Padres Start Final Series With Loss

San Diego drops game 160 in San Francisco

The Padres were better in 2017 than pretty much anyone gave them credit for. However, they started their final series of the season the way most people thought they would play this year.

San Diego lost 8-0 to the Giants in San Francisco. Padres starter Jordan Lyles was not very good in his final start of the season. Lyles was … let’s go with inefficient. He gave up seven runs in 3.2 innings but threw an astounding 102 pitches in the process.

The middle of the Giants order did a boatload of damage. Joe Panik, Denard Span, Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford and Pablo Sandoval (2-through-6 in the lineup) went a combined 13-for-21 with all eight RBI.

On the other hand the Padres could not get anything going against Giants right-hander Chris Stratton, although they had chances. The Friars put at least one baserunner on in each of the first five innings.

Their best scoring chance came in the 3rd when Yangervis Solarte doubled to right field. Wil Myers tried to score and had the relay through beat but made a terrible slide into home plate and was tagged out by former Padres catcher Nick Hundley.

On Saturday Jhoulys Chacin makes his final start of the year against Matt Cain.
