SAN DIEGO (AP) – Great swings by Kyle Schwarber and JT Realmuto of the Philadelphia Phillies ended Joe Musgrove’s undefeated start in 2022.
Schwarber hit a two-pointer homer and Realmuto added a three-point shot later in the sixth inning for the Phillies, who brought Musgrove his first loss and cut a three-game losing streak with a 6-2 win over the San Diego Padres. Thursday night.
Masgrove (8-1) saw his ERA rise from 1.59, which was the second lowest among the seniors, to 2.12. The large right-hand man from the suburb of El Cajon was activated from the list of injured COVID-19 earlier in the day. He was on the roster last Friday, a day after scoring seven strong innings in a Chicago Cubs win.
“We hit some balls hard,” Schwarber said. “The guy is a good pizzeria. He has things and he has four or five pitches, two really plus the breaking balls. We managed to take advantage of some mistakes. We threw some good bats together and so you go. To beat guys like that.
“I’ve seen him go back to his days in Pittsburgh for a long time,” Schwarber added. “It was always a good thing. “I’m not shocked by the year he has, but obviously it was very nice to go out there and beat him.”
Masgrove crossed four unfortunate appearances before an RBI single by Odubel Herrera equalized to 1.
The Phillies then jumped all over Musgrove in the sixth, including two long balls that just came out of Petco Park.
Bryson Stott took a double lead in front of Schwarber’s homer in the center, which hit something behind the fence and bounced back onto the court. He was in his 20s. Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos scored in a row single-out before Realmuto hit a cross from the top of the right-hand wall. It was the fourth in total and the first since May 26.
“We just gave him some good bats,” said Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson. “We struggled a bit and as soon as we gained some momentum, we just kept it. We took a little energy and kept moving with her. “
Musgrove allowed six runs and seven hits in six runs, with just one hit and one walk. It was the first time this year that it allowed him more than two winning runs.
The big turnout was won by Ranger Suarez (6-4), who entered eighth place for the first time this season. Allowed two runs and seven hits in 7 1/3 innings, hit three and walked two.
Eric Hosmer was ahead of the second, sixth. The Padres added a streak to the eighth on Jorge Alfaro’s ground.
Padres slugger Manny Machado lost his fourth consecutive game with a left ankle sprain, but did some agility exercises and played on the court and then hit a T-shirt inside the cage. San Diego director Bob Melvin was a keen observer from the dugout. “I do not know how he does it. “Basically you look at the discoloration, it looks like the swelling has subsided, but it does not seem to be feeling very well,” Melvin said. “I do not think anything with him at the moment surprises me.”
The Padres believe that Machado, who has a season with MVP caliber, will be able to avoid the injury list. “We are willing to sit here and wait a few more days to see how he does it, even if it is an impressive appearance,” Melvin said. “It would not surprise me if this happens in these 10 days.”
NO CRONEY ON BOBBLEHEAD NIGHT
Padres’ second key player, Jake Cronenworth, scored a rare game on his bamboo night. “It’s a bubbly day that gives him a little more time to sign, possibly before the game, maybe a little more interaction with the fans,” Melvin joked. The manager said the break had been planned for some time. “I’m sorry,” he added. DH Luke Voit also did the night with a thigh problem.
Padres: Put LHP Adrian Morejon on the 15-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation.
Phillies RHP Aaron Nola (4-4, 3.11 ERA), Padres catcher brother Austin Nola, and San Diego LHP rookie MacKenzie Gore (4-3, 3.64) are scheduled to start Friday night.
