Daily Farm Round-Up: 9-5-12
It was a good day for the entire Padres organization; while the Friars were busy winning a series against LA, both their minor league affiliates that qualified for playoff spots- Lake Elsinore and Fort Wayne- managed to collect a victory in their first playoff game. Lake Elsinore won off the strength of a dominant pitching performance from Matthew Andriese and a clutch single by Cory Spangenberg. Fort Wayne combined solid hitting with an effective James Needy and a dominant bullpen performance to earn their win. Travis Jankowski extended his hitting streak to 18 as the TinCaps won 5-2.
