Triple-A: El Paso Chihuahuas (65-71)

Last night the El Paso Chihuahuas defeated the Colorado Springs Sky Sox 9-7. The offense was spread throughout the entire of the Chihuahuas’ lineup. Catcher Adam Moore led the team in hits going 3-for-5 including a solo home run in the 6th inning. Chihuahuas RF Alex Castellanos included a solo long ball of his own in the second inning while going 1-for-4 on the night.

Starter Juan Pablo Oramas didn’t have his best outing despite lasting 5 innings. Oramas allowed 5 earned runs on 9 hits and 1 walk while striking out 6 on the night. Oramas continues to struggle on the hill this season. Oramas owns a 5.33 ERA at the Triple-A level this season in 106.1 innings of work. Opponents are currently batting a whopping .297 off him, it is no surprise that he owns such a high ERA. He will need to work on having more swing and misses from his opponents if he want to lower his ERA and overall status as a prospect for the Padres.
