The Missions had a scheduled off day. They open a series against Springfield on Wednesday.
Tim Stauffer's rehab stint with Lake Elsinore continued at a slow pace Tuesday. The Padres' righty threw 39 pitches over 1.2 innings, giving up one run on three hits and a walk. Stauffer did strike out a pair before giving way to Matt Lollis, who left inherited runners on second and third.

While Medica doesn't yet have enough plate appearances to show up on league leader boards, his 1.005 OPS is fifth among Cal League hitters with at least 200 plate appearances. The 24-year-old slugger's 30 doubles are good for second on the circuit.
Lollis's disappointing season continued as the big righty gave up four runs over 4.1 innings to take the loss. He matched his season high with five strikeouts, but is still struggling with both command and control. Lollis, 21, allowed four hits and three walks.
Bisson went 2-for-4 on the night and has had an impressive first week in August. In the first six games of the month, Bisson has gone 8-for-22 hitting two doubles and a home run batting .364.
Ryan Quigley relieved and worked two perfect innings. while striking out a season-high five hitters.

The Dominican southpaw scattered only three hits against a Bowling Green (27-17, 66-49) team that carried a league-best .271 batting average into the game.

That lead ballooned to three runs in the third inning as Peterson singled home a run, and Asencio grounded into a run-scoring double play. The TinCaps tilted the score further with three runs in the fourth inning. Travis Jankowski singled home a run, and Jace Peterson plated both Duanel Jones and Kyle Gaedele, making it 6-0 Fort Wayne. Peterson finished the night with three runs batted in. He leads the team with 29 multi-hit games. Mike Gallic capped the scoring with a solo home run in the seventh inning. It was his first home run since May 19th, when he also homered against the Hot Rods at Parkview Field.
Bowling Green's three runs were scored against Daniel Sarria in the eighth inning. Ryan Brett contributed an RBI double, and Alejandro Segovia hit a two-run home run, which cleared not only the left field fence, but also the construction fence separating Parkview Field from The Harrison.
Travis Jankowski extended his hitting streak to nine consecutive contests, going two-for-four at the plate.
