Padres shut down by Phillies, 2-1

Peter Bourjos, Christian Bethancourt

The San Diego Padres got another strong pitching performance by youngster Colin Rea, who gave up just 1 earned run in 7 innings, but were not able to score against the Philadelphia Phillies until the final out of the game. After an Alexei Ramirez pop-out, the team’s hopes for a victory were lost.

While the Padres were able to put 8 men on base, they struggled to get the bat on the ball with runners in scoring position. In the top of the 8th, Matt Kemp and Wil Myers were struck out with the bases loaded. Combined, Kemp and Myers went 1-8 with 4 strikeouts in this game.

Errors were the story of the day, with the Padres committing three of them on their infield.

The Padres are now 3-3 on this road trip, after going 0-3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers to start the season, and will need to win tomorrow’s afternoon game in Philadelphia (starting at 10am PT) if they want to return home with a winning record on the road.

Drew Pomeranz will match up again Vince Velasquez in tomorrow’s matchup, and you can listen to the game on The Mighty 1090.
