San Diego Padres affiliates went 3-1 on Saturday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 11-8 to Alburquerque) (8-12 on the season)

Oscar Mercardo- (2-for-5) HR, 2B, 3 RBI, 2 Runs

Mason McCoy– (2-for-5) Run

Nate Mondou– (2-for-5) HR, 2B, RBI, 2 Runs

Gabe Mosser– 0.1 IP, 5 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, K (30 pitches- 15 strikes)


Right-handed pitcher Gabe Mosser was lit up for seven earned runs and only managed one out in the game. His ERA is at 189.00 and it is safe to say it will be going down in his next appearance in the PCL. The seven runs in the first put the game out of reach for El Paso, though they did make it an 8-5 game in the bottom of the fifth inning. But the team promptly gave up two runs in the sixth to the Isotopes, and that was it for El Paso. Mason McCoy, Nate Mondou, and Oscar Mercardo all recorded two hits in the loss. Tirso Ornelas homered and drove in three runs.


San Antonio Missions (Won 8-4 over Corpus Christi) (8-6 on the season)

Connor Hollis– (2-for-5) Run, RBI, K

Nathan Martorella– (2-for-5) Run, 2 RBI

Brandon Valenzuela– (2-for-4) RBI, BB

Ryan Bergert– 4.2 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, BB, K (77 pitches- 51 strikes)


Ryan Bergert was effective in a win for the Missions. Bergert was unable to make it out of the fifth inning, but Reggie Lawson came in to relieve the pitcher and earned the win. Ray-Patrick Didder homered in the win, and Nathan Martorella drove in a pair of runs. Catcher Brandon Valenzuela went 2-for-4 and recorded an RBI. Jakob Marsee went 1-f0r-3 with a stolen base for San Antonio.


I'd like this amount to  

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 7-5 over Dayton) (7-6 on the season)

Albert Fabian– (3-for-4) 2 2B, 4 Runs, BB

Lucas Dunn– (2-for-5) HR, Run, 2 RBI

Devin Ortiz– (3-for-5 ) HR, 2 Runs, 3 RBI

Dylan Lesko– 5 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 6 K (75 pitches- 43 strikes)


In the top of the 9th inning, Devin Ortiz homered for the TinCaps with one out, and that was all the team needed. Ortiz is on fire this week and owns a .921 OPS on the year for the TinCaps. Dylan Lesko started the game and struck out six batters in five innings of work. Manuel Castro earned his second save of the year with a perfect ninth for Fort Wayne. Lucas Dunn homered in the win, and Albert Fabian scored four runs and went 3-for-4 in the game.


Lake Elsinore Storm (Win 5-3 over Visalia) (7-5 on the season) 

Dillon Head– (2-for-4) HR, 2 Runs, RBI, 2 K

Romeo Sanabria– (2-for-3) HR, Run, RBI, BB, K

Ryan Wilson– (1-for-4) BB, 2 K

Isaiah Lowe– 2 IP, 2 H, ER, 2 BB, 2 K (43 pitches- 28 strikes)


Dillon Head homered for the first time this season and scored two runs. The speedy centerfielder is showing increased power this year, and the hope is that it will continue to come with time. Romeo Sanabria also homered for the Storm, and the first baseman went 2-for-3 in the win. The Storm only managed five hits in the game but made the most of them. The bullpen shut down Visalia after Isaiah Lowe pitched the first two innings. Xavier Ruiz earned his second save of the year on Saturday.
