  • The Padres would scored two unearned runs off Clayton Kershaw, as after a fly-out to by Rene Rivera the Padres would score on throwing errors by Puig, catcher A.J. Ellis and shortstop Ramirez.

    Odrisamer Despaigne fell to (3-6) on the season, after allowing seven runs on eight hits in only 4.1 innings of work. Despaigne continues to struggle on the road for the Padres. It will be interesting to see how the Padres view Despaigne heading into next season, as he has pitched very well at times and has also struggled mightily (especially on the road) at times this season.

    Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross and Jesse Hahn are obviously locks to be in the rotation next season, which leaves Matt Wisler, Odrisamer Despaigne, Joe Wieland, Robbie Erlin and possibly Casey Kelly and Josh Johnson to battle for the 5th spot in the rotation.
