Diamondbacks 1, Padres 4

Yeah, that's pretty much how we felt tonight, Paul - Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

Brandon McCarthy performed well enough - except for one pitch. Unfortunately, that pitch didn't come back, and also came with Padres on base.

San Diego got on the board first, scoring with two outs in the opening inning, on an RBI single, but Arizona came back immediately. An Adam Eaton groundout leveled the score, though the Diamondbacks would probably have wanted to do more, having loaded the bases with no outs. That was the only scoring by either side through the middle of the sixth: the Padres got a couple of base-runners, but with two outs, Brandon McCarthy had a chance to escape. Instead, he made the decisive mistake. Nick Hundley bounced it off the face of the building in left-field, just fair, for a three-run homer that provided the final margin of victory.

McCarthy finished the night with a line of six innings pitched, and eight hits allowed, resulting in four runs, all earned. He walked none and struck out two. Heath Bell and Matt Langwell pitched scoreless innings of relief, but the offense which had carried the team through Colorado, was a lot less effective. Cliff Pennington had three hits, while Eaton reached base safely twice, on a hit and a walk. The same two teams play again tomorrow night at Petco, with Wade Miley starting for the Diamondbacks, going up against the Padres' Tyson Ross. First pitch is again at 7:10pm, Arizona time.
