Key Statistics: Jonathan Galvez 1-2, RBI.
Prospect Watch Jason Hagerty has been in San Antonio for the better part of three years. After years of injuries he has finally been healthy for the better part of the year, and has been putting up numbers consistent with it. He’s hit over .250 in every month, has had an OPS .830 in all except one. By the end of July will have played in more games than the last two years combined. He might not be a catcher anymore but he is still putting up offensive numbers to keep his prospect status alive.
Storm 7 – High Desert Mavericks 3
Prospect Watch Domoromo’s blast was the key to the Storm’s win. It was a much needed hit as it was the 1B/OF first home run since mid-June and his first multi extra-base hit game in two weeks. He has cooled off considerable since his .375/.407/.525 month of June, as he was hitting just .231 in July.

TinCaps 9 – Quad City River Bandits 2
Prospect Watch Welcome back to full season ball Max Fried. Pay no attention to the innings pitched, Fried was on a pitch count. He was not dominating, but he was effective, with 5-0 GO/FO, and two line out double plays… Trea Turner hit as many doubles today as he did in two weeks in Eugene. He has hit safely in all three games and is 5-14 in his brief time in Fort Wayne.

Ems 3– Vancouver Canadians 0
Prospect Watch Remember when Michael Kelly was a Top 60 pick? Despite the setbacks Kelly might finally be shining. In five of his seven starts this year Kelly has gone 25.2 IP, 11 H, 2 ER and a 0.70 ERA. His other two starts he has allowed 12 runs in 6.2 innings… Another high pick Verbitsky is finding his comfort zone as a closer. He has struck out 25 in just 16.2 innings while only allowing nine baserunners.

AZL Padres 2 – AZL Rangers 8
Prospect Watch Who said Alex Dickerson would be out all year? The outfield prospect that the Padres gave up two of their young players to get has been out most of the year. Early reports had him missing the entire year so it is good to see him back even if it is as a DH to start off. The 3-17 Padres could use all the help they can get .
