The Padres affiliates went 0-3 on Monday.

Here is a recap of Monday’s minor league action.

El Paso Chihuahuas


San Antonio Missions


Fort Wayne TinCaps


Lake Elsinore Storm


ACL Padres (Lost 5-3 vs ACL Rangers) (15-13 on the season)
L.J. Jones – (3-for-5) Double
Ismael Javier – (2-for-4) Triple, RBI
Braian Salazar – 3.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 4 K

The ACL Padres lost by a 5-3 score. Braian Salazar started for the third time this season and struggled, allowing two runs in the first, one in the second, and another in the fourth to knock him out of the game. Salazar did record four strikeouts, so it could be a good sign for the 18-year old southpaw. Aldo Leija and Zac Addikson pitched 2.1 scoreless innings in relief, and Miguel Valdez pitched two innings of one run ball.

The offense was led by LJ Jones’ three–hit day, in his fifth game as a member of the Padres organization. The former Cardinals draftee is now hitting .421 with three homers in 19 at-bats at the ACL level. Lamar King Jr and Ismael Javier both had multi-hit efforts, both driving in runs. The offense went 3-for-12 with runners in scoring position, but could not come back from the early deficit.

DSL Padres Gold (Lost 8-6 vs DSL Brewers 1) (2-2 on the season)
Alcides Hernandez – (4-for-5) RBI
Fraylin Severino – (1-for-1) 2-RBI Single
Dariel Polanco – 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 2 K

The DSL Gold Padres came back from a five-run deficit to take a 6-5 lead, but would lose the game 8-6. Starter Dariel Polanco allowed four runs in four innings, all runs coming off homers. The 18-year old right hander was making his second start of the year, and showed promise despite the runs allowed. Reliever Danny Ojeda was charged with the loss, allowing three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning thanks to four walks. It was the 19-year old’s season debut, but the command issues which plagued him last season showed up yet again.

The offense was led by catcher Alcides Hernandez, who went 4-for-5 with an RBI. Hernandez is now batting .778 this season, albeit in nine at-bats. He is showing promise as another catcher in the pipeline. Fraylin Severino had a late inning 2-RBI single which tied the game. The team had seven hits and walked an astonishing 12 times, but went 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position and ended a bases-loading rally in the eighth with a double play. The team got two runners on in the ninth, but would be unable to bring the runs across, stranding the tying run on base to end the game.

DSL Padres Brown (Lost 5-2 vs DSL White Sox) (1-3 on the season)
Yorvin Moria – (2-for-3) Run Scored
Jesmaylin Arias – (2-for-4)
Manuel Davila – 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 5 K

The DSL Padres Brown held a 2-1 lead going into the sixth inning, but a four-run sixth would lead to a 5-2 loss. Manuel Davila had a strong outing, allowing two hits and an unearned run across four innings, striking out five. Rowdy Mejia tossed a scoreless frame in relief, striking out the side. The loss landed on Joseph Herrera, who allowed three hits and four walks in his two innings of work, although none of the runs he allowed were earned thanks to a missed catch error.

The offense was led by designated hitter Yorvin Moria and Jesmayllin Arias’ multi-hit efforts, as Moria would score one of the two runs for the Padres. Outfielder Fabian Alcantara would also record an RBI single in the ballgame. All six hits for the Padres were singles, and the team would only walk three times in the game. The team’s 1-for-6 performance with runners in scoring position did not help their case, as they would drop the game by three runs.

El Paso: TBD
San Antonio: Victor Lizarraga (1-3, 3.60 ERA)
Fort Wayne: Enmanuel Pinales (1-3, 3.02 ERA)
Lake Elsinore: TBD
