Cashner lifts Padres past Phillies, 1-0
SAN DIEGO (AP) --- Andrew Cashner pitched a two-hitter for his third career
shutout and the San Diego Padres scored on Cody Asche's fielding error in the
second inning Monday night to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0.
Casher (4-7) allowed two hits, struck out seven and walked one in winning for
the second straight time after going winless since April 16 against Colorado.
Cashner has a franchise-best 17 straight home starts where he's allowed two or
fewer earned runs.
Jerome Williams (3-2) limited the Padres to an unearned run, three hits and two
walks in 7 2-3 innings.
The Padres scored in the second, when Rene Rivera opened the inning with a
double. He scored when Cashner hit a hard grounder to Asche at third. Asche
tried to backhand the ball, but was unable to do more than knock it down in
drawing the error.
