Andrew Cashner won for just the third time this season after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs in seven innings Saturday.
Cashner struck out six and walked none tonight, a big improvement over his 11/13 K/BB ratio in his previous four starts. His 3-9 record is hardly all his fault -- the Padres defense, for one, deserves a lot of blame, but he's been a disappointment, especially of late. He gets the Cardinals next week, making him a mediocre play in mixed leagues. Jun 28 - 1:30 AM

Date:

Andrew Cashner struggled in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing seven runs (three earned) on four hits over four innings of work.

Cashner punched out five on the afternoon while walking two. All of the damage against him, including three unearned runs, came in a seven-run uprising by the Diamondbacks in the second inning. He was able to bounce back nicely and record a couple of clean frames before departing, but it was too-little, too-late. He'll bring a disappointing 4.55 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into a rematch against these Diamondbacks in San Diego on Saturday.
Jun 21 - 6:48 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed five earned runs in five innings Tuesday in the Padres' loss to the A's.

Cashner escaped with a no-decision because the A's didn't take the lead for good until top of the ninth inning. He walked three and allowed five hits, one of which was a two-run homer by Ben Zobrist. Cashner will carry an ugly 4.45 ERA and 1.45 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Diamondbacks.
Jun 16 - 6:42 PM

Andrew Cashner surrendered four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Braves.

While Cashner almost made it through seven innings, he was ineffective in places, striking out only one and walking four. Two of the four runs against him came in the seventh inning, when the Braves scored via an infield single and a sacrifice fly before Cashner walked off the mound. He carries a 4.16 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. The ERA is fine, though the WHIP needs to come down if that earned run number is going to stay in the low 4.00's. Up next on the docket for Cashner, a Tuesday afternoon home start against the A's.
Jun 11 - 4:50 PM

Andrew Cashner was hammered for seven earned runs in 7 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Reds.

The trouble started right away for Cashner, who gave up a leadoff single to Brandon Phillips in the bottom of the first and then walked Joey Votto. Todd Frazier would smack a two-run double and Brayan Pena drove in the third run of the frame with another double one batter later. Cincinnati managed eight hits in all against Cashner and also drew five walks off the right-hander. And yet the Padres won the game with an outburst against the Reds bullpen. Cashner has a 4.02 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He'll get the Braves on the road next.
Jun 6 - 7:41 PM

Andrew Cashner struck out 12, but allowed six runs (five earned) in 4 2/3 innings to get the loss as the Padres fell 7-0 to the Mets on Monday.

Cashner's line is one of the weirder ones you'll see this season. He gave up 11 hits and didn't issue a walk along with the 12 punch-outs. The Mets rallied for four runs in the fifth inning to chase Cashner from the game. The right-hander is now 2-8 on the season with a 3.46 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a 72/15 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings. Cashner will try to get back in the win column in Cincinnati against the Reds in his next start.
Jun 2 - 12:51 AM

Andrew Cashner yielded three runs on eight hits across seven innings Wednesday in a 5-4 victory versus the Angels.

Cashner struck out six and walked one. The right-hander is pitching pretty well on the whole this season -- he has a 3.00 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 10 starts -- but the win improves his record to a still unsightly 2-7 and the Padres are 2-8 in his starts. Between shoddy defense and an offense that no-shows his outings, Cashner would be forgiven for feeling persecuted. His prognosis will improve as his luck normalizes, as it did tonight (zero errors, five runs of support).
May 28 - 1:09 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Cashner struck out six, but he was shelled for nine hits and walked two in the ugly outing. He's now 1-7 on the year, though he has pitched better than that record suggests. The right-hander will bring a 3.24 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into his next start on the road against the division-rival Dodgers. Cashner has a strong 51/13 K/BB ratio in 50 innings this season.
May 16 - 11:38 PM

Andrew Cashner suffered his fifth loss of the season after yielding six runs (four earned) in six innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

Six of the seven hits Cashner allowed were singles, but he walked three and was hurt by a pair of errors in the third inning as well. He struck out three in the outing. Interestingly, the right-hander has allowed 23 runs on the season, but only 13 of them are earned runs. He has a 3.16 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 39/11 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Cashner will close out a road series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next.
May 6 - 12:45 AM

Andrew Cashner struck out 10 over seven innings but allowed three runs -- two earned -- in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

For the second straight day a Padres pitcher enjoyed a strong strikeout total against a free-swinging Astros club but ended up with the loss. For Cashner, he allowed six hits and walked one but was simply outpitched by Dallas Keuchel. It was still a largely positive start for the right-hander, who fell to 1-4 but owns a 2.61 ERA and 36/8 K/BB ratio through five starts. Cashner will look to get in the win column Tuesday at the Giants.
Apr 29 - 6:18 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched seven innings of two-run ball Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

At least this loss was less about defense than the previous two; he just didn't get the help offensively. Cashner has a 2.63 ERA through four starts, even though he's allowed 14 runs in 24 innings (half were unearned). He'll face the Astros next.
Apr 25 - 1:37 AM

Andrew Cashner moved to 1-2 in Sunday's win over the Cubs, pitching six innings without allowing an earned run.

The Cubs did manage two runs off Cashner in the first inning, but both were unearned. After the early trouble, Cashner settled down and kept the Cubs off the board the rest of the way. He struck out five and walked two while scattering five hits across his six innings. Cashner has a 2.65 ERA through three starts. His next outing will come against the rival Dodgers.
Apr 19 - 5:31 PM

Andrew Cashner fell to 0-2 on Monday, yielding four runs (all unearned) in six innings versus the Diamondbacks.

All four runs scored in the second inning. Cashner allowed back-to-back singles to start the inning. The right-hander might have seen his way out of the inning if second baseman Yangervis Solarte hadn't made a one-out throwing error to allow the first run to score. With two outs, Ender Inciarte doubled in two runs and Chris Owings singled in the fourth run. Overall, Cashner yielded seven hits, walked one, and struck out nine. He will go in search of his first win again at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.
Apr 14 - 1:45 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over five innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Cashner struck out six and walked three, including one walk with the bases loaded in the second. Said walk was of his opposite number, Brandon McCarthy. Cashner's major nemesis in this one was Adrian Gonzalez, though. Gonzalez smashed three home runs off the pitcher (in the first, third and fifth innings), all solo shots. When healthy the last two seasons, Cashner's posted ERAs of 2.55 and 3.09. He won just five games in 2014, a number which should rise given that he's playing with a much improved offense this year.
Apr 9 - 1:57 AM

Andrew Cashner was in mid-season form in Sunday's Cactus League victory over the Mariners, racking up six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.

Cashner allowed just one run on four hits and a walk in the contest, that lone run coming on a solo blast off the bat of Jabari Henry. While he's no longer considered the ace of the Padres staff, he has certainly pitched like one this spring, compiling a 2.45 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 frames.
