Trey Supak got the San Antonio Missions started on a shutout in his first game at Wolff Stadium.
It still took a timely hit from Blake Allemand in the bottom of the 10th inning for the Missions to edge the Fresno Grizzlies 1-0 on Friday.
After nine scoreless innings of regulation and the Grizzlies coming up empty in the top of the 10th, the Missions only needed one run in the bottom of the 10th to finish the game.
In keeping with the extra-innings rules, the last batter from the previous inning started the 10th as a runner on second base. That was Jacob Nottingham. He advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jake Hager.
That brought up former Boerne Champion star Allemand, a switch-hitter. Batting as a left-hander, Allemand hit the ball into left field to score Nottingham.
Supak was 11-4 in Double-A Biloxi this season. He picked up a win on the road in his debut with the Missions on July 27.
On Friday night, Supak pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He allowed four hits with eight strikeouts and one walk.
Danny Coulombe was the first pitcher out of the Missions’ bullpen and he got the final out of the seventh inning.
Jimmy Nelson pitched in relief for the Missions for the second night in a row. He pitched a scoreless eighth inning and struck out the side.
Angel Perdomo (2-0) pitched the ninth and 10th innings to earn the win and finish the combined shutout. He allowed one hit, struck out five batters and walked one.
The San Antonio Missions hit four home runs including back-to-back shots by Mauricio Dubon and Cory Spangenberg to beat the Iowa Cubs 10-2 Sunday at Wolff Stadium.
Iowa scored one run in the top of the first to lead briefly but only scored one run the rest of the way.
Missions starting pitcher Thomas Jankins, who picked up the win, also drove in San Antonio’s first run with a line drive to left in the third inning. Jankins and Trent Grisham scored later in the inning and the Missions had all the runs it turned out they needed.
Lucas Erceg hit his 11th home run of the season, a two-run blast in the fourth to make it 5-2.
Dubon hit his 12th home run of the season and Spangenberg hit his seventh back-to-back in the fifth inning.
Blake Allemand added his second home run of the season in the seventh inning.
The Missions finished with 11 hits.
Jankins (8-2) pitched six innings and gave up two runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and one walk.
Jon Olczak, who was activated off the injured list earlier in the day, pitched two innings and Donnie Hart pitched the ninth to finish the game for the Missions.
San Antonio native Blake Blake Allemand hit his first Triple-A home run Sunday.
His three-run shot in the fourth inning helped the San Antonio Missions rally to beat the Round Rock Express 10-9 Sunday at Wolff Stadium. The game was a continuation of the game that was suspended due to weather on Friday night.
The game picked up Sunday in the fourth inning with Round Rock leading 6-1. Blake Allemand’s homer was the big hit of the bottom of the fourth as the Missions scored five runs to tie it 6-6.
It was Blake Allemand’s fifth game with the Missions since being called up from Double-A Biloxi. He finished the game with four RBIs.
Blake Allemand played at Texas A&M and hit five home runs his senior season. He was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the fifth round in the 2015 draft. He played in high school at Boerne Champion.
