The minor league affiliates for the San Diego Padres went 5-1 on Thursday.
Here is a brief recap of the day’s action.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 7-6 against the Round Rock Express) (50-37 on the season)
Eguy Rosario: (1-for-2) 2 RBI, R, 2B, BB
Taylor Kohlwey: (3-for-4) 3 RBI, R, 2B
Luis Campusano: (1-for-4) RBI, 2 K
Jose Castillo: 2 IP, H, 2 K (26 pitches – 19 strikes)
It only took five batters for the Round Rock Express to take a four-run lead over the El Paso Chihuahuas. After the eighth inning, they had blown that lead as El Paso took a 7-6 lead thanks to Eguy Rosario’s sacrifice fly. Taylor Kohlwey played a large part in the comeback victory, collecting three RBIs on a two-run single in the fourth inning, and a hit-by-pitch drove in another run in the sixth. El Paso’s bullpen held Round Rock hitters to just two hits over five innings while striking out five.
San Antonio Missions (Won 6-0 against the Amarillo Sod Poodles) (44-38 on the season)
Edwin Rojas: (2-for-3) HR, 2 RBI, R, 2B
Ripken Reyes: (2-for-4) RBI, R, 2B,
Thomas Milone: (1-for-5) RBI, 2B, 2 K
Ryan Lillie: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 K, Win (69 pitches – 50 strikes)
In a dominant outing for San Antonio, all but one starting position player had a base hit. Starting pitcher Ryan Lillie and three other pitchers combined to strike out six Sod Poodles while shutting out Amarillo on their home turf. Initially, San Antonio only had one run to their name after Thomas Milone’s RBI double in the first inning. While this proved to be more than enough runs, the Missions dropped five more runs in the eighth inning to secure the win.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 35-49 against the Lansing Lugnuts) (35-49 on the season)
Robert Hassell III: (2-for-5) 2 RBI, R, 2B
Cole Cummings: (2-for-4) RBI, K, BB
Lucas Dunn: (1-for-3) RBI, R, BB, 2 K
Robert Gasser: 5 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, BB, 5 K, No Decision (90 pitches – 59 strikes)
Thanks to a four-run third inning kicked off by a two-run double by Robert Hassell III. The TinCaps were staked to a 4-0 lead. The Lugnuts were able to come back against Robert Gasser in the following two innings on the strength of two home runs and an RBI double. Both sides traded zeroes until the eighth inning after Lucas Dunn drove home Anthony Villar with a single for the winning run.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 5-4 against the Modesto Nuts) (51-33 on the season)
Jurickson Profar: (0-for-4) R, BB, 2 K
Wil Myers: (1-for-3) HR, 2 RBI, R, BB, K
James Wood: (2-for-4) R, 2B, BB
Alan Mundo: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 K, Win (24 pitches – 20 strikes)
Another rehabbing Major Leaguer joined the Storm today as Jurickson Profar joined the roster to begin his rehab assignment after suffering a concussion after a collision with CJ Abrams. While Profar was unable to get a hit, fellow big leaguer Wil Myers launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh. Marcos Castanon gave Lake Elsinore the lead in the same inning with his 13th home run of the year, a two-run shot that extended his hitting streak to 18 games.

DSL Padres (Won 9-6 against DSL Reds) (19-12 on the season)
Oliver Carrillo: (2-for-3) HR, 2 RBI, 2 R, 2B, 2 BB, K
Oswaldo Linares: (3-for-5) 2 RBI, R
Hugo Sanchez: (2-for-4) 3 R, 2B, 2 BB, K, SB
Braian Salazar: 2 IP, H, BB, 4 K, No Decision
While the Padres had a two-run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, the Reds took advantage of a couple of walks and an error to drive home four runs and take a 6-4 lead. However, sloppy pitching and defense came around to haunt the Reds as well. Three walks loaded the bases for the Padres with just one out, and they cashed in with five runs to retake the lead. A solo home run by Oliver Carrilo was the capstone to the explosive inning.
ACL Padres (Lost 12-6 against ACL Dodgers) (13-15 on the season)
Victor Acosta: (2-for-5) 2 RBI, K
Carlos Rodriguez: (1-for-5) HR, RBI, R
Kelvin Alarcon: (2-for-4) RBI
It was a tough day to be a Padres starter as three of the four Padres pitchers allowed at least one run. Starter Fernando Sanchez only got five outs and allowed seven runs, while reliever Adrian Luna coughed up four more in his 2.1 innings of work. The Padres wouldn’t score their first run of the game until the fourth inning, when Carlos Rodriguez uncorked a solo home run.
