Musgrove Sharp, Hosmer Homers, Padres Beat Marlins 8-3
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Joe Musgrove effectively displayed his heavy dose of breaking pitches, tossing six strong innings and striking out eight to lead the San Diego Padres over the Miami Marlins 8-3. Coming into the game, Musgrove was the only major league pitcher with 20-plus starts this year to throw breaking balls on more than half of his deliveries. He kept the Marlins off-balance, surrendering only one run and five hits while lowering his ERA to 2.81. Eric Hosmer hit an early homer, then added an RBI single in a four-run eighth that broke open the game.
