In this case, it was a three-run homer in the first inning, which ended up being all the offense that the San Diego Padres would need. Patrick Corbin then allowed another home-run in the second innings, though that one was a solo shot. He ended up going through five innings, allowing four runs on four hits and three walks, with three strikeouts. The bullpen worked three scoreless innings - indeed, three hitless innings - with J.J. Hoover, Jimmie Sherfy and David Hernandez each striking out a batter.

The offense were not able to take advantage of a stream of leadoff base-runners, with the Padres’ starter allowing six walks in 5.1 innings. They did score two runs in the third, on RBI singles by David Peralta and J.D. Martinez. But the D-backs then wasted their best chance, unable to score with the bases loaded and one out in the sixth inning. Arizona also got the tying run to the plate with one out in the ninth, and that ended up going no better either.
