    Tyson Ross has been the best pitcher on a very good Padres rotation for much of the first half of the season. He was rewarded for his efforts with a spot in next week’s All-Star Game.

    It’s the first All-Star selection for Ross, who has a 7-8 record with a 2.93 ERA  and 111 strikeouts this season.

    Ross threw a three-hit shutout on Wednesday as the Padres completed a three-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds with a 3-0 victory. It was his first career shutout. He has 10 starts this season with at least seven innings pitched and two or fewer earned runs allowed.

    That includes four consecutive starts in May where he threw exactly seven innings and allowed just one run each time out.

    Ross has fallen victim of some of the worst run support in baseball this season. In his five June starts, the Padres scored a grand total of one run while he was pitching – and that was driven in by a Ross sacrifice fly. He lost four of those five starts.

    Ross was the lone Padres selection for the All-Star Game, which will be played on July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minn.
