In 65 games, the 25-year-old has compiled a .388/.470/.761 slash line that leads the Pacific Coast League in all three categories. Gameday box score
Mariners LHP Justus Sheffield, Double-A Arkansas: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R/ER, 1 BB, 9 K -- The ninth-ranked Mariners prospect topped the strong outing he had his last time out, allowing one fewer hit, one fewer walk and striking out an extra batter while still surrendering a lone run over seven frames.

The 23-year-old has not been tagged for a home run during that span dating back to June 18. Sheffield's ERA dropped to 1.64, which would lead the Texas League if he had enough innings to qualify. In opposition, No. 20 Cardinals prospectAngel Rondon allowed one earned run on three hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out four and walked four. Gameday box score

Marlins OF Kameron Misner, Class A Clinton: 3-for-5, HR, 2 RBI, R -- The Marlins took Misner, now ranked as their No. 10 prospect, with the 35th overall pick in June's Draft.

Rays RHP Shane Baz, Class A Bowling Green: 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R/ER, 4 BB, 2 K -- The Rays' sixth-ranked prospect was once again able to limit the damage.

Reds righty Eduardo Salazar tossed six two-hit innings for Dayton, striking out five and walking one. Gameday box score
