On This Date 18 Years Ago...

...on May 30, 1994, the Padres beat the Pirates 10-2. Andy Ashby pitched a complete game for his first win of the season after five losses and the Padres' seventeenth against thirty four losses. Ashby struck out eight and walked one; he gave up four hits, the only runs coming from a two run homer by future Padre and polygamist Al Martin in the second inning.
The Padres' offense was led, as it was so many other times, by one Anthony Keith Gwynn. Tony drove in the first five Friar runs on two hits; a two run shot in the first and base clearing double in the seventh. Craig Shipley pitched in a grand slam later in the seventh and Ricky Gutierrez capped off the scoring with a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth.
