ware of just how filthy Dinelson Lamet’s stuff is, Andy Green had come to expect more from the rookie. There isn’t much more to expect from Cory Spangenberg these days. Lamet completed seven innings for the second time in his career, Spangenberg hit his fourth homer in the last three days and the Padres won a second straight game over the Phillies, 8 4, on Tuesday night at Petco Park. Spangenberg also doubled, drove in four runs and swiped his eighth base to continue a run that had seen him enter Tuesday’s game with a.330/.410/.583 batting line, six homers and 19 RBIs since the All Star break. With homers in three straight games – including two on Sunday – Spangenberg’s 12 blasts have tripled his previous career high, when he played in 108 games before missing most of 2016 with a quad injury. “He does a lot Brett Wallace Jersey,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “If I m a fan showing up to the ballpark, he s as fun a guy as there is to watch because he plays hard all the time. He plays with an edge. He can drive the ball out of a ballpark, he can steal a base. “He s a fun guy to watch play baseball.” Spangenberg was involved from the get go Tuesday. He followed Yangervis Solarte’s run scoring double in the first with a two run double and hit a solo homer to straight away center in the fourth. In a four run fifth charged to Phillies’ rookie Mark Leiter Jr. 5 IP, 8 R , 4 ER , Spangenberg also swiped a base and scored on Hector Sanchez’s two run homer to right that opened an 8 2 lead. The late surge helped Lamet 7 4, 4.78 ease through the latter innings. The 25 year old rookie was on a roll in the early goings. Lamet retired http://www.padresfanaticsjersey.com/derek-norris-jersey-c-14.html the first six hitters he faced, six more in a row after a walk to Hyun Soo Kim to start the third and hadn’t allowed a hit when he hit Maikel Franco on the wrist with one out in the fifth. After another quick out, the Phillies collected that elusive first hit Jorge Alfaro’s 114 mph, two run homer to center field, the first of his career. “The moment they broke up the no hitter hitter, that was a mistake,” Sanchez said. “If he throws that pitch down in the zone, it might be a different story. That happens. He s got good stuff. He can do more. Hopefully he keeps working and gets better every game Lamet allowed only two other hits, one of which was erased on a double play ball to end the sixth. After Franco’s two out double in the seventh, he froze Kim with an 84 mph slider at the knees for his seventh strikeout. “I remember one change up today,” Green said. “t was pretty much fastball slider http://www.padresfanaticsjersey.com/alexi-amarista-jersey-c-15.html, and the slider, he really threw some down in the zone that nobody had a chance on. He hung one to Alfaro that got hit – that ball got out of the park as fast as I ve ever seen – and gave up a hard hit ball to Franco. “Outside of that, he was lights out.” Lamet threw 66 of his career high 105 pitches for strikes. He has allowed three or fewer hits in four straight starts and completed the seventh for the first time since June 29. “It was just working ahead, getting ahead early and throwing first pitch strikes http://www.padresfanaticsjersey.com/wil-myers-jersey-c-16.html,” Lamet said through an interpreter. “To me that was the key to getting those extra two innings.” Right hander Carter Capps allowed a hit in the eighth but escaped with his first scoreless inning since returning from his May 2016 Tommy John surgery. “It was good to get him a scoreless inning,” Green said. “He was in strike zone. He s feeling better and better on a big league mound and those are positive things. I know he s going to get back to where he s punching guys out … but overall it s a step in the right direction.” Phillies rookie Rhys Hoskins hit a two run shot off Padres rookie left hander Kyle McGrath in the ninth, Hoskins’ third homer in the last two days.
