The El Paso Chihuahuas were off on Wednesday, and only one affiliate for the San Diego Padres achieved victory.

The San Diego Padres affiliates went 1-2 on the evening.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.

 

El Paso Chihuahuas (18-23 on the season)

El Paso had the day off and will welcome the Round Rock Express to their home stadium. Ryan Weathers will take the mound for the Chihuahuas.

 

San Antonio Missions  (Lost 10-9 to RoughRiders) (23-20 on the season)

Allen Cordoba: 3-for-5, HR, 3 RBI, R, CS

Jack Suwinski: 1-for-5, HR, R, RBI

Chandler Seagle: 2-for-4, 2 RBI, R, 2B

Aaron Leasher: 5 IP, 3 R, ER, BB, 4 K (No Decision)

Nick Kuzia: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K (Blown Save, Loss)

In a back-and-forth match, Frisco took an initial lead off of Leasher with a three-run first inning.

Three innings later, San Antonio ambushed Frisco starter Yerry Rodriguez for four runs in the fourth inning. Kyle Overstreet hit a two-run single and, after a strikeout of Suwinski, Cordoba hit his first home run since 2019.

Six runs later, San Antonio had a comfortable 8-1 lead going into the eighth inning.

The lead didn’t last long. The RoughRiders scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning off of Carlos Belen.

Jack Suwinski added an extra run with his 12th home run of the year, but the RoughRiders scored four more runs off of Nick Kuzia to steal a victory from the Missions.

 

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Won 8-0 against Cubs) (20-23 on the season)

Agustin Ruiz: 1-for-4, 2 RBI, R, 2B, BB, 2 K

Justin Lopez: 1-for-4, RBI, R, 2B, 2 K

Jawuan Harris: 1-for-3, 2 RBI, R, BB, K, SB

Gabe Mosser: 7 IP, H, BB, 5 K (Win)

Felix Minjarez: 2 IP, H, BB, 5 K

For six innings, the game between the TinCaps and Cubs was deadlocked at zero runs apiece. Mosser and Max Bain had both picked six scoreless innings to keep the opposing offenses in check.

Then the seventh inning rolled around, and Bain was pulled from the game. Against Hunter Bigge, Fort Wayne opened the floodgates.

Justin Lopez slapped an RBI double to bring home the first run of the game. After Luis Almanzar struck out for the second out of the inning, Fort Wayne scored six more runs on four walks, two doubles, a hit by pitch, and an error.

Minjarez pitched the final two innings to close out the game and the win for Fort Wayne.

 

Lake Elsinore Storm  (Lost 4-0 to Nuts) (21-22 on the season)

Robert Hassell III: 1-for-3, 2 BB, SB

Jordy Barley: 1-for-2, 3 BB, SB, CS, E

Noel Vela: 4 IP, H, 2 R, ER, 4 BB, 2 K (Loss)

Connor Lehmann: 2 IP, 2 H, 3 K

Jose Garcia: 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, BB

Despite taking ten walks and getting four hits, Lake Elsinore was shut out by Modesto and have now lost three of their last four games.

As a team, Lake Elsinore went 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position and couldn’t crack any of the five pitchers Modesto placed on the mound.

The Storm loaded the bases in the fourth, fifth, and ninth inning but failed to push across a run to crack the goose egg.
