The Padres stole six bases in a game for the second time this season and took advantage of a rather unsually-off day by starter Corbin Burnes to finally earn a victory over the Brewers with 7-1 decision on Tuesday evening. Until last night, the Padres had suffered their only sweep of the season by the Brewers and had lost four-straight against Milwaukee.
Coming into Tuesday’s game, Burnes had only allowed a pair walks the entire season. He would end up allowing three in this one alone. His errors also included hitting one batter and tossing another wild pitch.
Joe Musgrove enjoyed an efficient outing, working just under five full innings and striking out six with one walk and one hit allowed. Tim Hill (one), Craig Stammen (two), and Emilio Pagan (one) combined to strikeout seven over the games final 4 1⁄3 innings.
The Padres scored their opening run of the game when Victor Caratini hustled home to beat a throwback after Brewers catcher Omar Narvaez initially gunned it to second in an attempt to pick of Ha-Seong Kim. They missed on both opportunities and Kim also managed to steal third. Jurickson Profar then brought Kim home for the first of his two RBIs on the night.
Four more runs would be scored by the Friars across the sixth and seventh innings, including a sac fly by Fernado Tatis Jr. and an RBI single by Eric Hosmer. Tatis would score the team’s seventh and final run in the eighth after tapping home off a wild pitch by Josh Lindblom.
The Padres will have the chance to clinch a share of the series this evening. Game time is set for 4:40 p.m.. Chris Paddack (2-3, 3.96 ERA) and Adrian Houser (3-5, 4.53 ERA) will be on the mound.
