Richard pitches well in his 2nd outing

Thursday August 6, 2009

In an otherwise outstanding outing against the New York Mets at Petco tonight, 3 walks and an error by Tony Gwynn Jr. in the 6th inning limited Clayton Richard’s 2nd start as a San Diego Padre to 5 2/3 innings.

The Padres offense put up 7 runs in the first 3 innings paced by Adrian Gonzalez’s 29th home run and 3 rbi to stake Richard to a big lead and he responded with 5 strong innings.

His line – 5.2 IP/5 hits/3 runs/0 earned runs/4 walks/5 k’s/0 home runs.
Richard threw 99 pitches, 60 for strikes, before being pulled after walking Omir Santos.

Yahoo seems to think that the runs were earned, but since there was an error, none of the runs that followed are earned. Regardless, if the bullpen can hold the lead, Richard will end the evening with his 2nd win in a Padres uniform.
