Kuo was cruising through the first 3 innings before the Padres knocked him out of the game in the 4th inning. 5 hits (including a 3 run HR) and a walk would plate 4 runs for the Padres. Rudy Seanez, who relieved Kuo would allow 2 more inherited base runners to score - thus giving Kuo an ugly line on the night: 3.1 IP 7 runs 6 hits 3 BB 3 K's. Kuo was clocked between 88-91 mph on his fastball. Kuo is in line to pick up his 4th loss of the season while his ERA has inflated to 7.71 after tonight's performance. Box
