Marlins walk off, offense can’t break through in loss

Rookie Tatis Jr.’s home run not enough to save the game

MLB: San Diego Padres at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

On July 18th, the Padres played the final game of the Marlins series and unfortunately took the loss. Even though it was a close game, the Padres fell short in the 9th inning.

Dinelson Lamet took the mound today for four innings. Lamet gave up 6 hits and 3 runs but got 5 strikeouts. Matt Strahm, Andres Munoz, and Craig Stammen also came in and kept the Marlins off the board, but Trey Wingenter gave up a run that gave the Marlins the win. I can’t harp on the pitching staff too much today. Majority of the pitching staff did do a good job. It just wasn’t enough to muster up a win.

In the second inning, Hunter Renfroe scored on a sacrifice fly ball by Austin Hedges. In the 5th, our favorite rookie hit a much-needed home run.

It was a close game, and hopefully the Padres can pull through tomorrow against the Chicago Cubs. Eric Lauer, a Padre favorite is starting against Jon Lester. Falling further behind, the Padres could really use a win.
