Prospect Watch:Bryan Rodriguez pitched his best game of the season but a rare meltdown by relief pitcher Cody Hebner saw the Nuts plate eight runs on the top of the eigth inning...How tough is it to be a relief pitcher? Hebner's ERA went from 1.50 to 4.01 on the basis of one bad inning.

South Bend Silver Hawks 5 - TinCaps 3

Key Statistics DH Fernando Perez 2-3, BB; RF Franmil Reyes 1-2, 2 BBs; 1B Jake Bauers 1-3, 2 RBI, BB; C Adolfo Reina 1-3, BB; RHP Adrian De Horta 5.0 IP 5 H 3 R 3 ER 4 BB 4 K; RHP Eric Yardley (L, 0-1) 3.0 IP 2 H 2 R 4 Ks.

Prospect Watch:The Silver Hawks broke a tie game in the eighth inning when the first South Bend batter was able to get on base with an error by 3b Dustin Peterson, his fourteenth of the year. South Bend was able to plate two, which was the difference in the game. On the positive side Peterson is leading the team in doubles with 12 and is third in total bases with 54....The biggest problem that De Horta has is with his command. His K/BB ratio is 21/18…Man-child Franmil Reyes, who is only 19 and six-foot-five, 240 lbs., is hitting .292/.362/.460...Fernando Perez had his fifth walk of the season, his second this month in 152 plate appearances this season. He is also hitting .333/.357/490 and is leading the team in extra-base hits with 15. So much for stat heads, which includes me.
