The Chihuahuas were the only Padres affiliate to be victorious on Tuesday, as San Antonio, Fort Wayne, and Lake Elsinore all lost.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.

Ivan Castillo– (2-for-5) 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 BB
Luis Campusano– (2-for-4) 1 R, 2 BB
Daniel Camarena- 5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Parker Markel– 1 IP, 1 BB, 2 K
In a low-scoring rock fight, the El Paso Chihuahuas survived in extra innings against the Tacoma Rainiers. The Chihuahuas scored seven runs in the tenth inning to win 8-2. Daniel Camarena started for El Paso gave the Chihuahuas five solid innings of work, only allowing one run. Parker Markel, Evan Miller, and Mason Thompson combined to pitch four scoreless innings to get it to extra innings. Thompson was credited with the win.

El Paso batted around in the tenth when they scored seven runs. Patrick Kivlehan hit into two of the innings three outs, one of which drove in the go-ahead run a sac fly. Patience was key in the tenth, as six Chihuahuas were walked in the inning.
The Chihuahuas do not play Wednesday and will resume action on Thursday when MacKenzie Gore will take the rubber for El Paso.
San Antonio Missions (Lost 6-1) (4-3 on season)
C.J. Abrams- (2-for-4) 1 K
Jose Azocar– (3-for-4)
Adrian Martinez– 4 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 2 K
Tom Cosgrove– 1 IP, 1 BB, 3 K
The San Antonio Missions were inefficient on offense, as they only scored one run on ten hits in their 6-1 loss to the Midland RockHounds. Kyle Overstreet homered in the fourth inning for their only run of the game.

Entering the bottom of the sixth, the Missions only trailed by one run. Midland scored two runs in both the sixth and seventh innings to pull away. Sam Williams surrendered the runs in the sixth, while Henry Henry coughed up two in the seventh inning.
Caleb Boushley will start for the Missions Wednesday.
Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 3-0) (3-3 on season)
Kelvin Melean– (1-or-3) 1 K
Olivier Basabe– (1-for-3) 1 K
Ethan Elliott– 5 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 6 K, 1 BB
Edwuin Bencomo– 2 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 4 K
Fort Wayne did not come to play at the plate on Tuesday. The Lake County Captains pitching staff shut down the TinCaps, limiting them to just two hits. Both hits came off Captains’ relief pitcher Nathan Ocker. Each pitcher who threw for Fort Wayne (Ethan Elliott, Edwin Bencomo, and Brandon Komar) allowed just one run.
The TinCaps have not announced their starter for Wednesday against the Captains.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 11-7) (5-2 on season)
Robert Hassell III- (1-for-3) 1 R, 1 K, 2 BB
Joshua Mears– (1-for-5) 3 K
Carlos Guarate– 4 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 5 K
Gabe Morales– 3 IP, 1 H, 6 K
A big sixth inning and five errors came back to haunt the Storm in the second straight loss after starting 5-0 to begin the season. The Inland Empire 66ers scored six runs in the sixth inning to break a 5-5 tie. The five errors were committed by three players, as Brandon Valenzuela and Euribiel Angeles each committed two errors. On a positive note, Robert Hassell III got on base three more times. The young outfielder is currently getting on base at a .486 clip in his first taste of professional baseball. Jack Stronach recorded two hits and drove in three runs, two of which coming on his first-inning home run.
