Here is a recap of the day’s events.

El Paso Chihuahuas (13-16)


The El Paso Chihuahuas will begin their series against the Oklahoma City Dodgers on Thursday. 

San Antonio Missions (Lost 9-1 to MidLand) (16-16 on the season)

CJ Abrams– 2-4, 1 R

Taylor Kohlwey– 1-3, 2 BB, 1 K

Reggie Lawson– 1.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Mason Fox– 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K

The combination of a couple of errors and a few base hits did not bode well for the Missions against the RockHounds Wednesday, as the Missions were blown out 9-1. Early errors with top right-handed pitching prospect Reggie lawson on the mound dug San Antonio an early 4-0 deficit, one they would not overcome.

San Antonio batters only tallied four hits, and two of them came off the bat of Abrams, the Padres’ top-hitting prospect. The Missions’ only run of the game came on a wild pitch Jack Suwinski swung and missed to strikeout.

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 3-2 to Lake County) (13-18 on the season)

Tirso Ornelas– 1-4, 3 K

Andres Ilarraza- 2-3, 1 R, 1 BB

Ethan Elliott– 5 IP, 2 ER, 7 H, 5 K

Brandon Komar– 3 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 K

The Fort Wayne TinCaps lost a low-scoring battle to Lake County Captains 3-2. Ethan Elliott got the start for Fort Wayne Wednesday and once again competed well with five innings of two-run ball. His ERA for the season is now at 2.02. In the sixth inning, Fort Wayne overcame the two-run deficit when Dwanya Williams-Sutton hit a triple with two outs. Unfortunately, the Captains responded in the next half-inning with an unearned run off of Brandon Komar to regain the lead for good. 

Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 8-5 over Rancho Cucamonga) (15-17 on the season)

Robert Hassell III- 2-4, 2 R

Brandon Valenzuela– 4-5, 2 R, 4 RBI, 1 K

Carlos Guarate– 4.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 3 K, 3 BB

Michell Miliano– 1 IP, 0 R, 2 K

Brandon Valenzuela stole the show in Lake Elsinore’s 8-5 win over the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Wednesday. His four-hit and four-RBI performance powered the Storm offense past a big fifth inning for the Quakes. Carlos Guarate was cruising in his start until the fifth inning when the first four batters of the inning reached for the Quakes. The 3-0 lead for the Storm turned into a 4-3 deficit quickly. In the bottom half of the fifth, Valenzuela singled home two runners to regain the lead for Lake Elsinore, and they never looked back.
