Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-5-14 

The Chihuahuas, emulating the big league club, had a flair for the dramatic tonight in their shootout. The Storm continued to play good baseball as they won 7-4.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Tommy Medica/Jake Lemmerman

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Joe Ross


El Paso Chihuahuas 13, Sacramento River Cats 10

Rico Noel – CF: 2-4, Run scored

Brooks Conrad – 2B: 3-5, 2 2B, RBI, 2 Runs scored

Tommy Medica – 1B: 2-4, 2B, HR GS(2), 5RBI, K, Run scored

Cody Decker – DH: 1-3, 2B, RBI, 2BB, K, Run scored

Jeff Francoeur – RF: 2-5, 2B, RBI, Run scored

Adam Moore – C: 4-5, Run scored

Matt Wisler – SP: 3.0 IP, 8H, 6ER, 4BB, 3K, HR Allowed

Notes: After 6 dominant Double-A starts, Matt Wisler was moved up a level to play with the Chihuahuas. While he didn’t fare to well in his initial start in a Chihuahua uniform, the offense more than backed him up. Tommy Medica hit his second home run for the Chihuahuas, a grand slam to give the Chihuahuas an 8-6 lead. It was the first grand slam hit at the Chihuahuas’ new ballpark. Sacramento countered that with a grand slam of their own in the 8th inning to give them a 10-9 lead. Then, in the moment that everyone dreams of: bottom of the 9th, 2-outs, bases loaded, Jake Lemmerman stepped up to the plate and blasted the epic, walk-off grand slam that sent the fans home happy and gave the Chihuahuas a sweep. The 3 grand slams in one game tied the PCL record for most combined grand slams.


San Antonio Missions 3, Corpus Christi Hooks 6

Bridger Hunt – 3B: 0-3, BB

Rymer Liriano – CF: 0-4, K

Austin Hedges –C: 1-4, 2B

Yeison Asencio – RF: 1-4, HR(1), RBI, K, Run scored

Kyle Gaedele – LF: 1-4, HR(4), RBI, 2K, Run scored

Lee Orr – DH: 1-3, HR(3), RBI, 2K, Run scored

John Hussey – SP: 4.0 IP, 6H, 4R, 2ER, BB, 0K (L, 1-1)

Notes: Every member of the bottom 3 of the order went yard for the Missions tonight. For Yeison Asencio it was his first home run in what has been a very trying year. Asencio is hitting .206 over 97 AB’s, but he is hitting .314 over his last 10 games. Austin Hedges is now riding a modest 6 game hitting streak which has raised his average to .242.


Lake Elsinore Storm 7, Lancaster JetHawks 4

Alberth Martinez – CF: 1-4, RBI, BB, Run scored

Benji Gonzales – 2B: 2-3, 2 2B, 2RBI, 2 Runs scored

Chase Headley – DH: 1-3, 2B, 2RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Hunter Renfroe – RF: 1-4, 3B, RBI, K

Luis Tejada – 1B: 1-3, BB, K, Run scored

John Nester – C: 1-3, BB, Run scored

Joe Ross – SP: 6.0 IP, 6H, 4ER, 0BB, 4K (W, 3-2)

Notes: Chase Headley made his first rehab appearance with the Storm tonight. Headley doubled and drove in 2 while playing as the DH. Hunter Renfroe tripled and knocked in his 25th run of the year, which ties him for 4th in the California League. Renfroe is also tied for 3rd in home runs with 6.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 2, Lansing Lugnuts 4

Mallex Smith – CF: 2-4, 3B, Run scored

Dustin Peterson – 3B: 0-3, RBI, 2K

Jake Bauers – 1B: 0-3, 2K

Payton Baskette – SP: 5.1 IP, 8H, 3R, 2ER, 2BB, 2K (L, 0-1)

Notes: The TinCaps offense remains stagnant as they have just 8 hits over their last 2 games. Fernando Perez has hit safely in 9 of his last 10 games; he’s hitting .425 over that span with 2 home runs and 9 RBI. Perez was selected by the Padres in the 3rd round of the 2012 MLB draft, and this is his first year with Fort Wayne. Over his first 113 AB’s he owns a .336/.361/.513 triple slash.
