Adrian Gonzalez's thrilling two out, two strike, 9th inning game tying home run was wasted when the Diamondbacks' Chris Young hit a walk off homer in the bottom of the 9th.
Tough loss, but the Padres mounted a valiant comeback after being down 0-5 through 5 innings. Clayton Richard had a dreadful 4th inning. He gave up 4 runs including one on a wild pitch during an intentional walk.
In the 6th Ludwick scored Tejada on a ground rule double. Then Chase Headley singled in Gonzalez, followed by a sac fly by Nick Hundley to make the score 3-5.
Like the Goonies the Padres never say die. In the 9th inning Jerry Hairston Jr. hit a solo shot followed by Adrian Gonzalez's game tying homer. The excitement was short lived.
Unfortunately Luke Gregerson couldn't hold the lead and gave up the walk off.
I hate to lose a game like this, but it's kinda better than losing a blow out like it appeared they would half way through the game.
Padres series record falls to 19-13-4
