It was a tough game for the Tucson Padres last night as they fell to the Salt Lake City Bees, 10-2.
But they've got a chance for revenge tonight—and it's Bark in the Park night at Kino Stadium, so you can bring your dog to the ballpark! Details here.
Tim Hagerty of the Padres has the details from last night's game:
One night after winning by ten runs, the Tucson Padres lost to Salt Lake 10-2 Saturday at Kino Stadium. Salt Lake scored nine runs on 14 hits against Wade LeBlanc, who suffered his first loss with Tucson. LeBlanc pitched 4.1 innings, striking out three and walking one. Kevin Richardson’s grand slam highlighted a five-run fifth inning for Salt Lake. Salt Lake’s Jeremy Moore was 5-for-5 in the win.
The Padres scored once in the first inning on an RBI single by Jarrett Hoffpauir after Will Venable singled and stole second base. After scoring in the first, the Padres didn’t have a baserunner reach second until the eighth inning, when Jason Bulger left two Tucson runners on base.
Andy Parrino was 3-for-4 for the Padres, and Hoffpauir, Jesus Guzman and Guillermo Quiroz had two hits each. Aaron Cunningham was 0-for-4, ending an 11 game hitting streak. The Padres bullpen was strong in the lopsided loss, with four different pitchers (Deduno, Munter, Hynes, Perdomo) combining to throw 4.2 innings without allowing an earned run
