Yasiel Puig’s injury-hampered year continues. Last night he left the Dodgers-A’s game with hamstring tightness after running out a single in the eighth inning. He’ll have an MRI this morning.
Puig missed two months with a pulled hamstring earlier this year. He said after the game this one doesn’t feel as serious as that one, but the MRI will let everyone know for sure.
Puig is hitting .250/.320/.434 with 10 homers and 35 RBI on the season. When he went down with his first hamstring injury he was hitting .279/.380/.465.
Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.
Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.
The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.
Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.
Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
