The Padres lose today, but Mejía has arrived. He showed up for a quick at bat, striking out, and was among the 13 other Friar strikeouts as Robbie Ray and the Diamondbacks made quick work of the San Diego lineup.
Joey Lucchesi had a fair outing, giving up 2 earned runs in 5 innings while striking out 6. Unfortunately, the following act of Robert Stock and Phil Maton conceded 4 additional runs, putting the D-Backs up 6-0 from the 7th inning on.
Meanwhile, Galvis, Renfroe, and Margot all had multiple strikeout days as the rest of the Pads were stumped by Ray. Franmil Reyes was the first to breakup a no-hitter going into the 5th inning, recording one of the only three hits for the day (Hedges, Urias.)
Fair enough, as the Diamondbacks are now only a game and a half behind the Rockies for the NL West. The Pads will take a quick break tomorrow and hit Cincinnati for a 4-game series against the Reds before 2 games against the Mariners and 2 days off before their second to last homestand of the season.
