RHP Lloyd paces 3-hit shutout for San Antonio

Bill Center, longtime sportswriter for U-T San Diego, is an employee of the Padres.

Right-handed starter Kyle Lloyd and two relievers combined on a three-hit shutout for Double-A San Antonio on Friday night, and catchers Austin Hedges and Austin Allen swung the biggest sticks in the Padres' system.

All seven Padres Minor League affiliates won Friday.

Lloyd, 25, allowed three hits and a walk with four strikeouts over seven scoreless innings as San Antonio (20-22 in the second half of the Texas League and 42-70 overall) defeated Frisco, 3-0, at Wolff Stadium in San Antonio.

Lloyd improved to 6-4 and lowered his ERA to 3.73.

Right-hander Adam Cimber (2.32 ERA) struck out one in a perfect eighth. Right-hander Yimmi Brasoban (2.10) issued a walk in an otherwise perfect inning to get his third save.

First baseman Trae Santos (.100) hit a homer in three at-bats. Shortstop River Stevens (.247) was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Designated hitter Gabriel Quintana (.246) was 1-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored.

Hedges (.347) was 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a run scored in Triple-A El Paso's (63-52) win over Tacoma in the Texas city. The win halted a four-game Chihuahuas' losing streak.

Allen (.322) was 4-for-7 with two RBIs and a run scored. He also drove in the winning run in the top of the 15th, as the TinCaps (18-23, 54-57) scored a 4-3 win at South Bend.

There was several moves in the Padres' system Friday.

Outfielder Patrick Kivlehan, who the Padres claimed on waivers from Seattle on Thursday, was optioned to El Paso, where center fielder Auston Bousfield went on the seven-day disabled list.

Left-hander Logan Allen, who has been on Fort Wayne's disabled list since June 15, struck out two in an inning as he started a rehab assignment with the Arizona Rookie Padres.
