Clevinger and 2 relievers give Padres win over Phillies

PHILADELPHIA — Mike Clevinger threw one-hit ball through five brilliant innings and combined with two relievers to lead the San Diego Padres to a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.

Clevinger (1-0) won for the first time in three starts this season. He missed the previous season to recover from Tommy John surgery.

The right-hander pitched five innings for the first time this year, with five strikeouts and no walks in his 75 pitches.

MacKenzie Gore struck out four in three shutout innings and Taylor Rogers pitched the ninth for his 14th save. The Padres went 10 games over .500 (23-13).

Zach Eflin (1-3) had a good matchup with Clevinger, striking out five in six innings. He gave up a run in the fifth on a force out.

Robinson Cano, who had singled off Eflin in the fifth inning for his first hit with the Padres, lined left to left in the seventh. Kyle Schwarber let the ball slip away from him, on an error.

Wil Myers, who opened the inning with a walk off James Norwood, scored to make it 2-0. Trent Grisham added a double that knocked in Cano.

For the Padres, the Dominicans Manny Machado 4-1, Canó 4-2 with a run scored.

For the Phillies, Dominican Jean Segura 4-1. The Venezuelan Jose Herrera 3-0. Panamanian Johan Camargo 1-1.
