MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: September 5th

Eflin and Daal lead the TinCaps to a sweep while "the knuckler" Eddie Bonine leads the Missions back to even in their series.

San Antonio Missions 2 – Corpus Christi Hooks 0

Key Statistics RHP Eddie Bonine 7 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 Ks; CF Rico Noel 3-5 OA; RF Yeison Asencio 3-4, 2 2B, RBI.

Prospect Watch: The Texas League semi-final match is all tied after the Missions' victory tonight. Knuckelballer Eddie Bonine had the Hooks baffled over seven innings. He got 11 groundouts throughout the game most of which were weakly hit as the Hooks' batters were continually swinging over the top of the knuckler…CF Rico Noel is picking a great time to show his "A Game." After being the lone offensive highlight yesterday, Noel continued the onslaught with three more hits today. Even more important was his throw that nailed a runner at the plate to end the seventh inning in a tight contest.

Fort Wayne TinCaps 9 – Bowling Green Hot Rods 5

Key Statistics RHP Zach Eflin 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, BB, 5 K; RF Hunter Renfoe 1-3, 2B, RS, RBI, BB; C Rodney Daal 2-4, 2B, HR, 2 RBI.

Prospect Watch: The game was never in doubt. Fort Wayne scored nine consecutive runs between the second and the fifth to put the game away. Zach Eflin lead the charge on the mound, while his battery mate led the offensive explosion. Both Eflin and Daal will be hard to leave off the Top 20 prospect list.

For further reading on the TinCaps' please see the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette.

Tomorrow: Tin Caps won their first series and have a few days off before Max Fried toes the rubber. Mission's tied their best of five series at one and will look to the Donn to give them the edge.
