The minor league affiliates for the San Diego Padres went 1-2 today.
Here is a brief recap of today’s action.
Amarillo Sod Poodles Lost 4-1
Despite the return of Jacob Nix, the Sod Poodles offense couldn’t solve the Midland pitching and have their backs against the walls. Nix, in his first start with Amarillo, tossed six innings of two-run ball while striking out six opposing batters. If everything goes well, he could make his return to San Diego for a brief cameo. Edward Olivares hit a solo home run to give Amarillo their lone run while Taylor Trammell hit a ringing triple that nearly cleared the fence.

Luis Campusano went 2-for-4 with two RBIs while Eguy Rosario had three hits and an RBI.
