Luis Mendoza was incredibly efficient on Tuesday evening, but he still got the loss despite pitching an eight-inning complete game.

Mendoza threw just 86 pitches in those eight frames, giving up one run on six hits. He walked two and struck out four.

The RedHawks were shut down by O-Royals starter Lenny DiNardo.

Joaquin Arias (1/4), Justin Smoak (1/4), Royce Huffman (1/3, BB) and Travis Metcalf (1/4) combined for OKC's four base hits.

Third baseman Jonathan Greene provided all of Frisco's run production, going 2-for-3 with a walk and a pair of home runs. He knocked home five runs total.

L - Alvarez (2-3)
11-14, 4.5 GB


Perhaps the biggest news of the day in the Rangers' system was right-hander Michael Main's return to the mound.

The 20-year-old made a rehab start with the AZL Rangers on Tuesday, striking out all three hitters he faced in one inning of work.

Richard Alvarez followed. Although he surrendered just one hit in three innings, four walks, a wild pitch, and a balk led to two earned runs.

First baseman Michael Ortiz (2/4, 2B) and right fielder Guillermo Pimentel (1/3, 2B, BB) both doubled.

Centerfielder Edward Alfonzo singled three times in four trips.

The rookie club got stolen bases from Pimentel (12), Alfonzo (9), Ortiz (5) and second baseman Alex Gonzalez (16).
