Not much worse than losing to the Dodgers, but at least the Giants also won so the LA's lead on the division stays frozen in place. Yesterday a pair of swings determined the win, and today a lack of productive Padres swings determined the loss.
Luis Perdomo got totally lit up. He threw for an an entire 6 innings, but in that time he allowed 5 runs to cross the plate, gave up 9 hits (2 of them home runs) and struck out 5. Josh Reddick homered off Perdomo in the sixth, and Yasmani Grandal's hairline homered in the 4th alongside an RBI single.
The Padres' run came from a lone Wil Myers RBI in the late hours of the 8th inning. The Friars were held to 4 hits, coming from the leadoff crew of Luis Sardinas, Alexei Ramirez, Myers, and Yangervis Solarte. Derek Norris and Ryan Schimpf had multi-strikeout nights.
San Diego will finish the series tomorrow at 1:10 PM, and still have a chance to slightly monkey-wrench a playoff run.
