On Wednesday afternoon, Nabil Krismat knocked off the rust.
The 27-year-old right-hander, who was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sept. 11, was anchored to the Padres’ cab team last week before pitching a scoreless inning in a 9-8 win against visiting Oklahoma City .
Chrismat struck out one in his first appearance since September 10 and his first minor league appearance since August 10, 2021.
With a 2.98 ERA in 63 1/3 innings in the majors this year, Chrismat has been an important arm in the Padres’ bullpen, but has allowed seven runs — four earned — in his last six innings.
Right-hander Rhys Kner (6.96 ERA) allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings in the start.
Right-hander Angel Felipe (4.05) saved his second game with El Paso with three strikeouts in two shutout innings.
Designated hitter Brandon Dixon (1.321 OPS) hit 11thousand homer, third baseman Matthew Batten (.827 OPS) went 1-for-5 with three RBI, shortstop C.J. Hinojosa (.833 OPS) doubled twice and right fielder Taylor Colvey (.838 OPS) went 2-for-2 -3 with a triple, an RBI, a walk and a run scored.
El Paso is 81-62 and has a one-game lead over Oklahoma City in the Pacific League East Division. The season ends on September 28.
Double-A San Antonio will host Game 2 of the Texas League playoff series on Thursday. The Missions lost to Frisco on Tuesday to open the best-of-three series.
