The San Diego Affiliates were 2-3 on Tuesday.

Here is a recap of the day’s action:

El Paso Chihuahuas (54-48) Lost 13-1

Starting pitcher Jordan Lyles gave up six earned runs in the first inning alone, and seven total during a rough three inning start. Colin Rea followed up with his best impression of Lyles, allowing six earned runs on twelve hits in 3.1 innings of work. For what it’s worth, the game was played at Colorado Springs — A notoriously friendly hitting environment. Kazuhisa Makita and Jose Castillo pitched the last 1.2 innings without allowing any hits, but the damage was already done. In other news, Francisco Mejia made his organizational debut for the Chihuahuas and had one hit in four at bats with a run scored and a strikeout. His lone base knock was an infield hit on a ground ball to the shortstop. Though it’s unknown whether the pitcher was to be held accountable, or Mejia, there was one stolen base given up while the newly acquired catcher was behind the plate. Shane Peterson knocked in the lone run for El Paso in the top of the sixth inning, and was also the only player in the lineup to have two hits.

Shane Peterson: 2-4, RBI

Francisco Mejia: 1-4, Run

Luis Urias: 0-4, 3 SO

Jordan Lyles: 3 IP, 8 H, 7 ER, 2 BB, 2 K’s

Josh Naylor walked twice despite not recording a hit, while scoring a run. San Antonio was leading 3-1 in the eighth, when lefty reliever Jason Jester allowed two earned runs that tied the game at three apiece. In the bottom of the tenth inning the Missions had the bases loaded and had a walk off walk by Austin Allen to win the game.

Lake Elsinore Storm (51-52) Lost 8-6

It was a particularly tough start for Reggie Lawson, who gave up eight earned runs on twelve hits while only striking out four during his five innings of work. The final three innings were pitched by Cody Tyler for two innings, and David Bednar for the last one, each with a single strikeout in their outings. Ruddy Giron, Rod Boykin, and Allen Cordoba each hit solo home runs in the loss. Edward Olivares had two hits in four at-bats with an RBI, and Ruddy Giron added three hits, a RBI and two runs scored as the top offensive performers. Rod Boykin is a player that deserves recognition, as he had one hit with two RBI. Overall there was just too much offense from Lancaster for the Storm to overcome in the loss.

Ruddy Giron: 3-4, 2 Runs, 2 RBI

Rod Boykin: 1-3, 1 Run, 2 RBI

Tri-City Dust Devils (18-21) Lost 12-6

The struggles of righty Cole Bellinger were clear in his outing on Tuesday, as he allowed three earned runs on five hits with five walks. He pitched 4.1 innings before being relieved by Dan Dallas, who promptly gave up four earned runs of his own in his 1.1 innings of duty. A throwing error by second baseman Olivier Basabe cost the team two runs on the play when the error was committed, and another two runs later in the inning as well. Grant Little had two hits in four at-bats with three runs batted in and a walk, while Tre Carter had a hit, run scored, and two RBI with a walk.
