Chase Headley: 2-for-4, 2B, BB
Brian Myrow: 0-for-3, SF
Chip Ambres (CF): 1-for-4
Edgar Gonzalez (3B): 0-for-4

Clay Hensley: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 0 SO
Jared Wells: 1 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 1 SO
The Padres are being cautious with Venable, who hasn’t played the field since returning from the disabled list earlier this week… Wells gets a save for that performance. Sure, why not.

Drew Macias: 2-for-3, 2 BB
Chad Huffman: 3-for-4, BB
Kyle Blanks: 2-for-5, E
Craig Cooper: 1-for-5

Ah, I love a pitcher’s duel.
High-A — Lake Elsinore 2, High Desert 1
Javis Diaz: 0-for-4
Cedric Hunter: 0-for-4
Eric Sogard: 1-for-2, 2B, BB

Kellen Kulbacki (DH): 0-for-3
Rayner Contreras: 0-for-2, E
Drew Miller: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 HR, 0 BB, 11 SO
Kulbacki made his Elsinore debut… Nice game from Miller.
Off the field, Dr. Seuss is taking a page out of MLB’s book on how to win friends and influence people. I’m down with protecting one’s assets, but it seems to me this could have been handled a little better. Still, I love the Storm’s official statement. I respect anyone who can spoof Dr. Seuss in response to a cease-and-desist letter. That is solid.
Low-A — Fort Wayne 7, Cedar Rapids 5
Luis Durango: 0-for-4, BB
Andrew Cumberland (SS): 1-for-4, BB
Justin Baum: 1-for-4, 2B, BB
Bradley Chalk: 1-for-3, BB
Felix Carrasco: 1-for-3, BB
Yefri Carvajal: 1-for-3, BB
Jeremy Hefner: 2.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 HR, 2 BB, 2 SO
Carvajal drew his fifth walk of the season (against 25 strikeouts); everybody drink.
