Notes: Rymer Liriano enjoyed his first multi-hit game since July 3rd. Liriano has been quite streaky this year, and he’s looking to finally break out of the offensive funk he’s been in. Austin Hedges’ offense hasn’t been great this year as he’s hitting just .242 after tonight’s game, but his defense has been as good as ever as he threw out both runners who attempted to steal on him.

The 7 home runs and 53 RBI’s are career highs for Phillips.

Notes: Trea Turner made his TinCaps debut tonight and went 1-for-5 with a single and 2 stolen bases. Coming out of NC State, Turner was touted as having remarkable speed and he has not disappointed as he has been successful in 11 of 12 stolen base attempts between Fort Wayne and Eugene.

Jalen Goree – 2B: 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB, 2K

Notes: Franchy Cordero is now riding a 7 game hitting streak; he is hitting .368 over his last 10 games and .286 over 98 AB’s with Eugene. The Padres pushed Cordero earlier this season as he was originally assigned to Low-A Fort Wayne, but after hitting .188 over 22 games with the TinCaps he was demoted.
AZL Padres 6, AZL Mariners 9
Ruddy Giron – SS: 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 Runs scored
Jordan Paroubeck – LF: 1-4, 2K, 2 Runs scored
Michael Gettys – CF: 3-4, 2B, 3 RBI
Jonas Lantigua – 1B: 0-2, RBI
Mason Smith – RF: 1-3, BB, K
Carlos Belen – 3B: 1-3, BB, K
Walker Weickel – SP: 2.0 IP, 3H, 1ER, 1BB
Notes: Michael Gettys enjoyed a 3 RBI game that pushed his RBI total to 12 over 19 games with the AZL Padres. Gettys, however, is still looking for his first professional home run. Walker Weickel made his first start with the AZL Padres after struggling mightily with the TinCaps. Weickel has been quite the disappointment for the Padres. After posting a 5.04 ERA over 23 starts with the TinCaps last year, Weickel has regressed this year as he has posted a 6.32 ERA with the TinCaps over 15 starts.
