L – Hurley (2-4)
28-24, 1.5 GU
Eric Hurley (5.49 ERA/.292 BAA) turned in his second consecutive strong start on Tuesday, yielding three runs – one earned – in six innings. He scattered seven hits, walked two and struck out four.
The RedHawks offense did not have an extra-base hit in the game. John Mayberry and Travis Metcalf led the way with two singles apiece.
Second baseman Ryan Roberts singled and walked.
Chris Davis was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
Left-hander Bill White struck out one in a perfect eighth inning. After getting off to a slow start, the reliever has allowed just one run while walking one and fanning seven in his last six appearances.
33-17, 7.0 GU
Frisco returns home on Sunday to face the Tulsa Drillers. Thomas Diamond is expected to take the hill for the second time this season. His first start of the year came last Wednesday against the same Tulsa club.
L – Diaz (0-1)
HR – Restko (4)
30-22, 2.5 GB
Left-hander Zach Phillips gave up three runs – two earned – in five innings of work on Tuesday. He allowed six hits, walked three, and fanned six.
First baseman J.T. Restko (.333/.385/.667 in May) hit a solo home run. It was his lone hit of the afternoon.
Jose Vallejo and Grant Gerrard both went 1-for-5 with a triple. The three-bagger was Vallejo's first of the season, but that shouldn't be surprising given Bakersfield's unique dimensions. It is extremely tough to hit a triple at Sam Lynn Park.
Centerfielder Truan Mehl singled twice, walked, and stole his 16th base.
35-12, 6.5 GU
The red-hot and first place LumberKings took Tuesday off. They have won four consecutive games.
