The Padres recorded their third tie of spring ball with a 3-3 split against the Indians on Sunday afternoon. Fernando Tatis Jr. led San Diego’s offense as he accounted for two of his team’s three runs, including an RBI double to get the scoring started on the day. He would score two batters later on a wild pitch by Cleveland pitcher Triston McKenzie.
Joe Musgrove looked like he was in mid-season form as San Diego’s starter on the mound. In five innings, the former Pirate struck out six batters and walked two others while allowing zero hits. He also went two-for-two at the plate and ran in two runs.
Mackenzie Gore struggled following Musgrove as he allowed a pair of runs and four hits in just over an inning of work. 31-year old Nick Ramirez also recorded a pair of K’s.
Indians left fielder Josh Naylor accounted for all three of the team’s RBIs. McKenzie struck out three for Cleveland but allowed seven hits and walked two.
The Padres face the Rockies tomorrow afternoon at 12:10 p.m. in the spring finale.
