    PEORIA, AZ - MARCH 11: Manager Bud Black #20 of the San Diego Padres watches from the dugout during the spring training game against the Oakland Athletics at Peoria Stadium on March 11, 2014 in Peoria, Ariz.

    The Padres open the regular season two weeks from Sunday when they host the Dodgers on Sunday Night Baseball.

    The Padres Cactus League record dropped to 6-10 with three ties after losing to Kansas City Sunday 9-6 in ten innings.

    Among the Padres highlights was a fifth inning solo home run by Yonder Alonso.

    Meanwhile, the Padres continued to make roster moves.

    They optioned right-handed pitcher Burch Smith to Triple-A El Paso.

    In addition, the club reassigned C Cody Decker and INF Cory Spangenberg to minor league camp.

    Sunday’s moves leave 43 active players in big league camp.

    The Padres host the Colorado Rockies Monday at 1:05 p.m.
