He stranded three runners after a pair of singles and a walk in the first, and two more runners in the second. Then he settled down, allowing one more baserunner the rest of the game, retiring 12 of his last 13 batters faced and striking out four.“I’ve worked my whole life for this moment,” Nix said. “I’m on cloud nine right now.”After settling in, Padres fans and Nix’ contingent of 60-plus guests grew noticeably louder each time he recorded an out.“I could hear my grandma, she’s always been the one I can hear,” said Nix.Freddy Galvis hit a two-out RBI single in the second to put the Padres up 1-0.
