Padres Recap: June 7th, 2015


Andrew Cashner did not have it today, but for once that didn’t sink the San Diego Padres, whose revived offense showed their power again on the Cinncinnati Reds in today’s 9-7 come from behind victory.

Cashner got off to a rough start right away, giving up three runs in the first inning alone. Cash finished with only 5.2 innings pitched, eight hits, and seven runs.

The Pads quickly found themselves down 0-4, then our offense finally kicked in starting in the fourth with a solo Matt Kemp (3-4) homerun. The Reds scored two more runs to make it at 1-6 game, then it all changed…

Kemp hit a two-run double in the sixth, then Yonder Alonso (3-5) hit a Grand Slam in the seventh to tie the game at seven. That score was short lived, Kemp drove in another two runs in the eighth with a single.

Craig Kimbrel came in the bottom of the ninth, and made it interesting, but still was able to get the save and the 9-7 win for the Padres.

The Padres haven’t lost a game since Alonso returned form the DL as our winning streak is now at four games.

Odrisamer Despaigne will face rumored Padres trade target, Johnny Cueto, tomorrow. A tough opponent the Padres will have to step up their offense again for to get the series sweep.

On a side-note, congratulations to American Pharoah for winning the Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown, ending a 37 year drought…now maybe we won’t have to hear about it on ESPN every damn year.
