Game 2: Chihuahuas 8 – Albuquerque Isotopes 7
Prospect Watch Despite only playing shortstop through the last few years with the Padres, Jace Peterson has played primarily a second baseman since his demotion to AAA. That is interesting considering the Padres are without their starting shortstop and saw today that they really do not have another natural on on the MLB roster... The door might be slamming shut on Sampson. He might be only 23 but still can't seem to have control of his pitches on a daily basis, and is in danger of being dropped from the 40 man.
Prospect Watch Tough game for James Needy, it was his shortest start and most runs allowed since April... Cory Spangenberg had hit in all seven games since coming back to San Antonio. That streak was snapped with an 0-5 on the day.... Renfroe had his first multi extra-base hit game since joining the Missions. He has six RBI in his last 5 at-bats including a double and two home runs.

Prospect Watch Happy Birthday Bryan Rodriguez a few days after his 23rd birthday he tossed arguably his best start of the year allowing only three baserunners in the game... Gabriel Quintana has now homered in four of his last five games and has 12 RBI in that span. He is also 14 for his last 30.
