The Pirates could do little against Friars starter Mat Latos, who struck out seven batters and walked one in seven innings. Meanwhile, Bucs starter Kevin Correia kept the Pirates in the game for five innings but completely came apart in the sixth, when he suddenly lost his ability to throw strikes. Correia finished with four runs in 5.2 innings, to go with three strikeouts and four walks. The Padres then tacked on three runs against the recently-recalled Brad Lincoln.
Brandon Wood hit a three-run homer in the eighth to make the score look respectable, but this was a pure blowout. The Pirates lost the previous two games in the series 15-5 and 13-2
