San Diego Padres affiliates went 3-2 on Friday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.

The Chihuahuas couldn’t get the win in Las Vegas on Friday, losing 8-4 to the Pilots. Jackson Wolf gave up five early runs in the first two innings and surrendered seven in total in the game. The Chihuahuas were unable to match the offensive output by the Pilots. Wolf is attempting to establish himself, but pitching in the PCL is a tough thing to do. Lake Bachar went three scoreless innings for El Paso and owns a 3.57 ERA on the season.

Matthew Batten went 3-for-4 in the loss and doubled in the game. Batten is showing excellent versatility in El Paso and is hitting .311 this year. Tirso Ornelas homered for the fifth time in the year and scored two runs for the Chihuahuas. After a slow start to the year, Ornelas is really swinging a hot bat of late. Nate Mondou went 1-for-3, as did outfielder Cal Mitchell.

Albert Fabian doubled twice and was 2-for-3 with four RBIs. Jay Bershears continues to hit since being promoted from Lake Elsinore. The third baseman went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in the game. Ethan Salas has been slumping in Fort Wayne, but the young catcher did walk twice and earn a hit in two at-bats.

Henry Baez started the game and allowed four early runs. The right-handed pitcher gave up a total of six runs, but only four were earned. Jose Geraldo struck out five in two innings, allowing an earned run. The rest of the TinCaps’ bullpen was solid as Ryan Och, Will Geredes, and Mitch Miller shut down the Cubs.

Eric Yost– 4.2 IP, 8 H, 7 ER, BB, 4 K (66 pitches- 43 strikes)


The Storm blew the game late in Visalia as Eric Yost ran out of gas in the fifth and had little help behind him. Yost went 4.2 innings, allowing seven runs on eight hits.

Addison Kopack tripled and doubled in four at-bats. Kaden Hollow had a perfect 2-for-2 game and B.Y. Choi homered for the third time on the year. Choi is a left-handed hitting infielder with a lot of power to his swing There is a ton of swing and miss to his approach right now, but he shows great raw power.

Ruben Salinas started the game and didn’t allow a run in the first. He was relieved by Yerry Landinez, who went 1.2 innings pitched and allowed one earned run. Langston Burkett was roughed up for four runs (two earned) in 0.2 innings pitched. Maikel Miralles pitched a scoreless inning and Bernard Jose recorded the save for the Padres.
