Indians rout Padres 16-4 at U of San Diego
SAN DIEGO (AP) Asdrubal Cabrera and Yan Gomes each hit a three-run homer, Carlos Santana had a solo shot and the Cleveland Indians routed the San Diego Padres 16-4 Friday night at the University of San Diego’s Fowler Park.
The Indians batted around in both of the first two innings, scoring seven runs in each frame.
This was the opener of a two-game series at Fowler Park, named for Padres vice chairman Ron Fowler, who donated $10 million for its construction. Fowler is chairman of the board of trustees at USD.
Cabrera homered to right in the first off Matt Wisler and hit an RBI single in the second just ahead of Gomes’ homer to right-center.
Cleveland right-hander Zach McAllister struck out six and held San Diego to two runs and three hits in four innings.
