Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-22-13
The T-Pads’ offense was relentless as they scored in 5 different innings and ended up scoring just enough to win. Jeudy Valdez’s perfect night at the plate coupled with Keyvius Sampson’s solid start drove San Antonio to victory. Max Fried pitched well for Fort Wayne, yet two home runs off of him were all Silver Hawks needed to put away the TinCaps 4-2. Lake Elsinore had the day off.
