NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark — Three Frisco RoughRider pitchers combined on a three-hit shutout as they defeated the Arkansas Travelers, 1-0 on Sunday night at Dickey-Stephens Park. Edgar Arredondo (4 IP, 2 H, 4 K), Blake Bass (Win, 3 IP, H, BB, 8 K) and Demarcus Evans (Save, 2 IP, 2 K) kept the Travs off balance and off the board all night. It was the second time the Travs have been shutout in three games this series and third time in six games on the homestand. Ljay Newsome took the loss for the Travs in his Double-A debut but allowed just the one run on seven hits over 5.2 innings with one strikeout.
