Diamondbacks 3, Padres 4

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Wade Miley fanned a career-high 11 over seven innings, but it wasn't enough as some wasted chances and poor defense came back to bite the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks got on the board first, Martin Prado finally opening his home-run account for the season, with a no-doubter into the left-field bleachers in the bottom of the second. However, the Padres came right back, scoring three times in the top of the third, on five hits and an error by Miguel Montero. The Diamondbacks chipped away, pulling within one run in the sixth, Montero's RBI double driving in Paul Goldschmidt, and then tying things up when Gerardo Parra singled home Cliff Pennington in the seventh. Arizona left the bases loaded there, Goldie getting on base with his third catcher's interference of the season, whacking the Padres catcher out of the game too.

That was the end for Wade Miley, who allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk, with 11 K's, the most by a D-backs left-hander since Randy Johnson in 2008. Unfortunately, Evan Marshall, who had been so good to date, allowed his first earned run in the majors on a solo homer in the eighth. Arizona went down in order in their half of the eighth, and did the same in the ninth, as San Diego leveled the series. Turamber will be along with the beer-cap, pretty shortly if previous games are any indication. It's back at Chase Field tomorrow night for the rubber game in this series, with Tim Stauffer taking on Chase Anderson.
