Redbirds Win 14th Game in Last 16
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The Memphis Redbirds won their sixth-straight game and 14th in their last 16 contests Sunday afternoon at AutoZone Park with a 9-2 triumph over the Omaha Storm Chasers (Royals) to complete a three-game sweep.
The Redbirds close their regular-season home slate with a 10-1 homestand, setting a new franchise record for most wins during a single homestand.
Adolis Garcia hit two home runs in the game, giving him 30 on the season, and he now has 92 RBI in 2019. He is the eighth Redbird to have at least 30 long balls in a single season, and he is the first Memphis hitter to drive in 90-plus in a year since Nick Stavinoha plated 109 in 2011.
Daniel Ponce de Leon earned his fourth-straight win with 5.0 innings of work, allowing two runs on four hits and striking out six. Junior Fernandez, Zac Rosscup, and Chasen Shreve finished the game with 4.0 scoreless innings of relief.
Along with Garcia's game, Rangel Ravelo was 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, and three RBI. Justin Williams also homered for his third round-tripper in the last four games.
Randy Arozarena had two singles and has now reached base in 41-straight starts, and Dylan Carlson singled and has at least one hit in all 10 games he has started as a Redbird.
Memphis outscored Omaha in the series, 22-3, and has outscored its last four opponents 36-5. Memphis pitching limited the Storm Chasers to 13 hits in the series.
The game started after a 1:43 rain delay.
With Memphis' regular-season home slate concluded, the Redbirds head on an eight-game road trip to conclude the 2019 campaign, starting tomorrow night at 6:30 at New Orleans.
