After getting shutout yesterday, the Padres put up some solid offense in the late innings against the Mariners. Unfortunately, some sloppy defense (thankfully, from a couple of scrubs who won't be anywhere near the major league roster) in the seventh inning let Seattle hang a crooked number that the good guys couldn't top.
On the pitching side, several pitchers who might make the 25-man roster had a good day. Philip Humber put up two scoreless innings to start the day. Nick Vincent threw a goose-egg in the fourth, and then Drew Pomeranz picked up a pair of strikeouts in his perfect fifth. Frank Garces got two Ks of his own in an inning and a third.
Offensively, four different Friars hit doubles, including top prospects Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot. But the highlight of the day goes to Christian Bethancourt, who launched a 2-run, 2-out bomb in the bottom of the ninth to bring the Padres within a run of the Mariners.
