Diamondbacks 1, Padres 2

Kent Horner

Michael Bolsinger pitched through some struggles but the offense was shut down by Padres rookie Ordisamer Despaigne and their bullpen to deny the sweep in San Diego.

The D-backs must not have been too comfortable with 4th place in the NL West as their bid to sweep the Padres was shut down by a solid start from Ordisamer Despaigne. An early 1st inning run was all the D-backs could muster today, as Despaigne and the Padres' bullpen shut down the D-backs for the rest of the day to secure the victory.

Michael Bolsinger pitched a decent game, as he went 6 innings with 6 strikeouts while only allowing the 2 runs. Matt Stites, Joe Thatcher and Evan Marshall stymied the Padres the last 2 innings but the offense couldn't respond to the Padres 4th inning.

Goldy tied the franchise record in walks during a series with 7, David Peralta reached based all 3 times, and Nick Ahmed in his MLB debut collected his 1st hit and now must be traded while his value is never higher. Altogether a rather disappointing day from our offense. They had multiple opportunities to build momentum but were shut down each time with 3 double plays. With the loss, the D-backs dropped to last place. Following the off-day tomorrow, the D-backs head to Pittsburgh to face the Pirates.
