San Diego Padres affiliates went 5-0 on Thursday. The Chihuahuas game was suspended in the seventh inning and will resume on Friday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (36-26 on the season)

The game was suspended due to lightning in the area. The game will resume tomorrow in the seventh inning, with El Paso trailing Las Vegas 10-4.  Esteury Ruiz is 3-for-3 in the game with two stolen bases, and Eguy Rosario has homered and doubled.


San Antonio Missions (Won 4-3) (32-26 on the season)

Thomas Milone– (2-for-3) Run, SB, K

Domingo Leyba– (2-for-4) 2B, Run, BB, K

Tirso Ornelas– (1-for-4) HR, 2 RBI, Run, K

Moises Lugo– 3 IP, 1 H, 5 K


The Missions walked it off in the ninth inning as Yorman Rodriguez hit a sac-fly to center to score Ripken Reyes with the winning run. San Antonio was wearing Uvalde jerseys to honor the lost lives in San Antonio a few weeks ago. Proceeds to the sales of the jerseys will go to the Robb School Memorial Fund.

Thomas Milone and Domingo Leyba both recorded multiple hits in the win, and Tirso Ornelas homered in the eighth inning to tie the game. The Missions got off to a slow start but provided enough offense to come away with the victory. Lake Bachar started the game and allowed three runs (one earned) in 2.2 innings pitched. He was relieved by Moises Lugo, who went three shutout innings and kept the Missions in the game. Lugo is 23 and owns a 2.43 ERA in 29.2 innings pitched in the Texas League. Tom Cosgrove earned the win after pitching a scoreless ninth for the Missions and is now 6-1 on the season.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 9-4) (24-36 on the season)

Matthew Acosta– (3-for-4) 2 RBI, BB, Run

Olivier Basabe– (2-for-4) RBI, BB, K

Lucas Dunn– (2-for-5) 2B, 2 RBI, 2 Runs

Jackson Wolf– 7 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, BB, 4 K (96 pitches- 66 strikes)


The TinCaps were victorious on the road as the team scored six runs in the first two innings and held on for a 9-4 win. Matthew Acosta led the offense with three hits and 2 RBI. Robert Hassell went 1-for-4 in the game with a stolen base, a walk and a run scored. Hassell owns a .866 OPS so far this 2022 season in the Midwest League. Olivier Basbae recorded two hits, and Lucas Dunn continues to hit well after promotion from Lake Elsinore. The right-handed hitter doubled and drove in two runs in the game.

Jackson Wolf started and went seven solid innings for the TinCaps. He allowed four earned runs but limited the Lugnuts. Ramon Perez and Ethan Routzahn recorded the last six outs in the game.


Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 5-2) (36-24 on the season)

Carlos Luis– (2-for-3) 2B, Run, RBI, BB

Max Ferguson– (2-for-3) RBI, BB, K, SB

Cole Cummings– (1-for-4) HR, RBI, Run, BB, 3 K

Ruben Galindo– 5 IP, 1 H, BB, 4 K (59 pitches- 37 strikes)


Lake Elsinore held on for a 5-2 win on the road in Modesto. The Storm made the most of their eight hits as the team got timely hitting and effective pitching for the win. Carlos Luis and Max Ferguson got two hits on the night, and Cole Cummings slugged his sixth homer of the season. James Wood returned to the Storm lineup and went 0-for-5 in the game after mission a few weeks with a wrist injury.

Ruben Galindo started the game and went five shutout innings. The 21-year-old right-hander has started four games and owns a 4.80 ERA this season in the Cal League. Aaron Holiday relived Galindo and threw three shutout innings himself.


ACL Padres (Won 7-1) (3-5 on the season)

Joshua Mears– (2-for-3) HR, RBI, 2 Runs, K

Edwin Rojas– (2-for-2) 2B, Run, RBI, BB

Rosman Verdugo– (1-for-1) HR, 2 RBI, Run

Adrian Luna– 4 IP, 3 H, ER, 6 BB, K


The ACL Padres got two homers in the game and beat a very good Texas ACL team on Thursday in Peoria. Josh Mears and Rosman Verdugo homered in the win. Mears is still in Arizona and should return to Fort Wayne soon. Edwin Rojas doubled and went 2-for-2 in the game.

Fernando Sanchez started the game and got the first two outs before giving way to Adrian Luna, who went four solid innings for the Padres. Australian Riley Yeatman earned the save for the Padres, recording the last three out of the game. The right-hander has excellent size and, at 18, could be a decent prospect in time.


DSL Padres (Won 4-2) (7-3 on the season)

Jose Sanabria– (2-for-4) K, SB

Maikoi Munoz- (1-for-4) Run, 3 K

Estuar Suero– (1-for-3) K

Jonney Rosario– 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 4 K


The DSL Padres continued their winning ways as the team held on to a 4-2 win over the Orioles DSL team. The Padres only managed four hits in the game but still got the job done. Jose Sanabria continues to swing a productive bat as the 19-year-old right-handed hitter got two hits and stole a base for the Padres. Estuar Suero is 16 and earned a hit on Thursday.

17-year-old Jonney Rosario started the game and went 4-2 solid innings. The right-handed pitcher owns a 3.12 ERA so far this season.
