The minor league affiliates for the San Diego Padres were 1-3 today

Here is a quick recap of how they did

El Paso Chihuahuas (26-27) Lost 2-1

In a low-scoring affair, the Chihuahuas couldn’t overcome a seventh inning sacrifice fly from Jack Mayfield and fell to the Fresno Grizzlies.  El Paso took the initial lead in the fourth inning with an RBI single off the bat of Diego Goris, but they would be unable to scratch across any other runs in the game. Dillon Overton only allowed two runs in his five and 1/3 innings, but he still absorbed the loss despite the bullpen throwing two and 2/3 scoreless innings.

Diego Goris: 1-4, RBI, K

Carlos Asuaje: 2-4, R, 2 K

Javier Guerra: 1-4, K

Dillon Overton: 5 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 4 BB, 5 K (103 pitches-60 strikes) Loss

Robert Stock: 1 2/3 IP, 2 K, 0 ER (22 pitches-16 strikes)

San Antonio Missions (31-20) Won 11-5

Watch out Padres fans; Fernando Tatis lighting up the minor leagues. Again. The shortstop led the charge against the Tulsa Drillers today as, batting leadoff, he was one of five Missions to have a multi-hit game. Austin Allen and River Stevens had a two-run and a three-run home run respectively while Josh Naylor added three RBI of his own. Starting pitcher Cal Quantrill was a victim of some bad luck, as he allowed five runs to cross, but only one was charged due to fielding errors. The Missions have now won 17 of 27 games in May.

Fernando Tatis Jr. 3-5, 2B, 2 R, BB, CS. E

River Stevens: 4-4, HR, 3 RBI, R, BB, CS

Josh Naylor: 2-6, 2B, 3 RBI, R

Austin Allen: 3-5, HR, 3 RBI, 2 R, 2 K

Cal Quantrill: 5 IP, 5 H, 5 R (1 earned), 2 BB, 7 K (99 pitches-62 strikes) Win

Lake Elsinore Storm (25-27) Lost 9-3

It was a rough night for the Storm tonight as the offense picked up far too late to make a difference in the game. RBI by Brad Zunica and Eguy Rosario in the final two innings were not enough to bring the Storm a victory as the Quakes had shaken up Austin Smith for six runs in his two innings of work. Smith has struggled immensely and has worked to a 7.31 ERA, so time may be running short for the former second-round pick. Michel Baez seemed to have lost some of his control in the game, walking four batters and striking out three while allowing two home runs.

Eguy Rosario: 1-4, 2B, RBI

Hudson Potts: 1-3, R, RBI, BB, K

Brad Zunica: 0-3, SF, RBI

Michel Baez : 5 IP, 3 H, 3 R (2 earned), 4 BB, 3 K (91 pitches-51 strikes) Loss

Austin Smith: 2 IP, 4 H, 6 ER, 4 BB, 2 K (58 pitches-26 strikes)

Fort Wayne TinCaps (23-28) Lost 7-5

In a seesaw match, the TinCaps and the Bowling Green Hot Rods swapped the lead four times and it was the final swap that ultimately did Fort Wayne in. A ninth inning rally off of relievers Jared Carkuff and Travis Radke allowed the Hot Rods to speed away with the victory. Tirso Ornelas continues to hit well at the Low-A level as he had two walks and a two-RBI double while Estuery Ruiz pilfered three bases and scored twice from the lead off spot.

Tirso Ornelas: 1-2, 2 RBI, 2B, 2 BB, SB, K

Esteury Ruiz: 2-4, 2 R, BB, 2 K, 3 SB

Justin Lopez: 2-3, HR, 2B, 2 RBI, R, BB

Aaron Leasher: 5 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 5 K (87 pitches-55 strikes) No Decision

Jared Carkuff: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, BB, K, (29 pitches-18 strikes) Loss
