The El Paso Chihuahuas were the only San Diego minor league affiliate to play today. The other teams enjoyed their usual Monday off.

Here is a quick recap of the action.

 

El Paso Chihuahuas (16-18 on the season) (Won 4-3 against Dodgers)

Luis Campusano: 2-for-5, 2B, 2 RBI, K

Tucupita Marcano: 3-for-5, 2 R

Nick Tanielu: 2-for-5, R, RBI

Brian O’Grady: 2-f0r-4, 2B

Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 7 H, ER, BB, 4 K, (Win), 2-for-2, R

The decision to keep Luis Campusano down in the minors to get consistent at-bats has been paying off for El Paso.

Over his past four starts, Campusano has gone 6-for-18 with two extra-base hits and three RBIs. His third-inning RBI double capped off a three-run rally for El Paso. A single in the seventh inning pushed the Chihuahuas’ lead to three, which was instrumental in El Paso securing the win over Oklahoma City.

Daniel Camarena was impressive in the five innings he pitched, throwing 70% of his pitches for strikes and only allowing a single run by a sacrifice fly.

El Paso hitters were 4-for-14 with runners in scoring position while Oklahoma City hitters went 1-for-10 in similar situations.

San Antonio Missions (20-16 on the season)

The Missions were off today after winning five out of six games in a series against the Midland Rockhounds. San Antonio will begin a six-game series with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (13-18 on the season)

After back-to-back series at home, Fort Wayne will begin a twelve-game road trip on June 15. Their first series will be against the Dayton Dragons.

Lake Elsinore Storm (15-17 on the season)

Lake Elsinore will be back on the road after six games at home against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. They are set for a six-game series against the Inland Empire 66ers on June 15.
