Hitting Prospect of the Day: Reymond Fuentes

Pitching Player of the Day: Burch Smith


Tucson Padres 6, Tacoma Rainiers 4

Reymond Fuentes-CF: 2-5, RBI, K, Run scored

Dan Robertson-RF: 1-4, Run scored

Brandon Allen-1B: 1-3, 2RBI, BB, Run scored

Mike Wilson-RF: 1-3, RBI, BB, K, run scored

Scott Moore-3B: 1-4, 2B, K

Cody Decker-DH: 1-4, 2B, 2K, Run scored

Burch Smith-SP: 5.0 IP, 2H, 2ER, BB, 5K, HR Allowed

Notes: Burch Smith turned in another solid start with the T-Pads. It’s quite possible that Smith will see some time in the big leagues soon in light of Edinson Volquez’s departure from the team. Based on Smith’s play with the T-Pads, he deserves it; he’s 5-1 with a 3.83 ERA and 55 K’s over 54 innings pitched. Reymond Fuentes has now hit safely in all 13 games he’s played with Tucson. To show how well Fuentes has been playing, his 2-5 performance tonight actually lowered his average to .418.


San Antonio Missions 10, Corpus Christi Hooks 2

Rico Noel-CF: 2-4, BB, 2 Runs scored

Cory Spangenberg-2B: 1-4, Run scored

Tommy Medica-DH: 2-5, 2B, 2RBI, K, Run scored

Johan Limonta-1B: 1-5, 2B, RBI, 4K, 2 Runs scored

Lee Orr-RF: 2-3, 2B, 2RBI, BB, 2 Runs scored

Jeudy Valdez-3-4, 3 2B, 2RBI, Run scored

Eddie Bonine-SP: 6.0 IP, 9H, 2ER, BB, K, HR Allowed (W, 4-3)

Leonel Campos-RP: 1.0 IP, H, 0R, 2K

Notes: Eddie Bonine has gone at least 6 innings in 7 of his last 8 starts. Strikeouts are not a big part of Bonine’s game as he has just 26 strikeouts over 93.2 innings pitched this year, but he’s been effective over 10 starts with the Missions. Reliever Leonel Campos lowered his ERA to 0.67 over 26.2 innings with a scoreless inning tonight. Campos has 20 strikeouts over his last 11 innings pitched.


Lake Elsinore Storm 4, Modesto Nuts 5

Ronnie Richardson-LF: 1-4, K

Bridger Hunt-SS: 2-4, HR(1), 2RBI, Run scored

A.J. Kirby-Jones-1B: 1-3, HR(7), RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Jeremy Baltz-DH: 0-3, BB, K

Kyle Gaedele-CF: 1-4, HR(11), RBI, 2K, Run scored

Corey Adamson-RF: 1-4, 2K, Run scored

Frank Garces-SP: 4.2 IP, 7H, 5ER, 4BB, 4K (L, 7-9)

Notes: Despite hitting 3 home runs in the game, the Storm lost 5-4. Frank Garces struggled yet again with Lake Elsinore. Over 25 starts and 117.2 innings pitched, Garces owns a 5.28 ERA. The only silver lining to his season is his high strikeout rate; he has 125 strikeouts on the year.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 0, Bowling Green Hot-Rods 7

Mallex Smith-CF: 0-2, 3BB, K

Reynaldo Bruguera-2B: 2-4

Hunter Renfroe-RF: 1-4, 2B, 3K

Gabriel Quintana-3B: 1-3, BB

Luis Tejada-1B: 0-4, 2K

Rodney Daal-C: 0-3, BB

Zach Eflin-SP: 5.0 IP, 7H, 5R, 2ER, BB, 3K, HR Allowed

Notes: The TinCaps did Zach Eflin absolutely no favors for him tonight. Not only were the TinCaps shutout, but they also committed 2 errors behind Eflin that resulted in 3 unearned runs scoring. Hunter Renfroe has shown some good extra base pop with Fort Wayne; 5 of his 8 hits with Fort Wayne have gone for extra bases.


Eugene Emeralds 0, Salem-Keizer Volcanoes 3

Henry Charles-CF: 0-4, K

Malquiel Brito-LF: 0-4, K

Donavan Tate-RF: 0-3, 2K

Fernando Perez-3B: 1-3, K

Edwin Moreno-DH: 1-3, 2B, K

Michael Bass-2B: 0-3, K

Coby Cowgill-SP: 4.2 IP, 7H, 3ER, 3BB, 7K (L, 2-2)

Notes: It’s getting really hard to write about this team. For the 5th game in a row the Emeralds lost, and for the 5th game in a row the Emeralds failed to score more than 2 runs. However, the offense hit a new low tonight by recording just 2 hits all game. The only possible bright spot in this game was starting pitcher Coby Cowgill striking out 7 batters over 4.2 innings pitched. Unfortunately, he also allowed 3 runs on 7 hits during that time.
