GAME OF THE WEEK REVIEW: Reds Shutout Padres 6-0
- Updated: July 30, 2016
Friday July 29, 2016 – On a day where the Padres traded both Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea to the Miami Marlins in a 7 player trade, the hangover was definitely imminent as they played the Cincinnati Reds and lost 6-0 at Petco Park.
Edwin Jackson gave up 4 runs in the first inning, including two RBIs via Eugenio Suarez’s 8th double of the season. Suarez would later get another pair of RBIs off a single in the fifth. Jackson would go five innings, giving up 10 hits and only striking out 3. He goes to 1-2 on the season, rocketing his ERA to 5.64.
Brandon Finnegan went six shoutout innings, giving up four hits and getting five strikeouts while walking three. It was a solid pitching performance that bumped his record up to 6-8.
With trade rumors of Jay Bruce circling around the trade deadline for the second straight year, he drove in one run with a sacrifice fly in the first off Jackson, scoring Zack Cozart, who grabbed a three bagger as the second batter of the game. The Cozart triple in the first was a scary situation, as Travis Jankowski and Alex Dickerson collided trying to catch the ball. Dickerson wound up leaving the game with an injury that was later described as a hip contusion. He is day-to-day.
