Prospect Watch: Remember when some people were claiming that Michael Nix should be the fifth starter with the Padres instead of Jesse Hahn or Donn Roach? Well since then Nix has been torched. If Burch Smith, Casey Kelly, or Joe Wieland were healthy Nix might not be the best option for El Paso.

Prospect Watch: In a game played at Minute Maid Field in Houston, the AA players made the ballpark even smaller than it already is. The teams combined for 29 runs on 32 hits. The fifth inning alone saw 12 runs scored and lasted nearly 80 minutes. Every member of the Missions had at least one hit and scored at least one run. Even PH Cody Overbeck had a single and scored a run in his only at bat.
The Storm had the day off.

TinCaps 4 – Lansing Lugnuts 7
Prospect Watch: Another day another hit for Jake Bauers. Bauers extended his MidWest League longest hitting streak to 16 games. The great thing is during the hitting streak, and during the entire season Bauers has shown an advanced eye for hitting. Not only is he hitting over .400 during the stretch with a slugging percentage north of .600, but he is one of the few batters in the MWL that has more walks than strikeouts over the last month. Even for the season he has a 20 BB/22 K ratio. Great job for any player let alone the youngest in the league.
