Northwest Arkansas Naturals

The Frisco RoughRiders traveled home to Riders Field after sweeping their 6-game series against the San Antonio Missions (Padres). The Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Royals) are now in town to play a 6-games series against the RoughRiders. The RoughRiders will look to match a 9-1 start they haven’t seen since 2016 and they only need to win on Tuesday to make that happen.

Through their nine games, the RoughRiders line-up have scored 1st in every single one of them.

Frisco RoughRiders probable rotation through Thursday:

  • Tues: RHP Kevin Gowdy (0-0, 3.00)
  • Wed: LHP Avery Weems (0-0, 20.25)
  • Thu: RHP Justin Slaten (0-0, 3.60)
  • Fri: LHP Cody Bradford
  • Sat: RHP Jack Leiter
  • Sun: LHP Cole Ragans

That’s a rotation that no team wants to face. If the rotation changes, I will update this post.

Asa Lacy is currently on the Naturals roster and is the Royals number # ranked prospect.

The Naturals rotation is like this:

  1. Tue: RHP Alec Marsh
  2. Wed: LHP Drew Parrish
  3. Thu: LHP Anthony Veneziano (0-2, 14.73)
  4. Fri:
  5. Sat: LHP Asa Lacy
  6. Sun:

The 5 starters for NWA all rank in the top 30 of the Royals prospects Lacy 4, Marsh 12, Zerpa 13, Veneziano 17 and Parrish 29
