Eaton outing cut short
Eaton threw an amazing 73 pitches and recorded just five outs. He threw ten pitches to Florida starter Josh Beckett and eventually walked him.
Eaton's last start against the Marlins was also among his worst. He gave up four runs on seven hits over just 3.1 innings as the Padres were defeated 11-7 at Florida on August 17, 2003.
Two pitches prior to the home run, Cabrera fouled a two strike pitch into the mitt of catcher Ramon Hernandez. The plate umpire, Charlie Reliford, ruled Hernandez trapped the ball and the at bat continued. Cabrera then lined a fastball over the left field fence to put the Marlins up 6-1.
Khalil Greene drove in the first Padre run with a sacrifice fly in the second.
Jason Szuminski gave up a bases loaded walk in the fifth inning that pushed the Marlins seventh run across the plate.
Ramon Hernandez hit a two run jack in the ninth to close the score to 7-4. Terrence Long had got on base with his third hit of the night prior to the homer. Hernandez also added a double that drove in Long in the seventh.
The Padres joined MLB in saluting Mother's Day and utilized the special day to put the spotlight on breast cancer awareness. Special pink chairs were placed in both bullpens to symbolize those who have survived the disease, those who lost the battle and the continuing effort to find a cure. The chairs were autographed by players and will later be auctioned off on MLB.com with proceeds from the auction, as well as a financial contribution from MLB, being donated to the Big Bam! Foundation, which was created to educate young women about breast cancer.
The Padres don't play the Marlins again until August 20.
The club is 6-4 in season series thus far, including a 2-3 mark on the road.
