Tyson Ross was sharp with seven strikeouts in his five innings pitched, but he did not take the mound again after the rain delay. Ross gave up just five hits and two runs. The rest of the bullpen threw four shutout innings. The Padres pitching was a bit shaky earlier this season, but are really starting to look as dominant as we originally expected.

While the Padres offense stayed hot, it was their defense that really shined tonight; which included this tumbling Matt Kemp catch.

Andrew Cashner gets the start tomorrow for the Padres.
