The San Diego Padres and their usually inept offense managed to do something truly remarkable Thursday night during a 13-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. The Friars scored nine runs in the top of the sixth inning. What’s more, every Padre in the lineup scored a run in that inning. The sixth inning was crazy, as the Padres sent 15 men to the plate in what was their biggest inning since they also scored nine runs on July 20, 2011 against the Marlins. The 15 plate appearances were a first since sending 15 to the plate against the Houston Astros on July 28, 2007. Even more remarkable? San Diego racked up eight hits in the inning, all were singles. You would think in a big inning like that, the offense would be tearing the cover off the ball, but that wasn’t the case. The Friars just managed to find holes all over the field. The inning began with the Padres leading 3-1 and Edwin Jackson on the hill for the Cubs. Jackson promptly walked Yasmani Grandal, before giving up a single to Will Venable to right field. Jackson then left the game with an undisclosed injury and Brian Schlitter replaced him. Jake Goebbert singled to center off Schlitter to load the bases. Then Chris Nelson stepped up to the plate and grounded the ball right to third baseman Luis Valbuena. Valbeuna fielded the ball cleanly but bounced the throw home and catcher John Baker bobbled the ball. Everyone was safe, Grandal scored and the bases were still loaded. Catcher Rene Rivera then laced a single to right field, driving in Venable and Goebbert and sending Nelson to third. Pitcher Tyson Ross was then hit by a pitch to load the bases again. Alexi Amarista followed that with a single to center that scored Nelson and Rivera and sent Ross to second. That made it 8-1 Padres and there were still no outs. Yangervis Solarte then stepped into the batter’s box and walked, leading Cubs manager Rick Renteria to replace Schlitter with Wesley Wright. Wright was greeted by Seth Smith, who singled on a bloop to center, scoring Ross and leaving the bases loaded. Grandal (who started the inning) then struck out looking for the first out of the inning. Venable followed him with another single, scoring Amarista as the bases remained loaded. The score was now 10-1. Goebbert stepped up for a second time in the inning and struck out swinging. But the Padres weren’t done yet, as Nelson followed with a singled to right scoring Solarte and Smith and sending Venable to second. It was 12-1 Padres. Rivera then got back into the box and singled to right, loading the bases once again. Ross then came to the plate as the 15th man to bat in the inning and grounded out to second base. Got all that? If not, highlights of the inning are below. Your browser does not support iframes.
