The San Antonio Missions were down early in the game as the RoughRiders put two quick runs on the board against starter Brandon Komar. Komar settled down to pitch two scoreless innings after that but found himself back in a hole in the fourth inning. After getting a groundball out to start the inning, six straight Frisco hitters got on base before Komar could get Dustin Harris to hit an RBI groundout. The Missions mustered up just one run in response on an RBI double in the eighth inning by Thomas Milone.

Jonney Rosario: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 8 K, Win
Home runs in back-to-back innings by Adrian Perez and Oliver Carrillo, respectively, lifted the Padres to their 15th victory of the season. However, it was pitching that really guided the Padres to a victory. Jonney Rosario earned his first victory by striking out eight batters, while Juan Arias got the final five outs to finish the game for the Padres.
AZL Padres (Lost 7-5 against AZL Royals) (9-13 on the season)
Albert Fabian: (2-for-4) 2 RBI, R, 2B
Kelvin Alarcon: (1-for-3) RBI, 2B, K
Ruben Salinas: (1-for-3) RBI, 2 R, 2B, K, BB, SB
Jarlin Susana: 3 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 3 B, 6 K, No Decision
The Padres’ offense, much like their big-league counterpart, struggled mightily in today’s matchup against the Royals, scoring just one run in the first seven innings. The Royals, meanwhile, helped themselves against Padres pitchers, scoring at least one run off of every Padre who toed the rubber. It wasn’t until the eighth inning that the Padres began to generate some offense, scoring four runs thanks to back-to-back walks and three doubles. This still wasn’t enough to claw back to victory, and the Padres were left without their tenth victory.
