Prospect Watch The El Paso offense just keeps on producing as all nine starters reached base safely. The offense was once again led by Austin Hedges, who had two more doubles giving him eight on the season (tied with Almonte for the team lead). On the year he now has a 1.002 OPS!... Rymer Liriano isn’t doing too badly himself, reaching base another three times today and raising his OPS to .843… Frank Garces got into his first game, giving up a run in 1.1 innings while striking out three. Nick Vincent got the win after throwing a scoreless inning (IP, 2 H, K)… Rearick also got into his first game giving up a run in two innings.

Missions 4 – Frisco RoughRiders 7
Prospect Watch Hunter Renfroe thought he had hit a home run in the first only to see it bounce off the wall. He was in his “home run trot” and ended up getting thrown out at second. He was removed from the game an inning later.… Travis Jankowski continues to be the only bright spot in the Missions lineup. He reached base another four times, has a .452 OBP and, with two more stolen bases tonight, has 10 without being caught.
Storm 6 – Inland Empire 66ers 7
Prospect Watch The Storm had a 5-0 lead going into the bottom of sixth, only to fall 7-6. 2B Fernando Perez has hit .162 over the past two weeks. He has just four extra base hits in 18 games… Despite DePaula’s two runs allowed, he had arguably his best start. The runs allowed were after he had left, as Matt Shepherd couldn’t hold the lead. .

Fort Wayne Tin Caps 1 – Dayton Dragons 9
Prospect Watch Another error for Cordero; make that 12 on the year… RF Nick Torres was praised this morning for his offensive prowess. Like a true Padre, he proceeded to go 0-5 with four strikeouts.
