SAN DIEGO — Padres pitcher Andrew Cashner kept Dodgers hitters mostly off the bases, surrendering only five hits and issuing one walk in eight strong innings on Sunday as the team ended up splitting the four-games series against the Dodgers with a loss 3-1.
Cashner was charged with one earned run in the seventh when Adrian Gonzalez would come around to score after doubling and Juan Uribe following with a double two batters later.
Two runs would score in the ninth off of closer Huston Street on a two-run homer by Gonzalez.
The Padres begin a three-game series at Petco Park against the Philadelphia Phillies June 24. Eric Stults is expected to start against the Phillies’ Cliff Lee. This will be the 16th start for Stults this season.
On Saturday, the Padres placed pitcher Clayton Richard on the 15-day DL with a left shoulder strain. In subsequent moves, the Padres recalled pitchers Brad Brach and Miles Mikolas from Triple-A Tucson and optioned pitchers Anthony Bass and Brad Boxberger to Tucson.
