Padres Get Second Win of Spring

USA TODAY Sports

Good pitching and good hitting lead to victory.

Edinson Volquez tossed two scoreless innings in his Spring debut as our Padres played their way to victory. Volquez gave up two hits and a walk, but struck out four. Robbie Erlin had an impressive outing, also pitching two scoreless frames. He gave up just one hit and one walk, struck out one batter, and only used 13 pitches in the process. Reliever Brandon Kloess surrendered the only run of the day for Milwaukee, an unearned run (error by Jesus Guzman) in the 5th inning. Altogether, it was a great day for Padres pitching, who combined for seven hits and ten strikeouts.

It was also a great offensive day for Padres hitters. Nick Hundley was robbed of extra bases in the 2nd inning by Carlos Gomez and it felt like it was going to be a frustrating game. But then an inning later Jedd Gyorko his hit second home run of the Spring, a two-out two-run shot off Milwaukee starter Hiram Burgos. Will Venable, Kyle Blanks, and Jeudy Valdez all hit doubles off Brewers relievers. Eddy Rodriguez hit a three-run homer in the 9th inning to really put the game away. Padres hitting produced seven runs on ten hits and six walks. However, despite coming out on the winning end of a lopsided score, they left 10 men on base and went 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position.
