Here is a recap of the day’s action.

Colin Rea was roughed up in the contest, as was Chris Huffman (2.2 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 2 BB) in relief. El Paso made two errors in the game and left 15 men on base which was not productive. Franmil Reyes had two of the teams seven hits on the night as he continues where he left off in Texas. Luis Urias continues to struggle with the bat, as his average is down to .264 on the year.

DSL Padres (15-8) Won 8-2

Left handed pitcher Jesus Gonzalez earned the win on Thursday after going five strong innings. The Venezuelan youngster just turned 17 a few weeks ago and is yet another example of how deep the Padres’ farm system is. The team in the DSL is off to a very hot start as the pitching staff, in particular, has been great.
