Padres tie MLB record by starting with 26 scoreless innings

Padres tie MLB record by starting with 26 scoreless innings

The San Diego Padres have become the first team in Major League history to be shut out in its first three games of a season.

Fact: The San Diego Padres have been blanked in each of their first three games of the 2016 season, making them the first team in Major League Baseball history to be held scoreless through their first 27 innings of the season.

The Padres surpassed the previous record set by the 1943 St. Louis Cardinals when they failed to score in the eighth inning against Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. "A lot of us were excited for him, but a lot of us were upset that he hit a home run before us". He allowed five hits, all singles, and struck out four in six scoreless innings.

Unlike their hapless efforts against Clayton Kershaw on Monday and Scott Kazmir on Tuesday, the Padres at least threatened to score on Wednesday. LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will throw a two-inning, simulated game Thursday as he continues his rehabilitation.

"There is still perspective here", said Green after his team was outscored 25-0 over the three game series. San Diego had a legitimate gripe when Cory Spangenberg appeared to score on a ground ball, but was called out and somehow upheld upon review. Registering four innings of work, he has struck out two opposing batters while allowing just three hits and no earned runs. Carl Crawford singled in Puig.

Chase Utley tripled on Cashner's sixth pitch and scored on Justin Turner's one-out RBI. But I believe in these guys in the locker room and I believe in myself and there's no doubt we will come out of it. It's tough any time you lose but especially to those guys.

Nationals 3, Braves 1: Pinch-hitter Matt den Dekker, recalled from the minors earlier in the day, had a tiebreaking, two-run double in a three-run seventh inning for Washington.

Los Angeles hopes to have catcher Yasmani Grandal (forearm) and second baseman Howie Kendrick (calf) back in time for Tuesday's home opener, but the duo haven't been missed.

"For the most part when teams get rolling on both ends it gets contagious", he said.

"It was fun to watch him", Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, "a young kid who has dreamt of this his whole life and shows up and is probably better than his dream was " that first game, that first series....

Now, if Major League Baseball could be convinced to let the Dodgers play the Padres all 162 games this season, they could clinch a playoff spot by the All-Star break. Maeda, Kershaw and Kazmir combined to go 2-for-9 at the plate in the series for a. 222 batting average, or almost twice the Padres' mark of.
