Bakersfield Blaze 10 - Storm 0

Key Statistics C Austin Hedges 1-3, 2B; LF Jeremy Baltz 1-3, BB; RHP James Needy 5.0 IP 7 H 5 R 5 ER 6 Ks.

Prospect Watch: A tough night for the Storm as the playoff hopes for one of the more talented teams in the Padres' organization are fading...Austin Hedges is one of the top prospects in San Diego's organization, but there are some questions on his bat. A .337 OBP in the hitter friendly Cal League makes you wonder about how well he will do against more advanced pitching in AA...3B Duanel Jones has a lot of potential and is still only twenty years old but after over 350 plate appearances a .222/.279/.302 line is not good..Needy's outing was his second worst of the year. The Santee High grad has only given up four of more earned runs three times in his 21 starts this season.

Prospect Watch In Dayton the Dragons beat the TinCaps for the first time in seven tries as Fort Wayne fell too 12 and 21 in the second half...Tissenbaum doesn't have much power but does posses excellent on-base skills as he has walked more than he has struck out this year at 39/31...after a tough first half in Lake Elsinore Luis Domoromo is rebounding with the TinCaps hitting .283/.307/.415.
