The minor league affiliates for the San Diego Padres went 2-2 on Tuesday.
Here’s a recap of today’s action.
El Paso Chihuahuas (28-31) Lost 6-5
El Paso kicked off a three-game series with the Omaha Storm Chasers after getting a day off yesterday. Their offense got off to a fast start, scoring four runs in the first inning. It wasn’t enough as Miguel Diaz was shaky in his three-innings of relief, allowing two home runs. Diaz piggybacked starter Luis Perdomo, who now owns a 2.89 ERA after seven starts in Triple-A. Carlos Asuaje had a hit in three at bats, with a walk and a run scored.

San Antonio Missions (36-21) Won 5-4
The Missions took game one of a four-game series against the Midland RockHounds. The offense was backed by Michael Gettys 10th home run on the season, his fourth in the past five days, and five batters notching at least two hits. They scored in the first on an Austin Allen sac fly. Ty France drove Fernando Tatis Jr. in twice and would have had three RBI if Josh Naylor wasn’t throw out trying to score. While the bullpen was shaky, allowing all four runs to score in their four innings of work, Brad Wieck pitched a clean 9th to earn the save.

Brad Zunica drove in Luis Torrens with a 2-run home run in the top of the second, his seventh home run on the season. Edward Olivares drove in three runs with an RBI single in the third and a two-run single in the seventh. Buddy Reed had a two-run single of his own in the seventh.

Fort Wayne Tincaps (26-30) Lost 7-8
The TinCaps played extra innings in the first game of a three-game series with the South Bend Cubs. It was a seemingly a sloppy game as there were 6 errors split between the teams. Fort Wayne must have felt good about their chances to win when they scored two runs in the top of the 10th. Jack Suwinski scored on a throwing error and Luis Campusano had an RBI single later in the inning. Travis Radke then allowed two runs on two errors and single in the bottom of the frame. Gabriel Arias started the 11th inning on 2nd base and scored on a throwing error by the pitcher, after a Jalen Washington bunt.
