Padres 2, Diamondbacks 1: No Sweep For The Snakes

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Odrisamer Despaigne (henceforth referred to as "Odie") was just terrible today. His ERA rose 0.66 points! Of course, it started at zero, and those points came on single run he allowed in 6.2 innings, but the narrative is that everything is awful and the sun will never shine again. I'm just working with what I've been given! Kidding aside, Odie managed the Diamondbacks pretty well, allowing 5 hits (all of them singles) and 4 walks. That's not the best WHIP ever, but a couple of double plays and a dearth of extra bases kept the snakes in check.

The only run Odie allowed came in the very first inning. Ender Inciarte led off the game with a single, then stole his way into scoring position. Miguel Montero hit a single to bring him home. That was it for the Diamondbacks, as Odie and the bullpen combined shut them out for the next 8 innings.

The Padres got back in the game in the fourth inning when Chase Headley drew a walk off of Mike Bolsinger. A one-out single by Tommy Medica put they tying run in scoring position and the winning run on first. Cameron Maybin brought Headley in with a double to right to tie it up. Alexi Amarista immediately followed up with a sacrifice fly to score Medica from third. It wasn't much, but enough to avoid the sweep.

Jesse Hahn takes the mound against former Friar Mat Latos tomorrow at 7:10 PM.
