Danny Salazar strikes out 7 as Cleveland Indians lose 6-3 to San Diego Padres | cleveland.com

Once again, the starting pitching was superb, the bullpen less so. Danny Salazar toss four scoreless innings (striking out seven), but the bullpen gave up runs late. Giovanni Soto, one of five left-handed relievers in camp, had another bad outing, allowing three runs (one of them earned, with Soto's error accounting for the two unearned runs) in the sixth inning, and Shawn Morimando, who will be starting in AAA, allowed another three runs in the eighth.
