Let it be known, for every long span of scoreless innings for the Padres there will be a game packed full of runs to follow. Tonight, following an ugly sweep from the Giants, the Pads piled on runs at every turn, and saw yet another solid pitching effort.
Christian Friedrich took the Dbacks head on, and emerged victorious. He went a full 7-innings giving up not a single run. In his last 3 starts, he has only given up 3 earned runs. Tonight, he gave up only 3 hits and struck out 5. He threw just over a hundred pitches (104) with over half of them strikes (65). The runs from Arizona would come from relievers Keith Hessler and Luis Perdomo. Not that it came even close to mattering.
The 18-hit San Diego offensive feast resulted in 10 runs, and resulted in almost every Padre getting a hit. Jon Jay, Travis Jankowski, Yangervis Solarte, and Derek Norris all had multi-hit nights. Oh yeah, and out of all those hits, 4 of them were home runs.
- Kemp knocks a solo dinger to center field
- Norris lifts a home run to left-center
- Solarte mashes his second homer of the year
- Solarte crushes his second homer of the game
Outside of that, Melvin Upton Jr. and Wil Myers both had RBI-singles and Norris notched a two-run RBI-double.
i'd say that's a pretty damn good night considering the hellscape that Padres baseball was over the weekend. Tomorrow, Cesar Vargas and the squad will get the chance to take further advantage of the generous Arizona hospitality. The Pads will get the chance to face off against Zack Grienke in the newly donned Dbacks uniform.
