Saturday’s game was doomed from the beginning. It was 6-0 Diamondbacks before the 3rd inning. Tyson Ross was not himself. He allowed 6 runs, 4 of them earned, in 3 innings. Mark Trumbo did a lot of the damage for Arizona, collecting 3 hits, including a double and 3 RBI. Ender Inciarte set up 2 runs by stealing 2 bases as well.
Grandal hit his team-leading 13th home run to get the Padres on the board but it barely dented the Arizona lead. Jordan Pacheco’s at-bat in the 7th is what put the game away for the D-backs. Trumbo first scored on a wild pitch by Leonel Campos, setting up runners at 2nd and 3rd for Pacheco who then lined a ball to center to score the remaining baserunners, making it 10-4.
