Prospect Watch:The Chihuahuas got two runs in the top of the tenth and held on in the bottom of the inning after allowing a run to win in a rare Las Vegas game that didn’t see a lot of offense...It was Wisler’s fifth strong start in his last six outings. Don’t look for Wisler, 21, to be moved up to San Diego in September simply because the Padres’ don’t have to put him on the forty-man roster and are going to want to save a roster spot in the off-season...On the other hand 1B/OF Jake Goebbert might be back. He is at .304/.412/.493...RHP Jerry Sullivan got the the save. Sullivan, a third round draft pick in 2009, has had a solid season in El Paso with a 3.22 ER and a 26/5 K/BB ratio in 22.1 innings.

Lancaster Jethawks 6 - Storm 2
Prospect Watch:The JetHawks scored five runs in the first three innings as the visiting Storm lost their third straight game...Travis Jankowski had a big night in his first night back in High-A after spending time in Eugene and AZL as part of his rehab from a gruesome wrist injury in late April which kept him out until mid-July...Alberth Martiniez has been up and down all year. He hit .306 in April and .343 in July but .212 in May and .266 in June. Still he 36 extra-base hits and by the end of year could put up some decent numbers.
