The San Diego Padres dropped Game 1 of their series with the Los Angeles Angeles. The Angels led most of the game but the Padres rallied back in the seventh to tie it up 3-3. But a comeback victory was not meant to be, thanks in part to an Albert Pujols broken-bat single in the bottom of the ninth off Craig Kimbrel; though the run and loss was charged to Kevin Quackenbush.

Tyson Ross threw six innings, giving up ten hits but keeping the Angels down to only three runs (2 ER). Brandon Maurer and Joaquin Benoit also performed well, throwing a hit less inning each.

It is a nice sign the at Padres weren’t shut out of held to one hit. So you can take solace in that Padres fans, if you can. We’ll see how the Padres respond tomorrow with Odrisamer Despaigne getting the start.
