Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-23-13 

The TinCaps lost a close pitcher’s duel despite a great start by Zach Eflin and a dominating relief appearance by Michael Kelly. The Missions won a pitcher’s duel of their own as top prospect Matt Wisler dominated. Tucson’s offense was shutdown and Sean O’Sullivan was touched for 8 hits and 4 runs in 6 innings as the Padres lost 5-1. Lake Elsinore did not play due to a power failure.
