Key Statistics: RHP Juan Oramas 7 IP, 10 H, 2 ER, 3 Ks; RF Rymer Liriano 3-5, 2B, 3B, 3 RS, 2 RBI, BB, 2 SB (20); LF Jake Goebbert 1-2, 2B, 4 BB, 4 RS; 1B Cody Decker 3-5, HR (18), 3 RBI; DH Jonathan Galvez 4-6, 2B, RS, 2 RBI.
Prospect Watch Jake Goebbert now has more walks with El Paso (31) than strikeouts (30)… Rymer Liriano had his eighth multi-hit game in his last 11… In the eighth inning Jace Peterson grounded out, and then was replaced in the bottom of the inning by Jason Lane (who went to first with Decker going to third). No word on if it is injury related.

Prospect Watch Joe Ross was lifted after just one inning, although he did strike out the final batter he faced… C Austin Hedges may have gone just 1-4, with three strikeouts but he also was perfect on the night in throwing out baserunners… Jankowski’s last extra-base hit in AA came on April 14th.
Storm 1 – High Desert Mavericks 2
Prospect Watch It is hard to win games when the offense is 2-12 with RISP. Since joining the Storm Elliot Morris has gone 2-2 with just a 2.16 ERA. 25 IP, 14 H, 5 BB, 15 Ks. Considering how hitter friendly the Cal League is, those numbers are normally those a Cal League All-Star Game starter… Dane Phillips might still be a work in progress behind the plate but wow, he can hit. A catcher who is hitting .308/.374/.533, has to be considered a prospect.

Ems 2 – Hillsboro Hops 5
Prospect Watch Oh Walker Weickel so much talent, so little results. The big question is when will it start to click?... Franchy Cordero played another game at shortstop without an error!
