With a sharp line drive to center field the Midland RockHounds’s D’Arby Myers extended his hitting streak yet again to 31 games. D’Arby had reached on an error in the 6th inning, but was hitless in his first three at bat against the San Antonio Missions on Wednesday night. Coming down to what could have been his last at bat of the night in the bottom of the 8th inning D’Arby drove a 1-2 pitch to center field for a single.
Down 2 to 1 heading into the 8th inning D’Arby Myers would eventually score a run on a Max Muncy bases loaded walk to tie the game. The RockHounds would prevail in the 13th inning after Jefry Marte roped a triple to right field. The play was initially ruled a 3-base error, however, that would be turned into a triple after the official scorer saw a replay of the hit. Jefry would score on a single to center by Tyler Ladendorf giving the RockHounds a 3 to 2 victory.
The series with the San Antonio Missions continues on Thursday night with Drew Carpenter (4-2, 1.36 ERA) taking the hill for the RockHounds going against Eddie Bonine (4-3, 3.41 ERA) for the Missions.
