Ohlendorf Receives Giant Pounding; Giants Cruise To Victory


Ross Ohlendorf was shelled in his last outing in Pittsburgh, as he gave up six runs in three innings. After a brutal outing like that, it could not possibly get any worse for Ohlendorf, right. Wrong.

Ohlendorf gave eight earned runs in 2.1 innings of work, and the Padres were destroyed by San Francisco, 10-1. The loss was the Padres fourth in a row.

The Giants blew the game open in the third inning, scoring eight runs. Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford led off the inning with a double. After retiring the next batter, Ohlendorf allowed the next seven Giants to reach base.

The Padres offense could not do much against Giants starter Matt Cain, as he baffled the Padres for eight innings, allowing just one run. The only run the Padres scored came courtesy of an Everth Cabrera RBI single in the fifth. The Padres only had four innings, including doubles by Chase Headley and Yonder Alonso. Alonso leads all National League rookies with 32 doubles.

The Padres will send Eric Stults to the mound tomorrow evening for the second game of the series with the Giants.

NOTES: The Padres activated catcher Yasmani Grandal from the 15-day disabled list. The Padres placed catcher Nick Hundley on the disabled list with a right knee contusion. Grandal went hitless in his return to the lineup.
