MadFriars Daily Farm Report: July 7

Thursday was a rough day in the Padres’ system as most of the clubs ended up in the loss column. El Paso went down on the road, Fort Wayne went down at home and the Storm blew a big lead on the road, losing in Stockton. San Antonio and Tri-City found the win column while the AZL Padres wilted in the heat of Mesa.
