Schimp's 4 RBIs and Richard's gem lifts Padres to 14-1 win

BY foxsports • September 9, 2016

SAN DIEGO (AP) Ryan Schimpf hit a three-run homer and tied a career-high with four RBIs and Clayton Richard pitched seven scoreless innings as the San Diego Padres crushed the Colorado Rockies 14-1 on Thursday night.

Schimpf, a rookie second baseman, hit his 18th home run of the season, all coming since July 1.

Richard (2-3) was sharp as he scattered six hits, walked two and had eight strikeouts.

After two earlier stints with the Padres, Richard was claimed off waivers when released by the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 3. It was his second impressive start since Aug. 27, when he blanked the Miami Marlins over seven innings in a win.

Keith Hessler and Brandon Morrow pitched the final two innings. Cristhian Adames spoiled the shutout with a one-out homer in the ninth off Morrow.
