MadFriars' Daily Farm Report July 7

Cory Spangenberg is on fire since he came off the DL in AA. Unfortunately it was not enough as with El Paso. But both the Storm and the AZL Padres win big.

Chihuahuas 5 – Alburquerque Isotopes 7

Key Statistics: RHP Donn Roach 4 IP, 10 H, 4 ER, BB, K; CF Reymond Fuentes 2-5, 3B, RS, RBI; C Rocky Gale 3-4, RS, RBI.

Prospect Watch Reymond Fuentes in April/May in AAA 18-91 six extra-base hits, .198/.298/.286. Reymond Fuentes since the promotion back to AAA 5-14, two extra-base hits, .357/.400/.533. This is one way to prove you are deserving of a 40-man roster spot.

Missions 2 – Springfield Cardinals 3 (11 innings)

Key Statistics: RHP Josh Geer 7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 5 Ks; CF Cory Spangenberg 2-5, RS; 1B Jason Hagerty 2-4, 3B, 2 RBI .

Prospect Watch Since his activation off the DL Cory Spangenberg has reached base safely multiple times in every game including five straight multi-hit games. He is hitting a cool .480/.500/.720.. Austin Hedges allowed a stolen base... Hedges than picked off the runner...from second. Not often you see a runner picked off from second by the catcher but such is the lore of Austin Hedges.

Storm 9 – High Desert Mavericks 3

Key Statistics: RHP Colin Rea 6 IP, 7 H, 2 BB, 7 Ks; C Dane Phillips 3-5, 2B, RS, RBI; 3B Gabriel Quintana 2-5, HR (13), RBI; DH Alberth Martinez 2-5, 2B, HR (9), 2 RS, 3 RBI.

Prospect Watch Who needs Hunter Renfroe, who is out with the flu, when you have Gabriel Quintana who has now homered in three straight games, and has a 1.138 OPS in July... Catcher Dane Phillips has now hit safely in nine straight games including five multihit games in that span. Surprisingly enough he has seven triples this year, which is more than the last two years combined.

Fort Wayne was off today.

AZL Padres 9 – AZL D-backs 4

Key Statistics: RHP Jaimito Lebron 4 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB; RHP Elvin Liriano 2 IP, H, 2 BB, 5 Ks; 3B Daniel Bravo 3-4, 3B, RS, 2 RBI; CF Michael Gettys 4-5, 2B, RS, 2 RBI, 3 SB (7).

Prospect Watch We are seeing the raw hitting ability from Gettys, four hits today, we are seeing speed from him, three stolen bases, and the strikeouts, eight K's in last four games but we are still waiting to see the power. The double by Gettys was just his second extra-base hit in 14 games.. Still nice to see after he was in a 1-17 slump.
