The San Diego Padres affiliates went 3-5 on Friday.
In Sacramento, the Chihuahuas lost 3-2 in the 10th as Chris Shaw had a walkoff double off of Matt Magill. Kyle Lloyd started the game and went six strong innings for the Chihuahuas, striking out seven batters. Franchy Cordero had two hits in the loss, as did Christian Villanueva. Hunter Renfroe went 1-3 with two walks, as he has made some much-needed adjustments with his plate discipline in Triple-A.
The San Antonio Missions lost to Midland 12-5, as Enyel De Los Santos was roughed up by the Yankees’ affiliate. The short-striding right-handed pitcher went six innings, allowing seven runs (four earned) to score on 12 hits. He did not have his best stuff on the night, as his ERA climbed to 3.78 on the year. In relief of De Los Santos, was Yimmi Brasoban, and he was beat up pretty bad. The right-handed hurler allowed five earned runs on three hits and four walks in his 1.2 innings of relief. Noah Perio has quietly been the Missions’ most consistent hitter all season long. The left-handed-hitting infielder went 4-4 and scored three runs for San Antonio. Nick Schulz also had a perfect night, as he went 3-3 with a walk.
Logan Allen was hit hard on Friday as the left-handed pitcher only went 1.2 innings, allowing eight earned runs. This was easily his worst outing of the year. The Quakes jumped the lefty early, as they put up seven runs in the second inning off of him. Caleb Boushley came in to relieve him and went 4.1 innings, allowing two runs to score on six hits. A pretty nice effort from the pitcher. Michael Gettys went 2-3 on the night and Ruddy Giron also recorded two hits for the Storm.
Fort Wayne was victorious 5-2 behind back-to-back home runs in the eighth inning off the bats of Buddy Reed and Reinaldo Illarraza. Reed’s was a three-run homer while Illarraza followed with a solo shot. Cuban left-handed pitcher Osvaldo Hernandez earned the win in relief as he went three shutout innings, striking out five batters. He threw 28 of his 38 pitches for strikes, and at the age of 19, is a decent prospect moving forward. Pedro Avila started the game and went five strong. He only allowed one earned run on the night, striking out nine with his devastating curve.
Tri-City needed a victory, and Nick Margevicius started the team off in the correct direction. The left-handed pitcher out of Rider University went five scoreless innings, only allowing three hits and one walk while striking out 10 batters. He features a low 90’s fastball, but has a very advanced change up and he commands it well. He is 21 and has good size (6′ 5″-220 lbs), so the young hurler is certainly considered a viable prospect. The Dust Devils lost, as Logan Warmoth hit an RBI single in the eighth to give Vancouver the 1-0 victory. Once again Tri-City struggled with the bats, as the team struck out 11 times. They did manage seven hits, but were unable to get the key hit when needed.
The AZL Padres got two impressive pitching performances on Friday night. Dan Dallas started the game and went three scoreless innings, striking out four. Young pitching prospect Michell Miliano followed him by going four innings and allowing one run on three hits while striking out six. Jordy Barley was the hitting star, as he went 3-5 with a double, triple, and two RBI. The young shortstop also stole a base and scored two runs. Second baseman Denzell Gowdy and catcher Michael Cantu both recorded two hits for the Padres in the 6-1 victory.
Two games were on the schedule for the AZL Padres 2 as they played some day/night baseball in the desert. In game one, the Padres were victorious as ground ball specialist Andrew Lockett was in Arizona throwing for the team. The veteran minor leaguer went four innings, allowing three earned runs on five hits, He struck out five on the day in the 5-4 win. Cole Bellinger relieved Lockett and went two innings, allowing one run to score on two hits. The right-handed pitcher was drafted in the 15th round this year, and is the brother of Cody Bellinger, Dodgers’ first baseman. In game two, the Padres lost 2-0 as the team failed to get a key hit. The Padres slugged two doubles and six overall hits, but were unable to get a run across the board. Blake Hunt went 1-2 with a double and a walk and Oliver Basabe also had a double in three at bats. Jamito Lebron got the loss, as he allowed two unearned runs to score in his two innings of work.
