Prospect Watch After rocking the Futures Game, Hunter Renfroe raced around to score the game tying run in the bottom of the ninth. Unfortunately the rest of the game was not as magical as he had a multi-strikeout game for the first time in AA…RHP Trevor Gott hasn’t had the same success since his promotion to AA with back to back bad outings earlier this month. Since then he has settled back down and today set a new high mark for strikeouts in a game with four in two innings allowing only a single.
Storm 2 – High Desert Mavericks 7
Prospect Watch In his shortest outing of the year Ross just couldn’t find home plate. His next shortest outing was 3.1 where he allowed ten runs. This wasn’t so much a massacre as it was an inability to find the strike zone. Ross was taken out early… Flying under the radar catcher Dane Philips who has a .989 OPS over the last 30 games. On the season in Elsinore he has a .593 SLG which leads the team.

Ems 2 – Vancouver Canadians 9
Prospect Watch After starting out 1-11, Nick Torres has hit safely in his last five games hitting .318 in the process… Auston Bousfield hit his first triple and also reached base safely three times for the first time. Sadly he committed his second error in only ten games which is saying something considering he is an outfielder.
