With Brennan rolling, bottom of the 5th Kellen Strahm hit his 13th double bringing in Blaine Crim and Justin Foscue to push the score 3-0.
Speaking of Foscue, there is no one who is hotter at the plate than he has been. He went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a walk.
In August Justin Foscue has hitting .333 AVG, 4 HR and 9 RBI.
After 6 innings with a 3-0 lead RoughRiders went to their bullpen starting with newcomer Matt Wivinis (H,1) making his AA debut after 14 appearances with Rangers Rookie league. Matt retired the Missions hitters in order on 10 pitches.
