The Padres were shut out for the third time in four games on Thursday, falling 11-0 to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Starter Odrisamer Despaigne was tagged for eight runs in five innings, including a four-spot in the first inning.
The Padres (15-15) were held to just three hits, including a double each by Derek Norris and Yangervis Solarte. But that was about all D’backs pitcher Rubby De La Rosa allowed in seven scoreless innings.
Mark Trumbo hit a solo homer for Arizona (13-14) in the fateful first and Paul Goldschmidt added another solo shot in the third.
Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso appeared to suffer a right shoulder injury when he fell diving for a ball in the eighth inning. Manager Bud Black said he didn’t know Alonso’s status after the injury.
“No update, we’ll know tomorrow,” Black said. “But he landed on his right shoulder. Jammed it. It’s sore. We’ll have some doctors look at it night, and have some images tomorrow.”
The loss drops the Friars into a second-place tie with the San Francisco Giants, four games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. They play the Diamondbacks again Friday night in Phoenix.
