The San Diego Padres would score the games first run in the top of the 2nd as Rymer Liriano and Alexi Amarista scored on a two-run double by Andrew Cashner to give the San Diego Padres a 2-0 lead. I guess after receiving little to no run support in his last 11 starts, Cashner give himself run support today.
Cashner would score on an RBI single by Cory Spangenberg to extend the San Diego Padres lead to 3-0.
The San Diego Padres would blow the game open in the top of the third, as after a lead-off walk to Yasmani Grandal, Jedd Gyorko would blast his 10th homer of the season to extend the Padres lead to 5-0.
At this point with only a few games left in the season your basically looking for positives from the Padres heading into next season. While overall Gyorko still has under-performed this season, it still is a good sign to see him healthy and performing better in the 2nd half of the season.
Friars on Base
Andrew Cashner improved (3-7) on the season for the San Diego Padres, after allowing only two runs on nine hits with two strikeouts in seven innings of work.
For Cashner due to injuries and poor run support, this was his first win since April 16 agaisnt the Colorado Rockies earlier this season.
Ian Kennedy (10-12) takes the mound for the San Diego Padres today, as he looks for his first win against the Los Angeles Dodgers this season. Dan Haren (12-10) will take the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
