Walkers news: May 10 -- St. Louis 6, Chicago 4

Record: 16-12, 2nd, 1 GB Des Moines
Rookie Steve Ruland continued to have an impressive introduction to the major league contributing a two-run single and three RBIs altogether to help send St. Louis to a 6-4 win over Chicago at Wrigley Field (1979).
With the win, the River Walkers took two of three games from the G-Men.
Tied 1-1, St. Louis took the lead for good with a two-run top of the third inning.
The long ball accounted for both runs in the third, Edmond Americaan and Jean Carmona going back-to-back against Chicago starter Brent Honeywell.
The Walkers lead sitting at 3-2, they added two more runs in the sixth Ruland with a two-run single off reliever Taylor Rogers and make it 5-2.
Two innings later, St.Louis loaded the bases to set the stage for Ruland to draw a run-scoring walk from Jamie Callahan.
St. Louis starter Alex Faedo worked six innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He struck out four and walked one.

John Curtiss worked a scoreless seventh inning.
Bobby Poyner got the first out of the eighth, before giving way to Reyes Moronta who finished the inning.
Moronta recorded the first two outs in the ninth, but gave up a two-run homer to Gleyber Torres.
This led to closer Tommy Kahnle entering the game. He struck out Ryan Jeffers to end it, and notch his fifth save.

Walkers news: May 12 -- Cedar Rapids 5, St. Louis 1

Record: 16-13, 2nd, 1 GB Des Moines
Cedar Rapids exploded for five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning against the St. Louis bullpen and carry it to a 5-1 win at Shibe Park (1949).
The River Walkers' Bo Bichette had led off the top of the fourth with a double off Golden Grapplers starting pitcher Merandy Gonzalez and scored on a sacrifice fly for the only run of the game up to the bottom of the eighth.
After recording an out to open the eighth, St. Louis reliever Reyes Moronta walked Matt McLain and allowed a double to Alex Bregman to put runners at second and third, and lead to Moronta's exit.
Jake Brentz entered the game and promptly hit Dominic Smith, loading the bases.
John Curtiss then replaced Brentz and allowed a sacrifice fly to Domingo Santana to tie the score.
Joc Pederson received an intentional walk to again load the bases.
Victor Robles then responded with the big hit, cranking a three-run double to make it 4-1.
Terrin Vavra followed with another single, also off Curtiss, to make it 5-1.
Gonzalez worked 6.1 innings, allowing one run on three hits. He struck out one and walked three.

Zach Schellenger finished the seventh and worked a scoreless eighth for the Grapplers.
The ninth belonged to Taylor Bashlor, who sent St. Louis down in order.
The eighth-inning meltdown spoiled a strong start for Walkers starter Argenis Batista, who worked six shutout innings. He allowed just three hits while striking out nine and issuing three bases on balls.

Walkers news: May 16 -- Kansas City 5, St. Louis 2

Records: 18-14, 2nd, 1 GB Des Moines
Mookie Betts hit a three-run homer off St. Louis reliever Bobby Poyner in the top of the fourth inning to snap a 1-1 tie and spur Kansas City to a 5-2 win at Busch Stadium (1997).
River Walkers starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks lasted just one batter -- a ground out by Pit Masters lead-off hitter Greg Jones -- before departing with a dead arm.
He is expected to miss five days and should be able to make his next start.
Two batters later, Danny Cushing put Kansas City in front with a solo homer off reliever Thad Ward.
St. Louis tied it in the bottom of the second on a Byron Buxton homer off Masters starter Trevor Oaks.
Ward began to tire in the fourth, issuing back-to-back one-out walks to Joey Gallo and Brian Mundell.
Poyner took over and struck out Yordan Alvarez.
But Betts pounded a 2-2 pitch some 434 feet over the left-field wall to put Kansas City ahead for good.
The Masters added an insurance run in the sixth when Mundell connected for an RBI double off John Curtiss.
Rookie pinch-hitter Larry Ernesto hit his second homer of the season in the eighth off Andrew Ryan.
Oaks lasted six innings for K.C., allowing the one run on five hits.
David Berg got the first out of the seventh. Ryan handled the rest of that inning and all of the eighth.

Brian Mundell connected on a bases-loaded single off Phil Maton to make it 4-3.
With the bases still jammed and two outs, Bobby Poyner came on and struck out Yordan Alvarez to end the inning.

Edmond Americaan led off the bottom of the 11th with a single off Mud Hens reliever Brian Clark. A Christian Arroyo single moved him to second before Nicky Delmonico struck out for the first out.
Justin Dunn replaced Clark and saw the bases become loaded when Rhys Hoskins reached on an error by third baseman Todd Frazier.
Ernesto, who had four singles in his previous five at bats, then drove a fly ball to center deep enough to score Americaan.
St. Louis had 17 hits in the game, 16 of them singles.
Toledo took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs off St. Louis starter Brendan Spagnuolo in the third inning.

Brock Holt drove in the first run with a fielder's choice.
The other two scored on a Spagnuolo single and Americaan double, respectively.

Spagnuolo worked six innings, allowing two runs on five hits.

It took five relievers -- Jake Brentz (1.0), Phil Maton (0.2), Poyner (0.1), John Curtiss (2.0) and Reyes Moronta (1.0) -- to cover the final six innings.
Moronta earned his first win of the season.

Walkers news: May 22 -- Columbus 9, St. Louis 8

Record: 22-16, 1st (Tied/w. Des Moines), 1 GA Kansas City
Columbus needed just two innings to jump out to a 6-0 lead, but in the end it had to hold on for a 9-8 win over St. Louis at Busch Stadium (1997).
The River Walkers had their chance in the bottom of the ninth after a one-out double from Bo Bichette off Golden Bears closer Omar Garcia.
Garcia struck out Nicky Delmonico, who had hit a two-run homer in the top of the eighth to make it 9-7, before issuing a walk to Christian Arroyo.
Rookie Michael Toglia then hit a sinking liner to center, which center fielder Zack Granite has able to corral with a diving catch to end it.
The Golden Bears worked over St. Louis starting pitcher Alex Faedo with three runs in each of the first two innings.
Jeimer Candelario drove in a run with a sacrifice fly and Xander Bogaerts contributed an RBI single in the first.
The second was all about a three-run homer from Ozzie Albies.
He would add a second home run in the sixth off reliever Bobby Poyner, the opener of back-to-back blasts with Bryce Harper which made it 9-5.
Poyner has allowed five homers in just 11.1 innings this season.
A big bottom of the fifth, where they scored five runs, had allowed the Walkers to climb back to with 7-5.
All the runs came via the long ball, Andrelton Simmons driving in the first two. Rookie Larry Ernesto later hit his third homer of the season, a three-run shot.
Bears starter David Peterson allowed both homers.
After Albies and Harper's homers had pushed the Columbus advantage back to four runs, St. Louis closed it back to within a run with its three-run eighth.
Delmonico's 11th homer of the season, off Blake Snell, made it 9-7.
Toglia later doubled and scored in a single from pinch-hitter Jared Thomas off Mauricio Cabrera.
Peterson lasted just four innings for Columbus, allowing five runs on six hits.
Gibson earned his first win of the season, by shutting out St. Louis, through the seventh.
Snell and Cabrera combined on that three-run eighth.
Garcia handled all of the ninth.

Down 2-1, Columbus scored twice in the top of the fourth and added four more runs in the sixth to carry it to a 7-5 win over St. Louis at Busch Stadium (1997).
With the win, the Golden Bears swept their three-game series against the River Walkers.
A one-out homer from David Dahl off St. Louis starting pitcher Brendan Spagnuolo tied it in the top of the fourth.

Catcher Oscar Hernandez followed with a two-run homer, his second of the season, making it 5-2.
Spagnuolo stayed in to face pitcher Kyle Gibson and gave up a single, leading to his departure.
Thad Ward took over and allowed consecutive singles to A.J. Pollack and Ozzie Albies.
He then issued back-to-back walks to Bryce Harper and Jeimer Candelario to bring in another run.
Reyes Moronta replaced Ward and struck out Paul Goldschmidt.
However, the fifth walk of the inning Dahl made it 7-2.
The Walkers sliced the deficit to 7-5 with three runs in the bottom of the sixth.
