Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

MEM­PHIS, Tenn. — Josh Banks tossed his first com­plete game of the sea­son for Round Rock, but the Ex­press dropped a 2-1 de­ci­sion to the Red­birds at Au­toZone Park.

The Ex­press ( 3 5 - 4 7 ) dropped their 21st one-run game of the sea­son and fell a sea­son-low 12 games un­der .500. The Red­birds (44-37) have won each of the first two games of the three-game se­ries.

Banks (8-6) fell to 1-5 in eight road starts, de­spite a 3.12 road ERA. The Ex­press have av­er­aged just 1.5 runs per game in Banks’ starts.

Fri­day, the Ex­press had seven hits and stranded eight run­ners. In the fourth, Round Rock loaded the bases with no outs but did not score.

Round Rock scored in the eighth when Brian Bo­gu­se­vic sin­gled, moved to third on Tommy Everidge’s dou­ble and scored on a ground­out by Ra­mon Vazquez.
