Chase Anderson was shaky from the start, with the first two Padres reaching, and both came around to score and put the Diamondbacks in a 2-0 hole. He pitched alright in innings two through four, but Anderson's fifth inning went: walk-walk-double-play-walk-home-run. It was Yasmani Grandal with the three-run home run, and Chase was done after five innings.
The Diamondbacks managed some two-out magic in the 5th, with Aaron Hill and David Peralta walking, followed by a walk by Mark Trumbo. Miguel Montero smoked a single off of his former battery-mate Ian Kennedy and brought in two runs. In the 6th, Ender Inciarte doubled in Jake Lamb to bring the Diamondbacks back to within two.
But Matt Stites served up a two-run home run to Will Venable in the 8th. Cliff Pennington hit a pinch-hit solo home run in the bottom half of the 8th, but it was not enough to come back and get the sweep of San Diego.
