Padres Recap: Padres Lose Third In A Row


The Pat MurphySan Diego Padres has begun, unfortunately with a another late inning lose to the team with the worst record in the American League, the Oakland A’s; the Padres third loss in a row.

The Padres offense actually out hit the A’s and had a chance to win the game in the later innings, but the A’s were able to capitalize on some errors by the Padres pitching.

Andrew Cashner started for the Padres and lowered his trade value more with only five innings pitched and five runs surrendered. Cashner is now a very disappointing 2-8, with a 4.45 ERA.

Craig Kimbrel continues to suck when not in save situations, giving up the game-losing run in the ninth inning and collecting in second lose of the season (1-2).

On a positive note rookie catcher Austin Hedges hit his first homerun of the season. The young catcher has struggled with the bat since being called up with just a .107 BA. Hopefully this is a sign Hedges is starting to catch up with major league pitching.

The Padres will look to return the favor as they head up to Oakland for another two game series with the A’s.
