The San Diego Padres affiliates were 2-2 on Wednesday, May 2.
Here is a look at the day’s/night’s action:
El Paso Chihuahuas (17-10) Lost 4-3
Franmil Reyes rocketed two balls over the right field fence for El Paso, but that was not enough for the Chihuahuas as they lost 4-3 to the Aces. Walker Locket got the start and was pretty effective, allowing four earned runs in five innings. Reno’ pitcher Taylor Clarke pitched well despite allowing the two dingers to Reyes. Franmil has legit power the other way as he has no problem letting the ball travel deep into his zone. I am very excited about this young man’s potential, and I have been for a long time.
Franmil Reyes– (2-3) 2 HR, 2 RBI, 3 Runs, BB, K
Luis Urias– (1-4)
Dusty Coleman– (1-3) SB
Kyle McGrath– 2 IP, 4 K ((24 pitches- 14 strikes)
Walker Lockett- 5 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K (104 pitches- 68 strikes)
San Antonio Missions (16-10) Won 5-2
The Missions continue to play well as the team beat the RoughRiders tonight by the score of 5-2. Ty France blasted two homers and Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a solo homer in the fifth inning. Cal Quantrill went seven strong, striking out eight and walking two. Matt Strahm pitched a scoreless inning and Jose Castillo earned the save for San Antonio. The Missions are starting to play some quality baseball as they have one of the best bullpens in the Texas League.

The Storm were no-hit on Wednesday night as the 66ers combined on the rare feat. Jason Alexander started the game and went seven innings. He was removed after 93 pitches and Zac Ryan followed him by walking two in the eight, but getting out of the jam. In the ninth, Sean Isaac earned the final three outs, keeping his ERA at 0.00 for the year. The Storm managed six walks, but struck out 12 times on the night.
