Diamondbacks 1, Padres 5

The Diamondbacks were looking for a sweep against San Diego, but found their bats shut down by Robbie Erlin. With Paul Goldschmidt on the bench, Arizona didn't get a runner in scoring position until the fourth inning and didn't see their first extra base hit until they were already down to their final out in the bottom of the ninth. The sole run on the night came in the sixth inning, where, after a two out walk, Eric Chavez advanced to third on a single from Aaron Hill and was brought in to score by Willie Bloomquist.

Wade Miley took the loss for Arizona, struggling in the first inning and and giving up a run to a Will Venable double before he notched an out. Venable scored on a two out single, but Miley did settle in after that. That was all of the scoring San Diego would see until the eighth, where Heath Bell gave up two home runs to his old team, and gave the Padres the 5-1 lead that would be the final score.
