The San Diego Padres’ affiliates were 5-2 on Monday.
Here is a recap of the day’s action:
El Paso Chihuahuas (79-53) Won 1-0
Left-handed pitching prospect Logan Allen continues to dominate in 2018, as he went five shutout innings on Monday. His ERA is at 0.82 so far in Triple-A. The hurler has wasted no time establishing himself. He could be a very special arm and is still only 21, which is amazing.

Ty France was the hitting star with three hits and Shane Peterson drove in the only run for El Paso. Francisco Mejia had the game off.
