Prospect Watch: After earning a win in his first AAA appearance, Kevin Quackenbush was not as well received tonight. He faced four batters allowing all to reach base, and had only 11-10 S/B ratio… On the other end of the spectrum Brad Boxberger had just as bad of a S/B ratio (18/16), however he allowed no hits over four innings while striking out four and walking one… Ben Francisco had his first hit with the T-Pads, an RBI double in the 4th.

Prospect Watch: It is hard to win a game when you only go 1-12 with RISP. Remember whe Everett Williams became a prospect again after hitting .307 in April? Well after a .594 OPS in May he fell back to obscurity. Tonight though, he added two hits and is now hitting .295 in June. His overall numbers are still a depressing .266/.329/.341 considering he doesn't hit for much power, strikes out a lot, and only has eight stolen bases.
Prospect Watch: The second half started off the same way the first half did… with a loss. Three errors help to lead to 4 unearned runs and that was all the difference in the game. James Needy cruised through the first four innings facing only two over the minimum. That changed after a one out strikeout and wild pitch changed the course of the game. Three errors and a single later and the game was over.

Prospect Watch: Maybe Weickel should come out of the pen more often? 17 hitters, 9 strikeouts. Weickel had all his pitches working and easily set a career high in strikeouts. In his last two outings Weickel has gone 10.1 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 14 K… TinCaps managed only two hits one each by Adamson and Martinez.
