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.

The Fort Wayne Wizards were one of the better teams in the San Diego Padres' organization in 2003. The Wizards ended the season with an overall record of 71-66, which included winning their division in the first half of the season. Most importantly, the Wizards developed several players this year, especially pitchers, who will become a part of future Padres teams.
