The San Diego Padres affiliates went 2-2, as both the DSL Padres and the ACL Padres had off days.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 11-8 to Albuquerque) (34-26 on the season)
Taylor Kohlwey: (2-for-5), HR, 3 RBI, R
C.J. Abrams: (3-for-5), RBI, 2 R
Robinson Cano: (2-for-4), 2B, 2 RBI, R, BB, K
Eguy Rosario: (2-for-5), 2B, RBI, 2 R, SB
The El Paso Chihuahuas jumped out to an 8-1 lead after just two innings but could not score in the final seven frames, losing in a frustrating fashion. After just seven batters, the Chihuahuas led by six runs, including Taylor Kohlwey’s three-run home run.
Name a better duo, we’ll wait
— El Paso Chihuahuas (@epchihuahuas) June 13, 2022
The Chihuahuas finished with 14 hits, as five different players had multi-hit days, including three from C.J. Abrams. Robinson Cano brought home his first two RBIs with a second-inning double, which proved to be El Paso’s final runs. Ben Miller came into the game in the third inning, giving up four runs to bring Albuquerque back into the game. A trio of two-out singles off Ian Krol in the eighth inning put the Isotopes ahead before a two-run blast off Krol gave the Isotopes a comfortable lead. With the wind taken out from El Paso’s sails, the Chihuahuas went down in order in the ninth.
San Antonio Missions (Won 5-3 vs. Corpus Christi) (30-25 on the season)
Reggie Lawson: 4.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 9 K (81 pitches, 48 strikes)
Connor Hollis: (3-for-4), 2B, R, BB, SB
Juan Zabala: (2-for-4), R, 2 SB, K
Kelvin Alarcon: (2-for-5), 2B
The Missions got a fantastic game from starter Reggie Lawson and enough early offense to withstand a late rally from Corpus Christi. Lawson allowed just one hit, a fifth-inning single, in 4.2 shutout innings. Lawson did struggle with control as he walked four batters, but he also struck out nine. The Missions scored three times on a throwing error by Hooks third baseman Bryan Arias, giving San Antonio a three-run lead in the second. Ripken Reyes scored on a wild pitch to add on to the Missions’ lead in the fourth. Domingo Leyba brought Connor Hollis home with a single in the seventh, putting San Antonio up five runs. Corpus Christi scored three runs off of Mason Fox in the eighth inning, but Luis Felipe picked up the save to secure the win.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 5-3 to Lake County) (22-35 on the season)
Brandon Komar: 4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (42 pitches, 33 strikes)
Efrain Contreras: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (26 pitches, 17 strikes)
Robert Hassell III: (2-for-4), HR, 2B, 2 RBI, R, K
Brandon Valenzuela: (1-for-3), BB, K
Efrain Contreras, Brandon Komar, and Felix Minjarez combined to carry a no-hitter through seven innings. Lake County’s Petey Halpin broke the no-hit bid up with a bunt single, and it all went wrong from there. Robert Hassell’s seventh-inning home run and Anthony Vilar’s sacrifice fly appeared to be enough for the TinCaps, who led 3-0 after seven innings. Minjarez allowed a run in the eighth, but Fort Wayne still led by two runs. Luke Boyd allowed three runs, and Fred Schlichtholz gave up one in a dramatic collapse for the TinCaps. Fort Wayne went down in order in the ninth in a frustrating game.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 6-2 vs. San Jose Giants) (34-23 on the season)
Jesus Gonzalez: 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 7 K (80 pitches, 56 strikes)
Victor Duarte: (2-for-3), HR, 2B, 3 RBI, R, HBP
Carlos Luis: (2-for-4), HR, RBI, R, K
Charlis Aquino: (2-for-3), BB, SB
Lake Elsinore jumped into an early lead and rode Jesus Gonzalez to their third consecutive win. Carlos Luis and Victor Duarte hit back-to-back home runs to start off the second inning before Max Ferguson scored on a balk. An error from San Jose, one of four committed by the Giants, brought one Nerwilian Cedeno. The four runs would prove plenty as Jesus Gonzalez was dealing. The left-hander worked seven strong innings, striking out seven while allowing just one earned run. Three Giants singles in the fifth inning was the only time San Jose got on the board against Gonzalez. Duarte doubled in two insurance runs in the eighth, securing the win for the Storm and Gonzalez.
