Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an entire year of watching baseball from anywhere other than the ballpark. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a reminder of what we may have missed while most of us were still staying at home.
The Padres (5-3) defeated the Texas Rangers (3-4) by a score of 3-0 in the first game of three at Globe Life Field. Joe Musgrove (2-0, 0.00) allowed zero runs on ten strikeouts with no walks and only one baserunner in nine innings, recording the first no-hitter in Padres history. Joey Gallo was hit by a pitch in the fourth inning and was the only Ranger to get on base.
Kohei Arihara (0-1, 5.00) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk with one strikeout. Eric Hosmer scored on a challenged play at the plate after Wil Myers‘ double and Myers scored on a flyout by Tommy Pham & error by Leody Taveras in the second inning. Trent Grisham scored on a double by Manny Machado in the third inning.
