Missions blank Oklahoma City 6-0
Six Missions notch multi-hit games
The San Antonio Flying Chanclas tallied another shutout Saturday night as they blanked the Oklahoma City Dodgers 6-0 in front of a crowd of 5,667 at Wolff Stadium. The shutout was the fourth in six games for San Antonio pitching.
Six different Flying Chanclas hitters posted multi-hit efforts highlighted by three-hit nights from Mauricio Dubon, David Freitas, and Keston Hiura. Nate Orf and Dubon smacked back-to-back doubles to begin the game and the Flying Chanclas never looked back.
Corbin Burnes looked strong through four innings as he fanned seven and allowed two hits but was chased in the fifth inning after Oklahoma City loaded the bases. Miguel Sanchez came on in relief of Burnes and left the bases stranded. Sanchez went 2 1/3 innings to pick up his first win of the season.
Cory Spangenberg’s solo home run in the fourth inning was the exclamation point of the five extra-base hits for San Antonio. Dubon, Freitas, Hiura, and Nate Orf all doubled off Oklahoma City pitching.
