The Padres scored two runs in the second inning and didn't look back, tacking on three more in the fourth and six more in the seventh, thanks to numerous perfectly-placed balls, poor defense by Ronny Cedeno, and a grand slam off Chris Resop by Kyle Blanks.
Meanwhile, Padres starter Cory Luebke breezed through the Pirates lineup, striking out nine batters in seven innings. The Pirates struck out a total of 11 times on the game and did not walk once.
In the late innings, after the game had already been lost, Cedeno failed to field a ground ball, appearing to not bend down for it. He and Clint Hurdle then had a spirited conversation about it in the dugout. It would not be surprising if Cedeno were benched for Sunday's game.
