MILWAUKEE — MacKenzie Gore, the third overall pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, was one of the most-sought-after prospects in recent years. The Padres waited five years for the left-hander to join the Major League roster. And now that he has, he’s everything that the club hoped for.
With Gore’s six scoreless innings — allowing just three hits, three walks and tying his career high with 10 strikeouts — the Padres cruised to 4-0 victory against the Brewers on Saturday afternoon at American Family Field.
That dominant performance reduced Gore’s ERA to 1.50 — eight total runs allowed — across 48 innings with 57 strikeouts on the season in eight starts and one relief appearance.
Gore’s six shutout innings on Saturday extended his scoreless streak to 15 innings, dating back to his start on May 22 against the Giants.
