All of the San Diego Padres minor league teams lost on Tuesday and many of the games were blowouts. Brian Sweeney is back in Portland and got his feet wet in relief. Matt Bruback took his seventh loss. Mobile was blown away and resorted to a fielder to pitch the end of the game. Lake Elsinore has lost six straight and five errors were no help. Peter Stonard may be lost forever. Greg Conden suffered the worst outing of any player in the organization.

With three-fifths of the Portland rotation in San Diego, Joey Hamilton going down would seem to be a big blow and it could be in the future, but not Sunday. Mobile loses as the hitting is again dead. David Pauley and Rene Miniel each suffered their worst games of the year in an Elsinore loss. The Fort Wayne game was suspended and will be complete on Monday. The Wizards were up 5-0.

<b>Pitchers</b><br>Several pitchers emerged this year at Lake Elsinore as potential Padres for the future. Lake Elsinore has proven to be a great place to hit, but also a very tough place to pitch and play defense. As much as hitters benefit from Lake Elsinore, pitchers suffer with ballooning earned run averages (ERA's) and shattered confidences. The Storm pitchers finished in the middle of the pack in the California League's overall pitching rankings.
