Daily Farm Round-Up: 4-4-13 

Opening Day on the Padre farm was highlighted by outstanding pitching performances from 3 highly touted Padres pitching prospects: Donn Roach, Joe Ross, and Matthew Wisler. They combined to throw 15 scoreless innings with only 5 hits and 13 strikeouts. The Missions and the TinCaps won their openers while the T-Pads and the Storm were unable to come away with victories.

Tucson Padres 5, Salt Lake Bees 9

Jaff Deker-RF: 1-4, HR(1), RBI, Run scored

Jonathan Galvez-2B: 0-4, K

Tim Stauffer-SP: 3.0 IP, 7H, 4ER, BB, K

Brad Boxberger-RP: 1.2 IP, H, 2R, ER, BB, K (L, 0-1)

Notes: Tim Stauffer, the opening day starter for the Padres in 2011, starts opening day for the Padres again: the Tucson Padres. Unfortunately, Stauffer did not fare nearly as well in this start as he did in his 2011 opening day start. He allowed more runs than innings pitched and only managed to record 1 strikeout. Despite home runs from Decker, Petit, and Rivera, the T-Pads still lost 9-5.


San Antonio Missions 7, Tulsa Drillers 1

Reymond Fuentes-CF: 1-4, 2b, RBI, BB, K, Run scored

Everett Williams-LF: 2-5, 2b, 2RBI, K

Tommy Medica-1B: 2-3, BB, 2 Runs scored
Jeudy Valdez- SS: 2-4, 2b, Run scored
Eddy Rodriguez-C: 2-4, 2RBI, Run scored

Jake Blackwood-C: 2-3, 2 2b, RBI, K, Run scored

Donn Roach-SP: 5.0 IP, H, 2BB, 4K (W, 1-0)

Chris Rearick-RP: 1.0 IP, 2H, ER, K

Notes: The Missions blow out the Drillers to start their season. Donn Roach, who was acquired from the Angels in the Ernesto Frieri deal, was dominant as he threw 5 one-hit innings without allowing a run. Chris Rearick, who was acquired from the Rays for Vince Belnome over the offseason, allowed 2 hits and a run in his organizational debut. Williams, Blackwood, Fuentes, and Valdez all contributed doubles to the Mission’s victory.


Lake Elsinore Storm 4, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 5

Jace Peterson-SS: 1-5, RBI, 2K, Run scored

Cory Spangenberg-2B: 2-5, K, Run scored

Austin Hedges-C: 0-4, BB

Yeison Asencio-RF: 1-4, RBI, K

Lee Orr-1B: 1-3, 3b, BB, K

Travis Jankowski-CF: 1-3, 2b, BB, Run scored

Matthew Wisler-SP: 5.0 IP, 3H, 0R, 2BB, 5K

Luis De La Cruz-RP: 1.0 IP, H, 3ER, 2BB, HR Allowed (BS, 1)(L, 0-1)

Notes: Despite a dominating start from Matthew Wisler, the Storm blew away the lead in the bottom of the 8th and lost the opener 5-4 to the Quakes. The double play combo of Peterson and Spangenberg both recorded hits and scored runs while Austin Hedges went hitless to begin the season. Travis Jankowski, who finished the 2012 season with a 20 game hitting streak, extended that streak to 21.


Fort Wayne TinCaps 5, Great Lakes Loons 2

Mallex Smith-DH: 2-4, HR(1), 2RBI, BB, 2 Runs scored

Jeremy Baltz-LF: 1-5, 2b, RBI, K

Dane Phillips-C: 1-4, 2b, BB, K

Gabriel Quintana-3B: 1-4, 2b, BB, 2K

Brian Adams-CF: 2-5, HR(1), 2RBI, 2K, 2 Runs scored

Joe Ross-SP: 5.0 IP, H, 0R, BB, 4K (W, 1-0)

Tayron Guerrero-RP: 0.0IP, H, 2BB

Roman Madrid-RP: 0.1IP, 0H, 0R (S, 1)

Notes: The TinCaps began the season with a solid victory against the Great Lakes Loons. Joe Ross (Padres first round draft pick in 2011 and brother of the Padres’ 5th starter, Tyson Ross) was in control as he threw 5 one-hit innings while striking out 4. Tayron Gurrero, who possesses a 100 MPH fastball, was unable to harness his command tonight; he was not to record a single out. 2012 2nd round draft picks, Jeremy Baltz and Dane Phillips, both hit doubles to start the season.
