended his hitting streak to five games. He now has three different five-game hitting streaks so far this season. He currently ranks third on the team in hits (33) and second on the team in total bases (60).

Clean Fielding: Missions outfielder Tyrone Taylor and utility man Jake Hager have been an example for clean fielding this season. Taylor has yet to make an error in the 34 games that he has played the field. Behind Taylor comes Hager, who is errorless in the 25 games he has played the field. Taylor has been successful so far at all three outfield positions while Hager has been able to play five different positions this season (1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF).

Milestone Watch: Heading into today's game, the Missions have multiple players on the brink of milestones. With his start today, Missions starter Aaron Wilkerson will be two starts away from 100 for his career. Jake Hager currently sits three RBI short of 300 for his career. Tyler Saladino is two his away from 800 career hits. Lastly, Deolis Guerra is six strikeouts shy of 800 for his minor league career.

Salvage A Split: After last night's defeat, San Antonio has now dropped back-to-back games. They have lost three straight games twice on the young season and three straight road games twice. A loss today would mean the Missions drop the series and the second time they would lose a series after winning the series opener. On April 29 the Missions took game one of their series against Iowa at Principal Park before dropping three straight.
