Diamondbacks 3, Padres 1: Montero Sinks Stults

"I look sad because I can see the future." - Kent Horner

Although the Padres got on the scoreboard first tonight, their lead didn't hold. The Diamondbacks tied the game in the third before Miguel Montero put them ahead with a two-run homer in the sixth.

Chris Denorfia started the game well with a leadoff double. A ground out by Seth Smith and a sacrifice fly brought him home to give San Diego an early lead. One run wouldn't be enough to win the game, though. Ender Inciarte fired back with a leadoff single in the third. With one out, Inciarte stole second. That wouldn't have been a problem had Rene Rivera's throwing error not given him a free pass to third. Martin Prado's sacrifice fly brought him home to tie it up.

Eric Stults entered the sixth inning without having given up an earned run, but that was about to change. Paul Goldschmidt walked, and then Miguel Montero hit a two run shot to the right field porch. Stults stayed in the game for one more batter, but Buddy pulled him when he beaned Cody Ross. The bullpen held the Diamondbacks at 3, but once again, the offense just couldn't get it together.

Odrisamer Despaigne will try to replicate the success of his first start tomorrow afternoon. First pitch at 1:10 PM.
