MadFriars' Preview: '13 San Antonio Missions

MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: July 27

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.
