El Paso and Amarillo were rained out, and Fort Wayne had a doubleheader on Wednesday. The affiliates went a combined 1-2.

Here is a recap of the day’s events.

El Paso Chihuahuas (34-18)

Rained Out

Amarillo Sod Poodles (24-25)

Rained Out

Lake Elsinore Storm (25-25) Lost 5-1

San Diego Padres’ right-handed pitcher Dinelson Lamet made his return to the mound after Tommy John surgery. He went the first 2.2 innings and allowed three earned runs while striking out five. He has 30 days or so to rehab in the minors, and it will be interesting to see how he progresses. The Storm dropped the game on Wednesday as the offense could not get anything going. The team recorded only three hits in the game and struck out 11 times. Elliot Ashbeck was solid out of the pen throwing four shutout innings and striking out five batters. The Storm have a doubleheader scheduled to start tomorrow at 5:00 pm with MacKenzie Gore on the mound in the first game.

Allen Cordoba– (1-4) Run

Gabriel Arias– (1-4) K

Olivier Basabe– (1-3) 2B, K

Dinelson Lamet- 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, BB, 5 K

Fort Wayne TinCaps (25-26)

Game 1 Won 1-0

Fort Wayne improved to .500 on the season by winning game number one of Wednesday’s doubleheader with the Western Michigan Whitecaps. Joey Cantillo threw well in the win, going five solid innings for Fort Wayne. Austin Smith closed out the seven-inning game with a save. He went scoreless in his last two innings pitched and could have found his stride moving forward. He still has a long road to go, though. Michael Curry and Grant Little doubled in the victory, and Blake Hunt drove in the only run of the game in the sixth inning.

Michael Curry– (1-3) 2B, Run, K

Grant Little– (1-3) 2B, BB

Blake Hunt– (1-3) RBI 2 K

Austin Smith– (Save) 2 IP, 1 H, 2 K (23 pitches-17 strikes)

Joey Cantillo– (Win) 5 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 8 K (94 pitches- 57 strikes)

Games 2 Lost 10-1

Being above .500 did not last long, as the TinCaps dropped game number two by the score of 10-1. Alberth Martinez was knocked around for six runs in 2.1 innings pitched. Nick Kuzia was also roughed up allowing four earned runs in an inning pitched. Lee Solomon took the mound for the TinCaps in the last inning and threw a scoreless frame. This was not the infielders first time on the mound for the TinCaps this year. Fort Wayne only managed five hits in the nightcap of the doubleheader. Xavier Edwards recorded two of them from the leadoff position.
