Youngsters spark team to victory


San Diego Padres 2 – Washington Nationals 1

The team was able to flip the score from yesterday to take a 2-1 win. Both youngsters Blake Tekotte and Logan Forsythe were in the lineup and were able to put a little spark in the offense. Tekotte added a double and a triple to the offense and drove in a run. He reached base 3 times and scored a run.

Forsythe also got his first major league hit and was part of turning 3 double plays. Hopefully the youngsters will continue to contribute to the offense and get playing time.

Tim Stauffer picked up his first victory of the season. He pitched 7 strong innings only giving up 1 run on a Laynce Nix home run. Stauffer struggled out the gates walking the bases loaded on 3 straight walks, but was able to induce a double play to work himself out of it.

Tomorrow’s game is early at 10:30. Hopefully we take the series with a win!
