The book on Cory Spangenberg when the Padres took him with the tenth overall pick in the 2011 draft was that he had one of the more advanced bats in his class.
It was a horrible night offensively for every team besides Cory Spangenberg and the Storm. Spangenberg collected 5 hits, and McElroy and Miller both went yard as the Storm won 6-3. The rest of the affiliates combined for 6 runs and 21 hits over 5 games.Hitting Prospect of the Day: Cory Spangenberg Pitching Prospect of the Day: Matt Branham/Kevin QuackenbushGame 1: Tucson Padres 0...
Cory Spangenberg hit his 1st HR of the year, and Rymer Liriano had 4 hits... and yet the Storm still managed to lose. Not the best day to be a pitcher in the Padres' system
Although the system lost three out of their four games last night there was some good news. In Lake Elsinore 2B Cory Spangenberg is coming out of his early season slump and two strong pitching performances by San Antonio's Keyvius Sampson and Fort Waynes's Joe Ross give some reasons for hope.
