Padres led by bullpen in 4-3 win over Phillies

San Diego Padres 1B/OF Wil Myers

The San Diego Padres got strong performances from six different pitchers on their way to a 4-3 road victory in Philadelphia over the Phillies.

Andrew Cashner pitched better in the hitter-friendly ballpark than he did against the Los Angeles Dodgers last week, giving up just 3 runs in 5.0 innings, before handing the game over to a very capable Padres bullpen.

Brad Hand, Kevin Quackenbush, Carlos Villanueva, and Brandon Maurer combined to pitch 3.0 scoreless innings. Fernando Rodney picked up his first save of the season after pitching a scoreless 9th.

Unlike previous wins by the Padres, the offense was someone modest in this one. No player had more than 1 RBI, and only Wil Myers hit a home run. It truly was a team effort to outscore the Phillies, just as it was a team effort to keep them off the board in the later innings.

The San Diego Padres are now 3-4 and will be looking to get back to .500 with a win tomorrow. That game starts at 4:05pm PT, and you can listen to it live on The Mighty 1090!
