Interesting Notes:

Do it Twice: Kevin Cron recorded his second multi-home run game of the season last night. His first was a three-homer performance on April 25, 2019 against Fresno. In that game, Tim Locastro also had three home runs. Kevin is tied with Round Rock's Yordan Alvarez for the league-lead (17).

Ouch: Tim Locastro was hit by a pitch three separate times in last night's contest. However, the Aces outfielder is no stranger to being plunked. It was the fourth time in his professional career he was hit by a pitch three times in a game. Since 2013 when he was drafted, he has been hit 164 times. He led the PCL in hit by pitches in 2018 with 26, and the Texas League with 26 in 2017. This season he has been hit five times but Wyatt Mathisen leads the team with 9 HBPs.
