Padres' Joey Lucchesi: Logs quality start in loss
Lucchesi (5-4) took the loss against the Giants on Wednesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings.
After giving up a solo home run to Kevin Pillar in the second inning, Lucchesi held the Giants at bay until the fifth. He surrendered a trio of singles and a walk in that frame that allowed another two runs to score, including an unearned run stemming from Josh Naylor's throwing error. The left-hander looked much better this time out compared to his last start against the Giants on April 9, when he gave up a season-worst seven runs through just four innings. Unfortunately, his offense couldn't provide enough run support this time around. Through 13 starts, the 26-year-old owns a 4.11 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 73:20 K:BB. He'll look to get back into the win column in a Monday showdown against the Brewers.
