Three of the San Diego Padres minor league affiliates walked away with victories on Sunday.
A couple of big names homered, while others got a handful of hits.
Both rookie ball leagues were off Sunday, so it was just the minor league affiliates detailed in the final farm report for July.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 10-2) (54-45)
Wil Myers– 0-1, 3 BB, 1 K
Eguy Rosario– 1-1, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB
Matt Waldron– 3 IP, 4 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Robert Suarez– 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Five runs in the second inning were too much for El Paso Chihuahuas to overcome, as they fell to the Tacoma Rainiers. Matt Waldron surrendered an early lead with five in second and an additional run in the third. El Paso only got three hits and went down quietly. Will Myers did walk three times and is expected to join the Padres on Monday.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 12-13) (50-44)
Tirso Ornelas– 5-6, 3 R, 3 RBI
Yorman Rodriguez– 1-5, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K
Reggie Lawson– 1.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
Kevin Kopps– 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K
Four runs in the eighth tied it for the San Antonio Missions but fell short in extras to the Midland RockHounds. Tirso Ornelas showed out on Sunday, getting five hits, two of which were doubles. Reggie Lawson put the Missions in an early hole by walking couple batters and not completing two innings. Mason Fox followed by keeping San Antonio in the game but got tagged with four runs in the fifth inning. In the eighth inning, Yorman Rodriguez came up in the clutch and launched a three-run home run to tie the game at 10. San Antonio scored two runs in the 10th on walks, but Osvaldo Hernandez couldn’t complete the comeback.
High-fives all around for Tirso Ornelas!

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 8-2) (41-55)
Robert Hassell III- 1-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 3 K
Joshua Mears– 1-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K
Jackson Wolf– 5 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 5 H, 9 K, 1 BB
Edwuin Bencomo– 2 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 K
A dominant bullpen performance for Fort Wayne lifted the TinCaps to victory Sunday. Jackson Wolf delivered a nice start that warranted the win after fanning nine Peoria Chiefs. Fort Wayne trailed 2-1 entering the fourth inning but never looked back after Jarryd Dale tied the game with an RBI single. Top prospects Robert Hassell III and Joshua Mears displayed their power with solo home runs in the next innings that put the TinCaps in front.

Including this one.

Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 11-9) (57-39)
James Wood– 4-5, 2 R, 3 RBI
Jackson Merrill– 0-5, 1 R, 2 K
Bodi Rascon- 1.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 K, 1 BB
Aaron Holliday- 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 K, 1 BB
The Storm won a thriller to cap Sunday on the farm and were led by Padres standout prospect James Wood, who homered in the first inning on his way to four hits. Bodi Ascon struggled as the starter, getting chase in the second inning while allowing five runs. Storm pitching settled in until the sixth inning when Danny Denz allowed a three-run home run that brought home two of Ruben Galindo‘s runs. In the bottom of the seventh, Marcos Castanon and Alejandro drove in a run on singles to tie the game before Justin Farmer delivered the dagger with a two-run double to give the Storm the lead for good.
