SAN DIEGO (AP) --- Cory Spangenberg had a two-run single for his first big
league hit and Tyson Ross pitched six strong innings to lead the San Diego
Padres to a 3-1 victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday.
Spangenberg, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, had his contract
selected from Double-A San Antonio and started at third base. He came up with
the bases loaded and one out in the fifth inning and singled to right off
reliever Eury De La Rosa for a 3-0 lead.
Spangenberg is the third player in Padres history to have multiple RBIs in his
big league debut.
Ross deflected a fifth-inning comebacker by Didi Gregorius with his glove but
stayed in the game. In the sixth, after Ross allowed a leadoff single by David
Peralta, manager Bud Black and a trainer came out to check on the tall
right-hander. Black left Ross in the game. He allowed two more singles,
including an RBI hit by Miguel Montero, before striking out the side.
Ross (13-12) allowed six hits, struck out eight and walked two. It was his 14th
straight start of going six or more innings and allowing six or fewer hits.
He's 7-6 with a 1.93 ERA in that stretch.
Kevin Quackenbush struck out the side in the ninth for his second save in three
Arizona's Trevor Cahill (3-10) went only four-plus innings, allowing three runs
and five hits while walking six and striking out five. He departed after
allowing Yasmani Grandal's single and Jedd Gyorko's double in the fifth.
Arizona: The Diamondbacks reinstated OF Cody Ross (strained left calf) from the
15-day disabled list and RHP Daniel Hudson (reconstructive elbow surgery) from
the 60-day DL. Hudson likely will work in relief. He hasn't pitched for Arizona
since June 26, 2012, when he tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his right
elbow against the Braves.
San Diego: The Padres transferred 1B Yonder Alonso (right wrist surgery) and LF
Carlos Quentin (bone bruise, left knee) to the 60-day DL to make room on the
40-man roster for September callus RHP Leonel Campos and Spangenberg.
Arizona: Wade Miley (7-10, 4.30 ERA) has no record and a 3.86 ERA in two starts
vs. San Diego this year. He is 1-6 with a 4.96 ERA in 11 career starts against
San Diego: Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 2.54 ERA) is 1-1 against Diamondbacks this
year, including a 5-1 loss at Arizona on Aug. 22.
