MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: August 6

Donn Roach, Max Fried and Matt Andriese all had solid starts while the Storm put up 13 in Rancho Cucomonga.

Nashville Sounds 3 – Tucson Padres 0

Key Statistics RHP Matt Andriese 5 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K; LHP Tommy Layne 1.2 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, BB, 3 K; CF Cameron Maybin 0-2, K.

Prospect Watch: T-Pads manage only three hits, all singles as they were shutdown by Nashville's starter Chris Narveson (6-8, 4.99 ERA). Since hitting a home run in his first at-bat Maybin has gone hitless in his last four games (0-9).

San Antonio Missions 4 – Arkansas Travelers 2

Key Statistics RHP Donn Roach 5 IP, 4 H, ER, 0 BB, 4 K (W, 7-10, 3.83 ERA); RHP Leonel Campos 1 IP, 1 K (0.44 ERA); DH Rocky Gale 3-4, 3 RBI.

Prospect Watch: Every time we write that Donn Roach has found his groove he gets blasted in his next start. It is safe to say that a big issue plaguing him early in the season was control. One of the biggest reasons why his ERA has gone from over dropped nearly two runs in the last few months is the fact that he hasn't walked more than one batter in eight starts… After walking eight batters in his first five AA appearances, RHP Leonel Campos has walked only three over his last 10.2 innings. His overall Fort Wayne/San Antonio numbers are a staggering 44 G, 1.58 ERA, 57 IP, 25 H, 33 BB, 86 K.

Lake Elsinore Storm 13 – Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 5

Key Statistics Johnny Barbato 4 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, K; CF Travis Jankowski 3-6, 2B, RS, 3 RBI, SB (66); LF Jeremy Baltz 2-4, 2B, HR (7), 2 RS, 4 RBI; 3B Duanel Jones 3-5, 2 2B, 2 RS, RBI.

Prospect Watch: In 42 games Jeremy Baltz has been the only Storm regular to keep his batting average over .300. He has done so by posting an OBP over .380 and a .500 SLG. The twenty-two year old also has a ten game hitting streak and hitting .310 since the All Star Break.

Key Statistics LHP Max Fried 6 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, K; RHP Roman Madrid 1 IP, 2 K (S, 18); C Rodney Daal 1-2, RBI, BB.

Prospect Watch: Max Fried's last two starts 12 IP, 10 H, 0 ER, 4 BB, 5 K. Last ten starts 3-4, 2.75 ERA, 52 IP, 51 H, 23 BB, 43 K. After giving up a home run in four straight games he has gone back to back starts without allowing one.

AZL Padres 1 – AZL Giants 2

Key Stats: RHP Sam Holland 2 IP, H, 3 K; SS Franchy Cordero 1-4, 2B; RF Franmil Reyes 1-3, BB.
