Dinelson Lamet made his spring training debut on Wednesday night and while it wasn’t long nor efficient, it was still good to see him out there at all. Lamet was limited to just one inning of work where he allowed a single run and zero strikeouts.
The Padres ended up dropping this one 7-3, but the biggest news the fans got out of the evening was that Fernando Tatis is going to be fine after exiting Tuesday’s game early with an apparent shoulder injury.
Per Jayce Tingler earlier in the day, Tatis is “doing well” and even tried to convince him to allow him into Wednesday night’s lineup. As of now, Tingler said he expects Tatis to return to the lineup “in the next day or two.”
Tingler says Fernando Tatis Jr. is doing well, lobbied to get in the lineup today. "reported feeling well today" and they expect him back in the next day or 2.— Marty Caswell (@MartyCaswell) March 24, 2021
Now as far as the actual game went, Wil Myers enjoyed a nice night, going 2-for-3 at the plate with solo home run and a single he reached on in the first. The team’s only other RBI came from C.J. Abrams (1-for-1).
Adrian Morejon followed Lamet and pitched a solid 3 1⁄3 innings. He did allow a home run, but led the team on the night with six strikeouts. Jordan Guerrero also K’d two in his one inning of work.
The Giants got a big day out of their starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani who struck out eight in four innings with one home run allowed. Offensively, right fielder Austin Slater recorded a pair of RBIs on a two-run homer.
The Padres are back today with another night game against the Rangers at 6:40 p.m.
