Padres 8, Phillies 2: Cashner Cruises Backed By Hot Bats

Andrew Cashner turned in a great start and had the full support of his offense.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

I don't know what was more awesome tonight: Andrew Cashner striking out 7 while only allowing 2 runs on 4 hits in 7.2 innings, or the way the offense had their bats out and ready to go the moment they landed in Philadelphia. Jedd Gyorko and Chase Headley both went 3 for 5, racking up a combined total of 4 runs and 3 RBI. But it was a group effort: All but one position player picked up a hit tonight, and we'll give Alexi Amarista a pass for being so gosh darn adorable.

Gyorko and Headley started things right away, with the former hitting a double and then reaching home on the latter's single in the top of the first. Our boys added their first crooked number when Gyorko and Kyle Blanks picked up singles in the fourth. Then, with two outs, Ronny Cedeño and Rene Rivera hit back to back doubles. The coup de grâce came the very next inning when the Padres hit five singles in a row. The Phillies tried in vain to come back, but they were only able to muster a paltry pair of runs.

Hopefully the bats stay hot tomorrow when Eric Stults faces off against Cliff Lee at 4:05 PM.
