Photo Blog (part 2): A Memphis Sunday

On the road, Memphis continued to mow down the Oklahoma City Redhawks today with a 10-3 victory for starting pitcher Tyler Lyons (6.0 IP, 9H, 3R, 2BB, 4SO, 3.46 ERA). However today’s romp got off to a slower start with the Baby Birds trailing after the 3rd inning and not recovering the lead until the 7th inning when Justin Christian hit in Greg Garcia and Adron Chambers doubled to knock in three (Huffman, Towles and Christian). In the 8th, Jermaine Curtis collected an rbi and J.R. Towles (catcher) hit a 2 run blast giving Memphis a 9-3 lead. In the 9th, Greg Garcia singled to score Oscar Taveras to bring the Redbirds to 10. Memphis leads the series 3-0 with the final game tomorrow (Monday, 7:05pm CT).
Ryan Jackson dazzled at 2B in the afternoon game:
Adron Chambers is so darn friendly… and he made the highlights today too:
Brock Peterson homered in the 2nd inning & played 1B:
Chad Huffman (DH) went 2 for 4 with a double, a walk and a strike out.
Eric Fornataro came in to pitch the 8th, hit the first batter, struck out the 2nd and got a double play to end the inning.
… and just a few more shots from the wonderful day at the park:
….So that’s it for me during this Memphis/OKC series. Tomorrow I’ll be watching my all-time favorite ballplayer on a little league field while Memphis (fingers crossed!) completes the sweep!
Go Baby Birds!!
