Eaton Out-duels Dempster
Neither pitching staff allowed an earned run, but the Padres picked up a run in the sixth when Giles scored on a Ramon Hernandez groundball to the second baseman. Eaton was phenomenal. He allowed only four hits over six innings and walked none while striking out three. His Cub counterpart, Dempster, was also on his A-game allowing only a single, unearned run on a ground out. Not to take anything away from today's pitchers, but the wind was blowing in this morning and balls that might have been home runs turned into outs.
