Diamondbacks 10, Padres 9: Snakes Win Slugfest In Extras

Norm Hall

Ian Kennedy struggled against his former team tonight.

It was clear early on that this was going to be an ugly game for both teams. Thanks to a flurry of singles, the Padres scored three runs off of David Holmberg, who left the game after 3.2 innings. Ian Kennedy didn't fare much better, giving up a three run blast to Gerardo Parra in the bottom of the second. Kennedy didn't last much longer than Holmberg, leaving after giving up three more runs in the fifth. After Colt Hynes and Brad Boxberger allowed another run in the sixth, things were looking pretty dire. That's when our boys staged their first comeback of the night.

Yonder Alonso and Jesus Guzman led off the eighth with back to back walks before scoring on Ronny Cedeño's double to left field. Mark Kotsay singled to drive him in, and then a pair of singles from the red hot Will Venable and Jedd Gyorko knotted the game at 7. It was short lived, as the Diamondbacks scored two runs on a double from Martin Prado. So in the top of the ninth, it was time for another comeback. A single from Alonso, a walk to Guzman, and a single from Nick Hundley pulled the Padres within one. Cedeño came up big again with a game-tying bunt single. Unfortunately, that was it for the friars tonight, as Dale Thayer gave up a trio of singles in the bottom of the tenth.

Robbie Erlin will toe the rubber against Wade Miley at 6:40 PM tomorrow. Let's avoid the sweep!
