Jose Azocar– (1-for-4) 2 K’s
Luke Westphal– 3.1 IP, 2 BB, 4 K (60 pitches/ 38 strikes)
Jose Castillo– 1.1 IP, 1 H, BB, 3 K
El Paso failed to get anything going offensively in a loss against Tacoma. Luke Westphal started the game and went 3.1 innings without allowing a run. Evan Miller was charged with the loss as he gave up a run on the night. Aaron Northcraft surrendered the other run for El Paso.
Offensively, only two hits were managed by the team. C.J. Hinojosa singled and stole a base. Jose Azocar also singled in the loss for the Chihuahuas. Wil Myers played right-field and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in the game. The Chihuahuas struck out 12 times in the game and were 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 7-4) (48-41 on the season)
Reggie Lawson– 1.2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, K (51 pitches- 21 strikes)
Juan Fernandez– (2-for-4) 2B, Run
Domingo Leyba– (3-for-4) 2 Runs, RBI, BB
Connor Hollis– (2-for-4) Run, BB, K
The Missions lost to Midland on Tuesday as Reggie Lawson struggled on the mound. Lawson did not have his best command as he walked five batters in 1.2 innings of work. The right-handed pitcher was charged with three earned runs and has a 5.03 ERA so far this season in the Texas League. Lawson was relieved by Kevin Kopps, who pitched well, recording seven outs while striking out three and not allowing an earned run.
The team managed nine hits in the game but went 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position. Juan Fernandez recorded two hits, and Domingo Leyba went 3-for-4 with two runs scored on the night. Jorge Ona went 1-for-3 and is down to a .639 OPS on the season. The former top prospect is only a shadow of himself in San Antonio.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 11-4) (39-52 on the season)
Cole Cummings– (3-for-6) 2 RBIs, 2 K’s
Jackson Wolf– 5 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 3 K’s (84 pitches- 53 strikes)
Olivier Basabe– (2-for-4) 2 Runs
Corey Rosier– (4-for-5) 2B, 4 RBIs, Run, SB
The TinCaps won on the road in Peoria as the team scored 11 runs on 14 hits. Jackson Wolf started the game and shut out the Chiefs for five innings. Gabe Morales surrendered two runs in relief of Wolf in 2.1 innings of work. Sam Keating recorded the last three outs of the game for the TinCaps.
Speedster Corey Rosier went 4-for-5 with a double and 4 RBIs in the win. He also stole his 30th base of the year for the TinCaps. The left-handed hitter owns a .776 OPS in his first season with the Padres. Olivier Basabe recorded two hits, and Cole Cummings went 3-for-6 for the TinCaps.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 12-3) (52-39 on the season)
Manuel Castro– 1.2 IP, 9 H, 7 ER, K (35 pitches- 25 strikes)
James Wood– (1-for-4) 2B, Run, K
Carlos Luis– (2-for-4) RBI, K
Justin Farmer– (2-for-4) K
Manuel Castro was shelled for seven earned runs as he failed to get out of the second inning. That was essentially the game for Lake Elsinore, as they lost 12-3 on the road in Stockton. Alexuan Vega and Matt Sparling also gave up runs on the night for Lake Elsinore. The lone bright spot was Ruben Galindo, who pitched three shutout innings to close the game for the Storm.
The offense got in a big hole and could not do anything to get back into the game. James Wood doubled in four at-bats, and Carlos Luis and Justin Farmer each recorded two hits in the loss. There was not much to celebrate for the Storm on Tuesday night.
ACL Padres (Lost 8-0) (16-19 on the season)
Robert Suarez– 1 IP, 3 K
Victor Acosta– (2-for-3) 2 BB
Josstin Diaz- (2-for-4) K
Ruben Salinas– (1-for-3) BB, K
Padres reliever Robert Suarez started the game for the ACL Padres on Wednesday, and he threw a scoreless inning. The power pitcher struck out all three batters he faced in the game, and it looks like he will be ready soon to join the major league team. Miguel Rondon relieved Suarez and gave up three runs in three innings of work. Wilki Lezan and Miguel Mendez also pitched in the game and surrendered runs to the Blu Jays DSL team.
Prized prospect Victor Acosta recorded two hits and walked twice in the game. Josttin Diaz also had two hits, and Ruben Salinas went 1-for-3 with a walk for the Padres.
DSL Padres (Won 6-2) (24-14 on the season)
Jose Sanabria- (1-for-3) Run, BB, K
Estuar Suero– (2-f0r-2) HR, 2 Rns, RBI, BB, 2 SBs
Maikol Munoz– (1-for-3) HR, RBI, Run, K
Jonney Rosario– 5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, BB, 7 K
The DSL Padres continued their winning ways with a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays DSL team. Jonney Rosario started the game and went five innings, only allowing one earned run. The 17-year-old right-handed pitcher struck out seven in the game. Francis Pena relieved him and got the last six out of the game for the Padres.
Jose Sanabria continues to establish himself in the DSL as he went 1-for-3 on Tuesday with a run scored. The 19-year-old switch-hitter should be promoted to the ACL team soon. Sanabria is hitting .331 on the season with a .877 OPS. Maikol Munoz homered in the win, and Estuar Suero went 2-for-2 with a homer and two stolen bases.
