Daily Farm Round-Up: 6-6-13
7 starters for Fort Wayne recorded a hit as the TinCaps won 5-3. Lake Elsinore collected 10 hits, but they only managed to score 2 runs in their eventual loss. Despite Kalian Sams’ powerful night at the plate and a quality start from Jose De Paula, the Missions were unable to beat the RoughRiders. Cody Decker went yard and Robbie Erlin allowed just 3 hits over 5 innings, but bad defense did Tucson in as they lost 9-3.

Notes: In a game against top pitching prospect Sonny Gray, the T-Pads were unable to muster substantial offense. Gray held the T-Pads to 2 earned runs over 6.2 innings. The T-Pads’ starter, Robbie Erlin, held his own. He only allowed 3 hits over 5 innings, but bad defense led to 2 unearned runs, and the 4 walks he allowed didn’t help him either. John Baker has played in 2 games with Tucson since being sent down and he has failed to record a hit in either game.
