Hosmer Headlines Padres Win: Eric Hosmer’s 2 Hits, 3 Runs and 2 RBI Lead San Diego To Victory – NBC 7 San Diego
Just a few days ago, around the Major League Baseball Trade deadline, the question was what will the Padres do with Eric Hosmer?
How about play him!
The Padres first baseman had 2 hits, including a solo homer, 2 runs batted in and scored 3 runs leading San Diego to an 8-3 win against the Miami Marlins.
With the win, the Padres gained a half-game on the idle Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants. San Diego now trails 1st place San Francisco by 7 games in the National League West and 2nd place Los Angeles by 3 games. The Padres now lead the Cincinnati Reds by 3.5 games for the second wild card spot.
Joe Musgrove continued the Padres’ recent trend of improved starting pitching by going 6 innings, allowing just 1 run and striking out 8.
The Padres and Marlins continue their 3-game series Tuesday night at Petco Park.
