Patrick Cantwell’s base hit gave Frisco a 2-1 walk-off victory over the San Antonio Missions on Saturday night at Dr Pepper Ballpark. It was a game dominated by excellent starting pitching with each team struggling to find any offense.

Joe Ross, making his first Double-A start, pitched seven innings allowing one run, one walk, and striking out eight for San Antonio.  His only mistake was a pitch to Drew Robinson who lifted a homer to left-center in the seventh inning.

Not be outdone, Frisco pitcher Alec Asher also pitched seven innings, surrendering five hits, no walks and seven strikes. He did not give up a run.

The Missions tied the game the eighth off of reliever Joseph Ortiz. Cory Spangenberg bunted to get on base and Yeison Asencio singled to left, moving Spangenberg to thrid. Ortiz then threw a wild pitch that got past catcher Cantwell and Spangenberg scored to tie the game at 1-1 Ortiz got a pop up to end the inning but the damage was done.

Frisco was unable to score in the bottom of the frame and Keone Kela pitched a quick top of the ninth to give Frisco a shot to break the tie in the ninth.

Drew Robinson led off the innig with a walk and was then moved over to second on a bunt by Hanser Alberto. Teodoro Martinez singled in the next at bat and Chris Grayson was able to move both runners over on a ground ball to first. Patrick Cantwell lofted a single to short center field that scored Robinson and gave Frisco the 2-1 win.

Kela was awarded the win for Frisco and Josh Geer was giving the loss for San Antonio. The win put Frisco at sixty wins for the season, which is currently tied with the Midland Rockhounds, but still kept Frisco in first place in the Texas League South division.

The RoughRiders play the Missions again tomorrow at 6:05 at Dr Pepper Ballpark. Frisco will send Jerad Eickhoff to the mound to face Missions' Bryce Morrow.
