Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a morning at Starbucks. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (49-65) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (57-55), 4-0, in the series finale at PNC Park.
Christian Friedrich (4-8, 4.84) gave up four runs in six innings on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts. David Freese‘s single in the first inning scored Josh Harrison for the first run. Freese doubled in the third inning to drive in Starling Marte and later scored on Gregory Polanco‘s single. In the fourth inning, Harrison singled to score Sean Rodriguez.
Jameson Taillon (3-2, 2.85) shutout the Padres with three hits and two walks while striking out four over eight innings. Nick Noonan made his first Major League start at shortstop and got his first Major League hit in the third inning. Noonan took second on a sacrifice bunt by Friedrich, Travis Jankowski walked, but Wil Myers grounded out to end the inning. In the ninth inning, Myers singled off Neftali Perez to lead off, took second on defensive indifference and Ryan Schimpf walked. Tony Watson came in to face Jabari Blash, who then struck out on three pitches to end the game. Those two innings were the closest the Padres came to getting on the board.
