The Missions were the only farm team able to record a victory today. Offense was scarce all around the farm; the T-Pads and the Emeralds were shutout and the Missions and the Storm both scored 4 runs. The TinCaps were the lone team to provide any substantial offense, but unfortunately their pitching let them down as they lost 10-9.
Hitting Player of the Day: Luis Domoromo

So, despite the teams not performing, fortunately there are some interesting individual performances that are noteworthy. Some expected, others not. DSL...

It's kind of nice to be playing exciting baseball, even if it is on the road. It's a way to tell the rest of the league that yes we do have some talent. This season is all but over, so we are getting a preview of 2013. And if this is what 2013...
