SD 1, MIL 4: Cashner's mullet not enough to keep Brewers at bay

A strong start and a couple back-and-forth innings go in the Brew crew's favor.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

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.
