Daily Farm Round-Up: 8-31-14 

Every team but the Emeralds won tonight, including two wins for Fort Wayne as they swept their double header. Joe Wieland enjoyed his best start with the Chihuahuas while Jeremy Baltz powered the Storm with a home run and 4 RBI’s.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Jeremy Baltz

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Joe Wieland/Colin Rea


El Paso Chihuahuas 4, Salt Lake Bees 1

Jace Peterson – 2B: 2-4, 2B, RBI, K, Run scored

Tyler Greene – SS: 3-4, HR(9), 3RBI, Run scored

Adam Moore – C: 2-3, 2B, K, Run scored

Joe Wieland – SP: 6.1 IP, 6H, 0R, 1BB, 8K (W, 2-1)

Notes: Make it 2 quality starts in a row for Joe Wieland, who has managed to pitch well with El Paso over 4 starts. Wieland, who has missed most of the past 2 years after Tommy John surgery, seems ready to try out the Majors once again. He’ll likely get that opportunity in September. Jace Peterson now has 5 multi-hit games in a row; Peterson is now on an 11 game hitting streak and has raised his average to .302 over 245 AB’s with El Paso.
