Right-hander Matt Wisler, the Padres' No. 3 prospect and No. 75 overall, struck out a career-high 10 batters in seven scoreless innings Friday. But Double-A San Antonio couldn't scratch out any runs and lost to Midland, 2-0, in 11 innings.
Wisler needed just 94 pitches to go seven innings, matching the longest start of his career. He allowed three hits and walked none.
Wisler has flown through the Minor Leagues since the Padres selected him in the seventh round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft. At 21 years old, he was the seventh-youngest player in the Texas League on Opening Day.
His youth has hardly been apparent this season. Through five starts and 25 innings this season, Wisler has a 2.16 ERA and a 30-to-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
