The San Diego Padres affiliates were 3-2 on Sunday.

For the most part, the pitching throughout the system was impressive. Only Tri-City had a very productive offense on the day.

Here’s a recap of the day’s action:

El Paso Chihuahuas (58-48) Won 4-2

Lefty Dillon Overton started with five innings and only allowed two earned runs, and was followed by four relievers who threw the final four shutout innings to close the game. Forrest Allday was the lone hitter in the lineup who had two hits, though the offense produced just enough to win. Diego Goris hit the go-ahead two-run, pinch-hit double that put the Chihuahuas up 4-2 in the top of the sixth inning. The team never looked back, holding on for the victory.

Forrest Allday: 2-3, 1 RBI, 2 BB

Luis Urias: 0-4, 1 BB

Francisco Mejia: 0-3, 1 BB

Diego Goris: 1-1, 2 RBI

Dusty Coleman: 1-4, 1 RBI, 2 Runs

Javier Guerra: 1-3, 1 BB

Dillon Overton: 5 H, 8 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3

San Antonio Missions (63-43) Lost 3-1

Jacob Nix had a decent start for the Missions on Sunday — throwing 7.1 innings while allowing three earned runs on seven hits, with eight strikeouts and no walks. Gerardo Reyes then threw the final 1.2 innings, not allowing a hit with two strikeouts. Kyle Overstreet had the lone RBI in the loss, and had two hits. He and Webster Rivas were the only hitters in the lineup who had a multi-hit game, and Josh Naylor, along with Ty France were the only players who walked in the game. The team only struck out five times during the game, yet simply couldn’t hit well enough to back Nix’s rather lengthy start.

Michael Gettys: 0-4, 3 SO

Kyle Overstreet: 2-4, 1 RBI

Webster Rivas: 2-4

Peter Van Gansen: 1-3

Jacob Nix: 7.1 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 8 K’s

Lake Elsinore Storm  (53-55) Won 3-0

Adrian Morejon started the game with four shutout innings, only allowing one hit with two walks and three strikeouts. Pedro Avila then came on and threw five shutout innings to finish the game and secure the shutout win against Stockton. Leadoff hitter Nate Easley had a hit with an RBI, while Chris Baker and A.J. Kennedy each knocked in a run with two hits. Allen Córdoba also had a two-hit game in the win. Hudson Potts had two hits with a walk, and extended his hitting streak to fifteen games!

Fort Wayne TinCaps (48-56) Lost 4-0

It was a rough day for the TinCaps’ offense as they were shutout by Bowling Green. Aaron Leasher started and threw a solid 6.2 innings, allowing three earned runs on seven hits. Not one TinCap had a multi-hit game, and the team struck out nine times throughout the game. The pitching was decent, but the offense simply couldn’t muster anything. Only Jeisson Rosario, Gabriel Arias, Jalen Washington, and Juan Fernandez recorded a hit each for the team.
