A rain delay may have ultimately done in the Padres last night as they dropped the final game of the series in Philadelphia. The game started 55 minutes later than scheduled and Tyson Ross did not look like himself afterwards. He has been stellar of late putting up nine consecutive quality starts and was looking for his tenth when he couldn’t make it out of the first inning.
