No game for the T-Pads
San Antonio Missions 3 – Arkansas Travelers 1
Key Statistics RHP Eddie Bonine 7.2 IP, 3 H, ER, BB, 0 K; CF Rico Noel 2-3, RS; DH Everett Williams 2-2, BB, SB (10).
Prospect Watch: C/1B Robert Kral played in his first game in two weeks for the Missions. He was at first base and and went 0-3, with a walk. The 24 year old hasn’t had the same success yet in AA as he did in High A, but its hard to judge a player when he has appeared in eight games in the past month. Kral’s 14 home runs this season still rank in the top five in the system.
