Yesterday's Results

Padres 3, Brewers 1

Let's remember the good games that Taylor Jungmann had, not the set of games that comprised his final month of the season. His season came to an end with another rough outing, only pitching three innings and allowing three runs, four hits, and four walks. Meanwhile, the Brewers offense was held mostly in check as the Padres pitchers collected 16 strikeouts, 11 of those coming from Padres starter Ian Kennedy. Jason Rogers, Khris Davis, and Martin Maldonado each struck out three times, and Michael Reed and Yadiel Rivera each had two. The only run for the Brewers came from Shane Peterson, who hit a solo home run.
