Andrew Cashner shuts out Tigers, Padres win 6-0

Andrew Cashner pitched a complete game shutout against the Detroit Tigers as the Padres won the series opener 6-0.  Cashner’s performance provided a much needed jumpstart to Friars 10-game homestand, and helped the Pads secure their fourth win of the season.

The Padres ace no hit the Tigers through five innings, but Rajai Davis broke up the no-no with a single to centerfield just out of the reach of Jedd Gyorko in the top of the sixth.  Davis’ single was the first and last hit off #34.

Cashner had a career-high 11 strikeouts, and allowed two walks.  The Friar faithful gave Cash a well-deserved standing ovation as he fanned Miguel Cabrera to end the game.

The offense finally woke up with six runs and 13 hits.  Every starter except Will Venable got a hit.

Chase Headley went 2 for 4 with an RBI double in the first inning and a 2-run home run in the sixth inning.  The home run was Headley’s first of the season.

The Padres will face two of the best pitchers in baseball this weekend with Justin Verlander going against Ian Kennedy tomorrow (5:40 pm PT start), and Max Scherzer going against Tyson Ross on Sunday (1:10 pm PT start).  Time to refocus after Cashner’s brilliant performance, and bear down!

    A brilliant performance. Gotta be one of the top 5 pitching performances in Padres history last night! If not higher. Good to see Headley and Gyorko swinging better too.
