San Diego Padres affiliates went 2-3 on Wednesday.

Here’s a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 5-2 vs Albuquerque in 7 innings) (34-48 on the season)
Cal Mitchell – (1-for-2) RBI Double
Tirso Ornelas – (1-for-3) RBI Single
Jackson Wolf – 4 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 4 K

After posting a 14.10 ERA in his last four starts, Jackson Wolf did not fare better against the Albuquerque Isotopes. The Padres’ No. 14 prospect tossed four innings of four-run baseball, striking out four. Wolf isn’t the prototypical swing-and-miss pitcher, and his lack of whiffs has been a major issue this season, as he now has a 7.71 ERA and 6.63 FIP, allowing nearly two baserunners an inning (1.93 WHIP). Lake Bachar allowed one run in two innings of work, striking out three batters.

Tirso Ornelas and Cal Mitchell drove in a run each, with Mitchell hitting an RBI double and Ornelas an RBI single. Nate Mondou posted a two-hit effort, and Graham Pauley notched a base hit of his own. Catcher Kevin Plawecki went 2-for-2 in the loss, with the team posting a 1-for-4 mark with runners in scoring position.


San Antonio Missions (Won 8-1 vs Corpus Christi) (37-39 on the season)
Brandon Valenzuela – Three Walks, Two Runs
Cole Cummings – (2-for-4) Double, Two RBI
Robby Snelling – 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 K (83 pitches, 56 strikes)

On the same day he was named to the MLB All-Star Futures Game, Robby Snelling showed why. The Padres’ No. 2 prospect delivered five quality innings of one-run baseball, striking out seven batters. The game marks a significant development for the left-hander, as he posted a 9.47 ERA across four games in June. Reliever Ryan Och continued his rebound, as he struck out five in two innings.

Brandon Valenzuela continued to show strides at the plate, walking three times and scoring twice. The Missions catcher continues to show major developments in his game, and as a Rule 5 eligible player, the Padres may look to give him a taste of Triple-A later this season if his current production continues. Cole Cummings drove in two runs on an RBI double, and Robbie Tenerowicz delivered the big hit with a three-run home run in the fourth to give San Antonio a lead it would not relinquish.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 5-0 vs Lansing) (32-45 on the season)
Ethan Salas – (2-for-5) RBI Double
Anthony Vilar – (4-for-5) Home Run, Double, Two RBI
Enmanuel Pinales – 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K (85 pitches, 49 strikes)

After a night of offensive struggles, the TinCaps let it rip on Monday night, shutting out the Lansing Lugnuts by a score of 5-0. Ethan Salas started the scoring with an RBI double. Salas would record two hits in the game, breaking out of an 0-for-22 streak. Anthony Vilar knocked in four hits and two RBI, including his fifth homer of the season. Jay Beshears followed Vilar’s lead as the TinCaps shortstop hit his second homer at High-A. Homer Bush Jr reached base twice and stole his 37th run of the season.

Enmanuel Pinales delivered on the mound, dominating the Lugnuts over six shutout innings. The right-hander would strike out five batters, allowing only four baserunners. Pinales showed tenacity with runners on, as the Lugnuts posted an 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position against him. Relievers Manuel Castro and Dwayne Matos held the lead over the final three innings, securing the shutout.


I'd like this amount to  

Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 10-8 vs Inland Empire) (38-37 on the season)
Luis Campusano – (1-for-3) Home Run, Three RBI
Jacob Campbell – (3-for-5) Double, Run Scored
Luis Gutierrez – 3.2 IP, 7 H, 6 R, 1 BB, 4 K (80 pitches, 56 strikes)

Luis Campusano hit a game-tying three-run home run for the Storm in his second game on rehab assignment, and the team logged four doubles in a pair of four-runs innings to take an 8-6 lead after three. Jacob Campbell recorded three hits of his own, as did Braedon Karpathios. Karpathios drove in two runs on his 14th double of the season. The team posted a 5-for-14 figure with runners in scoring position, stranding nine runners.

The pitching staff for Lake Elsinore struggled, with Luis Gutierrez allowing six runs in 3.2 innings. While Gutierrez had two scoreless frames, a trio of homers would account for the six runs he allowed in the game. As a matter of fact, the 66ers ended the game a grand slam shy of the home run cycle. Alejandro Lugo surrendered the tying runs in the seventh inning, and left-hander Javier Chacon let in the go-ahead runs in 2.2 innings of relief after Lugo. For Chacon, it was the first outing in which he allowed multiple runs since May 29th. Lake Elsinore’s offense went cold in the last two innings, going down 1-2-3 in the ninth to end a 10-8 loss.


ACL Padres (Lost 16-7 vs ACL Rangers) (19-24 on the season)
Colton Vincent – (4-for-4) Double, Three RBI
Carlos Rodriguez – (2-for-5) RBI Single
Mitch Miller – 0.2 IP, 3 H, 5 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 2 K

The ACL Padres’ pitching staff got torched on Tuesday night, allowing 15 base hits and seven walks. Starter Daniel Camarena allowed a run in the first inning, and reliever Mitch Miller allowed five unearned runs in 0.2 innings. Miller took the worst of the onslaught against Padres pitching, with Jesus Lopez allowing three runs in three innings.

Three Padres had multi-hit games, with Colton Vincent recording a 4-for-4 day, driving in three runs. B.Y. Choi continued his strong hitting, going 2-for-4 with an RBI. First baseman Carlos Rodriguez went 2-for-5, driving in another run. The team finished 4-for-11 with runners in scoring position, stranding 11 runners in the loss.
