San Diego Padres affiliates went 2-3 on Saturday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 9-3 over Alburquerque) (17-21 on the season)

Tim Locastro– (2-for-5) 2B, Run, RBI, K

Cal Mitchell– (2-for-3) 2 2B, 2 RBI, Run, BB

Brett Sullivan– (2-for-4) HR, Run, RBI, BB

Jackson Wolf– 6 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 7 K (96 pitches- 58 strikes)


El Paso got up early on the Isotopes and never looked back. Jackson Wolf surrendered three early runs in the first, but the Chihuahuas responded with a four-run second inning, and the left-handed pitcher cruised the rest of his outing. Wolf went six innings and struck out seven in the game. Alek Jacob and Austin Davis held the lead, and Nick Hernandez got the last three outs of the game.

Cal Mitchell doubled twice in the win and drove in two runs for El Paso. Brett Sullivan slugged his fifth homer of the season. Eguy Rosario hit his first homer of the year in the PCL, and Tim Locastro went 2-for-5 with a double. Each Chihuahua starter recorded a hit in the game except for Graham Pauley, who went 0-for-3 in the contest.


San Antonio Missions (Lost 12-2 to Frisco) (14-17 on the season)

Ripken Reyes– (2-for-3) RBI, K

Brandon Valenzuela– (1-for-5) Run, K

Juan Zabala– (1-for-3) BB, 2 K

Victor Lizarraga-3 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (74 pitches- 50 strikes)


The Missions got pummeled on Saturday in Frisco by the score of 12-2. Victor Lizarraga didn’t have his best stuff as the South Bay native coughed up five earned runs in three innings of work. Omar Cruz came in and allowed two runs in 1.2 innings of work out of the pen,

Ripken Reyes led the team offensively with two hits in the game. Juan Zabala walked in three at-bats, and Brandon Valenzuela scored a run and went 1-for-5. As a team, the Missions struck out 11 times as each Mission batter struck out except for Cole Cummings.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 4-3 to West Michigan) (11-21 on the season)

Homer Bush Jr.-(2-for-4) 2B, Run, 2 K

Devin Ortiz-(1-for-3) RBI, Run, 2 K

Albert Fabian– (1-for-4) 2 RBI, K

Dylan Lesko– 3.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 5 K (77 pitches- 42 strikes)


West Michigan platted a run in the bottom half of the 8th inning in a 4-3 win over the TinCaps. Dylan Lesko started the game and went 3.2 innings, striking out five men and allowing three earned runs. He was relieved by Manuel Castro, who threw 2.1 innings of scoreless ball. Jose Geraldo gave up the deciding run in his two innings of work and was charged with the loss.

Homer Bush Jr. is an excellent defender in the outfield, and his bat is starting to really progress in the Midwest League. Bush went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the game. After a slow start, his OPS is up to .642 on the year. Devin Ortiz went 1-for-3, and Albert Fabian drove in a pair of runs in four at-bats. As a whole, the TinCaps struck out 13 times in the game.


I'd like this amount to  

Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 3-0 over Inland Empire) (14-16 on the season)

Braedon Karpathios– (2-for-4) K

Jay Beshears– (1-for-4) Run, 2 K

Romeo Sanabria- (1-for-4) 2B, Run, K

Isaiah Lowe– 4 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 9 K (71 pitches- 43 strikes)


The Storm pitching staff was dominant on Saturday night as the team struck out 17 batters in a shutout win over the 66ers. Isaiah Lowe started the game and went four innings, striking out nine batters and walking two men. Lowe flashes dominant stuff and just needs to get innings under his belt in 2024. Luis Matos and Will Varmette threw four innings and struck out seven batters, and Xavier Ruiz earned his fourth save of the year by pitching the 9th inning.

Jay Bershears scored a run and singled in four trips. Braedon Karpathios went 2-for-4, and Romeo Sanabria doubled and scored a run for Lake Elsinore.


ACL Padres (Lost 12-3 to ACL Padres) (4-3 on the season)

B.Y. Choi– (1-for-3) HR, RBI, Run, K

Kaden Hollow– (1-for-3) Run, RBI, K

Addison Kopack-(1-for-2) 2B, Run, BB

Yerry Landinez-1 IP, 2 BB, K


The ACL Padres team got out to an early lead, but the bullpen fell apart late in a loss to the Rockies. Yerry Landinez started the game and threw a scoreless first inning. He was relieved by Henry Martinez, who allowed a single run in two innings of work. In the fourth inning, Yovannki Pascual surrendered three earned runs and only managed to record two outs. It got worse from there, as Abraham Parra, Maikel Miralles, and Jesus Castro all gave up runs in the loss.

Shortstop B.Y. Choi is making a name for himself and could be in line for a promotion to the Lake Elsinore Storm. The 22-year-old left-handed hitter, who was born in Korea, went to school at New Mexico Military in Roswell, New Mexico. He owns a 1.230 OPS so far this season. Kaden Holow went 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Addison Kopack doubled in two at-bats for the Padres. As a team, the Padres truck out 12 times on Saturday.
