Rebecca Lynn/San Antonio Missions

MadFriars San Diego Padres Daily Prospect Report: April 30

Despite a few big nights for Alex Dickerson and Taylor Lindsey, only the Storm won on Friday night.

Fresno Grizzlies 3 - Chihuahuas 0

Key Statistics: LF Alex Dickerson 2-for-3, BB; 1B James Loney 2-for-3, 2B; RHP Jeremy Guthrie 7IP, 8H, 3ER, 3K, 1BB

Prospect Watch: While Jeremy Guthrie turned in his best performance of the season, it wasn't enough as the Chihuahuas' offense went silent Sunday. The long-time big leaguer yielded three runs over seven innings, dropping his ERA back into single digits. ... Alex Dickerson, who has worked exclusively in left field and designated hitter so far, extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a pair of singles. He now leads the club in average and on-base percentage, and sits right behind Hunter Renfroe with a .576 slugging mark. ... After starting slowly, James Loney has five multi-hit games in his last 10, pushing his average up to .314. With Wil Myers producing as well as he is at the big league level, it's shifted from unlikely to improbable that Loney will see any time in the Majors for the Padres barring a major injury.

Midland RockHounds 4 - Missions 3

Key Statistics: 2B Taylor Lindsey 4-for-5, 2B, R; LF Nick Torres 1-for-3, RBI; RHP Bryce Morrow 5IP, 9H, 4R, 1K, 4BB

Prospect Watch: Things started off well for the Missions as Taylor Lindsey opened the game with a double, advanced on a groundout and came around to score on a Mike Olt sacrifice fly, but the club allowed a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame and never led again on the night. The team has now lost six straight, the Missions' longest streak since 2014. ... Lindsey's resurgence continues to be one of the positive storylines in San Antonio. The 24-year-old second baseman had a season-high four hits, including the one extra-base hit, pushing his average up to.322. He now paces the club in virtually every offensive category. ... After a second rough start for Bryce MorrowEric Yardley and Kyle Lloyd teamed to work three scoreless frames out of the bullpen. While Yardley continues to yield plenty of hits, the sidewinding righty has a 1.69 ERA between the Missions and Chihuahuas bullpens this year, and continues to rack up groundouts at a stellar pace.

Storm 3 - Lancaster JetHawks 2

Key Statistics: 3B Josh VanMeter 2-for-3, 2B, R, E (4); DH River Stevens 3-for-3, 2B; RF Luis Tejada 1-for-4, HR (1); LHP Thomas Dorminy 6IP, 7H 2R (1ER), 7K, 1BB

Prospect Watch: Starter Thomas Dorminy turned in by far his best start of the year, yielding only one earned run over six frames, and keeping the JetHawks in check until the Storm offense finally got things going late in the game. Dorminy, a 23-year-old Floridian, had not made it past four innings in his first four Storm appearances, but his Saturday night showing looked a lot more like what he contributed to the TinCaps in 2015. ... The hits continue to come in bunches for infielder River Stevens, who went 3-for-3 Saturday. The 24-year-old, who had a strong showing in the Australian League this winter, has an odd line of .270/.292/.524 across two levels early on the year. He's already hit three homers this season, tripling the output in his first three active professional seasons. ... Luis Tejada made his second hit since getting promoted from Fort Wayne count, as he clubbed a two-run homer with two outs in the sixth to get the Storm on the board. The 23-year-old lefty, playing right field for the Storm, is 2-for-14 in the early going. ...  T.J. Weir and Colby Blueberg continued the Storm bullpen's dominant season, tossing three scoreless frames with five strikeouts and only one hit allowed.
