El Paso Chihuahuas
Amarillo Sod Poodles (42-44) Lost 5-4
Three early runs by Midland were the difference in a 5-4 loss on Monday. Amarillo got one run in the eighth to pull close, but Peter Van Gansen was left stranded at second base in the ninth. Ivan Castillo lined out to left to end the game. Castillo was already 3-for-4 on the night when he made the last out. Jesse Scholtens was charged with the loss and is now 3-4 on the season with a 5.11 ERA. Dauris Valdez threw two scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 5.91 on the year.

Lake Elsinore Storm (44-43) Lost 5-4
The Storm lost in 10 innings by the score of 5-4 on Monday as Franklin Van Gurp was charged with the loss. In the game, three major league players were in action as Cory Seager and A.J. Pollock were playing for the Quakes and Travis Jankowski played for the Storm. Jankowski finished the game 1-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base. Gabe Mosser made his first start in the Cal League and threw six innings of ball, allowing three earned runs. He is an interesting prospect. The 23-year-old had success in the Midwest League but will now face more advanced hitters with the Storm. Eguy Rosario hit his fourth homer of the season in the seventh but grounded out with two men on in the last half of the 10th inning. The Storm rallied for one run in the frame but just came up short.

The DSL Padres won 4-3 over the DSL D-backs on Monday. Six-foot-seven right-handed pitcher Abismael Paulino toed the rubber and went 4 2/3 innings for the Padres. The 22-year-old is not a real huge prospect in the system but could advance to the desert if he continues to progress. 17-year-old Euribiel Angeles recorded two more hits and has a .799 OPS so far in the DSL. The infielder is a decent looking prospect in the system.
Euribiel Angeles– (2-5) Run, RBI, SB
