The final score at Petco Park Tuesday was actually a little bit misleading.
The Orioles led 11-1 after six frames thanks to a seven-run explosion in the 6th inning and wound up winning 11-7.
Morse high school alum Adam Jones only needed to see two pitches from Padres starter Erik Johnson to lace a solo home run over the right-field wall.
It was the first time in his career that the San Diego native led off a game with a homer.
The five-time All-Star immediately put Baltimore in front 1-0, but after that, Melvin Upton Junior hijacked the spotlight for a few innings.
Upton launched a solo shot of his own off on offering by Ubaldo Jimenez in the bottom of the first inning. His blast covered 462 feet and tied the game 1-1.
Upton started in centerfield for the injured Jon Jay - who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a right forearm fracture (retroactive to June 20th).
Jay was seen wearing a camouflage cast over his right wrist and manager Andy Green said he is expected to miss at least four to six weeks.
Expect Travis Jankowski and Poway’s Alex Dickerson (who was called up Tuesday) to see more playing time in the outfield as a result this July.
In the second inning, Upton sprinted to the warning track when J.J Hardy sent a screamer to deep center.
It would have been a two-run homer but Upton reached over the wall to rob Hardy and then proceeded to gun the ball to first base to double up Mark Trumbo.
So in a span of about ten seconds, Upton prevented two runs from scoring and provided an inning-ending double play.
It was a remarkable play that even made it on to Sportscenter's top 10 plays of the evening.
Ladies and gentlemen, we now have at least one entry for the 2016 Padres highlight of the year.
As great as that catch was, the middle innings that followed were rather deflating.
Johnson struggled to keep the ball in the park, as Hyun Soo Kim and Chris Davis homered to give the Orioles a 5-1 lead.
The wheels came off for San Diego in the sixth when Baltimore racked up seven runs to open up a ten-run advantage.
Johnson fell to 0-4 since joining the Padres and allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings.
Wil Myers added a three-run homer in the seventh to give him 18 on the season.
His 11 home runs this month are the most by a Padres player in the month of June in franchise history.
San Diego scratched together three more runs in the ninth on a two-run double by Adam Rosales and a RBI double by Yangervis Solarte.
The rematch is Wednesday in a 12:40 p.m. matinee. Christian Friedrich takes the mound for San Diego and opposes Baltimore’s Yovani Gallardo.
