Renfroe, Turner among top performers in Minors Friday

Two of the Padres' top three prospects helped Double-A San Antonio to a 12-2 blowout win against Frisco on Friday night. No. 1 prospect (No. 47 overall) Hunter Renfroe and No. 3 prospect (No. 61 overall) Trea Turner combined to go 7-for-11 with two home runs and seven RBIs as the Missions cruised to their fourth straight win.

Renfroe has been struggling at the plate for much of the year, but Friday he continued a hot streak that began this week. The right fielder went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three RBIs, and is now 7-for-18 with five RBIs over his past four games. The homer was Renfroe's second of the year, and first since April 12.

Turner, meanwhile, is over .300 for the first time since April 23 after his 4-for-6 night that included a homer and four RBIs. The 21-year-old shortstop now boasts a .307/.388/.465 line to go along with three homers and 14 RBIs on the season.

The pair begin a four-game home series against Corpus Christi on Saturday night.
