The San Diego Padres, minor league affiliates, went 4-0 on Wednesday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Defeated the Reno Aces 15-3) (20-27 on the season)

Matt Waldron: 6 IP, 3 H, 2 R, BB, 6 K (76 pitches, 54 strikes)

Jantzen Witte: (5-for-5), 2 R, 2 2B, 5 RBI

Rangel Ravelo: (2-for-4), 2 R, HR, 2 RBI

Matthew Batten: (1-for-3), R, HR, 3 RBI

Taylor Kohlwey: (1-for-2), 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, BB

David Dahl: (1-for-3), 3 R, 2 BB

El Paso didn’t wait till noon to score runs on Wednesday. Nearly 10,000 fans poured into Southwest University this morning as the Chihuahuas scored 15 runs on 13 hits. El Paso also walked eight times and reached base twice via catcher’s interference. Jantzen Witte raised his batting average to .274 on the season with a five-hit performance, including two doubles.

Chihuahuas starter Matt Waldron didn’t allow a hit until two outs in the sixth inning. The knuckleballer needed only 76 pitches to throw six innings as he picked up his first win on the season. Rangel Ravelo, Matthew Batten, and Taylor Kohlwey all homered for the Chihuahuas.


San Antonio Missions (Beat Amarillo Sod Poodles 4-3) (21-20 on the season)

Nolan Watson: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 5 K (81 pitches, 58 strikes)

Korry Howell: (2-for-3), 3 R, 2B, BB

Chandler Seagle: (2-for-3), RBI

Cole Cummings: (2-for-2), 2B, RBI, BB

Ripken Reyes: (1-for-4), GW RBI

Nolan Watson made his appearance of the year on Wednesday night. The right-hander was relatively efficient on the day. Amarillo took advantage of a balk and scored an early first-inning run. They got to him again in the fourth on a solo shot from former first-round draft pick Seth Beer.

Despite scoring 14 the previous night, the Missions bats were quite cold for most of the game. Heading into the bottom of the ninth down 3-2, Korry Howell and Juan Fernandez opened the inning with singles followed by an intentional walk to load the bases, still with no outs. After a pinch-hit sac fly from Michael De La Cruz, Ripken Reyes ripped a single to right field to send San Antonio fans home happy. The win also raised the team’s winning percentage back over .500.


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Defeated the Lansing Lugnuts 5-3) (16-25 on the season)

Jared Kollar: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 K (64 pitches, 44 strikes)

Jackson Merrill: (1-for-4), R, 3B, RBI

Jakob Marsee: (1-for-4), 2 R, HR, RBI

Lucas Dunn: (1-for-2), 2B, RBI, 2 BB

Jared Kollar continued his stellar season Wednesday with five shutout innings. The right-hander from Rutgers picked up his second win on the year while lowering his ERA to 2.00 and WHIP to 0.94 in 2023.

Jackson Merrill ripped a two-out triple in the bottom of the third inning. Lucas Dunn would double him in on the next pitch. The TinCaps rallied for three more runs in the fourth. Later in the game, Jakob Marsee launched his fourth home run of the season.

Fort Wayne has now won six of their last nine games after starting the season 10-22.

I'd like this amount to  

Lake Elsinore Storm (Defeated Rancho Cucamonga 8-2) (21-16 on the season)

Jagger Haynes: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 5 K (41 pitches, 25 strikes)

Manuel Castro: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 5 K (64 pitches, 40 strikes)

Samuel Zavala: (1-for-4), R, RBI, 2 BB

Griffin Doersching: (3-for-4), 2 2B, RBI, BB

Graham Pauley: (1-for-6), 2 R, 2 RBI

Charlis Aquino: (3-for-5), 2 R

Jagger Haynes, fresh off of TJ surgery, made the best outing of his pro career thus far on Wednesday night. Despite only facing nine batters due to a limited pitch count, the 2020 draftee pitched 2.2 scoreless innings allowing just a walk while striking out five. The lefty lowered his ERA to 3.38 on the season before turning it over to Manuel Castro.

Quakes starter Chris Campos loaded the bases to begin the third inning with two walks and a bunt single before walking in a run. Graham Pauley singled in two in the next at-bat. A sac fly from Albert Fabian and a double from Griffin Doersching made it 5-0, ending Campos day. The Storm would score three more in the fourth inning to open up an 8-0 lead. The Quakes scored a run in the seventh and eighth innings.


Wednesday’s Probables:

El Paso: Pedro Avila (1-4, 10.52 ERA, 17 K)

San Antonio: Daniel Camarena (0-2, 10.61 ERA, 10 K)

Fort Wayne: Adam Mazur (0-0, 1.77 ERA, 14 K)

Lake Elsinore: TBD
