Daily Farm Round-Up: 5-25-13 

It was a bad night for Padres affiliates as every single minor league team lost. Walker Weickel was decent, yet the TinCaps were outscored by the Hot Rods 5-3. In Lake Elsinore, Frank Garces tossed a quality start, but the bullpen could not hold down the lead. Tucson lost in similar fashion as Brad Brach blew the game late as he allowed 3 home runs in just 1 inning of work. San Antonio’s offense was unable to get on track as the Missions lost 4-1.
