The Padres (14-24) scored fewer runs than the Chicago White Sox (16-17) last night at Guaranteed Rate Field, losing 5-4 in a walk off.

Trevor Cahill (3-2. 3.27) gave up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in six innings. Avisail Garcia hit a solo home run in the second inning. In the fourth inning, Jose Abreu reached on a throwing error by Ryan Schimpf, took second base on a wild pitch, took third base on another wild pitch, and then Cahill walked Garcia on yet another wild pitch, allowing Abreu to score. Kevan Smith scored on Leury Garcia‘s ground out and Melky Cabrera‘s RBI single drove in Tyler Saladino in the fifth inning. In the ninth inning, Saladino scored on Yolmer Sanchez‘ single to win the game.

Dylan Covey (0-3, 7.98) pitched four and a third innings, surrendering three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine. For the second game in a row, the Padres had a home run to leadoff the game on the first pitch, this time by Manuel Margot. Allen Cordoba hit a solo home run in the third inning. In the fifth inning, Hunter Renfroe scored on Wil Myers‘ sacrifice fly.  And Myers hit a solo home run in the eighth inning.
