The San Antonio Missions managed only one hit in the first seven innings on the way to a 3-2 loss to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals on Wednesday at Wolff Stadium.
The Missions made it close when Yorman Rodriguez, making his Double-A debut, hit a solo home run in the eighth inning. The next batter, Michael Curry, doubled but was left stranded.
The loss ended a five-game Missions win streak.
Naturals starting pitcher Drew Parrish went seven innings and allowed one run and one hit while striking out four. Yefri Del Rosario held the Missions hitless the next two innings.
