Tonight was the home opener for the Lake Elsinore, as they battled former #1 overall draft pick Mark Appel. All of the Padres' farm teams were in action today. Here is what happened on the farm:

Lancaster 6, Lake Elsinore 5: As I mentioned earlier, the Storm played their first home game of the year and lost in 11 innings. OF Corey Adamson socked his first homer of the year, off of the aforementioned Appel. SS Stephen Carmon had a pair of RBI's. He is hitting .467 on the young season.
Springfield 8, San Antonio 5: San Antonio lost this game in 14 innings. Springfield got the win, despite committing six errors. Josh Geer pitched well, allowing only one run in five innings of work. Cory Spangenberg and Travis Jankowski had multi-hit games.
