Hitting Prospect of the Day: Cory Spangenberg
Pitching Prospect of the Day: Matt Wisler
Tucson Padres 7, Sacramento River Cats 6
Reymond Fuentes-CF: 1-3, 2BB, 2K, 2 Runs scored
Dan Robertson-RF: 2-4, RBI, BB, Run scored
Dean Anna-2B: 1-4, RBI, BB, Run scored
Jonathan Galvez-LF: 2-5, 2RBI, K
Brandon Allen-DH: 1-3, HR(14), 2RBI, Run scored
Scott Moore-3B: 3-4, 2B, 2 Runs scored
Keyvius Sampson-SP: 4.0 IP, 4H, 4R, 3ER, 6BB, K
Notes: Impressively, every member of the starting T-Pads lineup had a hit for the 3rd night in a row. Following this game, Reymond Fuentes is hitting .400 over 11 games with the T-Pads. Unfortunately, Keyvius Sampson walked 6 batters for the second start in a row. Sampson’s first start with the T-Pads after being called up was impressive, but the two starts since have been very disappointing.
San Antonio Missions 3, Frisco RoughRiders 1
Rico Noel-CF: 0-3, BB
Cory Spangenberg-2B: 2-4, 2B, HR(2), RBI, K, 2 Runs scored
Tommy Medica-DH: 1-3, RBI, BB, K, Run scored
Jake Blackwood-3B: 1-4, RBI
Yeison Asencio-RF: 0-3, BB
Austin Hedges-C: 0-3, BB
Matt Wisler-SP: 5.0 IP, H, 0R, 0BB, 6K
Notes: Matt Wisler had an outstanding start. Not only did he through 5 scoreless innings with 6 strikeouts, but he did it while throwing just 53 pitches. Wisler has allowed 1 run or less in each of his last 5 starts. Over his last 10 starts he is 5-1 with a 1.67 ERA. Cory Spangenberg had one of his best nights as a Mission. Spangenberg has a miniscule .345 slugging percentage with the Missions. Hopefully his 2 extra-base hits in this game are a sign off things to come.
