Another walk off win for the Missions and a 3-1 tally for Wednesday nights action on the Milwaukee Brewers farm.
San Antonio Missions (5-2) vs. Memphis Redbirds (2-5)
Blown save in the ninth, no problem for the Missions and Mauricio Dubon, who singled in the winning run for the second night in a row to get the 6-5 win.
Bubba Derby got the start and pitched well, going five innings, allowing just two runs on three hits and struck out five. Donnie Hart, Jeremy Jeffress, and Taylor Williams did great, and allowed just one run over three innings, but Josh Fields struggled.
Fields came into the game, leading 5-3 in the ninth inning and gave up back to back singles, then back to back walks followed by a sacrifice fly. After striking out Drew Robinson, the Missions pulled Fields for Jay Jackson who retired Yairo Munoz to get out of the inning.
It didn’t take long for the Missions to answer in the bottom of the ninth. Cory Spangenberg doubled, followed by a Jacob Nottingham walk. Nate Orf moved Spangenberg to third on a fly out to center field. Milwaukee Brewers second rated prospect, Corey Ray, was intentionally walked setting the stage for Dubon’s 0-1 single to left field to get the victory.
Dubon ended the night 2-for-5 with a double, run and RBI. Milwaukee Brewers top prospect Keston Hiura was 2-for-3 with a home run, double, two runs, two RBIs and a walk.
Missions secured the series victory and go for the series sweep tomorrow.
