Padres' Joey Lucchesi: Stays hot in win
Lucchesi (2-0) struck out nine over six innings while allowing one run on five hits en route to earning the win over the Giants on Sunday.
The young left-hander turned in another strong outing, and the nine-strikeout, zero-walk performance runs his K:BB to a terrific 25:4 while lowering his ERA to 1.66. The fact that Lucchesi had had just 10 appearances prior to this season above High-A -- all last year at Double-A San Antonio -- could scare away some, but thus far he's given no reason to think his hot start is a fluke. He's slated to take his next turn through the rotation Saturday at Arizona.
