San Diego Padres affiliates went 1-3 on Tuesday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 9-4) (10-13 on the season)

Brian O’Grady– 0-for-5, 1 K

Luis Campusano– 1-for-4, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K

Pedro Avila– 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 3 K, 2 BB

Mason Thompson– 1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 3 K

Seven early runs led the way to a 9-4 victory for the El Paso Chihuahuas over the Oklahoma City Dodgers. Despite the strong offensive performance, the Chihuahuas received zero production from Brian O’Grady, who entered Tuesday swinging a very hot bat. Ben Ruta belted two doubles and drove in two runs to bring his average up to .238 on the season. Luis Campusano is starting to hit the ball a little better after his slow start, as he also added a double. Patrick Kivlehan put the cap on the game with a home run in the sixth inning, his seventh in Triple-A on the year. Pedro Avila and Mason Thompson recorded the final six outs, all via the strikeout to close the door.

San Antonio Missions (Lost 10-3) (11-14 on the season)

Eguy Rosario– 2-for-4, 2 RBI, 1 R, 2 K

Kyle Overstreet– 1-for-4, 1 R, 1 K

Aaron Leasher– .1 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Nick Kuzia– 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

The Missions could not overcome a five-run first inning in their loss to the Springfield Cardinals. Aaron Leasher did not complete the first inning, but he also did not receive help from his defense, as Eguy Rosario made what eventually became a three-run error. Rosario did have a good day at the plate, however. He was the only player to notch multiple hits and got one of the two extra-base hits on his sixth-inning home run. 

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 7-4) (10-14 on the season)

Seamus Curran– 2-for-3, 2 RBI, 2 BB

Jonny Homza- 1-for-4, 1 RBI, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K

Moises Lugo– 4 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 3 K, 3 BB

Sam Keating– 1 IP, 3 ER, 1 H, 1 BB

Three runs in the ninth inning broke the TinCaps’ back in their 7-4 loss. Sam Keating allowed a three-run home run to Trey Cabbage with two outs in the top of the ninth inning in a tough loss. Seamus Curran swung the hot bat for the TinCaps Tuesday, getting on base four times with two singles. Jonny Homza and Luis Almanzar also reached twice in the losing effort.

Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 6-1) (11-13 on the season)

Robert Hassell III- 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Joshua Mears– 0-2, 1 K

Miguel Rondon– 2.1 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 3 K, 1 BB

Ramon Perez– 2 .1 IP,1 H, 0 R, 3 K, 1 BB

The Lake Elsinore Storm offense was non-existent Tuesday night in a blowout 7-1 loss. The lone bright spot is the solo home run from Robert Hassell III in the ninth inning to score the only run of the game. Hassell III accounted for half of the teams’ hits as he also added a double. All four hits went for extra bases.
