Padres lose to Orioles; fail to take advantage of Dodger and Giant losses

Jeez that was frustrating. The Padres entered the game knowing that the Dodgers and Giants lost earlier in the day. But they they couldn't capitalize and pull off a win against a team with a .279 winning percentage.

In the first inning the Padres escaped sloppy base running with the Orioles playing even sloppier defense. Jerry Hairston Jr. cleaned up the mess by singling to center scoring two runs.

Clayton Richard gave up the go ahead runs in the 7th to Adam Jones on a 2 run homer to left.

Padres seemed lifeless until the bottom of the ninth when Jerry Hairston drew a walk and Anthony Gwynn doubled putting men on 2nd and 3rd with no outs. I forget who it was, but someone hit a high chopper that scored Hairston, before Eckstein grounded out and Headley struck out to end the game.

Padres drop below .500 in June and find themselves face to face with a Must Win Game tomorrow.
