HI NOTES: Unimpressive Tigers, Impressive Tiger Alums


Missouri gives up 5 runs in ninth, lose 8-3 to San Francisco (The Maneater)
Missouri lost the momentum in the ninth after committing a throwing error and a fielding error, which allowed the Dons to score five runs in an ugly turn of events.

“I picked the ball up, threw it and missed it,” Steele said of his throwing error that later allowed a run to score. “Bad throw on my part. I overshot the left side (because) I didn’t want to throw it right side and kill the runner going down (to first base). But it’s baseball. It happens.”...
Mental mistakes hurt Missouri baseball team against San Francisco (Columbia Missourian)

It appears he will get a call-back.
Maddux called Tepesch a flat-liner, one who doesn’t show a lot of emotion on the mound. That came in handy while wiggling out of the third-inning jam...
Prospect Stites impressing Padres at big league camp (
"Matt's done a nice job," said manager Bud Black. "I think what stands out is a couple things: His talent. His stuff. He's got a good fastball, a good breaking ball, a good change. I like his composure on the mound. He's handled big league camp well. He's shown sort of a calmness to him, yet also an intensity and a competitiveness that we've heard about from our Minor League staff. All the things that our Minor League people have said about him have been validated here, most notably his arm."...
