San Diego Padres affiliates went 2-1 on Tuesday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 7-5 over Tacoma) (10-12 on the season)

Cal Mitchell- (3-for-4) 2B, RBI, BB, 2 SB

Tirso Ornelas– (2-for-4) 2 Runs, SB

Donovan Solano– (2-for-4) Run, 2 RBI

Ryan Carpenter-2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K (67 pitches- 38 strikes)


El Paso got out to an early lead in the third inning and maintained it throughout the game in a 7-5 win over the Rainiers. Cal Mitchell led the way with the bats as the outfielder went 3-for-4 with a double, walk, and two stolen bases. Mitchell is playing better of late and could eventually be an option for the Padres. Tirso Ornelas went 2-for-4 with two runs knocked in for El Paso. Mason McCoy homered for the Chihuahuas in the win.

Ryan Carpenter started the game and allowed three runs without getting out of the third inning. His bullpen backed up the veteran pitcher as four pitchers held Tacoma to two more runs in the game. Kevin Kopps struck out two in two innings and could eventually be an option for the Padres bullpen. Jeremiah Estrada continued to impress, saving his third game of the season. Estrada struck out all three batters he faced in the game.

San Antonio Missions (Won 1-0 over Wichita) (9-7 on the season)

Jakob Marsee– (2-for-4) Run

Cole Cummings– (1-for-3) 2B, RBI

Ray-Patrick Didder– (1-for-3) SB

Jared Kollar-4 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 4 K (77 pitches- 48 strikes)


The Missions were dominant on the mound as five pitchers combined on a five-hit shutout of Wichita at home. Jared Kollar started the game and went four innings, allowing three hits and two walks in his 77 pitches. Ethan Routzahn relieved him and earned the win as the right-hander pitched two innings of shutout ball. Josh Roberson and Woo-Suk Go held the Wind Surge in check, and Jayvien Sandridge recorded the save for the TinCaps.

Jakob Marsee is showing some signs of life after a slow start and went 2-for-4 in the game with a run scored. Cole Cummings drove in the game’s only run on a double, and Ray-Patrick Didder stole a base and recorded a hit. The Missions only managed four hits in the game, but that was enough for the win. Nathan Martorella went 0-for-4 in the contest.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (8-6 on the season)

Postponed- Rain


Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 7-2 to Rancho Cucamunga) (8-6 on the season)

Leodalis De Vries- (0-for-4)

Dillon Head– (2-for-4) 3B, 2 RBI, K

Nick Vogt– (1-for-4) K

Fernando Sanchez– 3 IP, 2 H, BB, 2 K (45 pitches- 26 strikes)


The score was tied two apiece heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, but the Quakes broke the game open in a big way. Three runs in the seventh and two in the eighth were enough for the win. The storyline for the game was the debut of 17-year-old Leodalis De Vries, who went 0-for-4 in the game, batting out of the third spot in the lineup. De Vries comes with plenty of upside, and it isn’t a surprise the Padres promoted him this early. Do yourself a favor and go watch this youngster play up in Lake Elsinore.

Fernando Sanchez started the game and went three scoreless innings, striking out a pair of batters. The 23-year-old lefty from Mexico made the best of his first start of the 2024 season. Dwayne Matos and Xavier Ruiz coughed up runs late in the game for the Storm in the loss. Matos was saddled with the loss. Breck Eichelberger also gave up two runs for the Storm as he relieved Sanchez in the fourth inning. Not a great game for the bullpen.
