A six-run 2nd inning was more than the Diamondbacks needed as they snapped their four game losing streak by defeating the Padres 8-1 in San Diego. Patrick Corbin pitched seven innings of one run ball to get the win.
The D'Backs took extended batting practice off Padres starter Clayton Richard in the aforementioned 2nd. Singles by Josh Wilson and Cliff Pennington, an error on Richard on a Crobin sacrifice bunt, an A.J. Pollock double, and a Paul Goldschmidt sacrifice fly brought tacos in the 2nd.
A Pollock solo shot and other Goldschmidt sac-fly brought the score to 8-0. The lone run for San Diego came with a Chris Denorfia solo homer in the 7th. Tony Sipp caused the Padres to threaten in the 8th, but Heath Bell came in with the bases loaded to induce a double play to end the threat. He then pitched a 1-2-3 9th to get the win.
Full recap upcoming.
