Indians McAllister shuts down Padres 2-0 in Game 1
Question of the Day
The Padres, who were blanked 2-0 in the first game Wednesday against Cleveland, managed to grind out a 2-1 win in game two for a split of the doubleheader.
Robbie Erlin allowed one run in six innings and Chase Headley’s single in the sixth drove in the go-ahead run as San Diego salvaged something from a day that saw temperatures plunge near the freezing mark.
Erlin (1-0) held the Indians to four hits, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter. Three relievers blanked the Indians, including Huston Street, who pitched the ninth for his third save.
San Diego scored in the first, thanks in part to a call on the field that was ruled a no-catch by first base umpire Bob Davidson, even though Indians right fielder Elliot Johnson appeared to have made the play on a ball hit by Chris Denorfia. Indians manager Terry Francona used his challenge to have the play reviewed, but replay officials in New York upheld the call on the field.
Trevor Bauer (0-1), added to the roster to start the game, allowed two runs and struck out a career-high eight in six innings.
The run batted in was the first in 32 at-bats this season for Headley.
“It was great for it to fall in,” said Headley, who is batting .125 in eight games. “We needed it as a team. I needed it personally.”
Johnson made a long run for Denorfia’s fly ball and crashed into the fence in front of San Diego’s bullpen. Johnson had the ball in his glove momentarily, but dropped it as he transferred it to make a throw. Davidson ruled Johnson didn’t have control of the ball long enough and Francona immediately came out to talk with the umpire.
After a brief discussion, Francona challenged the call. After a delay of two minutes, the call stood. Cabrera went to third and the play was scored a double. Seth Smith’s groundout scored Cabrera as the crowd’s boos grew louder.
