Former Padre Sinks Old Club

Ryan Ludwick's 4-RBI's paced the Reds in their 7-6 win over the Padres

On the day of baseball's trade deadline the Padres were quiet, making no moves. Their bats were silent in Cincinnati as well until the fourth inning. Trailing 6-0, the Padres sent eleven batters to the plate. Six runs later the game was tied. Cameron Maybin had the big blast, a three run shot off Reds starter Homer Bailey. Chase Headley, still a Padre, added an RBI single in the inning to tie the game at six.

With the score all square in the seventh Padres starter Jason Marquis made a big mistake to Brandon Phillips. His solo shot broke the tie. Marquis (4-7) took the loss. The Reds, who had won ten in a row before Monday's loss, held on to win it 7-6.

The Padres ended the month of July with a very respectable 15-11 record.
