Padres’ Minor League Roundup For August 19

Single-A: Fort Wayne TinCaps (55-71)

Last night the Fort Wayne TinCaps lost to the Great Lakes Loons 5-1. Despite not having a good box score line, TinCaps starter Cody Hebner earned a quality start. Hebner pitched 6 innings allowing 5 run (3 earned) on 12 hits while striking out 4. With his defense committing 2 errors Hebner did his best to keep his team in the game. The TinCaps offense was very quiet with only Jake Bauers mustering a multi-hit game. Bauers has been a very bright spot for the TinCaps this season. He is a few years younger than his competition and is making his presence known. Bauers went 2-for-4 while scoring the TinCaps lone run on a Dustin Peterson double in the bottom of the ninth.

First-round pick Trea Turner had the night off on what appears to be a routine day off for the hot hitting prospect. Turner is one of the few Padres’ first round pick to make such an impact for the Padres. Despite it being only in the minors, I am hopefully that the Padres top round picks will be more fruitful in the coming seasons breaking years of bad luck and bad picks.
