What started as a close back and forth game between the Padres and the Diamondbacks quickly turned ugly in the fifth inning, as the Padres brought in a slew of runs with two outs to batter around Randall Delgado in his last start of the season, as he proved that no park may be large enough to quell his home run problems. The bullpen was called on to help stop the bleeding, but they were less than effective, with every pitcher called in giving up at least one run, except for Heath Bell. The worst outing would be Eury De La Rosa's one out and four earned runs- though the last came in on a double allowed by Bell.
The Diamondbacks offense did tried to get to Ian Kennedy early on, breaking through with leadoff doubles in the third and fourth innings that both came around to score. But when the damn broke for Delgado and the bullpen, the Diamondbacks offense quickly fell near silent, never threatening to score and eventually going down 1-2-3 in the ninth to end the game.
