Tyler Naquin doubled in his fourth consecutive game, but Mahoning Valley could not hold off the Staten Island Yankees.
2012 13th round pick, Tyler Booth, hit two HRs (#2, #3) and Dorssys Paulino went 4-5, but the Goodyear Tribe couldn't produce enough offense to win. Paulino's effort was spotlighted by Ben Badler, writing for Baseball America, who noted:
Paulino may eventually end up at either third base or second base, but his calling card is his bat, and it has his prospect stock soaring right now.
