    One rookie and one veteran helped secure a 1-0 Padres win over the Mariners on Wednesday afternoon. Paddack’s “Flu Game”
    Chris Paddack was everything today. He was nasty, he was tough, he was consistent, and he was aggressive. In 7 innings pitched, he struck out 9 Seattle Mariners and threw just 83 pitches. Had the San Diego Padres wanted him to throw a complete game shutout, I believe he probably could’ve done it.
