Ryan Weathers started the game and went six innings, allowing six earned runs on 104 pitches. The lefty owns a 6.83 ERA in the PCL this season.

Reggie Lawson– 3 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 6 K


The Missions won a slug-fest in Amarillo by the score of 14-12. The Missions played against the Padres’ former affiliate in a very interesting game in the Texas League. Reggie Lawson started the game and went three innings. The right-handed pitcher was wild, walking five batters in the game while striking out six. Jose Quezada was awarded the win as he recorded the last seven outs of the game.

Yorman Rodriguez enjoyed a career game with five singles on the night in a 5-for-6 effort. The 24-year-old catcher is enjoying a productive year with the Missions. Tirso Ornelas recorded two hits in the win, and Edwin Rojas tripled and had three hits on the night. Kelvin Melean homered (grand slam) in four at-bats for San Antonio.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 8-7) (34-49 on the season) 

Matthew Acosta– (3-for-5) Run, RBI, K

Corey Rosier– (2-for-4) HR, 3B, RBI, Run, BB, K

Robert Hassel- (1-for-4) 2 Runs, BB, K

Efrain Contreras– 2 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, BB, 3 K (59 pitches- 38 strikes)


The TinCaps walked it off in the ninth inning as Anthony Vilar singled to score Max Ferguson. Fort Wayne scored four runs in their last four at-bats to come back from a 7-4 deficit. Efrain Contreras started the game and allowed four earned runs in two innings of work. Seth Mayberry earned the win as he pitched a scoreless inning in the ninth for the TinCaps.

Corey Rosier homered and tripled in the win and has a .749 OPS so far this season in the Midwest League. Robert Hassell scored two runs, and Matthew Acosta went 3-for-5 with a run and an RBI. Every batter in the starting lineup recorded a hit for Fort Wayne on Wednesday.


Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 5-4) (50-33 on the season)

Wil Myers– (1-for-4) 2B, Run

Nerwilian Cedeno– (3-for-5) 2 RBIs

Albert Fabian– (2-for-4) 2B, 2 Runs, RBI, K

Bodi Rascon– 5 IP, 2 H, 3 BB, 3 K (74 pitches- 36 strikes)


The Storm continued their winning ways in a 5-4 victory over the Modesto Nuts. Nerwilian Cedeno singled and scored Albert Fabian in the ninth inning for the win. Wil Myers continued his rehab in Lake Elsinore as he doubled in four at-bats. James Wood walked four times and stole a base in the victory.

Bodi Rascon was effectively wild as he threw five shutout innings for the Storm. Ben Miller was roughed up a bit, but Keegan Collett recorded the last six out of the game and earned the win for Lake Elsinore.


ACL Padres



DSL Padres (Lost 10-3) 18-12 on the season

Jose Sanabria– (2-for-3)

Jose Cordero– (1-for-3) HR, Run, 2 RBIs

Hugo Sanchez– (1-for-3) Run

Aldo Leija– 4 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K


The DSL Padres team lost late in the game as the Reds scored eight runs in the top of the seventh for the win. Xavier Ruiz was torched for six runs (zero earned) and only recorded one out in the game. The defense for the Padres let the squad down as two errors proved really costly. Aldo Leija started the game and pitched well, striking out four in four innings of work.

Jose Sanabria recorded two hits in the loss, and Jose Cordero homered for the Padres. This pair of 19-year-olds could eventually make a mark in the Padre system.
