Hitting Prospect of the Day: Brooks Conrad/Hunter Renfroe
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Jeff Francoeur
El Paso Chihuahuas 9, Albuquerque Isotopes 21

Jeff Francoeur – RP: 1.0 IP, 0H, 0BB, 0R, 1K
Notes: Well, it was a night to forget for Ruben Mejia. In his first Triple-A performance of his career he was absolutely shelled – he now owns a 189.00 ERA at the Triple-A level. Ironically, the best pitching performance from the Chihuahuas was from Jeff Francoeur who tossed a perfect inning. Perhaps even more ironically, it was Francoeur’s 2nd perfect inning of the year. Cameron Maybin had his best performance as a Chihuahua as he had 3-hits, including a home run.
