The San Diego Padres affiliates want 2-2 on Wednesday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.

 

El Paso Chihuahuas (Won 7-1 vs. Sugar Land) (15-11 on the season)

Ryan Weathers: 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 4 K (98 pitches, 59 strikes)

CJ Hinojosa: (1-for-3), HR, RBI, R, 2 BB, K

Aderlin Rodriguez: (2-for-4), 2B, 3 RBI, R, BB

Taylor Kohlwey: (2-for-6), 2 R, SB, K

Ryan Weathers looked fantastic, and he threw seven sparkling frames. He allowed just three hits, one of which was a second-inning home run. He did walk two batters, but he struck out four, and he kept runners off the base paths throughout the game. Weathers has struggled so far this season, but this start was a major step in the right direction.

El Paso’s bats were powered by CJ Hinojosa’s seventh-inning home run and a big third inning. The first two Chihuahua batters were retired, but the next six hitters in the inning reached base. Aderlin Rodriguez doubled home Luis Campusano and Taylor Kohlwey, while Matt Batten brought Nomar Mazara and Rodriguez home with a single. Luke Voit continued to struggle, dropping to 0-for-6 in his rehab assignment. 

 

San Antonio Missions (Won 9-6 vs. Corpus Christi) (9-14 on the season)

Matt Waldron: 4.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, BB, 6 K (94 pitches, 66 strikes)

Connor Hollis: (4-for-5), 2B, RBI, 3 R, SB, HBP, K

Domingo Leyba: (2-for-4), HR, 3 RBI, 2 R, 2 BB

Jorge Oña: (1-for-3), HR, RBI, R, BB, HBP, K

The Missions’ offense powered them to a third consecutive win against the Hooks. Connor Hollis had four hits and scored three times, while Domingo Leyba and Jorge Oña each homered. Chandler Seagle added a double and drove in a pair of runs. San Antonio had a ridiculous 17 chances with runners in scoring position, and they only converted three of them. They left 13 runners on base, but they still managed to push nine runs across. Matt Waldron was effective enough, giving up three runs in 4.2 innings. Osvaldo Hernandez picked up the win for 2.1 perfect innings out of the bullpen.

 

Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 4-0 to Wisconsin) (11-12 on the season)

Jackson Wolf: 5.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K

Jarryd Dale: (2-for-4), 2B, 2 K

Justin Lopez: (2-for-4), 2B

Robert Hassell III: (1-for-3), BB, K

The TinCaps were shut out for the third consecutive game and the fifth time in their last seven. The lack of offense wasted a stellar start from Jackson Wolf. Wolf went 5.1 innings and allowed just one hit. He struck out six Wisconsin players. Unfortunately for the TinCaps, Seth Mayberry and Edwuin Bencomo gave up two runs apiece out of the bullpen. Only four TinCaps players picked up a hit. Justin Lopez and Jarryd Dale each doubled, as they were the only two Fort Wayne players to get multiple hits. Top prospect Robert Hassell III singled and walked in the affair, but Fort Wayne failed to score for the 27th consecutive inning.

 

Lake Elsinore Storm (Lost 9-7 to Rancho Cucamonga) (15-8 on the season)

Blake Snell: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R (3 ER), 2 BB, 8 K (66 pitches, 40 strikes)

Lucas Dunn: (2-for-6), 2B, RBI, K

James Wood: (1-for-3), 2B, R, 2 BB, 2 K

Max Ferguson: (1-for-3), RBI, 3 R, 3 BB, 3 SB, CS, K 

The Storm lost a frustrating game, giving up two runs in the top of the ninth to send the game to the tenth, where three Quakes runs proved enough to win. Blake Snell struggled in his second rehab start, giving up four runs in four innings, three of which were earnt. Snell did strike out eight batters, but he also allowed a home run in a disappointing start.

Max Ferguson stole three bases, bringing his total to 22 on the season. Ferguson also showed great discipline, walking three times and scoring three runs. Four of the nine Rancho Cucamonga runs were unearned, as the two Lake Elsinore errors were costly in the ten-inning affair.

 


Thursday’s Probables

El Paso: Thomas Eshelman, (0-1, 11.25 ERA)

San Antonio: Alek Jacob, (0-0, 2.70 ERA)

Fort Wayne: Noel Vela, (0-0, 0.59 ERA)

Lake Elsinore: TBD
