Houston Astros Defeat San Diego Padres, 14-3

The Houston Astros feasted on Padres pitching for a second straight night, racking up 17 hits in an ugly 14-3 win at Petco Park on Tuesday.

They got to Tyson Ross early, tagging the Friars starter for four runs in five innings. That included a first-inning two-run home run by Evan Gattis that went off the glove of Padres center fielder Wil Myers.

Myers got his revenge in the fifth, launching his fourth homer of the season in the fifth inning. Justin Upton added his sixth long ball of the year in the sixth.

But it wasn’t enough, as the Astros scored 10 runs off three Padres relievers.

The teams play an afternoon game on Wednesday, starting at 12:40 p.m. at Petco Park.
