Saratoga’s Tim Stauffer Walks 5 As Padres Lose To Dodgers
Saratoga’s Tim Stauffer was going for his 4th straight win on Sunday afternoon.
But 5 walks by the San Diego starting pitcher put an end to his recent hot streak as the Dodgers defeated the Padres, 4-1.
The Spa Catholic graduate allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits, five walks and 1 strikeout in six innings. It was his 7th straight quality start (minimum 6 innings pitched while allowing 3 runs or less).
Stauffer has a 5-6 record this season and will enter the All-Star break with a 2.97 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 90/31 K/BB ratio in 118 innings of work.
The right-hander is the fourth Padres starter since 2000 to go into the All-Star break with an ERA under 3.00 — joining Chris Young (2.00 in 2007), Jake Peavy (2.43 in 2004) and Mat Latos (2.45 in 2010).
