San Diego Padres affiliates went 4-3 on Tuesday.

Here’s a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 6-2 vs Sugar Land) (31-44 on the season)
Tirso Ornelas – (1-for-4) 3-Run Home Run, 5 RBI
Oscar Mercado – (4-for-6) 2 RBI
Jackson Wolf – 4.1 IP, 6 H. 5 R, 2 BB, 3 K (84 pitches, 53 strikes)

The Chihuahuas certainly barked tonight in Round Rock, scoring six times in the first and racking up 15 hits and nine walks in a winning effort. Tirso Ornelas had a massive game despite only one hit, driving in five runs. Cal Mitchell would also record a mammoth three-run homer in the first. Clay Dungan would break a 7-7 tie in the sixth with a two-run double, and the Chihuahuas would claw in five runs in the ninth on three bases-loaded walks and a two-run single by Oscar Mercado.

Jackson Wolf took the mound and was strong through the first four innings, allowing only two runs. However, he would run out of gas in the fifth, allowing three runs. Sean Reynolds would allow the tying runs to score over 0.2 innings in relief of Wolf. Glenn Otto would allow one run in an inning, and Lake Bachar would post yet another scoreless outing, now the owner of a 2.08 ERA in June.


San Antonio Missions (Won 8-2 vs Midland) (32-37 on the season)
Brandon Valenzuela – (3-for-5) Home Run, 5 RBI
Cole Cummings – (2-for-3) Home Run, 2 RBI, 4 Runs
Jared Kollar – 6.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 6 K (93 pitches, 62 strikes)

The breakout season for Jared Kollar continues, as the right-hander pitched into the seventh inning for the first time this season. Kollar allowed only one hit, punching out six batters along the way. Kollar continued to get his outs on the ground, with seven groundouts recorded and a solid ball-to-strike ratio.

Offensively, Brandon Valenzuela was the star of the night, as the Missions catcher recorded a three-run homer and two more RBI hits, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. Cole Cummings and Ray-Patrick Didder would also homer in the game, with Cummings scoring a whopping four runs.

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 8-4 vs Dayton) (30-40 on the season)
Jay Beshears – (1-for-4) Double, Run Scored
Romeo Sanabria – (2-for-4) 2 Doubles
Enmanuel Pinales – 3.1 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 3 BB, 3 K (81 pitches, 48 strikes)

It was not a good day for Enmanuel Pinales on the mound, as the right-hander would not make it out of the fourth inning, having surrendered six runs in the outing. Pinales would walk three and strike out three batters, but an inability to record the third out of innings would be the biggest issue. Pinales would run out of gas in the fourth, allowing four runs and recording one out in the inning. Reliever Joan Gonzalez’s efforts were worth noting, as the right-hander tossed 2.2 scoreless innings.

It was a productive day for the offense, as they would record eight hits, five of which went for extra bases. Romeo Sanabria would record two doubles, and Jay Beshears would drive in a run with a double. Griffin Doersching would record a late RBI of his own, and Homer Bush Jr stole his 34th base of the season in the loss. Ethan Salas went 0-for-3 in the game but drove in a run on an RBI groundout.


Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 3-1 vs Rancho Cucamonga) (34-34 on the season)
Leodalis De Vries – (1-for-3) Go-ahead 2-Run Home Run
Wyatt Hoffman – (1-for-3) RBI Double
Luis Gutierrez – 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K (83 pitches, 56 strikes)

Leodalis De Vries would hit his first home run of the season in this game, a towering two-run home run that jolted the Storm to a 3-1 win. De Vries’ blast hit off the left-field foul pole, electrifying the environment in Lake Elsinore. Wyatt Hoffman would also record an RBI with a fourth-inning double, and the team’s 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position was De Vries’ big homer.

Luis Gutierrez started for the Storm and tossed his best start of the season, tossing six shutout innings while striking out six. Gutierrez worked out of early jams and wound up retiring eight of the last nine he faced. Reliever Johan Moreno would earn the win with 1.2 innings of one-run ball, while Xavier Ruiz recorded a four-out save with his eighth consecutive scoreless outing.


I'd like this amount to  

ACL Padres (Lost 9-1 vs ACL Rangers) (18-21 on the season)
Colton Vincent – (1-for-3) Run Scored
Hugo Sanchez – (1-for-3) RBI Triple
Aldo Lejia – 1.1 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 2 K

The ACL Padres’ pitching staff struggled in the game, walking 11 batters in seven innings. Starter Aldo Lejia recorded only four outs while allowing four runs. Lejia walked two and allowed four hits. Reliever Miguel Valdez took the brunt of the damage done against the bullpen, allowing four runs in an inning of work. Adler Cecil would punch out five in an impressive two innings of work in relief.

The offense for the Padres had something of a cold night in the desert, scoring one run on four hits while walking six times. Hugo Sanchez would have the lone RBI for the Padres with an RBI triple, as the team went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Spence Coffman would steal two bases in the game, and Colton Vincent went 1-for-3 with a run scored.


DSL Padres Gold (Won 11-3 vs DSL Pirates Black) (10-6 on the season)
Frailyn Severino – (2-for-3) Double, 3 RBI
Darian Castillo – (1-for-3) 2 RBI
Ibrahyn Jimenez – 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R (0 ER), 1 BB, 1 K

The Padres Gold struck big and early, scoring seven runs in the first and ten in the first three. The Padres worked good at-bats, walking 11 times in the game and getting four hits with runners in scoring position. Frailyn Severino had a productive day’s work, hitting a two-RBI double and recording three RBI in the game, Leadoff man Darian Castillo drove in two runs, and Yoiber Ocopio walked three times.

Ibrahym Jimenez started the game for the Padres and tossed three quality innings, allowing two unearned runs on four hits. While the left-hander has a below-average K/9 rate this season, he has shown an innate ability to limit walks and baserunners at his young age. The efforts of reliever Roberto Burgos were also on display, as he struck out three in a scoreless inning.


DSL Padres Brown (Lost 8-2 vs DSL Athletics) (3-12 on the season)
Jhojan Downer – (1-for-3) Run Scored
Yorvin Morla – (1-for-2) RBI Double
Edinson Hernandez – 0 IP, 1 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 0 K

Edinson Hernandez was ambushed for four runs in the first, not recording an out in this game. The right-hander walked three batters, never really settling in. He walked the bases loaded before being relieved, and reliever Dionicio Nova allowed all three bequeathed runners to score. Nova would allow three runs of his own across two innings, and Joseph Herrera had the best pitching performance for the Padres Brown, tossing four frames of one-run baseball, striking out five.

The offense had six baserunners in the game, with Yorvin Morla recording the team’s lone extra-base hit. Morla would drive in one of the team’s runs with an RBI double, and Fabian Alcantara would drive in the second and final Padres run with a sacrifice fly. The team would go 1-for-4 in their limited opportunities with runners in scoring position.
