Diamondbacks 10, Padres 0

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

Well, that was fun. Arizona got their second complete-game shutout of the season, from Randall Delgado, and the offense put up a crooked number in the first, second AND third inning, cruising to a blowout.

It took Randall Delgado just 100 pitches to complete his first career shutout, on 70's Night at Chase Field. He allowed only three hits and a walk, with three strikeouts, and gave the Padres almost no chances at all. They managed only three at-bats with a runner in scoring position. though a help was a great play by Gerardo Parra in the outfield. Delgado helped his own cause out with a pair of hits, becoming the first D-back with a shutout and a multi-hit game in close to a decade, since the Big Unit did the feat in September 2003. Delgado evened his record at 3-3, and reduced his season ERA to 2.85.

Meanwhile, the offense gave him far more than enough support, plundering 17 hits in total. Martin Prado led the way, going 3-for-4 with a walk, and Cliff Pennington also had a three-hit night. Including Delgado, five Arizona batters enjoyed two-hit games, including Aaron Hill. He doubled the first two times he was up, but appeared to experience a twinge on the second, and was pulled for precautionary reasons with a tight hamstring. Cody Ross had his sixth home-run of the year in the seventh, and about the only D-back who struggled was Paul Goldschmidt who had an 0-for-5 night with three strikeouts.

The Dodgers won, so we remain one-half a game back. We play San Diego again tomorrow, with Tyler Skaggs facing Andrew Cashner. Full recap to follow in a bit.
