San Diego Padres affiliates went 2-2 on Sunday.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.


El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 12-5 to Sugar Land) (14-19 on the season)

Kevin Plawecki– (2-for-5) Run, RBI, 2 K

Bryce Johnson– (2-for-3) 2 BB, 3 SB, Run, RBI, K

Matthew Batten– (1-for-3) 2B, 2 RBI, Run, BB, K

Jackson Wolf– 6 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 3 K (78 pitches- 48 strikes)


The Chihuahuas blew an excellent outing by Jackson Wolf, as the bullpen simply imploded late in the game. It was a 3-1 El Paso lead into the top of the 7th, when the Space Cowboys erupted for eight runs in the inning. Jackson Wolf threw six innings, only allowing an earned run and gave way to the Chihuahuas bullpen. Tom Cosgrove continues to have issues as the lefty came on and failed to record an out. He was charged with four earned runs on three hits and a walk. Paul Fry came on and poured gasoline on the situation, allowing four earned runs himself while recording two outs in the inning.

Offensively, Bryce Johnson stole three bags and recorded two hits for El Paso. Veteran Kevin Plawecki earned two hits, and Matthew Batten drove in a pair for the Chihuahuas. Cal Mitchell and Tirso Ornelas went a combined 0-for-7 in the loss. Donovan Solano was recalled earlier in the day by the Padres and is no longer on the roster. Eguy Rosario figures to get plenty of playing time in the PCL now.


San Antonio Missions (13-13 on the season) 

Canceled- Rain


Fort Wayne TinCaps (Lost 6-0 to Lake County) (10-17 on the season)

Anthony Vilar– (1-for-3)

Homer Bush Jr.- (1-for-3) SB, K

Devin Ortiz– (1-for-4)

Ruben Galindo– 2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 3 K (44 pitches- 24 strikes)


The Captains got two runs in the bottom of the second and never looked back in a 6-0 win over Fort Wayne. The TinCaps could not get anything going with the bats as the team totaled only three hits in the contest. They also only walked twice providing no opportunities for runs to be scored. Devin Ortiz went 1-for-4 in the loss and continues to show a promising bat. Homer Bush Jr. made a nice catch in center, stole a base, and recorded one hit in the afternoon game. He continues to progress.

Fort Wayne got two innings from Ruben Galindo to start the game, and he allowed two earned runs. Manuel Castro and Mitch Miller also gave up two runs in the game for the TinCaps. Francis Pena threw two scoreless innings and continues to show some promise. The 23-year-old right-handed pitcher has a 0.73 ERA this year and a career 1.91 ERA in 47 career innings in the minors.

An error with two outs in the top of the 7th gave Lake Elsinore the win on Sunday. A flyball off the bat of Rosman Verdugo resulted in an error by Cesar Quintas in right field.

Breashears started off the rally with a base hit with one out in the innings; Breshears went 2-for-4 in the game and continues to impress in Lake Elsinore. Rosman Verdugo homered in the game and catcher J.D. Gonzalez knocked in a pair of runs.

Sam Whiting started the game but only went 1.1 innings, allowing two earned runs to score. Isaiah Lowe relieved him and allowed two earned runs in 3.2 innings pitched.
