The Padres faced the Cubs in their second spring outing on Monday afternoon without a number of their notable players, including Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado, and Trent Grisham. Overall, the game was a rather quiet outing as the Padres dropped this one by a lone run by a 1-0 score at Peoria Stadium.
There were a couple of lone bright spots in this one, however. First, Chris Paddack started on the mound and recorded three strikeouts with one walk in two innings of work. He was followed up by 28-year old Daniel Camarena who K’d one and walked one in his two innings pitched. Secondly, 2020 first-round pick Robert Hassell III — or “Bob” as he’s reportedly called by his teammates — came this close hitting one over the center field fence but still managed to hop it over the head of the outfielder for a double. Ha-Seong Kim also recorded his first hit of the spring, as well.
The lone run of the game was scored by Chicago second baseman David Bote off a base hit by DH P.J. Higgins.
The Padres face the Diamondbacks (0-2) tomorrow with the game once again scheduled for 12:10 p.m.
