SAN DIEGO -- When Andrew Cashner contributed to his own cause Friday night with a single, stolen base and run scored to go along with his first Major League victory as a starting pitcher, he accomplished a rare feat. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Cashner is the first pitcher to collect all three in his first big league win as a starter since 1969 when Bart Johnson did it in his Major League debut for the Chicago White Sox.

Cashner did surprise manager Bud Black when he swiped second base in the third inning Friday, although Black also noted that Cashner has above-average speed, especially for a pitcher.

"He's an aggressive baserunner," Black said. "He's got some speed. I looked up and saw him running and said, 'Oh no.' Then I saw him slide and said, 'Oh no' a little bit louder. But, he came out of it OK."

Cashner also joins a rare group of Padres pitchers who have collected a run, hit and stolen base in a game, becoming the fifth to do so. Greg Maddux (2007), Adam Eaton (twice, 2000 and 2004) and Doug Brocail (1993) have also accomplished the feat for the franchise.
