Catcher Allen homers for Double-A San Antonio

Catcher Austin Allen homered in his second game with Double-A San Antonio and third baseman Carlos Belen hit a grand slam homer and tied his career high with five RBIs for Single-A Fort Wayne Sunday.

Padres center fielder Jon Jay (.167) was 0-for-3 with a walk in his second rehab game with Advanced Single-A Lake Elsinore while second baseman Jemile Weeks (.000) was 0-for-3 with a RBI.

Meanwhile, catcher-turned-reliever Jose Ruiz allowed a hit with two strikeouts in two scoreless innings to get the win for short-season Single-A Tri-City. Ruiz (2-0) has yet to give up an earned run.

There were several moves on the penultimate day of the minor league season. Left-handed pitcher Thomas Dorminy was activated from Fort Wayne's disabled list and transferred to Lake Elsinore. Right-handed pitcher Luke Bachar was transferred from Lake Elsinore to Fort Wayne and right-handed starter Emmanuel Ramirez was transferred from Fort Wayne to Arizona.
