A slow day in the system as the San Diego Padres affiliates went 0-1 on the day.
Here is a recap of that lone game.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 3-2 to Tacoma Rainiers)

The El Paso Chihuahuas lost the only game of the day for Padres affiliates, 3-2 to the Tacoma Rainiers. Patrick Kivelehan had himself a day at the plate, tallying four hits, including the only two RBIs of the day for El Paso. Two of Kivelhan’s hits were for extra bases, as he hit a double and a home run.
Back-to-back games that @PatrickKivlehan has given us a 2-1 lead, this time it’s courtesy of a 2-Run HR!!
It’s also Kivlehan’s 3rd hit of the night
