Padres Minor League Roundup For August 24th

Single-A: Fort Wayne TinCaps (57-74)

Last night the Fort Wayne TinCaps defeated the Bowling Green Hot Rods 6-3. Top prospect Trea Turner continues his hot hitting since being selected in the 13th overall in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft. Turner owns a triple slash line of .335/.414/.470 on the season between Eugene and Fort Wayne.

Dustin Peterson also joined in on the hit parade going 2-for-4 with a double and RBI on the night.

While 1B Jake Bauers went 1-for-4 with 1 RBI and 2 run scored. Bauers owns a triple slash line of .291/.366/.409 on the season and continues to outperform his competition despite being years younger.

The TinCaps will face Bowling Green for the second of three games tonight as they are having their last home stand of the season, which ends on Friday.

Fort Wayne has already been eliminated from the playoffs, but they have a lot of talented baseball prospects that I will be excited to watch them play at the next level next season and see them continue to add value to the Padres strong minor league system.
