Padres Minor League Roundup For August 16th

Padres First Round pick Trea Turner: mandatory credit goes to

Single A: Fort Wayne TinCaps (53-67)

The Fort Wayne TinCaps were downed 10-5 at home last night against the Lake County Captains.

The offense did their job. Trea Turner continued his remarkable run of dominance in the Midwest league, going 2-for-5 while scoring a run.

Turner’s batting average is currently at .403 despite hitting .268 over the past ten games. Turner “only” has eleven hits during that stretch, while walking five times, and striking out ten. If there is one complaint about Turner’s number since breaking with the TinCaps, it’s his strikeout numbers. Turner has 29 strikeouts through 31 games in Fort Wayne. Turner also struck out 19 times in 23 games with the Eugene Emeralds.

Dustin Peterson continues to struggle in his role with the team. Peterson went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.

Despite going 0-for-3, Jake Bauers still managed to be productive on a sacrifice fly to left field.

The Fort Wayne pitching staff left much to be desired. Jeffrey Enloe pitched just 2.2 innings and allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks. Three of the eight hits went deep. His replacement, Tyler Wood, didn’t fare much better. Wood also only managed to stay in the game for 2.2 innings after giving up four earned runs on six hits and one walk.
