On April 14, 2016 — There are two great pitching efforts today. Vince Velasquez strikes out 16 batters and pitches a three-hitter and leading the Phillies over the Padres, 3 – 0. The Padres have already been shut out an unprecedented 5 times in 10 games this season. Jaime Garcia of the Cardinals does not fan quite as many, but he pitches a one-hit shutout to defeat the Brewers, 7 – 0. Still, he strikes out a career-high 13 opponents as Domingo Santana has Milwaukee’s lone hit, a single in the 6th.
