The best performance on yesterday’s four-game slate in the SAL belonged to Greenville (Red Sox) shortstop Oscar Tejeda, who went 3-for-5, drove in two runs and scored another as the Drive outlasted Greensboro (Marlins) 12-6. The 18-year-old raised his line to .250/.290/.325 in 320 at-bats for the year.

Midwest League

Prospect Of The Day

Most of the MWL’s big names had quiet nights but there were still some standout performances, the best of which belonged to Fort Wayne (Padres) righthander Corey Kluber. He tossed eight one-hit shutout innings against Lansing (Blue Jays), fanning 11 and walking just one. It wasn’t enough, however, as Lansing’s staff matched him and the Lugnuts went on to win 1-0 in 10 innings. Kluber, a fourth-rounder from Stetson last year, dropped his ERA to 3.60 in 45 innings while his record stayed put at 2-3.

Prospect Nuggets

Burlington (Royals) center fielder David Lough went 4-for-4 with a home run, a triple and an RBI … Wisconsin (Mariners) righthander Phillippe Aumont allowed only one run over four innings against Kane County (Athletics), although it was an outing that didn’t feature much smooth sailing, as Aumont gave up four hits and three walks along the way. He struck out three … South Bend (Diamondbacks) shortstop Taylor Harbin went 5-for-6 with three doubles and six RBIs against West Michigan (Tigers). The 22-year-old Harbin raised his line to .271/.307/.414.

What To Watch For Today

There’s only one game on the MWL schedule tonight, Fort Wayne at Lansing.
