Erlin’s 11 strikeouts tied the Padres record for most Ks in a game, set by Sean O’Sullivan earlier this season.

Mike Wilson broke the scoreless tie in the fifth with a solo home run over the left field wall. The final run came across in the seventh when Jesus Merchan hit a two-out single to left allowing Cody Decker to score from second base.

Colt Hynes recorded his second save of the season, closing out the final 1.1 innings of the game. Former Tucson Padre Andrew Werner was charged with the loss for Sacramento after yielding two runs on nine hits.
