With the DSL Padres season over and the TinCaps and AZL Padres teams on a break, the Padres affiliates were on 3-2 Tuesday night.
The Chihuahuas put up 13 runs, as six hitters recorded at least two hits on the night in the 13-10 victory. Catcher Tony Cruz hit two solo homers and Hunter Renfroe, Christian Vilanueva, and Franchy Cordero each had three hits for El Paso. Chase d’Arnuad and Diego Goris had good nights for the Chihuahuas as well, earning two hits each. Christian Bethancourt threw 1.1 innings for the team and lowered his ERA to 8.10 on the season.
The Missions won an exciting game 10-8, as Fernando Tatis came up big for the team with a run scoring single in the eighth. It was his only hit on the night as Tatis was 1-6 with three K’s and continues to struggle, hitting .161 in his first taste of Double-A pitching. Franmil Reyes, the mammoth Dominican outfielder, continues his hot streak as he slugged two home runs and now has 25 on the season, which leads all of the Padres’ minor leaguers.
The tough season for the Lake Elsinore Storm continues as they lost 4-2. Jesse Scholtens started and went five inings, allowing three runs on nine hits. Ruddy Giron recorded two hits on the night. Michael Gettys continues to struggle as he went 1-5 with three K’s for Lake Elsinore. 15 Storm batters struck out on the night as the team was not able to do much offensively.
Tri-City continues their hot play, as the team won 5-2 on Tuesday night. Will Stillman started the game and went five innings for the team, allowing two earned runs on six hits. Chris Mattison and Tre Carter were the hitting stars for the Padres’ short season team. Elliot Ashbeck threw two scoreless innings of relief for the team, striking out three batters.
The AZL Padres 2 team lost a close game 4-3, as seven different pitchers threw for the team. Matt Magill started it out and went two scoreless innings, striking out five batters. Brad Wieck followed him up as the left-handed pitcher is in Arizona after pitching most of the year for El Paso and San Antonio. Duilio Ochoa was hung with the loss as the right-handed pitcher went three innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. Oliver Basabe, Tirso Ornelas, Blake Hunt, and Justin Paulsen all recorded two hits apiece in the loss.
