In Tucson Jedd Gyorko continues to produce and Nate Freiman is nothing but steady in San Antonio. Tommy Medica is opening some eyes for the Storm and Kyle Gaedele is starting to show some of the tools that got him drafted. In short-season ball some late round draft picks are opening some eyes.

You never know what you'll see when you go to a baseball game. Tucson found a new and creative way to lose and San Antonio lost on a walk-off homer, while Ft. Wayne took advantage of a pair of late errors to reverse their fortune. Opting against late drama, Elsinore and Eugene put up big innings early and rolled to victory.

Not a pleasant night as five of the Padres' affiliates go down. The sixth, the AZL Padres, had the night off. Still some good performances in Lake Elsinore at the plate as former top 2009 draft pick Everett Williams continues his hot streak and the organization may have found a diamond in the rough from Utah State College in the twenty-seventh round of the 2012 draft.

Despite how well Mat Latos has been pitching with the Reds the off-season trade may go down as one of San Diego's best if both 1B Yonder Alonso and C Yasmani Grandal stick as regulars to go along with pitchers Edison Volquez and Brad Boxberger. Elsewhere in the system another big month for Tommy Medica in Lake Elsinore and who is Yeison Asencio?

Tucson was blanked, but at least this time it was by one of the best in the game. San Antonio doesn't have the same excuse as they stumble again. Elsinore moves back into first place on the backs of Everett Williams and Donn Roach, while Colin Rea works six shutout innings for the TinCaps.
