AAA: Omaha (KC) 7, Oklahoma City 4

Preston Tucker achieved a nice milestone in a losing effort last night; he hit his first AAA homer, a good sign for the left fielder who has struggled in his limited time since being promoted. Robbie Grossman also homered behind four innings of work from Asher Wojciechowski, who's still easing his way back into the rotation.

The Hooks had a nice showing from an offense that's been pretty dormant of late. The team combined for 15 hits and had mult-hit games from the likes of Kemp, DeShields, Aplin and Heras. Tommy Shirley had a nice outing, striking out six while Kyle Smith continued his nice run, striking out six in three innings of work.

Conrad Gregor stole the show among prospects tonight, contributing three hits in a losing effort. He's now hitting an even .400 in 103 A+ at-bats. Brandon Meredith homered and Kyle Westwood took the loss put continues to show strong peripherals that could have him in AA soon.

One guy really worth highlighting from the DSL yesterday is Wilson Amador. The Dominican shortstop had four hits and earned a shoutout from scouting director Kevin Goldstein on Twitter. If you haven't followed the younger international prospects on these DSL teams yet, Franco is another valuable lottery ticket that you can keep an eye on.
