September 3, 1969, San Diego: Phillies 9, Padres 1 (box score)
Ugly, ugly loss. Did I say ugly?
The Padres scored only once. In the seventh inning, with left-hander Woodie Fryman on the mound for the visitors, San Diego parlayed an Ivan Murrell single and two Phillies errors into a run. That made the score 9-1.
The rest? You don’t want to know, but I’ll tell you anyway.
Al Santorini made the start for San Diego. Allowed single runs in the first, second, and fifth innings, and four more in the sixth.
You want details. Okay, then; Deron Johnson, Ron Stone, and Don Money each collected three hits. Johnny Callison drove in three runs, Stone drove in two more. Even Fryman singled and scored a run in the sixth. Heck, Fryman stole a base that inning — third base, no less. Care to guess how many stolen bases Fryman ended up with in his 18-year career? Yep, just the one.
Highlights for the Padres included, um, well… Nate Colbert tripled to right-center with two out in the fourth. Ed Spiezio scored the team’s only run. Jack Baldschun worked a scoreless ninth inning.
I dunno, we’re reaching here. I told you it was ugly…
Sounds ugly Geoff
It was ugly. Sorry, I forgot to mention that…
