The San Diego Padres affiliates had a light day as only the El Paso Chihuahuas, ACL, and DSL Padres were in action. The affiliates went 2-1 on Monday night.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.
El Paso Chihuahuas (Lost 5-4 to Isotopes) (44-69 on the season)
Jesse Scholtens– 7 IP, 9 H, 3 ER, 9 Ks
Patrick Kivlehan– (2-4) two singles, run, RBI
Taylor Kohlwey– (2-5) single, home run, RBI
Gosuke Katoh– (2-4) single, triple, RBI
The Chihuahuas started the week off with a crushing loss against Albuquerque as the Isotopes walked it off in the bottom of the ninth inning. Jesse Scholtens pitched a nice game, tossing seven innings and giving up nine hits and three runs. He struck out nine batters and left with the game in good hands.
Taylor Kohlwey had a home run and a pair of hits for the Chihuahuas, who were in terrific shape going into the final half-inning of the game. But, the Isotopes had other plans, and Fuentes played hero for the home team.
San Antonio Missions OFF
The Missions will play the Corpus Christi Hooks on Tuesday.
Fort Wayne TinCaps OFF
The TinCaps will play the Dayton Dragons on Tuesday.
Lake Elsinore Storm OFF
The Storm will start a series with the Inland Empire 66ers on Tuesday night.
DSL Padres (Lost 11-5 to White Sox) (29-13 on the season)
Brayan Medina– 3 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 2 BBs, 5 Ks
Luis Acosta– 1 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 Ks, loss
Victor Acosta– (4-5) two singles, triple, home run, 2 RBIs, run
Samual Zavala- (2-4) single, triple, run, RBI, BB
The DSL Padres started off the game well as Brayan Medina threw three scoreless frames. After that, Luis Acosta and Manuel Castro gave up six runs combined and put the game out of reach earlier than expected. The White Sox would score another two runs in the sixth and then three combined in the final two frames as their bats exploded.
Axcel Peralta threw the final two innings and gave up three runs on five hits, and, oddly enough, the White Sox didn’t have a single home run all night long.
On the other hand, Victor Acosta was just a double short of the cycle on Monday night and had four of the Padres’ 11 hits. The 17-year-old was phenomenal on the night in his best outing of his career.
On a good note, seven of the nine Padres starters recorded a hit on the evening, but the Padres bullpen combined to give up nine earned runs.
17-year-old shortstop Victor Acosta had the best game of his young career today, going 4-for-5 with a homer and a triple in DSL action.

ACL Padres (6-5 vs. Giants) ( 23-21 on the season)
Nerwilian Cedeno– (3-3) two doubles, home run, 3 RBIs, 2 runs
Justin Lange– 1 IP, 0 H, 0 ER
Ryan Bergert– 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R (unearned), 4 Ks
James Wood– (2-3) two singles, home run, RBI
The Giants and Padres met in ACL and in the MLB on Monday. The outcomes, however, were very different. The ACL Giants and Padres fought back and forth over and over all night long. The Giants broke a 3-3 tie with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth.
Then, the Padres scored a pair in the bottom of the eighth as Nerwillian Cedeno hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth to finally take the lead. Unfortunately, the Giants scored a pair as Wilton Castillo faltered in his third inning of work.
The Padres then loaded the bases and were 90 feet away from tying it up. But Brett Standlee shut the door in a wild game.
