Roundup: Padres’ Andrew Cashner shuts down Pirates

Andrew Cashner carried a perfect game into the seventh inning and faced the minimum 27 batters in a one-hitter that sent the San Diego Padres past the Pirates, 2-0, on Monday night in Pittsburgh.

Cashner (10-8) retired his first 18 batters before Jose Tabata grounded a clean single into right field leading off the seventh. Tabata was erased when Andrew McCutchen grounded into an inning-ending double play, and the righthander cruised to his first complete game in 31 career starts.
