Prospect Watch: Friday night’s loss put the Missions one game away from elimination. The big blow came in the sixth inning when Arkansas Travelers’ 1b C.J. Cron blasted a three-run home run over right-center field to break open a scoreless game....Rico Noel had a great night with a pair of doubles and a stolen base. This season Rico had 59 stolen bases and a .348 on-base percentage. Next season he may make up a very talented Triple-A outfield in El Paso of Jaff Decker and Reymond Fuentes...A tough outing for Roach who has pitched much better in the second half with a 2.59 ERA compared to the first at 4.34...tonight the Missions will send lefty Juan Oramas to the mound, who after Matt Wisler has been San Antonio’s best pitcher.
