The Padres scored early and scored often in Wednesday afternoon's game at Camelback Ranch. Andrew Cashner was electric in his second start of the spring and got help from a multitude of bats.
Everth Cabrera led the game off with a single and went station-to-station for the first run. Nick Hundley put three more runs on the board with his first homer of the spring before the White Sox even got a chance to bat. The Friars tacked on another run in each of the next two innings, chasing Chris Sale from the game with two outs in the top of the third. A handful of White Sox relievers managed to keep San Diego's batters from crossing the plate until the eighth inning. That's the point at which, with Jonathan Galvez on second, Cody Decker mashed a David Purcey pitch to put the Padres up 8-0 with his first hit of the spring.
Cashner pitched three innings this time out, allowing no walks and only two singles while striking out three. Joe Wieland and Keyvius Sampson followed up with two scoreless innings each, both striking out a pair. Leonel Campos and Kevin Quackenbush each put in an inning of work and registered a strikeout.
On a side note, am I the only one who gets Cadillac Ranch stuck in his head every time they see or hear the words 'Camelback Ranch'?
