Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub that you’re only in because Fox Sports One isn’t carried on your cable package. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (68-79) were smacked around by the Arizona Diamondbacks (60-88) by a score of 10-4 last night in Chase Field. Tyson Ross (13-14, 2.81) took the brunt of it, giving up six runs (four earned) in just three innings on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts. All six runs off of Ross were scored in the first two innings. Mark Trumbo had three RBI and two runs scored on three hits over the course of the game.
Chase Anderson (9-6, 3.70) pitched five innings for the Diamondbacks to earn the win, surrendering two runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Yasmani Grandal hit a solo home run off of Anderson in the fourth inning. Yangervis Solarte connected with a pitch from Oliver Perez for another solo home run in the seventh. Alexi Amarista had the other two RBI with two run-scoring singles.

That Yangervis Solarte HR matched the 4 Headley has hit since the trade. Solarte still leads in every other offensive category.
