He also walked twice, reaching base all five times he entered the batter’s box. Eguy Rosario and C.J. Hinojosa also homered, while Matt Beaty doubled twice in the win. Albuquerque jumped on Matt Waldron early, scoring three times in the first inning. Waldron got it together, working four scoreless innings to end his outing. Campusano’s home run, a three-run shot, put the Chihuahuas ahead for good in the sixth.

San Antonio’s offense was shut down, wasting a gem from their pitching staff. Brandon Komar worked six scoreless frames, before Wichita finally scored in the top of the ninth to take the lead. San Antonio had just four hits, struggling to get anything going. Tirso Ornelas’ double was the only extra base hit of the day, while Webster Rivas was the only player to reach base multiple times. The Missions went 0-for-3 in their limited opportunities with runners in scoring position. The most exciting Missions news was that Fernando Tatis Jr. will begin a rehab assignment there sometime in the next 1-2 days.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 6-5 vs. South Bend) (42-57 on the season)

Nick Thwaits: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (35 pitches, 25 strikes)

The TinCaps rallied in the late innings to earn a walk-off win. South Bend scored four times off Fort Wayne starter Ryan Bergert, but three shutout innings from Nick Thwaits brought the TinCaps back into the game. Olivier Basabe tripled in a pair, before scoring on Agustin Ruiz’s RBI groundout, cutting the deficit to one. South Bend scored in the top of the eighth, but Albert Fabian homered to bring the game back to within one. Jarryd Dale blasted a triple in the bottom of the ninth to score Ruiz and Reinaldo Ilarraza, completing the comeback for Fort Wayne.


Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 6-3 vs. Visalia) (59-41 on the season)

Hugo Sanchez: (1-for-2), HR, RBI, R, BB

Maikol Munoz: (2-for-4), 2 2B, R

The Padres lost in frustrating fashion, as the game was called after 7.1 innings due to rain. The Padres, who trailed by as much as four, had rallied to pull within a run, but could not complete the comeback. Jose Cordero and Hugo Sanchez each went deep, while Maikol Munoz had the only multi-hit day for the Padres. He had a pair of doubles in the game, as he sought to help complete the Padres’ comeback. The White Sox scored all seven runs in their first five innings, as Jeison Sanchez had held them off the board.

Braedon Karpathios and Griffin Doersching each went deep to provide the offense, while Rosman Verdugo got the scoring started with a two-run single.
