An unusually short outing for Tyson Ross created a deficit that the Padres simply couldn't recover from. The All-Star pitcher who is used to posting a sub-3 ERA instead threw for 3 innings, giving up five hits with five earned runs to go along with it. He also walked half as many as he struck out (2/4).
The last time Tyson Ross was that beat up was almost exactly a month ago against the Phillies where he didn't even last half an inning.
Tonight the offense couldn't do much but desperately fight back as the runs continued to pile on after Ross' departure. Two errors from the Padres defense and at least three three-run innings for the Dbacks were in the losing Friars formula for tonight.
Home runs from Yasmani Grandal and Yangervis Solarte with some Alexi Amarista RBI's sprinkled in became the futile attempt at combating the wall of runs posted by the Snakes.
Tomorrow Odrisamer Despaigne will try to avenge our all-star with a series win.
