Here is a recap of the day’s events.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 9-4 vs. Round Rock) (49-36 on the season)
Matt Waldron: 6 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 7 K (97 pitches, 65 strikes)

C.J. Hinojosa: (1-for-3), HR, 4 RBI, R, K
Kyle Martin: (1-for-4), HR, 2 RBI, R, K
Luis Liberato hit a first-inning grand slam, and El Paso never looked back. The Chihuahuas hit four home runs in the victory, with C.J. Hinojosa, Kyle Martin, and Michael Cantu all left the yard along with Liberato. Matt Waldron gave up a two-run home run to the second batter he faced, but he finished with six innings of two-run ball. He struck out seven in the process. The offensive explosion from the Chihuahuas came on twelve hits, while Luis Campusano reached base four times in five plate appearances.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 6-5 to Amarillo) (42-38 on the season)
Brandon Komar: 6 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 0 BB, 2 K (73 pitches, 50 strikes)
Yorman Rodriguez: (3-for-5), HR, 3 RBI, R
Domingo Leyba: (1-for-3), 2B, RBI, 2 R, 2 BB, K
Ripken Reyes: (1-for-3), 2B, R, K
The Missions jumped into an early three-run lead, but the Sod Poodles walked them off. Domingo Leyba doubled home Thomas Milone in the first before scoring on Yorman Rodriguez’s single. Ripken scored an unearned run in the second when Milone grounded into an RBI. The Sod Poodles struck back with three runs off Missions’ starter Brandon Komar in the bottom of the frame. They scored two more in the third and fourth, putting Amarillo ahead by a pair. Rodriguez blasted a two-run home run in the fifth to tie the game, and it stayed deadlocked until the ninth. Angel Felipe entered the game to force extra innings, but he allowed a leadoff double and a single to end the game.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 7-1 vs. Lansing) (33-49 on the season)
Noel Vela: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K (97 pitches, 61 strikes)
Corey Rosier: (3-for-3), 2 R, BB, SB
Lucas Dunn: (2-for-4), R, SB, K
Max Ferguson: (1-for-3), 3B, RBI, R, HBP, K
Fort Wayne rode a great pitching performance from Noel Vela to a victory. Lansing took the lead in the third on an RBI groundout, but that was all they could produce against the TinCaps. Four singles and a wild pitch in the fourth put three runs on the board, which put Fort Wayne ahead for good. Corey Rosier had three singles and a walk in the win, as he helped to score two runs. Max Ferguson added a triple as he moved up from Lake Elsinore. It was a great day for the struggling TinCaps.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 14-5 to Modesto) (49-33 on the season)
Ruben Galindo: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (18 pitches, 8 strikes)
Wil Myers: (2-for-4), R, K
Nerwilian Cedeno: (1-for-3), 2B, R, BB, 2 K
Marcos Castanon: (1-for-5), 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K
Wil Myers made his return to the Diamond in Lake Elsinore, putting together two singles in a rehab appearance. However, Modesto scored six runs in both the fourth and ninth innings, routing the Storm. It was a frustrating day for the Storm, who led by three runs after the third inning. Marcos Castanon had a two-run double in the frame, scoring Myers and James Wood, but it was nowhere near enough offense to salvage the game.
DSL Padres (Lost 5-4 to DSL BAL Orange) (18-11 on the season)
Jonney Rosario: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 2 K
Hugo Sanchez: (2-for-2), R, BB, SB
Alain Camou: (1-for-4), 2B, RBI
Jose Sanabria: (1-for-4), 3B, R
The Padres led the entire way, but the Orioles scored four times in the seventh inning to walk the game off. Jose Sanabria tripled in the first before scoring on a sacrifice fly to start the scoring. Alain Camou’s fifth-inning double put the Padres in front after Jonney Rosario’s solid start. He worked 5.2 innings of one-run baseball. Baltimore walked it off on Wilmer Feliciano’s two-run home run, ending the game in disappointing fashion.
ACL Padres (Won 6-2 vs. ACL Dodgers) (13-14 on the season)
Luis Acosta: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K
Colton Bender: (1-for-3), HR, 2 RBI, R
Victor Acosta: (2-for-3), 3B, 2B, 2 R, BB, SB
Ruben Salinas: (2-for-3), BB, SB, K
The Padres rallied in the final innings to beat the Dodgers. The Dodgers scored twice off Jarlin Susana, the Padres starter. However, the Padres got three shutout innings in relief from Luis Acosta, who earned the win. Colton Bender blasted a fifth-inning home run, while Victor Acosta both tripled and doubled. Bender’s home run put the Padres ahead for good.
