Andy Parrino began the scoring with an RBI single to right field followed by back-to-back sacrifice flies by Gyorko and Matt Clark. Rocky Gale put Tucson ahead 4-3 in the fourth inning when he hit a RBI double over the left fielder’s head. Daniel Robertson scored Gale on a triple to right field and Parrino brought home Robertson on an RBI single to give the Padres a 6-3 lead. Robertson finished the night with four hits and three runs scored, falling a home run shy of a cycle.

Tucson scored once more in the fifth on another RBI double by Gale. In the eighth inning the Padres scored three runs highlighted by Gyorko’s 24th home run of the season over the left field wall.
