Page 7 CM Round Rock Leader SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2015 A7 SPORTS NEWS AND NOTES Playoffs atough sell: Minor-league playoff baseball has always been a tough sell with fans, and the Round Rock Express have found that out. Between kids being back in school, summer vacations over and football taking over the sports fans' conscience, teams have trouble drawing for postseason games. Round Rock, second in the Pacific Coast League in average home attendance with 8,623 during the regular season, averaged about half of that 4,3 5 1 for its first three home playoff games. Game 1 ofthePCL championship series drew an announced crowd of 4,866 to Dell Diamond on Tuesday. "I feel good about where we're at," Express general manager Chris Almendarez said.
"We have ourtraditional fans out here. It's hard to plan promotional things because you don't have much lead time before the playoffs. The weather was a factor, too." After 7 1 days of no measurable rain, the heavens opened up on Round Rock for Game 1 of the semifinals last week, and the Express' next two playoff games also had the strong threat of rain. "It's always difficult this time of year," Almendarez said. "We go through the whole season, average at least 8,500, and then we get to September and kids are busy with school sports and activities.
Parents don't go out as much on weeknights.And let's face it: Texas is a football state." Fan rivalry: The Rangers (Round Rock) vs. Astros (Fresno) connection added an interesting dynamic to the two PCL finals games at Dell. A significant number of Astros fans showed up, rooting loudly for the visiting team. "Don't forget, we still consider Central Texas part of Astros country," said Dan Villanueva of Cedar Park. "We're all getting along, though.
Astros-Rangers up in Arlington has got to be way more intense." Astros prospects on display: The Fresno Grizzlies have two of the Astros' top-1 0 prospects and five of the major league club's top 25, according to MLB.com. Starting pitcher Mark Appel, the No. 1 overall pick in the 20 13 draft, is No. 2 on the list. If there's a Game 5, the Stanford exwillstart it.Heis 10-3 with a 4.3 7 ERAsplit between Double-Aand Triple-A.
Speedy second baseman Tony Kemp, the No. 1 0 prospect, is batting .308 with 35 stolen bases. Also in the preferred prospects group are starting pitcher Asher Wojciechowski, who's scheduled to pitch Game center fielder Andrew Aplin; and shortstop Nolan Fontana. Winner-take-all: The PCL champ will take on the International League champ in a one-game finale for the Triple-A crown next Tuesday in El Paso. Columbus (Cleveland) is playing Indianapolis (Pittsburgh) inthelL series.

With two on and two out after Nicholas' RBI hit, Tommy Field hit a deep fly down the left-field line that was caught a few feet from the fence.
"Straily was outstanding," Express manager Jason Wood said. "He mixed pitches, kept us off balance. He was constantly changing speeds and direction and stayed ahead in the count. Sometimes, you just tip your cap to the other guy." Big first baseman Jon Singleton, the Astros' top power prospect, gave Straily all the offense he needed in the first inning with a 408-foot, two-run homer that just cleared the center-field fence. Fresno added a run in the seventh on Tony Kemp's RBI single.
The diminutive second baseman, a top-10 Astros prospect, has been the Grizzlies spark plug, going 5 for 10 in the first two games. The 5-6, 160-pounder was the 2013 SEC player of the year at Vanderbilt. Round Rock starter Robert Coello didn't pitch badly, but he was no match for Straily. Coello worked 5 innings, allowing four hits and two runs. Game 1: Frisco Kids do it again for Express In a wild series opener, the recently promoted Double-A gang of Frisco RoughRiders lifted the Express to a 9-8 victory over Fresno in 12 innings Sept.

"I love being in that moment," said Brinson, the Rangers' No. 4 prospect who had three hits Express inf ielder Beamer Weems had a hit and two walks in the Express' 9-8 win the opener of the PCL championship series against Fresno, jamie harms for round rock leader batting .300 for the Express. Burg, who inherited the DH role when the Rangers called up Ryan Rua on Sunday, delivered a homer and two hits.
Cordell, the newest member of the team, had a critical base hit in his first postseason action. Round Rock pounced on Fresno early, building a 7-1 lead on the PCL's top seed after three inning.
