Here’s a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahua (won 12-2 at Las Vegas, 26-28 on the season)

Jantzen Witte: 2-for-4, HR, 5 RBI, 2 R

Reiss Knehr: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 K, W (4-1) (39 pitches, 27 strikes)

The Chihuahua’s offense exploded on Thursday, scoring 12 runs and taking an early lead to pull away quickly. Three first-inning runs courtesy of a Preston Tucker RBI single and a Jantzen Witte two-run single was all El Paso needed in the game. José Iglesias doubled in a run in the second inning to make it 4-0. A barrage of extra-base hits scored five runs in the fifth with a two-run homer for each Tucker, and Taylor Kohlwey and David Dahl had an RBI double. Witte hit a three-run home run in the sixth to make it 12-0 for his 12th RBI of the series. Pedro Avila started for El Paso, going three shutout innings, with five of his nine outs being strikeouts. Reiss Knehr also threw three shutout innings while earning the win.


San Antonio Missions (won 2-0 at Frisco, 26-22 on the season)

Tirso Ornelas: 1-for-4, HR, RBI, R

Yorman Rodriguez: 1-for-4, HR, RBI, R

Jackson Wolf: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 8 K, 2 BB, W (4-5) (91 pitches, 64 strikes)

Justin Lopez: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 R (24 pitches, 11 strikes)

The Missions won a low-scoring affair in Frisco, with both runs coming in the third inning. Tirso Ornelas and Yorman Rodriguez hit back-to-back home runs for San Antonio. Jackson Wolf, the Padres’ No. 16 overall prospect, looked phenomenal, throwing six shutout innings and striking out eight. Frisco led off the bottom of the ninth with two straight singles off Nick Hernandez, but a strikeout and double play ended the game. Both teams had five hits apiece and were a combined 0-7 with runners in scoring position.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (lost 1-0 at Fort Wayne, 20-28 on the season)

Jackson Merrill: 1-for-5

Marcos Castañon: 2-for-4

Adam Mazur: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 K, 0 BB, ND (76 pitches, 52 strikes)

Aaron Holiday: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 1 R, L (1-3) (10 pitches, 5 strikes)

The TinCaps lost 1-0 in a pitcher’s duel. Adam Mazur, the Padres’ No. 6 overall prospect, pitched six shutout innings and looked very solid. Justin Farmer and Nathan Martorella both doubled, but the team was 0-for-10 with RISP. Aaron Holiday came in to pitch in the top of the ninth and allowed a walk followed by the go-ahead (and game-winning) double.

Ethan Salas: 0-for-3, BB, 2 K

Robby Snelling: 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R (1 ER), 8 K, 0 BB, W (4-0) (78 pitches, 55 strikes)

Lake Elsinore won 4-2 on Thursday in yet another stellar outing for Padres’ No. 5 prospect Robby Snelling. Snelling pitched the first four innings shutout before allowing two runs in the fifth, one of them being unearned. His ERA has dropped to 1.23. The Storm got on the board early with a Graham Pauley home run in the first. A Charles Aquino single in the second scored another run, followed by a Pauley double to bring in one more. Aquino doubled in the fourth to make it 4-0. The bullpen threw four no-hit innings to keep the score 4-2 after Snelling came out.
