Renfroe's five hits lead San Antonio to sweep

Right-hander Hancock leaves game after taking line drive off left knee

Bill Center, longtime sportswriter for U-T San Diego, is an employee of the Padres.

Right fielder Hunter Renfroe was 5-for-6 Saturday with two doubles, a triple and his ninth home run for two RBIs and four runs scored to lead Double-A San Antonio to a doubleheader sweep of Tulsa in the Texas city.

Renfroe, the Padres first-round pick (13th overall) in the 2013 draft, had a double, triple and homer in the Missions' 6-2 win in the opener. He didn't have a shot at the cycle because he had only three at-bats in the seven-inning opener.

Renfroe was 2-for-3 in the second seven-inning game and drove in the first run in 38-48 San Antonio's 3-0 win.

Renfroe is hitting .400 (14-for-35) over his last 10 games to raise his average from .247 to .263.

San Antonio's doubleheader sweep started on a sour note when right-handed starter Justin Hancock (3.24 earned run average) was forced out of the game when he was struck on the left knee by a line drive. Hancock allowed one hit in two-thirds of an inning.

Right-hander Bryce Morrow (1-0, 1.23 ERA) followed Hancock and allowed two hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings. Right-hander Adam Cimber (3.45) allowed two unearned runs on two hits with a strikeout in two innings.

Right-hander Dennis O'Grady (3-2, 4.25 ERA) allowed three hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six shutout innings in the second game. Right-hander Tayron Guerrero (2.97) struck out one in a perfect inning to get his 10th save.

Second baseman Diego Goris (.271) was 2-for-3 with a RBI and two runs scored in the first game. Third baseman Duanel Jones (.236) was 2-for-4 with a sacrifice fly and two RBIs in the two games but committed his 13th error. First baseman Luis Domoromo (.236) was 2-for-7 with a double and a run scored. Shortstop Jose Rondon (.203) was 1-for-6 with a sacrifice fly and three RBIs in the two games.
