Triple-A El Paso

The El Paso Chihuahua’s scored quickly and early to jump out to a 6-0 lead over the rival Nashville Sounds Tuesday night in El Paso. They eventually won the game 8-2, with Juan Pablo Oramas going into the 6th inning before tiring and allowing two runs. He evens his record at 6-6 on the season though while striking out four and only walking one. Offensively Taylor Lindsay paced El Paso by going 3 for 4 with a home run, while catcher Adam Moore also added a home run. Shortstop Tyler Greene went 0-5 on the opposite side with two strikeouts. Honorable mention goes to our old friend Jace Peterson who went 2-4 with a double and a walk. Four relievers combined to hold the Sounds scoreless the rest of the way, with reliever Chris Rearick pitching two innings to finish off the game and seal the victory.

Friar of the Future: Taylor Lindsay

Friar of the Future: Tyler Greene. Even when Gyorko went down earlier, the Padres called on Brooks Conrad, not Tyler Greene. It if interesting to see where this veteran utility infielder fits into the Padres plans at all or if he will be on to another team in 2015.
