NoteCARDS v Padres ... after 8 innings

Padres 3
Cardinals 2

6th inning:

  • Kelvin Jimenez, recently called up from Triple-A Memphis, relieves Jaime Garcia to start the 6th inning.
  • (Garcia pitched 5.0 innings, gave up 3 runs, all earned, walked 1, struck out 4)
  • The Cardinals could do nothing with an Aaron Miles single.

7th inning:
No action of consequence.

8th inning:
  • Troy Glaus starts things off with a single.
  • Glaus advances to second base when Chris Duncan flies out to center field, the Padres' Scott Hairston throwing long to first base as Glaus had been halfway. No one is covering first base, however, and Glaus is able to tag up and dash to second base.
  • Jason LaRue singles to left field, Glaus advancing to third base.
  • Albert Pujols is announced as a pinch hitter and Padres' manager Bud Black counters by changing pitchers, going with reliever Mike Adams.
  • Pujols accomplishes a sacrifice fly to left field, Glaus scoring, cutting the Padres' lead to one.
