The San Antonio Missions scored the first four runs of the game before falling to the Midland RockHounds 7-5 on Wednesday at Wolff Stadium.
For the second straight night, the Missions shut out the RockHounds over the first five innings.
The Missions got strong pitching early. Starter Daniel Camarena threw three shutout innings. Michel Baez followed by allowing one run over three innings as the Missions built a 4-1 lead after six innings.
Ripken Reyes gave the Missions a fast start by leading off the bottom of the first inning with his fifth home run of the season. Reyes, Jackson Merrill, Korry Howell and Justin Farmer had two hits each and the Missions finished with 12 hits.
The RockHounds turned the game around with four runs in the seventh inning. That included a crucial error by the Missions with two outs followed shortly thereafter by a three-run homer by Max Muncy.
Midland put the game out of reach with a two-run homer by Jack Winkler in the top of the eighth.
