The Padres lost the series opener to Arizona Monday afternoon by a final score of 14-7.
Starting pitcher Cal Quantrill, coming off a rare off outing against the Dodgers, was once again roughed up to the tune of eight runs on eight hits over five innings. His ERA now sits at a modest 4.57 after being in the low 3.00s just a few weeks ago.
Offensively, Ty France took Mike Leake deep in the sixth for his third bomb in the last two games, while Manuel Margot, Nick Martini and Eric Hosmer all notched two-hit efforts.
The Diamondbacks jumped out to an early 8-0 lead, including Ketel Marte’s 29th shot of the year. Josh Rojas picked up four hits, while noted Padres killer Eduardo Escobar added two of his own, including home run number 33.
Javy Guerra was knocked around in his major-league debut, surrendering four runs in just two thirds of an inning, including three bombs. The signature velocity was there, but he leaked a few pitches over the plate and they got turned around.
Luis Urías made two throwing errors filling in at shortstop to bring his abbreviated-season total to eight.
The Friars and Snakes will be back at it Tuesday night at 6:40PM.
