The San Diego Padres racked up nine runs in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Padres got things started in the first inning after Hunter Renfroe grounded into a double play that scored Travis Jankowski. Jankowski was able to steal second base earlier in the inning to place him in scoring position for Hunter Renfroe.

The first inning was not the only inning in which Jankowski swiped a bag. He was able steal a base for a career high four times on Sunday, which gives him nineteen stolen bases on the season. Jankowski scored every inning in which he stole a base.

Jankowski was not the only Padre lighting it up offensively. With bases loaded and two outs in the third inning, former Phillies’ shortstop Freddy Galvis, hit a 406 ft. grand slam to center field. It was Galvis’ first career grand slam, and the Padres third grand slam of the season.

The Padres were also successful on the hill today, as Joey Lucchesi toed the rubber for the Friars. Lucchesi, who admitted not having his “stuff” today, was able to toss six innings of shutout baseball, allowing only two hits, walking three, and striking out six.
