Padres' Pierce Johnson: Pitches one inning, takes loss
1 min read
Johnson (3-3) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers after allowing one run on one hit and a walk while fanning two across one inning.
Johnson worked as the opener in this bullpen game but continued his season-long trend, as he hasn't pitched more than one inning in any of his 49 appearances on the year. Despite that fact, it's worth noting Johnson has recorded multiple strikeouts in six of his last eight outings and owns a 13:4 K:BB in 7.2 innings over that span.
