Redbirds Finish Just Short against Round Rock, 5-4
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The Memphis Redbirds had the tying run on second base with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning Monday night at AutoZone Park, but he was thrown out at the plate trying to score on a base hit before a pop-out ended the game with the first-place Round Rock Express (Astros) on top, 5-4.
Ramon Urias and Max Schrock had back-to-back singles with one out in the bottom of the ninth, and Dylan Carlson followed with a single to right field but Urias was erased at the plate trying to score from second. Harrison Bader popped out to end the ballgame.
Carlson was 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in the game, and he has a hit in all five games he has played in Memphis with multiple hits in each of the last four. Bader homered in the bottom of the sixth inning to put the Redbirds on the board, which was his seventh in the last nine games. He is now on a nine-game hitting streak.
Genesis Cabrera allowed single runs in the first, third, and fifth innings and finished with two earned runs in 6.0 innings. He walked three and struck out five. Seth Elledge allowed two runs in 2.0 innings of relief, and Chasen Shreve struck out two in the top of the ninth to set up the comeback.
Bader and Justin Williams had outfield assists in the game for the Redbirds, who have won eight of their last 10 games.
Chas McCormick was 2-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI for the Express (76-49).
Memphis and Round Rock continue their four-game series tomorrow night at 6:35. The Redbirds conclude their regular-season home slate on Sunday.
