Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-10-16 

The Chihuahuas were the only Padre farm team to not earn a victory tonight. The TinCaps enjoyed a second consecutive offensive explosion as they were once again buoyed by the hot bats of Austin Allen and Brad Zunica.


Hitting Prospect of the Day: Austin Allen/Brad Zunica

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Luis Diaz


El Paso Chihuahuas 1, Reno Aces 6

Manuel Margot – CF: 1-4, K, Run scored

James Loney – 1B: 0-4, K

Hunter Renfroe – RF: 1-4, RBI, K

Alex Dickerson- LF: 0-4, K

Austin Hedges – C: 1-3

Mike Olt – 3B: 1-3, K

Justin Hancock – SP: 5.0 IP, 8H, 5R, 2ER, 0BB, 4K (L, 0-1)

Notes: The Chihuahuas had trouble offensively in this game as they only managed 5 hits and 1 run on an RBI single from Hunter Renfroe. Justin Hancock is starting a season at the Triple-A level for the first time in his career; Hancock has enjoyed success at lower levels and he turned in a 3.59 ERA over 22 starts with the Missions last year.


San Antonio Missions 3, Tulsa Drillers 0

Nelson Ward – SS: 1-4, RBI, Run scored

Auston Bousfield – CF: 0-3, 2K

Taylor Lindsey – 2B: 0-4, K, Run scored

Yeison Asencio – RF: 0-2, RBI

Gabriel Quintana – 3B: 0-3, RBI, K

Rocky Gale – C: 1-3, K, Run scored

Luis Diaz – SP: 7.0 IP, 4H, 0R, 1BB, 3K (W, 1-0)

Jason Jester – RP: 1.0 IP, 3H, 0R, 0BB, 2K (S, 2)

Notes: Despite being outhit 8-3 the Missions outscored the Drillers 3-0 and recorded their first shutout victory of the season. Interestingly enough, not a single earned run was scored in this game; the Missions scored all their runs by capitalizing on defensive miscues. Luis Diaz was nothing short of dominant in this game and he earned a well deserved victory. This was Diaz’s first start as a member of the Padres organization and it’s hopefully a precursor for the type of season he’ll have with San Antonio. Diaz struggled in Double-A last year as he compiled a 5.47 ERA over 27 starts.


Lake Elsinore Storm 7, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 6

Franchy Cordero – CF: 3-4, 3B, BB, K, 4 Runs scored

Javier Guerra – SS: 1-5, K

Franmil Reyes – DH: 1-5, 4RBI, K

Trae Santos – 1B: 0-3, 2BB, K

Fernando Perez – 2B: 1-4, K

Jose Ruiz – C: 1-3, 2B, BB, K, Run scored

Michael Kelly – SP: 4.0 IP, 8H, 4ER, 3BB, 4K

Colby Blueberg – RP: 1.0 IP, 0H, 0R, 0BB, 0K (S, 2)

Notes: Franchy Cordero enjoyed one of his best games ever in full season ball tonight. Cordero was once considered a rising star in the Padres system back in 2013 when he hit .333 over 141 ABs with the Arizona Rookie League. Since then, however, he’s struggled to make contact; he hit .243 with 121 strikeouts over 126 games with Fort Wayne last year. Michael Kelly, a supplemental 1st round pick back in 2011 by the Padres, struggled in his first start of the year as he allowed 4 runs and 11 base runners over 4 innings. Kelly has moved slowly through the Padres system and has not enjoyed very much success at any level.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 14, Lake County Captains 4

River Stevens – RF: 1-4, K

Ruddy Giron – SS: 4-6, 2 2B, 2RBI, 2K, 3 Runs scored

Michael Gettys – CF: 2-6, RBI, 3K, Run scored

Austin Allen – C: 3-4, 2B, 2RBI, BB, 3 Runs scored

Brad Zunica – 1B: 3-4, 2B, HR(2), 4RBI, 3 Runs scored

Luis Tejada – LF: 1-5, 3B, 2RBI, 2K

Jacob Nix – SP: 1.2 IP, 5H, 4ER, 2BB, K

Logan Allen – RP: 3.0 IP, 3H, 0R, 1BB, 5K (H, 1)

Notes: Another night and another monster performance by both Austin Allen and Brad Zunica. The TinCaps have scored 25 runs over their last two games due in large part to Allen and Zunica. Allen already has three 3+ hit games this season and Zunica has 2 home runs and 7 RBIs over the last 2 games. Jacob Nix and Logan Allen, teammates at IMG Academy this time last year, both made their 2016 debuts tonight. Nix was the Padres 2nd overall pick in last years draft, and Allen was acquired in the deal that sent Craig Kimbrel to the Red Sox. Both are considered top prospects in the Padres system, but Allen has been the more successful of the two so far in their young careers.
