San Diego Padres affiliates were 3-3 on Tuesday.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 6-3 to Sacramento) (34-48 on the season)
Taylor Kohlwey– (2-for-5) RBI, K
Luis Campusano– (2-for-5) RBI, 2 K
Jose Azocar– (2-for-3) 2B, RBI, Run, BB, SB
Luke Westphal– 3 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, BB, 5 K (71 pitches- 47 strikes)
The River Cats scored four runs in the fourth inning, and that was all they needed as they pulled away in a 6-3 win over El Paso. Luke Westphal started the game and went three innings, allowing five earned runs on six hits. The Chihuahuas’ bullpen threw well, recording five innings and only allowing one earned run (a solo homer off Nick Ramirez). The offense failed to get the job done when it counted. El Paso was 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position but just could overcome the early deficit. Taylor Kohlwey, Luis Campusano, and Jose Azocar each recorded two hits in the loss.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 15-0 to Midland) (38-46 on the season)
Esteury Ruiz– (2-for-4) 2B, K
Agustin Ruiz– (1-for-4)
Osvaldo Hernandez– 2 IP, 9 H, 8 ER, K (49 pitches-35 strikes)
Olivier Basabe– 1 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, BB, K (28 pitches- 16 strikes)
The Missions were smashed on Tuesday by a score of 15-0. Osvaldo Hernandez was wild in the zone, giving up eight earned runs in two innings of work. The lefty did not have his stuff on the night, and the Missions essentially lost the game in the early innings. San Antonio had infielder Olivier Basabe finish up the game, and the infielder allowed four earned runs in an inning of relief. Agustin Ruiz debuted with the San Antonio, recording a hit in four at-bats. The outfielder was promoted from the TinCaps this week after smashing 15 homers in 285 at-bats in the Midwest League. Esteury Ruiz went 2-f0r-4 in the loss.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 6-2 to South Bend) (40-45 on the season)
Tirso Ornelas– (1-for-4) HR, RBI, Run, K
Ethan Skender– (1-for-3) BB, 2 K
Zack Mathis– (1-for-3) BB
Connor Lehmann– 4.2 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (88 pitches- 53 strikes)
The TinCaps saw a familiar face on the mound against them as Anderson Espinoza started the game for the Cubs. The right-handed pitcher was dealt from Fort Wayne a few weeks ago as the Padres obtained Jake Marisnek from the Chicago Cubs. Espinoza looked great, firing fastball at 95-97 mph and showing a devastating slider. Espinoza went 3.1 innings, allowing two earned runs and striking out five. Connor Lehmann started the game and allowed three earned runs in four-plus innings of work. Matteo Bocchi relieved Espinoza, and he contained the TinCaps for the rest of the game. Bocchi only allowed one hit in 5.2 innings of relief. Tirso Ornelas went 1-for-4 with a solo homer off Espinoza in the first inning.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 8-4 over Visalia) (37-47 on the season)
Euribiel Angeles– (2-for-4) 2 Runs, BB
Colton Bender– (3-for-4) 2 RBIs, Run
Lucas Dunn– (2-for-3) 2 Runs, BB
Robert Hassell III- (2-for-5) 2B, Run, RBI,
Lake Elsinore earned an 8-4 win over Visalia on Tuesday. The Storm broke open a close game with four late runs to get the win. Five Lake Elsinore hitters recorded multiple hits in the win. Colton Bender went 3-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs. Lake Elsinore was 5-for-11 with runners in scoring position as they made the most out of their opportunities. Jesus Lugo started the game and went 3.1 innings allowing four earned runs. Jason Reynolds was credited with the win as the right-handed pitcher went 2.2 innings without allowing a run to score.
ACL Padres (Won 2-1 over Royals Blue) (10-19 on the season)
James Wood– (1-for-2) Run, BB
Cole Cummings– (1-for-3) 2B, RBI, K
Jared Alvarez-Lopez– (1-for-3) RBI, K
Jackson Merrill– (0-for-2) Run, BB, K
The ACL Padres won a close game against the Royals Blue team on Tuesday. Six different pitchers held the Royals to two hits in the game. Yerry Landinez gave up the only run and hits of the game for the Padres. Robert Gasser, Sean Mayberry, Ben Miller, Ethan Routzahn, and Joshua Paulina all pitched an inning of relief without allowing a hit. Offensively, James Wood continues to impress as he went 1-for-2 and scored a run in the game. Wood owns a .874 OPS so far this season.
