San Diego Padres
Descalso lined a 1-2 pitch from Anthony Bass into the Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Deck in right-center with one out in the eighth.
The Padres chased St. Louis rookie Shelby Miller in the sixth, when they scored two runs on three walks, one hit and a hit batter.
Jedd Gyorko is there to provide a solid bat in the lineup, and he could very well emerge as one of the league’s best offensive second baseman.
Outfielder played for Hickman H.S. in Columbia and collegiately at the University of Miami.
St. Louis put a runner on third with one out in the ninth but was unable to score.
The only saving grace for the Cardinals is that the teams directly behind them have played as bad or worse then them.
Jaime Garcia, now 1-3 since returning from the DL in mid-August, pitched only 3.0 innings allowing 4 earned runs on 7 hits and 3 walks.
