The San Diego Padres affiliates were 3-0 on Wednesday.

With three teams in action, here is a quick rundown on the day for the minor leaguers.

Fort Wayne TinCaps (4-9) Won 7-2

The TinCaps have won two in a row as Nick Margevicius and Aaron Leasher have gotten the team back on track in the Midwest League. The team got excellent nights at the plate from Campusano, Lopez, and Arias. Henry pitched a scoreless inning, lowering his ERA to 19.29 on the year. Ben Sheckler wrapped up the game for Fort Wayne, throwing two innings and allowing two earned runs to score. Leasher was effective on the day and could be a pitcher to monitor this 2018 season.

Aaron Leasher– 6 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 7 K

Luis Campusano– (2-4) 3 RBI, Run

Justin Lopez– (2-4) 1 RBI

Gabriel Arias– (1-4) 2 Runs, RBI, BB

Lake Elsinore Storm (6-8) Won 6-5

The Storm walked it off in 10 off the bat of Nate Easley, who entered the game for Wil Myers late in the contest. The Storm got another great effort from Reggie Lawson, as the right-handed pitcher went five strong innings. Austin Smith was roughed up a bit, allowing four earned runs in 1.2 innings of relief. Gerardo Reyes earned a blown save on an unearned run in his inning of relief. David Bednar got the final six outs and earned a victory on the night for Lake Elsinore.

Reggie Lawson– 5 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K (88 pitches-58 strikes)

Austin Smith– 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K (38 pitches-20 strikes)

San Antonio Missions (7-5) OFF

The Missions were off on Wednesday, but will begin a series in Midland on Thursday as Logan Allen (1-1) 5.91 ERA takes the mound for San Antonio.

El Paso Chihuahuas (9-5) WON 3-2

The Chihuahuas staff continues to pitch well as Chris Huffman went seven strong innings against Reno. Brett Nicholas continues to hit as he is batting .375 on the year and is now hitting in the three-hole. The first baseman was acquired early this month from the Texas Rangers. The catcher/first baseman is 29 and not a prospect, but he does provide depth for the team. Franmil Reyes had an RBI triple and Stephen McGee went 2-4 in the victory. Trey Wingenter pitched the 8th, recording two hits and one earned run in his 14-pitch effort.

Chris Huffman– (Win) 7 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K (86 piches-54 strikes)

Brett Nicholas– (2-4) 2b, Run

Stephen McGee– (2-4) 2b, Run, RBI

Franmil Reyes– (1-4) 3b, RBI

Jonathan Aro– (Save) 1 IP, 1 BB, K
