San Diego Padres affiliates went 1-2 on Wednesday.
Here is a recap of the day’s events.

The Missions were held to four hits on Wednesday in a 4-0 shutout loss to Corpus Christi. The Hooks’ 36-year-old starter Brandon Lawson shut down the Missions offense in eight innings of work, allowing only the four hits while walking only one. San Antonio fell victim to the long ball, allowing a pair of home runs that capped off a three-run third, which was all Corpus Christi needed. The Missions were able to take away some good things in the loss, with the bullpen throwing three scoreless innings. 2021 Draft pick Kevin Kopps threw a scoreless ninth inning, including a pair of strikeouts.

RP Chase Walter – 1.0 IP, 0 R, BB, 2 K
A day after falling 10-2 to Dayton, the TinCaps followed suit once again on Wednesday with a 9-2 loss to Dayton. The Dragons jumped on top early, scoring twice in the first inning, and never surrendered their lead. TinCaps shortstop Justin Lopez hit a solo home run in the top of the second inning to cut the lead to one, but Dayton turned the offense up after that, scoring in five of the eight innings they hit in.
Lake Elsinore Storm (Won 17-3 vs. Inland Empire) (52-64 on the season)
DH Carlos Luis – 2-for-3, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 BB

After falling behind by two runs in the top of the second, Lake Elsinore took full control of the game and never looked back in a 17-3 victory over Inland Empire. In the bottom of the second, just after falling behind, the Storm scored six runs to jump ahead thanks to RBI doubles by Pierce Jones, Max Ferguson, and Jarryd Dale. From there, the Storm kept the foot on the pedal, scoring eleven more times, including six more runs in the bottom of the eighth.
