NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Travelers scored three times in the eighth inning to edge Corpus Christi, 5-3, Thursday night at Dickey Stephens Park.
Arkansas, who employed a 10-inning win on Wednesday, have now used a pair of eighth-inning rallies for triumphs this week.
The Hooks have dropped four in a row, with three of those setbacks decided by one run.
Cody Deason turned in an effective start for CC, spreading two runs over five innings of work. Deason went 3-0 with a 1.86 ERA in his final five Texas League outings.
Freylin Garcia struck out three over two shutout innings, giving way to Michael Horrell in the eighth. The Travs struck for three runs on three hits, two walks and an error while sending eight men to bat.
Travis Kuhn, who picked up the win, and Isaiah Campbell, earning the save, kept CC at bay from the seventh thru the ninth.
Arkansas right-hander Taylor Dollard, who leads Minor League Baseball with 16 wins, settled for a no-decision. The marker against Dollard came in the fifth as C.J. Stubbs tripled before being plated via a sac fly from Ross Adolph.
