San Diego Padres affiliates went 3-2 on Wednesday.
Here is a recap of the day’s event.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 9-4) (53-42 on the season)
Wil Myers- (1-for-4) HR, 2 RBIs, Run
Pedro Avila- 4 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, BB, 4 K (73 pitches- 48 strikes)
Jose Azocar- (2-for-6) HR, 2B, 3 RBIs, Run
Luis Campusano- (1-for-4) Run, 2 BB
The Chihuahuas scored five runs in the top of the 12th inning off old friend Nick Margevicius, who was pitching in relief for El Paso. Jose Azocar slugged a deep homer with two men on, and the Chihuahuas put the game out of reach for the Rainiers. Kervin Pichardo hit his first Triple-A homer with two outs in the 12th off Margevicius. There was a scary moment in the 12th as Luis Liberato was hit in the face by a ball thrown by Margevicius. He was assisted off the field by the training staff.

Wil Myers homered early in the game for El Paso, and Pedro Avila threw four innings, allowing three earned runs. Tom Cosgrove threw a scoreless 10th and 11th inning for El Paso, working out of jams in both innings. Alek Jacob pitched the 12th for the Chihuahuas, returning all three men he faced. The right-handed submarine-style pitcher has a 4.74 ERA on the season.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 3-2) (48-42 on the season)
Tirso Ornelas- (3-for-5) Run, RBI
Yorman Rodriguez- (2-for-4) 2B, RBI, BB, K
Ripken Reyes- (2-for-3) Run, BB
Nolan Watson- 4 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, BB, 2 K (85 pitches- 53 strikes)
The Missions lost a close game against the RockHounds on Wednesday night. Midland scored a late run in the seventh and eighth inning to take the lead. Nolan Warson started the game for San Antonio, and he pitched well, going four innings and allowing one earned run. Converted infielder Carlos Belen gave up the two runs in his two innings of work. The right-handed pitcher took the loss and owns a 4.08 ERA this season.
Tirso Ornelas recorded three hits in the loss and is up to a .740 OPS on the season. The left-handed hitter from Mexico is heating up after a very cold start to the 2022 season. Former USD product Ripken Reyes went 2-for-3 and scored a run. Yorman Rodriguez doubled in four at-bats and drove in a run for the Missions.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 4-1) (39-53 on the season)
Robert Gasser- 4 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 6 K (80 pitches- 55 strikes)
Brandon Valenzuela- (1-for-4) Run, BB
Joshua Mears- (1-or-4) 2 K
Corey Rosier- (1-for-3) BB, 2 K
Fort Wayne lost to the Chiefs as they could not get anything going against Peoria on Wednesday. The TinCaps only managed five hits in the game and struck out 12 times as a team. Each hitter in the lineup except for Brandon Valenzuela struck out in the game. The switch-hitting catcher went 10for04 with a walk. Josh Mears made a return to the lineup in the Midwest League and singled in four at-bats.
Robert Gasser did not have his best stuff as he allowed four earned runs in four innings pitched. Jose Espada threw three scoreless innings of relief after Gasser and was a bright spot for the team.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 8-3) (53-39 on the season)
Carlos Luis- (2-for-3) 2 2B, 2 Runs, BB, K
Justin Farmer- (2-for-4) 3B, Run, 2 RBIs
James Wood- (1-for-4) HR, Run, 2 RBIs, BB, K
Wyatt Hoffman- (2-for-4) 2 2B, 2 Runs, RBI, SB
The Storm won at home against Stockton as the team ran away late in the game. Six runs in Lake Elsinore’s last three at-bats were enough to provide the win. Jesus Gonzalez started the game and went six innings, allowing two earned runs. Keegan Collett allowed a run in his one inning of work, and ALan Mundo got the last three out of the game for Lake Elsinore.

James Wood homered in the sixth inning, blasting his ninth homer of the season. Carlos Luis and Justin Framer each recorded two hits. Trevor Hoffman’s son Wyatt Hoffman doubled twice and scored two runs for Lake Elsinore on Wednesday.
ACL Padres (16-19 on the season)
DSL Padres (Won 14-8) (25-14 on the season)
Jose Sanabria- (2-for-4) 2 Runs, 2 RBIs, BB
Yendry Rojas- (2-for-4) 3 Runs, BB, SB
Estuar Suero- (2-for-4) HR, 2 Runs, 3 RBIs, SB
Karshon Conliffe- (2-for-3) HR, 2 RBIs, 2 Runs, BB, K
The DSL Padres beat the DSL D-backs team on Wednesday in a convincing fashion. The team slugged three homers in the win as Estuar Suero, Karsho Conliffe, and Oswaldo Linares all went deep in the win. Every hitter in the starting lineup recorded a hit except for Jesus Castro, who went 0-for-2 with a walk. Jose Sanabria continues his hitting ways as the infielder went 2-for-4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs.
Joel Asencio recorded the win pitching in relief. The 6-foot-7, 19-year-old threw 3.1 scoreless innings out of the pen. Asencio is a deep sleeper who could factor eventually for the Padres.
