It was a night to forget for Saratoga native Tim Stauffer.

The San Diego starting pitcher allowed five homeruns in the first three innings. The Cincinnati Reds hit seven in all — matching an MLB record — in a 13-1 victory over the Padres.

Stauffer allowed nine earned runs over three innings.   He gave up five homers during that time, tying Woody Williams’ club record for most allowed in a game.

In a in a 9-8 loss to the Mets on Monday, the right-hander gave up three HRs - his previous career high.  The eight homers allowed in consecutive starts also is a club record. 

“You never expect to be embarrassed out there, and that’s what happened today,” Stauffer told the Associated Press.

The Spa Catholic graduate is now 7-9 on the season with a 3.53 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  He has given up 13 runs in his last 10 innings.
