The Padres continue to be a thorn in the side of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
One night after it appeared Arizona have exercised their demons, San Diego put a beat down on the Snakes, as they defeated Arizona 10-4 on Saturday night.
Wade Miley for second time in his last three starts gave up at least six runs. Miley was unable to pitch past the fourth inning and gave up seven runs and had only one strikeout.
The main reason Miley struggled was that he was struck in the back by a comebacker off the bat of Jedd Gyorko in the fourth inning. The left-hander never seemed to recover.
Arizona came out swinging on offense in the first inning on a two-run homer from Eric Chavez. Paul Goldschmidt hit a single that scored one run in the third inning and Chavez added to his RBI total with a sacrifice fly in the third as well to end the scoring for the D-Backs.
Andrew Cashner didn’t start out well, but settled down as the game continued. He went six innings and allowed nine hits and four runs to grab another win.
The Padres offense erupted for five runs in the fourth inning. For the second straight game, Everth Cabrera showed some power with a two-run homer in the third inning.
The fourth inning saw Yonder Alonso single in a run and then Cashner got a single to plate another run. Chris Denorfia hit a double that scored one and Cabrera hit another double that scored two more runs. The fifth inning saw Nick Hundley single in a pair of runs. Alonso finished off the Friars scoring with hit by pitch in the ninth inning that scored a run.
Arizona will send their ace Patrick Corbin to earn the series victory. He will be opposed by Padres starter Jason Marquis.

HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS
Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy was scratched from his Sunday start after injuring his finger while doing the dishes. Yes, really.
The Diamondbacks' media relations reps, Patrick O'Connell and Casey Wilcox, recently handed out a lined sheet of paper to every player on the team with a very simple request: a list of songs to add to the stadium mix for during batting practice. Straightforward and innocuous enough, right?
Well, nothing is innocuous in the hands of pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who's known...
PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks got good news Thursday in learning that a setback in center fielder Adam Eaton's recovery from a sprained ulnar collateral ligament does not involve structural damage, but the team still wants to be sure its relief is not misplaced.
Eaton said Friday he will get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, the renowned orthopedic surgeon who specializes...
PHOENIX -- The only team in the major leagues not to be shut out this season, the Diamondbacks waited until the seventh inning to extend that streak in a 5-2 victory over the Padres on Friday.
The way it unfolded, it was worth the wait.
Miguel Montero opened the five-run seventh inning with a double, and he scored one pitch later when Martin Prado grounded a doubled inside the...
PHOENIX -- As injuries go, it is not particularly threatening. The explanation probably hurt more. Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy suffered a small laceration on his right index finger when he cut it on a serrated knife blade while doing the dishes Thursday.
But it will force him to miss his scheduled start in the doubleheader against the Rangers on Monday -- the D-backs will...
PHOENIX -- It may be too early to bring it up, but what the heck. Halfway to the All-Star Game, Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin is as good a candidate as any to start for the National League. He has been that good.
Thats a no-brainer, catcher Miguel Montero said of an All-Star invitation.
Hes going to go. I know it is still a long way to go, but hes getting better.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scratched right-handed
starting pitcher Ian Kennedy from today’s start due to a lacerated finger on
his throwing hand, pushing his next appearance back to Friday, according to
Tyler Emerick of MLB.com.
Kennedy suffered the injury while doing the dishes;
specifically while cleaning a knife.
"There's no cool story to it, it...
Have the "Angels in the Outfield" relocated to the east?
The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of the surprises in baseball this season, sitting tied with the reigning World Series champion Giants atop the NL West at 28-22 after Sunday's 6-5 win over San Diego.
The product of a little divine intervention, perhaps? Well, once you see this photo, don't you have to at...
Earlier this week I wrote about Will Venable’s place in the batting order and how his hitting second would most definitely ensure that my soul would settle in purgatory, never reaching the treasure trove of celestial paradise.
But before I wrote that piece on Tuesday morning, I called Craig Elsten of 619 Sports last Sunday morning during the Padres pre-game show. I implored Elsten...
The D-Backs five-run seventh inning was the difference in the series opener. (@DBacks, Twitter)
For awhile, it appeared as if the struggles on offense in Colorado for the Arizona D-Backs had carried over into this game, but like a Phoenix, the Diamondbacks arose from the ashes. They defeated San Diego Padres 5-2 on Friday night.
The streak of consecutive scoreless innings ended for...
Heath Bell tried his little heart out to get to a very slow grounder hit by Will Venable on Friday night, but he fell a bot short. Check out the replay which made me laugh for a good few minutes straight. Good game, good effort.

Brandon McCarthy has self-awareness rarely seen from a professional athlete.
While filling out a sheet with the instructions “Please write down some songs you would like to hear during batting practice,” McCarthy showed off his ever-present sense of humor. Some of the best “songs” he listed were “Kottonmouth Kings’ cover of Angel by Sarah McLachlan,” “Ying Yang Twins...
The San Diego Padres have recalled outfielder Jaff (pronounced ''Jeff'') Decker from Triple-A Tucson and placed center fielder Cameron Maybin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a tear in the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Maybin was hurt Sunday in Colorado and is expected to be out six to 10 weeks. Manager Bud Black says only...
Remember former Chicago White Sox hurler Brandon McCarthy. Who happens to be a pretty funny tweeter. Not just “funny for an athlete” or “humorous by celebrity standards,” but an actually funny guy. You can tell because even his public @replies and RTs are funny too.
But wait till you see his hot model wife. Amanda McCarthy is certainly someone you want to look at. Especially...
Ever wondered who helps program the music at the stadium?
Thankfully for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they've got Brandon McCarthy to help out. When asked for suggestions, the righty responded with the following:

Anything by John Philip Sousa
