Medica just misses cycle in Padres’ loss
Question of the Day
PHOENIX (AP) - For their 46 years, the San Diego Padres never have had a player hit for the cycle.
He would have had the single, too, had his screaming line drive dropped by third baseman Martin Prado not been ruled an error.
“That would have been neat,” he said when told what he nearly accomplished.
Medica said it “definitely” could have been ruled a hit.
“Prado is great player,” he said. “I don’t know if they are thinking it might be routine for him.”
Medica had one last chance in the ninth, but he flied out to center.
Goldschmidt’s homer traveled an estimated 470 feet, the farthest he can remember hitting one.
Arizona, taking two of three from the Padres, chased starter Tim Stauffer (2-1) after just one-third of an inning.
