Enrique Gonzalez: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 2 BB, 4 SO
Four Beavers batters had two hits… Hensley’s ball-to-strike ratio was terrible, but three innings of work is three innings of work and we’ll take it… Terrific outing from Gonzalez.

Jonathan Ellis: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 HR, 1 BB, 2 SO
The Missions trailed, 2-1, after six innings. Macias was a one-man wrecking crew.
High-A — Lake Elsinore 3, Rancho Cucamonga 1
I was at this one. Shot some video; with luck I’ll have that posted in the next few days, assuming it’s any good… Hunter’s double was fun. It came in the eighth inning, with the Storm clinging to a 1-0 lead. He’d been hitting the ball to the opposite field in previous at-bats, but with Diaz at second and one out, Hunter yanked a fastball from southpaw Barret Browning down the line and over the first-base bag, driving in the visiting team’s second run of the evening… Sogard hit .243/.361/.262 in May; sure he drew some walks, but an .019 ISO? Canham had a nice at-bat in the sixth. He ended up flying out to center, but saw about a dozen pitches… Culp looked good but not overpowering on the mound.
Luis Durango (DH): 0-for-8, BB
Lance Zawadzki (SS): 3-for-6, 2B, BB, SH, E
Felix Carrasco: 4-for-7, 3 2B, BB
Justin Baum: 4-for-7, 2 2B, BB
Yefri Carvajal: 3-for-8, 2 2B
Shane Buschini: 3-for-7, HBP
Wynn Pelzer: 3 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 HR, 0 BB, 2 SO
Geoff Vandel: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 HR, 2 BB, 4 SO
Jeremy Hefner: 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 HR, 2 BB, 5 SO
Wow, an organizational sweep… The first game was a completion of the one suspended by lightning on Friday… Carrasco and Carvajal went nuts in the regularly scheduled contest. (Big thanks to Chad Gramling for the photo of Carrasco.)
Draft Watch: Andrew Cashner
Cashner hails from the same school that produced San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson and current Padres farmhand Chad Huffman. The right-hander throws hard (consistently at 96-98 mph according to BA) but has spotty command. He’s been more effective as a reliever.
I took Cashner in the Baseball Blogger Mock Draft because he best aligned with the Padres’ demonstrated preferences in the draft. Left to my own devices, I probably would have gone with high school outfielder Zach Collier or possibly Anthony Hewitt.
