SAN DIEGO — Andrew Cashner threw his second career one-hitter and struck out a career-high 11, and Chase Headley hit a two-run homer to lead the San Diego Padres to a 6-0 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Cashner took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Rajai Davis hit a one-out flare single into center field, just past the glove of outstretched second baseman Jedd Gyorko. Davis stole second and third, and Ian Kinsler walked before Miguel Cabrera hit into a double play.
Cashner ended his remarkable outing by striking out Cabrera on a 95-mph fastball.
Cashner (1-1) retired 14 in a row before allowing the single. He walked two.
