San Diego Padres prospect MacKennzie Gore was the Missions’ starting pitcher on Friday at Wolff Stadium.
MacKenzie Gore pitched at Wolff Stadium for his first and only time this season on Friday night.

The highly regarded San Diego Padres prospect made his second start of the season for the San Antonio Missions in a 4-1 victory over the Corpus Christi Hooks.

Gore did not get a decision, pitching four innings and allowing one run on three hits, three walks and eight strikeouts. He made his first start for the Missions on the road last week, going five innings and allowing two runs.

The 6-foot-2 left-hander was a first-round draft pick, No. 3 overall, by the Padres in 2017.

The game was tied 1-1 heading into the late innings. The Missions got a solo home run from Michael Curry in the seventh inning to take the lead for good. Eguy Rosario added a two-run homer in the eighth for the final runs of the game.
