Tyson Ross's final start of 2015 did not go the way anybody had hoped. After a rough first inning, he threw four scoreless innings and his offense got him ahead with some timely hitting. But one bad pitch left the park and gave the Brewers a lead the Padres couldn't surmount.
Scooter Gennett led off the first with a single to right and moved into scoring position on a ground out. Adam Lind knocked a single up the middle to score Gennett, and then moved to second when Austin Hedges let a pitch get past him. A double from Jean Segura put Milwaukee up 2-0.
Yangervis Solarte got things started for the Friars with a two-out single to center. A seriously wild pitch put him on second, and Matt Kemp collected his 100th RBI with a single to left. He probably would have tied the game when Justin Upton followed that with a double down the left field line, but it bounced into the stands and Kemp had to hold up at third. Jedd Gyorko struck out to end the inning.
The scoring continued in the fourth, with Spangenberg hitting a leadoff triple to right. Hedges drew a walk, and then Ross helped his own cause with an RBI single. Another single from Wil Myers put the Padres on top, but it didn't last. Khris Davis led off the sixth with a single, and Segura picked up his second and third RBI of the night my hammering a first-pitch fastball into the left field seats. It was jut a one run lead, but the Padres couldn't put it together.
Andrew Cashner will try to even up the series at 7:10 tomorrow night.
