The RoughRiders broke up the Missions’ no-hit bid in the top of the seventh inning. Lead-off man Diosbel Arias dropped a fly ball into right field for a base hit.
Following the hit in the seventh, Frisco ended up with runners on first and second with one out after a walk to Jordan Procyshen. Henry Henry came on to pitch and walked the first batter he faced which loaded the bases. After a pop out, Henry threw a wild pitch which scored the game’s first and only run.
The Missions threatened in the bottom of the eighth inning. Olivier Basabe reached on a single. Jack Suwinski drew a walk which put two runners on with one out. The rally ended on back-to-back strikeouts.
