Prospect Watch: Not a good day as the Missions dropped both ends of a double-header to put them five games under .500...Jason Hagerty got his second start at catcher, which will definitely help the switch-hitter's chances to make a big league roster as he moves forward...Austin Hedges and Rymer Liriano have the highest batting averages of any of the Missions‘ regulars at .248. As a team San Antonio is hitting .218.

Prospect Watch: The Quakes put three runs on the board in the first and scored in the second and third as they cruised to victory. The rubber game is tomorrow...Nice to see Duane Jones having a great night as he raised his batting average 27 points. Jones has a world of talent, just has had some trouble putting it together...Hunter Renfroe is hitting .246 overall but .324 with runners on base...Interesting outing by Chris Nunn. He gave up a home run and a double in his two innings of work but struck out the side in both frames.

Prospect Watch: For the second straight day the TinCaps didn't make any errors, which is an accomplishment for a team that averaged over two a game in April, but the pitching let them down again...Mallex Smith now has 23 stolen bases in 32 games...Fernando Perez now has 18 multi-hit games this season and now has four walks in 134 plate appearances. He is second in the Midwest League with 67 total bases...Mallex Smith in addition to leading the league in stolen bases is tied for first in triples with five and third in runs scored with 24.
