Prospect Watch: Cody Decker played catcher again making him a viable option if the need arises… Sampson did not have his best start of the year, but considering he walked 12 batters in the last two games, we will take it. His two walks tonight was his lowest total since being promoted three weeks ago.

Prospect Watch: Since being promoted Austin Hedges is hitting .157/.218/.196 with only two doubles. He has gone 2 for his last 20 with no extra-base hits and only a single walk. While his defense is his ticket to the big leagues many had hoped he would have more than a .414 OPS in San Antonio.
Lake Elsinore 5 - Modesto Nuts 3
Key Statistics RHP James Needy 6 IP 2 H, R, 0 ER, BB, 3 Ks (W, 9-5, 3.84 ERA); RF Kyle Gaedale 2-4, 2B, RS, RBI
Prospect Watch: While some pitchers are solid everytime out, others are extreme feast or famine. Needy might be the epitome of the feast of famine pitcher. Over his last 10 starts he has allowed one or fewer earned runs six times, and has given up five or more earned runs three times.

Prospect Watch: Since going 4-8 after his promotion, Hunter Renfroe has struggled going six for his next 34 with 12 strikeouts. Even with the multi-hit game tonight, he is still hitting .176/.243/.278 over his last two weeks.

Prospect Watch: No highlights no prospect watch. Just another miserable loss for a 25-45 Ems.
