National League Game Summary - San Diego at St. Louis



(Friday, August 15)

Final Score: St. Louis 4, San Diego 2

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Lance Lynn pitched six strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals held off the San Diego Padres, 4-2, in the second contest of a four-game series.

Lynn (13-8) surrendered six hits, a run, walked one and had six strikeouts.

"Another good night of using his fastball, the two-seam, four-seam," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said of Lynn. "I saw some good breaking balls too. He has a real nice feel for all of his pitches right now."

Matt Adams and Jhonny Peralta each had a pair of hits and an RBI for the Cardinals, who posted their third straight win. Pinch-hitter Oscar Taveras had a run-scoring single.

Will Venable doubled in San Diego's first run in the fifth inning and pinch- hitter Yasmani Grandal hit a two-out homer off Pat Neshek in the ninth.

Tyson Ross (11-11) loaded the bases on walks in the first inning and ended up yielding five hits and three runs over six frames to suffer his first loss since July 13 at Dodger Stadium. The right-hander had been 4-0 over a five- start span.

"It's kind of hard when you shoot yourself in the foot like that," Ross said of the first inning. "Innings two through six were a lot better than the first one."

The Padres have lost back-to-back contests since a five-game winning streak.

Matt Carpenter, Kolten Wong and Matt Holliday all walked to start the first. Adams then lined a hit to center. Peralta plated Wong with a grounder that produced an out at second.

Wong singled in Jon Jay in the fourth before Venable's double to right-center scored Jace Peterson in the fifth. The Padres failed to add on, though, as Tommy Medica struck out and Seth Smith popped out to leave two runners in scoring position.

Taveras singled in Jay in the eighth, and Neshek, after giving up Grandal's blast to center, surrendered a double to Chris Nelson. Venable struck out swinging to end the game and give Neshek his fourth save.

Game Notes

The Cardinals moved to 22-7 against the Padres in the current Busch Stadium .... Neshek has allowed runs in just five of his 55 games this season ... The Padres left eight men on base, one less than St. Louis.
