Ross Ohlendorf pitched 4 1/3 innings of one-run relief to earn just his second big league win since July of 2010, a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday afternoon.
Mike Fiers (1-2), making his third start of the season for the Brewers, allowed 4-runs and a career-high 10 hits in 6 innings to get saddled with the loss.
San Diego started hard-throwing Andrew Cashner, making his first start of the season and just the second in his 3-year career. The 25-year old Cashner hit 100 mph on the radar gun on a number of pitches. His 47 pitch outing lasted 2 1/3 innings before Ohlendorf came on. Cashner had made 27 relief appearances this season before getting the starting nod. He’s expected to be sent to the minors to work on starting and getting extended.
Cashner became the 11th pitcher to start a game for the Padres this season.
The Brewers went 2 for 8 with runners in scoring position. They’re 1-1 with the Padres in the series. The finale is this afternoon at Miller Park.
