    Padres edge D-backs with speed, small

    ball By Corey Brock and Steve Gilbert / MLB.com | 3:10 AM ET

    SAN DIEGO -- Tyson Ross overcame command issues and a shaky start Friday night as the Padres edged

    the D-backs, 4-2, at Petco Park.

    Ross (5-7) walked five of the first 11 batters, but settled down thereafter, retiring nine of the final 10

    batters he faced. He allowed two hits in six innings, striking out seven.

    Arizona pitcher Robbie Ray (2-3) allowed two earned runs over six innings with no walks and five

    strikeouts.

    "His stuff was very good," D-backs manager Chip Hale said of Ray. "He threw his offspeed pitch more,

    threw his breaking ball and changeup, which was impressive, his fastball was electric again."

    MOMENTS THAT MATTERED

    Better than it looks: Given his other numbers, Ray probably deserves a better record than 2-3, and he

    could easily have had a better outcome Friday. The D-backs committed a pair of errors behind him, one of

    which led to an unearned run, and three errors overall. Ray didn't get much help from an offense that

    managed just two hits. More >

    "You never see that on our linescore very often," Hale said of the error total. "Just didn't play the defense

    that we're used to playing. We're usually tighter than that."

    Speed kills: Padres second baseman Cory Spangenberg used his wheels to create a run in the third inning. He stole third base and scored on a throwing error. In the fifth inning, he beat out an infield single, stole second base and eventually scored.

    Driving them in: After Ross walked the bases loaded in the third it seemed he might be able to

    wiggle out of the jam with no damage. But with two outs, Paul Goldschmidt worked the count full

    and grounded a single back up the middle to score a pair of runs to give him 62 RBIs on the

    year.

    Settling down: Ross was shaky early but got on a roll in the fourth inning when he struck out the

    side. He got leadoff hitter A.J. Pollock to bounce into a big double play in the fifth inning.More >

    "I just had trouble repeating my delivery and I was a little inconsistent with my release point,"

    Ross said of his early struggles, which led to two runs in the third inning. "They [D-backs] had a

    great, patient approach and I got myself into some trouble early on."

    QUOTABLE

    "He's a pro. He doesn't break down. He's tough. This kid is mentally tough. He is bright too. So,

    you got courageous and bright. They work through those things. He knows if I want to stay out

    here and keep doing what I am doing - I can't let this get the best of me." -- Padres interim

    manager Pat Murphy on Ross

    SOUND SMART WITH YOUR FRIENDS

    The first inning continues to be bountiful for the Padres, who got one run on Friday. They have

    now scored 52 first-inning runs this season. That's the most runs in any one particular inning

    they've scored this season.

    REPLAY REVIEW

    The D-backs contested a stolen base by Spangenberg in the fifth inning on Friday, after he was

    ruled safe after a strong throw by Arizona catcher Welington Castillo. A review determined the

    call would stand. In the seventh inning, Spangenberg was awarded an infield hit after a call was overturned on a ground ball to third baseman Jake Lamb.

    WHAT'S NEXT

    D-backs: Jeremy Hellickson will get the start for the D-backs on Saturday night at 7:10 p.m. PT

    at Petco Park, his second straight start against the Padres. Last time he allowed just two runs

    over six innings in a 7-2 win at Chase Field.

    Padres: Andrew Cashner (2-9, 4.35) will get the start in the second game of the three-game

    series. This will be his fourth start against the D-backs. He's fared well, too. Cashner has a 2.65

    ERA in his three previous starts.

    Ross shakes off early troubles to finish

    strong Padres starter walks five, but retires nine of last 10

    batters he faces

    By Corey Brock / MLB.com | @FollowThePadres | 2:09 AM ET

    SAN DIEGO -- It certainly wasn't the smoothest of starts Friday for Padres' pitcher Tyson Ross.

    But Ross had no issues at all with the way he was able to finish his night against the D-backs in the

    Padres' 4-2 win at Petco Park.

    Ross retired nine of the final 10 batters he faced and overcome a rough beginning.

    Ross, who six days ago had a complete-game victory over these same D-backs, struggled with his

    command, walking five of the first 11 batters.

    "I just had trouble repeating my delivery and I was a little inconsistent with my release point," Ross said

    of his early struggles, ones that led to two runs in the third inning.

    "They [D-backs] had a great, patient approach and I got myself into some trouble early on."

    The D-backs took three of those five walks in that two-run third inning and Paul Goldschmidt made

    Ross pay with a full count, two-run single with two outs in the inning.

    In between innings, Ross huddled with pitching coach Darren Balsley to work on remedying a few

    mechanical flaws.

    "Darren gave me some good advice, I made an in-game adjustment and finished strong," Ross said. "He's

    got the time to come in and look at video and I trust him fully. He's got the perfect tip on what I need to

    do and get back on track.

    "In-game, it's a word or two from Bals that gets me back on track."

    Ross finished fast, striking out the side in the fourth inning and getting a big double-play ball to end the

    fifth. He retired all three hitters he faced in the sixth inning before turning the game over to the bullpen.

    Ross allowed two hits, two runs, walked five and struck out seven. His ERA is now 3.57.

    "He's a pro. He doesn't break down. He's tough. This kid is mentally tough. He is bright too. So,

    you got courageous and bright," Padres interim manager Pat Murphy said of Ross. "They work

    through those things. He knows if I want to stay out here and keep doing what I am doing -- I

    can't let this get the best of me."

    Worth noting

    • After the game, Murphy said that pitcher Josh Johnson -- attempting to come back from Tommy

    John surgery last year -- had an MRI done recently on his repaired ulnar collateral ligament that,

    because of the revision (surgery) was inconclusive. Murphy noted that Johnson will resume

    throwing soon. He had to stop a simulated game on June 15 because of tingling in the fingers

    on his right hand.

    Spangenberg manufactures runs with

    wheels Padres second baseman legs out two infield hits, steals two

    bases

    By Corey Brock / MLB.com | @FollowThePadres | 2:09 AM ET

    SAN DIEGO -- Cory Spangenberg possess the one skillset the Padres don't have an abundance of --

    speed.

    On Friday, the Padres' second baseman utilized iest in the best way possible, helping his team run to a 4-2

    victory over the D-backs at Petco Park.

    Spangenberg had three hits, two of the infield variety, stole two bases and scored two runs as the Padres

    opened a five-game homestand.

    "When things aren't going as well as you want, you got to find ways to win," Spangenberg said.

    In the third inning, and with the Padres trailing 2-1, Spangenberg began the inning with a single to left

    field. He moved to seco
