The Express then added two runs in the fifth and three in the sixth. In the fifth, Robinson hit an RBI double and then scored on a single by Stubbs, while Brett Hayes hit a two-run home run in the sixth.

Luis Diaz (1-3) went 4 1/3 innings, allowing four runs and three hits in the Pacific Coast League game. He also struck out two and walked two.

The Bees (24-18) were held scoreless for the second time this season, while the Express’ staff recorded its second shutout of the year.

Travis Snider and Preston Beck each doubled for Round Rock.
