Rangers Minor League Recap

Triple-A Round Rock topped Sugar Land by a score of 5-1, limiting the Skeeters to just three hits in Wednesday night’s series opener at Constellation Field. The Express have gone 4-2 through the first six games of the Triple-A Final Stretch period, and are just one game back of Albuquerque (5-1) for the Triple-A West lead. 

Cole Winn was awarded the win after logging five scoreless innings in his second career Triple-A start, allowing just one hit while walking four and striking out six. Josh Jung went 2-for-4 on the night, and gave the Express an early 1-0 lead with first-inning solo home run, his eighth long ball in 32 games with Round Rock since a promotion from Double-A Frisco on August 20. Jung currently has a 15-game hitting streak, going 26-for-63 (.413) with 11 extra-base hits (four homers, seven doubles) and 13 RBI during that span. 

Yohel Pozo sealed Sugar Land’s fate in the eighth inning with a two-run homer, his 22nd of 2021. Through nine games at Triple-A this month, Pozo has hit .353 (12-34) with three home runs and 10 RBI.
