Friday was a relatively quiet night on Padres farm.

Three of its affiliates lost, and none of the top prospects did anything noteworthy.

A Padres pitcher made another appearance on their rehab assignment, and a different one makes their first rehab appearance tomorrow in Lake Elsinore. 


El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 6-4) (11-11 on the season)

Eguy Rosario– 2-for-3, 2 BB

Thomas Eshelman– 4 IP, 10 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Luke Westphal– 3 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

The El Paso Chihuahuas fell behind early and couldn’t catch up to the Reno Aces in a 6-4 loss. Thomas Eshelman allowed runs in each of his final three innings while taking the loss. Four Chihuahuas hitters tallied two hits: Eguy Rosario, Aderlin Rodriguez, Nomar Mazara, and Brett Sullivan. Of the two extra-base hits for the Chihuahuas, Nomar Mazara doubled, and Luis Liberato hit a home run. 

Kyle Tyler will be the starter for the Chihuahuas on Saturday.


San Antonio Missions (Lost 7-6) (6-13 on the season)

Yorman Rodriguez– 2-for-5, 1 R, 2 RBI

Tirso Ornelas– 2-for-5, 1 R, 1 RBI

Gabe Morales– 2.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Henry Henry– 2 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 3 K


Six runs in the seventh inning were not enough for the San Antonio Missions in a 7-6 loss to the Springfield Cardinals. Gabe Morales struggled in his start, surrendering three earned runs in just over two innings of work. Moises Lugo and Henry Henry kept the Missions in the contest, allowing just one run over the next 4.2 innings. San Antonio’s offense exploded for six runs to take a 6-5 lead. Esteury Ruiz and Yorman Rodriguez each drove in two runs to get the rally started, then Tirso Ornelas singled home the tying run before Juan Fernandez doubled to give the Missions the lead. Mason Fox got tasked with the eighth inning now with the lead. On a pair of hits, Fox surrendered the lead, and the Missions could not recover.

San Antonio has not announced its starter for Saturday.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 1-0) (11-8 on the season)

Robert Hassell III- 1-for-4, 2 K

Joshua Mears– 0-for-4, 4 K

Noel Vela– 4.1 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 5 BB, 4 K

Nick Thwaits– 2 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 0 K


The Fort Wayne TinCaps were shut out in a 1-0 loss to the Dayton Dragons. Fort Wayne only got four hits in the contest. Only one of them went for extra bases, and that was a Corey Rosier double, who got two hits. The other hits were singles by Robert Hassell III and Angel Solarte. Noel Vela walked five batters but navigated 4.1 innings without allowing a run to start. Brandon Komar followed him with eight outs before Nick Thwaits got the ball to start the eighth inning. He got through his first inning without allowing a run but allowed an RBI single to Jack Rogers in the ninth inning for the only run in the game.

Danny Denz will start for Fort Wayne on Saturday.

Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 3-2) (13-6 on the season)

James Wood– 1-for-4

Justin Farmer– 2-for-3, 1 R, 1 BB

Garrett Hawkins– 5 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 7 K, 0 BB

Jose Castillo– 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 K, 1 BB

Two runs in the eighth inning pushed the Lake Elsinore Storm to a 3-2 victory over the Inland Empire 66ers. Garrett Hawkins turned in a solid start, allowing just one run over five innings of work while striking out seven batters. Jose Castillo, Padres left-handed reliever who’s on a rehab assignment, pitched a scoreless sixth inning while striking out two hitters and walking just one. In the bottom half, Lucas Dunn hit a tying inside-the-park home run. Hazahel Quijada allowed the go-ahead run in the eighth inning but was quickly removed from the hook of a loss. After Lucas Dunn popped out to lead off the bottom of the eighth, three Storm batters walked in a row. Marcos Castanon singled up the middle to give the Storm the late lead and the victory. Matthew Swilley closed the game out but got credited with the win.

Michel Baez will make his anticipated return to the mound after undergoing Tommy John surgery for the Storm on Saturday.
