Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Saturday, August 5th 2017. Let’s get to it.

****Today’s Minor League Scoreboard

****Today’s MLB scoreboard

****Yesterday’s Highlights can be found in the Friday discussion thread.

****Analysis of all the deadline trades involving prospects can be found here.

COOL STUFF THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY:

* The Rome Braves walked off in extras for the second day in a row, extending their win streak to nine. The red-hot Joey Wentz looks to get the R-Braves to 10-straight at 6 pm ET.

* Jose Siri’s 39-game hit streak came to an end, in a not-so-conventional way. Our Ricky Keeler took a look at him when the streak was at 24.

* Stefan Trosclair picked up a cycle for Peoria, having just one hit through seven innings. It was a 9-inning game. How’d he do it?

* That Eloy Jimenez was at it again, with his fifth homer in 20 games since being traded.
