Padres 1, Diamondbacks 6

Christian Petersen

Just what was needed after a grueling 10-game road trip: Brandon McCarthy went 7 innings, and the offense provided ample support.

Brandon McCarthy pitched a solid seven innings tonight, though it didn't look good in the 1st inning. The first two Padres reached base, and an unearned run crossed the plate with only one out in the game. But after that, McCarthy settled down very nicely, only allowing three hits and a hit-by-pitch the rest of the way. He struck out five on the night and was very efficient and effective with his pitches.

The Diamondbacks took the lead from San Diego in the 4th inning, and they never looked back. Adam Eaton was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, and Paul Goldschmidt just missed a home run and instead got a triple on a ball to the right field corner, scoring Eaton to tie the game up. A sacrifice fly by Martin Prado brought in Goldschmidt and the 2-1 lead.

Arizona added on in the 6th inning when Tony Campana and Eaton each reached, advanced on a double steal, and scored on a single by Prado. The bases were loaded a few times in the 7th inning and Arizona pushed two more runs across, making it 6-1.

Eury de la Rosa struck out four batters in two innings of relief work, nailing down the win.
