Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a couple of days of trying to login to Zoom meetings with fellow Padres fans. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a friendly reminder of what we may have missed while we were stuck in quarantine.
The Padres (29-17) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (23-22), 6-1, in the first game of four at Petco Park. Chris Paddack (3-4, 4.74) allowed one run on one hit and no walks with four strikeouts in two innings, before coming out of the game with a sprained right ankle. Adrian Morejon, Craig Stammen, Matt Strahm, Pierce Johnson, Emilio Pagán, and Dan Altavilla combined for seven shutout innings of relief. Wilmer Flores hit a solo home run in the second inning for the Giants only run.
Trevor Cahill (0-1, 3.05) gave up four runs on five hits and no walks with three strikeouts in three innings. Trent Grisham & Fernando Tatis Jr. scored on a Mitch Moreland double and Austin Nola‘s double drove in Moreland in the first inning. Manny Machado hit a solo home run in the third inning. Jorge Oña hit a solo home run for his first Major League hit in the fourth inning. Jurickson Profar scored on a Tatis Jr. sacrifice fly in the seventh inning.
