The San Diego Padres dominated the Baltimore Orioles en route to an 8-1 win at Petco Park on Monday evening. We provide a recap and victory highlights.
The San Diego Padres finally showed up on offense, cruising to their 50th win of the season against the Baltimore Orioles. It’s been a while since they’ve had a win like this.
The Friars came out of the gate swinging, as Fernando Tatis Jr. smacked his 18th home run of the season — a 400-footer — on the game’s very first pitch. Franmil Reyes joined the party and followed up with his own 433-foot dinger — on the very next pitch.

The Padres never looked back. San Diego went on to post five dingers on the night to tie a franchise record for the most homers in a game. Eric Hosmer had himself a two-homer night, while Luis Urías notched his first major league long ball of 2019. San Diego Padres vs Baltimore Orioles Live Stream
It was truly a team effort with every starter but Hunter Renfroe recording a hit. Wil Myers made a fantastic play on defense to quash an Orioles rally in the sixth, and the bullpen did its job; Andres Muñoz pitched 1.2 scoreless innings of relief, while Robbie Erlin finished the game with three strikeouts and no runs allowed.
Chris Paddack had a strong outing as well, throwing 5.1 innings and giving up only one run off three hits. He recorded five strikeouts and walked two batters. San Diego Padres vs Baltimore Orioles Live Stream
Paddack officially hit 100 innings on the season and has a 2.78 ERA and 0.897 WHIP. To say the rookie’s been impressive would be a massive understatement. He has a long, bright future ahead of him and he’s earned his spot on the Padres rotation.
