Home is Where the Heart Is: The Missions have won seven games in a row at Wolff Stadium to match a season-long home winning streak. They also won seven home games in a row from May 9-20. They sport a 27-10 home record, which is the second-best home record among all full-season MiLB teams behind only Advanced-A Visalia's 29-8 home record.

They've Got The Runs: After scoring 10 or more runs just twice in their first 66 games the Missions have now done so in four of their last 12 games. The Missions have scored 153 runs in June, which is sixth in the league.

Play the Hits: San Antonio has collected 10 or more hits in eight of their last 12 games and are 20-7 when doing so this season. Last night Mauricio Dubon, Keston Hiura, Cory Spangenberg, and David Freitas all had three hits. It was the first time this season as many as four different Missions tallied three hits in a game.

Cleaning Up: San Antonio's clean up hitter, Cory Spangenberg has been on a tear as of late as he recorded his fifth multi-hit game in his last six games overall with a trio of hits last night. In the last seven days Spangenberg is among the league leaders in average (4th, .556), OBP (4th, .613), and hits (T-4th, 15).

Congrats to a baseball lifer. Rick Sweet made his pro debut as a member of the 1975 Walla Walla Padres. His first managerial post was with the 1987 Bellingham Mariners.
