It was bad night down on the farm for the San Diego Padres minor league affiliates as the four teams combined to go 0-4 record. Here is your minor league round up for the San Diego Padres from May 16.
The El Paso Chihuahuas (18-23) lost to the Las Vegas 51s (30-11) 10-2.
This game featured a pitching match up of two young promising right-handers, El Paso’s Matt Wisler and Las Vegas’ Noah Syndergaard. Wisler allowed a run in the first inning and never got into a groove. He was finished after 5 innings allowing 5 runs on 9 hits while striking out 3. Wisler has struggled since being promoted from Double-A San Antonio (0-2, 12.71 ERA). He will need to rediscover his form if he hopes to see the big leagues before the September’s roster expansions.
