Bochy calls off Sunday BP after 3-1 loss to Padres
Question of the Day
“We’re all competitive and sometimes when we are not swinging well, we overswing in the cages, we take too many hacks and tire ourselves out,” Bochy said.
“They may be overdoing it. I think if anything, we need to back off. They may be swinging it too much.”
Bochy also said he plans to sit Pablo Sandoval, who is hitting only .171.
San Diego has won seven of 10.
“I knew I hit it pretty good because I was hitting out there in BP,” Morse said.
“Right now, I don’t think we’re pressing,” Morse said. “I don’t think we are trying to do anything out of the ordinary. I just think we hit a rough spot. Our team is too good for us to be stuck in this for too much longer.”
Stults was backed by some nice defense, including center fielder Alexi Amarista’s diving catch of Hunter Pence’s bloop for the second out of the first inning.
Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his first save.
San Diego’s Yonder Alonso hit an RBI single in the second. Cabrera’s triple to right-center with one out in the fifth scored Amarista, who reached after his bunt single landed between the mound and second base, and advanced on Hudson’s error on a pickoff attempt and Stults sacrifice bunt. Cabrera was thrown out trying to score on Will Venable’s grounder to first.
The Padres added on in the eighth when Will Venable doubled to left, advanced on Grandal’s fly ball and scored on a suicide squeeze bunt by pinch-hitter Chris Denorfia.
