Jason Marquis reached a milestone Monday night at Petco Park. With his fourth strikeout of the game, Marquis reached 1,000 strikeouts in his career. And he kept going, finishing with 10 strikeouts against the Texas Rangers. Marquis became the first Padres pitcher to record 10 strikeouts this season. The last one to do it was left-hander Wade LeBlanc, who struck out 10 Dodgers last Sept. 23. It was also just the second 10-strikeout game of Marquis' career. He struck out a career-high 13 while pitching for the Atlanta Braves on Aug. 3, 2001 in Montreal. The 10 strikeouts aside, the most notable statistic to Marquis' third start as a Padre was the pair of two-out, back-to-back walks he issued in the first resulting in the Rangers' two runs in their 2-1 victory over the Padres at Petco Park. Both runs scored on David Murphy's two-run single. Marquis allowed two runs on five hits and three walks over seven innings. Marquis is 1-2 with a 1.86 earned run average in his three starts with the Padres. Before signing with the Padres, he was 2-4 with a 8.47 ERA with the Minnesota Twins. His season ERA has dropped to 6.08 since joining the Padres.
