Zephyrs beat Round Rock 9-3

Team Logo Team Logo
(WVUE) -

Matt Juengel equaled a career high with five RBI to lead the New Orleans Zephyrs to a 9-3 win over the Round Rock Express on Wednesday night.

Juengel tripled off the wall in left-center field two drive in two runs in the first inning, added an RBI single in the third and had a two-run double in the fourth to collect his second career five-RBI game.

The Zephyrs battered Round Rock starter Jimmy Reyes (0-1) for nine runs on 14 hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Robert Andino's home run leading off the third inning was the first of seven consecutive Zephyrs to reach base to open the frame. Juengel's single stretched the New Orleans lead to 4-1, and Tomas Telis and Isaac Galloway followed with run-scoring singles.

New Orleans took two out of three games in the series and now heads back on the road to begin a four-game set in Nashville on Thursday.

    1st Round TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota St. I went back and forth with two other linebackers and a cornerback in this slot. But in the end, I circled back around to my original selection of Goedert. Tight end is one of the few positions on the Saints roster where a rookie can step and be a major contributor. When watching his tape, I instantly thought Jimmy Graham with his athleticism. His route running may even be more refined than Graham’s was at that stage of his career. ...
