San Diego Padres affiliates went 3-4 on Friday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.

Brett Sullivan– (1-for-5) HR, 2 RBI, Run

Gabe Mosser– 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 5 K (87 pitches- 52 strikes)


The El Paso Chihuahuas have a left-handed hitter that you probably never heard of before. Nate Mondou is a 29-year-old career minor leaguer who is tearing it up in Triple-A. Mondou went 4-for-5 on Friday and is hitting .370 in June. Oscar Mercado and Brett Sullivan each homered in the game on Friday. Every member of the Chihuahuas starting nine recorded a hit except for Kevin Plawecki, who went 0-for-2 with two walks.

Gabe Mosser started the game and went five strong innings, allowing four runs. Paul Fry threw a scoreless inning in relief, and Austin Davis picked up his sixth save in the 2024 season.


San Antonio Missions (Lost 11-3 to Corpus Christi) (28-32 on the season)

Juan Zabala– (1-for-3) HR, 2 RBI, Run, BB, K

Jarryd Dale– (1-for-4) HR, RBI, K

Robbie Tenerowicz– (2-for-2) Run, 2 BB

Ryan Bergert– 2.2 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, BB, 4 BB, 4 K (63 strikes- 45 balls)


The Missions got behind early and never came close in an 11-3 loss to the Hooks. Ryan Bergert was knocked around for six earned runs in 2.2 innings pitched. Bergert actually coughed up nine in his appearance, but three went down as unearned runs. Omar Cruz threw 4.1 innings in relief and struck out seven batters, allowing two earned runs.

Juan Zabala homered and drove in a pair in the loss. Jarryd Dale also homered as the Australian native went 1-for-4 in the game. Robbie Tennerowicz recorded two hits and walked twice for the Missions.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 3-2 to Lake County in 10 innings) (26-35 on the season)

Devin Ortiz– (2-for-4) Run, K

Kai Murphy– (1-for-3) RBI, BB, 2 K

Nerwilian Cedeno- (1-for-3) 2 BB, K

Henry Baez– 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 3 K (98 pitches- 57 strikes)


Lake County pushed across a run in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game and one run in the 10th to walk it off against the TinCaps. David Morgan blew the save in the 9th and allowed the runner from second to score in the 10th for the Captains. Henry Baez started the game for Fort Wayne, went 5.2 innings, and was in line for the win.

Devin Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a run in the loss. Ethan Salas struck out with two out in the 10th and Homer Bush Jr. on third base. Salas was 0-for-5 in the game with three strikeouts. The 18-year-old catcher is hitting .183 on the season. The TinCaps were 1-for-11, with runners in scoring position in the game.


I'd like this amount to  

Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 5-2 over Stockton) (30-29 on the season)

Ryan Wilson– (2-for-4) 3b, Run

Romeo Sanabria– (2-for-3) Run, RBI, BB

Leodalis De Vries-(1-for-2) 2B, 2 Runs, RBI, 2 BB, SB

Eric Yost– 5 IP, 4 H, BB, 4 K (67 pitches- 44 strikes)


The Storm got some great pitching on Friday as Ian Koenig and Eric Yist combined to throw a shutout through the first eight innings. Koenig started and went three innings, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out four. Yost then went the next five, scattering four hits and a walk while striking out four. He was credited with the win. Thomas Balboni Jr had a rough ninth giving up two runs in the inning.

Leodalis De Vries was 1-for-2 with a double, stolen base, RBI, and two runs scored. Romeo Sanabria continues to be productive, going 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI. The first baseman owns a .937 OPS so far this season. Ryan Wilson tripled and scored a run in the win.


ACL Padres (Lost 10-9 to ACL Dodgers) (16-15 on the season)

L.J. Jones– (3-for-5) HR, Run, 5 RBI

Spence Coffman– (2-for-4) 2 Runs, BB, SB

Kaden Hollow– (2-for-4) HR, 2B, 3 Runs, 2 RBI, BB

Jesus Lopez– 3 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 3 K


A grand slam off the bat of Eastlake High’s L.J. Jones was huge for the Padres, but the bullpen imploded in the bottom of the 9th, resulting in a walk-off for the ACL Dodgers. Jone is a 24-year-old first baseman who was a fifth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2020 out of Long Beach State. Jones should be in Lake Elsinore soon and could even make the jump to Fort Wayne, given his experience in the minors. He has played as high as Double-A. Kaden Hollow also homered in the game for the Padres and was 2-for-4 with three runs scored.

Abraham Parra started the game and allowed three runs in two innings of work. Jesus Lopez relieved him and threw three scoreless innings for the Padres. The Padres led 9-4 headed to the bottom of the 9th. Henry Martinez and Maikel Miralles were charged with the six runs. Miralles got two outs in the inning, but a two-out knock won it for the Dodgers.



DSL Padres Brown (Lost 9-5 to DSL A’s) (1-6 on the season)

Joan Sierra– (1-for-4) HR, 2 Runs, 2 RBIs, BB, K

Juan Martinez-(1-for-2) 2B, RBI, 2 BB

Yorvin Morla– (1-for-4) 2 RBIs

Cristian Navarro– 2.2 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K (


The DSL Padres Brown team continues to struggle as they lost to the A’s by the score of 9-5. The team fell behind 5-0 early but rallied to make it a 5-4 game in the bottom of the third. The A’s broke it open in the 6th as Joseph Hererra was knocked around for three earned runs. Joan Sierra homered in the game and drove in a pair during the loss.


DSL Padres Gold (Won 3-1 over DSL Blue Jays) (4-4 on the season)

Gustavo Marquez– (1-for-4) RBI, 2 K

Eduarlin Tejada- (1-for-1) RBI

Eddson Martinez– (3-for-3) 2 Runs, 2 SB

Jose De La Rosa– 3 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 K


Two runs in the top of the 7th inning pushed the Padres DSL Gold team over the Blue Jays early Friday morning. Eduarlin Tejada singled in two runs with one out in the inning. The two runs gave the Padres a 3-0 lead at that point, and they never looked back. Jose De La Rosa threw three innings of scoreless ball striking out two. Anderson Ortiz earned the win as he struck out six in 3.2 innings pitched.
