Pedro Avila struggled through five innings, allowing four runs, but picked up the win thanks to the Chihuahuas offense.

Fort Wayne did attempt to rally, with Joshua Mears’ two-run home run bringing the Padres to within a run. Fort Wayne did get a runner on in the ninth, but nothing came of it, losing a close game.

Snider struck out nine batters while not walking any. Albert Fabian had a great day, homering and going 3-for-3 with a pair of walks. Charlis Aquino added a home run of his own, along with a trio of RBIs. The Storm recorded just 10 hits, but they came in bunches, so the Storm were able to convert them into nine runs.
DSL Padres (Off Day) (27-15 on the season)
The Padres will take on the DSL White Sox on Wednesday.
ACL Padres (Won 9-4 vs. ACL Rangers in 11 innings) (20-20 on the season)
Miguel Rondon: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Ruben Salinas: (2-for-6), 2B, 3 RBI
The Padres rallied to take the lead in the ninth and blew the save before scoring five times in the 11th to win a wild game with the Rangers. Miguel Rondon worked six solid innings, allowing just one run on four hits, but the Padres’ struggling offense meant the game was tied when he left. The Padres entered the ninth down by a run, quickly down to their final out. Kai Murphy drove in Graham Pauley for the game-tying run before Salinas brought in Murphy to take the lead. However, Justin Lopez failed to close the game out, and the Rangers tied the game to force extra innings. Pauley laid down a bunt in the eleventh, and an error by the Brewers proved to be enough to bring the winning run home.
