Key Stats: SP Logan Allen 5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 5 K, 3 BB; RHP Luis Perdomo 5 H, 4 ER, 1 K, 1 BB; CF Boog Powell 2-for-4, SB (5); RF Jacob Scavuzzo 2-for-4, HR (11); 3B Seth Mejias-Brean 2-for-4, HR (5)

Prospect Watch: The Chihuahuas carried a three-run lead into the bottom of the ninth, but Luis Perdomo had a rough inning to take the loss. The major league veteran had allowed just one earned run in 6.1 innings since shuttling back to Triple-A, but opened Sunday’s outing with a walk and then got hit hard. The 26-year-old righty came in with a 1.38 ERA but had allowed 16 hits in 13 innings. … Logan Allen looked sharp in his first appearance since getting hit by a line drive and leaving his outing last Saturday. Allen, 21 until later this week, allowed just one run on three hits over five innings, though he did issue three walks. The lefty has allowed two earned runs in his last 18 frames, bouncing back nicely after a rough start to the season once he missed out on a spot in the big league rotation. … With Luis Urías and Michael Gettys getting a day off, the veterans carried the Chihuahuas offense. Boog Powell added two more hits out of the leadoff spot and stole his fifth base. He’s now hitting .411/.522/.750 and has reached base in all but two of his starts this year. … Jacob Scavuzzo, signed as a minor league free agent after putting up 50 homers in 277 games at Double-A in the Dodgers organization over the last three seasons, launched his 11th homer in 81 plate appearances for El Paso. Amazingly, the 25-year-old Orange County native’s 1.004 OPS ranks just 26th among PCL hitters who’ve made as many trips to the plate.

Prospect Watch: The Sod Poodles pounded their way to a third straight victory in Frisco to pull to 19-22 on the season. The first three Amarillo batters reached base to open the game and the club never looked back from there. … Edward Olivares snapped an 0-for-12 stretch with a double in the third inning. While he finished with a pair of hits and has a 20/20 season firmly in his sites, he’s struggled mightily away from Hodgetown, the 23-year-old righty is hitting just .207/.293/.329 on the road. His OPS at home in the Panhandle is more than 500 points higher. … Owen Miller added two more hits, including an RBI double right behind Olivares’s, pushing his average to a season-high .304. The 22-year-old, adjusting to Double-A in his first full season, has hit in 12 of 13 games, raising his OPS 73 points in the process. He’s now performing about 20% above league average in the Texas League (though that doesn’t account effectively for park factors). … Rodrigo Orozco collected his first four-hit game in the Padres system and his 11th multi-hit contest in 25 starts for Amarillo. The switch-hitting Panamanian is the rare Sod Poodle hitter who’s doing more damage on the road than at home.

Roster Notes: With Nick Margevicius sent back to Double-A to make room in the big league rotation, the Sod Poodles placed Reggie Lawson on the disabled list. The big righty from Victor Valley had last appeared in a game on May 9 after getting extra rest between outings for a few trips through the rotation.

Storm rained out

The planned double-header at San Jose to make up for getting washed out Saturday night was also lost to the weather. Elsinore has a scheduled day off Monday, but they’ll pay for the break later this month when they play nine games in six days.

TinCaps rained out

Rain in the Summit City washed out the planned return start of Ryan Weathers, who came off the Injured List 14 days after what the team described as a bicep strain. He’ll come back against South Bend Monday night instead.
