We needed them,'' Goldschmidt said. ''The whole last whatever, 45 days, we were playing every day, guys were playing as hard as they could but can't operate at 100% for that long.

Carpenter added an RBI single for a 6-2 lead.Paddack allowed eight hits, struck out one and walked none.''I noticed early that they were jumping on my fastball,'' Paddack said. ''I thought we did an awesome job of executing our pitches. I guess that's postseason baseball. I take all the blame for Game 1.''The game speeds up in a postseason start,'' he added. ''Every pitch I was mentally fatigued because I knew every pitch was important.'' The Cardinals ''came out swinging first pitch and they barreled some balls up,'' Padres rookie manager Jayce Tingler said.
