Newcomb (8-2) struck out seven and picked up the win in Saturday's 1-0 victory over the Padres, allowing two hits and a walk over six scoreless innings.

Jose Pirela led off the game with a double and Hunter Renfroe drew a walk with one out, but Newcomb was firmly in control after that, retiring the last 13 batters he faced and throwing 59 of 84 pitches for strikes, including 15 swinging strikes. The left-hander now has nine quality starts in 14 games on the year and has held the opposition off the scoreboard entirely in six of them. He'll take a 2.70 ERA into his next outing Friday at home against the Orioles.
