After last night's Milwaukee slaughter, which had to have been found in violation of at least one or two treaties of the Geneva Conventions, Friar fans dealt with a much more calm, reserved, and not-full-of-winning game against the Brewers. In three hours we saw some solid pitching from Andrew Cashner, a few hits and missed opportunities from the Pads, and a bite back from the Brews.
Cashner lasted a good 6 innings today, giving up only 2 earned runs after throwing 8 hits and 4 walks. He still struck out 5, and was able to get all of this done a pitch under 100. The relief from Kevin Quackenbush and new hire Marc Rzepczynski were attributed two more runs after Shawn Kelley gave up a sacrifice fly and a single.
The Padres lineup couldn't get anything going past the fourth inning, though. After Matt Kemp took advantage of a wild throw and a wild pitch, he was sent home on a Yonder Alonso sacrifice. For the remainder of the game, the Friars would end up tallying 7 fellas left on base, going 1-for-7 with RISP. Alexi Amarista stayed spicy today, going 2-for-4. Yangervis Solarte, Kemp, Will Venable, and Melvin Upton Jr. were the only other good guys to collect hits today.
