PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Zack Wheeler struck out nine over seven shutout innings, Rhys Hoskins homered and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Wheeler (2-3), who lost his first three starts of the season, had yet another outing more in line with the ones that helped him finish second in NL Cy Young Award voting last season. He allowed four hits and walked none over 94 pitches.
Jose Alvarado worked the eighth and Corey Knebel earned his eighth save.
The Phillies won without NL MVP Bryce Harper in the lineup.
