Double-A: San Antonio Missions

Last night the San Antonio Missions lost to the Corpus Christi Hooks 7-3. While many of the top hitting prospects had hitless nights at the plate, Hunter Renfroe shined in the Missions loss. Renfroe went 3-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI on the season. Despite his great night at the plate, Renfroe has not had the strongest offensive season. He owns a triple slash line of .244/.304/.365 on the season. He will need to drastically improve his average if he hopes to be projected as a starting outfielder and not just a fourth outfield/bench player. Renfroe lack of success could just be that he needs more time to mature as he did own a slash line at Single-A level of .295/.370/.565 in 278 ABs before being promote to the Double-A level.

The Missions will play the rubber game of the series tonight before beginning their last home series of the season. With 8 games left in the season and being 6 games back in the standing it is not likely that the Missions will make the playoffs although they are not statistically eliminated yet. They still have an outside chance of making the playoffs, but will need all hands on deck from Renfroe, Austin Hedges, and Alex Dickerson if they hope to make a push down the stretch.
