Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-20-16 

It was a good night on the farm as the Chihuahuas were the only team to endure a loss. The Storm had their best offensive night of the season while the TinCaps’ great pitching earned them another victory.

 

Hitting Prospect of the Day: Franchy Cordero

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Jacob Nix/Logan Allen

 

El Paso Chihuahuas 1, Tacoma Rainiers 3

Manuel Margot – CF: 1-4, 2B

Carlos Asuaje – 2B: 2-4, 3B

Jose Pirela – LF: 0-4

Hunter Renfroe – RF: 0-4, K

Alex Dickerson – DH: 1-3

Jason Hagerty – 1B: 1-3, 2B, RBI, K

Daniel McCutchen – SP: 5.0 IP, 5H, 2ER, 2BB, 3K (L, 2-1)

Notes: Carlos Asuaje’s 2-hit night raised his average to a round .300 over his first 40 ABs with the Chihuahuas. Asuaje has been productive at every stop in the minors he’s played at since being drafted in 2013. Daniel McCutchen turned in his best start of the season tonight with a season low 2 earned runs over 5 solid innings.

 

San Antonio Missions: Day Off

 

Lake Elsinore Storm 17, San Jose Giants 3

Franchy Cordero – CF: 3-5, 2 HR(2), 4RBI, 2K, 3 Runs scored

Luis Urias – 2B: 1-3, 2B, RBI

Javier Guerra – SS: 3-4, HR(2), 2RBI, BB, 3 Runs scored

Franmil Reyes – RF: 2-5, K, Run scored

Josh VanMeter – DH: 2-3, HR(2), 2RBI, BB, K, 2 Runs scored

Edwin Moreno – LF: 2-5, 2 HR(2), 4RBI, K, 2 Runs scored

River Stevens – 3B: 1-4, HR(1), 4RBI, 2 Runs scored

Martires Arias – SP: 4.2 IP, 4H, 2R, 1ER, 4BB, 3K

Notes: The Storm offense exploded tonight as they combined to score 17 runs off the strength of 7 home runs. Both Franchy Cordero and Edwin Moreno smacked 2 home runs while Javier Guerra, Josh VanMeter and River Stevens each hit one of their own. Javier Guerra in particular is finding his way out of a season opening slump as he’s raised his average from .125 to .225 over the last 5 days. The win improved the Storm’s record to 8-6.

 

Fort Wayne TinCaps 6, Lansing Lugnuts             1

Peter Van Gansen – SS: 2-5, 2B, RBI, 2 Runs scored

Michael Gettys – CF: 2-5, 2B, RBI, 3K

Ty France – 3B: 0-4, BB, K

Austin Allen – C: 0-3, BB, K, Run scored

Luis Tejada – RF: 1-4

Jhonatan Pena – LF: 3-4, 2B, 3B, Run scored

Jacob Nix – 3.0 IP, 4H, 1R, 0ER, 1BB, 4K

Logan Allen – RP: 4.0 IP, 2H, 0R, 2BB, 2K (W, 2-0)

Notes: Logan Allen has arguably been performing the best out of the 4 prospects received for Craig Kimbrel. In 3 appearances, Allen has thrown 10 innings while allowing just 1 run and 4 walks and striking out 11. His old schoolmate, Jacob Nix, has been equally impressive since a rough opening start as he’s allowed just 1 run over his last 2 starts combined.

Three weeks after I was born, Padre legend Tony Gwynn visited my hospital and handed out teddy bears to all the newborn children, including me. I have been a Padre fan ever since. Whether SD is in the midst of an exciting playoff run, or an uneventful off-season, I love following them and I love writing about them.
