Minor League Baseball began its season at the Triple-A level on Tuesday.

The San Diego Padres are hoping for better results out of its affiliates this season, and that started off with a resounding victory from the El Paso Chihuahuas. 


El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 13-1) (1-0)

Eguy Rosario– 4-6, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Aderlin Rodriguez– 2-6, 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 K

Webster Rivas– 4-5, 1 R, 3 RBI

Jesse Scholtens– 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K

The scoring started slowly in Round Rock between the Chihuahuas and the Express. Webster Rivas drove in Eguy Rosario in the first inning to get things going, and then Juan Fernandez drove in a second run in the fourth. Leading just 2-0 going into the fifth inning. El Paso put the game away with six runs, three of which came off the bat of an Aderlin Rodriguez 416-foot home run.

El Paso added five more runs later in the game to solidify the win. Jesse Scholtens got the opening day start and dominated Round Rock. He allowed just two hits and a walk-in five scoreless frames that included five strikeouts. Grant Gavin looked sharp as the first Chihuahuas reliever, striking out five batters in two innings of work, but did allow a solo home run in the sixth inning.

There is no scheduled starter for the Chihuahuas on Wednesday against Round Rock.

  1. AJ has taken so much from our minor league teams. We need them to feed us reliable prospects each year on a consistent basis. I’m liking what we have there right now. I hope we’ll develop a few besides Gore and Campusano to help the club when called upon.
