Only one affiliate for the San Diego Padres played on Monday as the other three enjoyed their weekly off-day.

Only Triple-A West teams will play on Monday this regular season.

Here is a recap of Monday’s action.

El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 9-3 over Isotopes) (8-3 on the season)

Daniel Camarena: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, BB, K (Win)

Jordan Guerrero: 2 IP, H, 2 K

Ben Ruta: 1-4, HR, R, 3 RBI

Matt Baten: 1-4, HR, R, RBI

Taylor Kohlwey: 2-3, 2B, R, 4 RBI

The El Paso Chihuahuas didn’t skip a beat against the Albuquerque Isotopes, defeating them once again for their fifth straight win against the Isotopes and sixth straight overall.

The Isotopes took an early 2-0 after back-to-back homer runs against Camarena in the top of the second inning. El Paso quickly tied the game at two in the bottom half of the inning and proceeded to take the lead for good on Kohlwey’s sacrifice fly in the fourth inning.

Ruta and Batten followed the sacrifice by taking Isotopes starter Jose Mujica deep in back-to-back plate appearances to put the game on ice.

San Antonio Missions (6-6 on the season)

San Antonio had an off day today as they completed a six-game road trip at Midland. Tomorrow, Caleb Boushley will get the start on the mound to begin a six-game homestand against the Frisco Roughriders.

Fort Wayne TinCaps (4-7 on the season)

The TinCaps did not play today as they returned to Fort Wayne after a six-game series against Lake County. No starter has been announced for their first game against Lansing Lugnuts tomorrow.
