Padres vs. Braves: Game 1 Recap
That country boy did it again. Jake went 7 strong, giving up 4 hits and a walk. He had 7 K’s. Bell, Adams, and Hoffman finished the shut-out, 4-0. SCOTTY! The guy had 2 more hits, a triple and a double. He also scored two of the runs. Adrian drove in his 71st. Kouz made an incredible play. He caught a foul ball right in front of the third base wall, and then fell headfirst into the stands! He is amazing. Chase hit a triple. Jody Gerut, pinch-hitting, drove in 2 with a single and an error. Heath and Adams had some problems, but they got out of them. Adams left with two outs in the ninth and the potential tying run on-deck. Trevor came in and went swinging strike, called strike, foul, ball, swinging strike. That’s his 16th save of the year and his 541st of his amazing career. There were 40,232 people at the ballpark, and they were going ballistic when Trevor came in. Peavy is amazing! Once he has a lead, he can just settle in and blow away hittters. He did have a Toby Keith concert to get to, so that might have motivated him. Luke Carlin did really well behind the plate. He threw out a guy trying to steal. It was a great game for our Padres! Chris Young and Josh Bard are going to have rehab assignments next week. Let’s get Maddux his 351st before the All-Star break! Go Padres!
