And the RoughRiders strike first in the first, Kellen Strahm lines this off Jordan Walker at third, Dustin Harris scores it’s 1-nothing.
Springfield’s Michael McGreevy would get revenge on Strahm striking him out looking in the third.
But Frisco adds to that lead in the fourth, Josh Stowers singles to left, David Garcia strolls home it’s 2-0.
Still in that fourth when Dustin Harris takes this deep to right center, over the wagon gate and gone, a three run home run, it’s 5-0 Frisco.
But Springfield battles back, two on for Malcolm Nunez who takes this deep to left, over the fence and the bullpen, a three run shot, it’s 5-3.
The cards tied it at five, but Frisco bounced back and snapped Springfield’s winning streak 10-6.
