Fresno Loses to Gallo 3-Run Shot

Prospect fans are familiar with Joey Gallo. Heck, most fans know who Joey Gallo is considering how much Rangers fans slobber over him. Why do I bring this up? To add salt to the wound. He hit a 3-run shot off Tommy Shirley and that was all the runs in the game. This doesn't help much with the "Move Shirley to the pen" squad.

Hooks Fall 7-6 in 10th Inning

Much is made over Derek Fisher's breakout season this year, and it should be. He was under-rated from the beginning due to some collegiate injuries. But, J.D. Davis has a very good season as well. He hit his 15th home run of the season last night. He's walking about the same as he did last season in Lancaster but the impressive part is that he's lowered his strikeout rate from 28.4% to 24.8% despite going up a level. Yes, the ISO has lowered to account for the Lancaster effect but a .191 ISO ain't bad either.

Ferguson Hits Walk-Off 2-Run Homer in 11th

Drew Ferguson has played somewhat of the part of a second lead-off at times by batting 9th. It's not because he doesn't get on-base since he does at a .381 clip. But, last night he also played the part of hero. He hit two-home runs and got on base five times. He scored twice and drove in four of the teams nine runs.

QC's Offense Explodes in 12-4 Win

Low-A just doesn't appear to be a challenge for Myles Straw anymore. His season average is up to .346 and has hit .404 over the last 10 games. That's in 50 games so it's not SSS. Plus he carries an 11% walk-rate and 17% strikeout rate. There's not much power but, he gets on base. This was also Randy Cesar's Low-A debut after hitting his way out of Tri-City.

Oh, and Matt Bower's strikeout rate in Low-A continues to grow.

TC Falls 6-5

I want to say that Ronnie Dawson is heating up, but it's tough to really say that. Over the last ten games he has four home runs and a 11/7 BB/SO ratio. So, that looks great. Last night he had three walks and went 1-1 with a double. But, he's only hitting .194 in the last 10 games. So, everything peripherally looks great, but the hits aren't really coming for him.

However, that 9th round Div. II senior sign is working out really well. The lefty Ryan Hartman that can go into the low-90's has 22 strikeouts in 19 1/3 innings with just three walks.
