Grand Slam Fuels Padres to Drama Free Win Over Texas

Wil Myers' first inning grand slam was his first since the Padres' outfielder's career home run.

Another day, another grand slam, another win.

This time it came with a little less drama.

Wil Myers hit a grand slam in the first inning, sending the Padres on their way to a 6-4 win over the Rangers. The slam was Myers' first since his first career home run, which came in 2013 for the Rays.

Jurickson Profar added a two-run blast in the fourth inning.

Texas didn't go without a fight. Luis Patino got out of a bases loaded jam after issuing three walks in the sixth inning. Emilio Pagan backed up Drew Pomeranz and got the final two outs of the eighth inning. After giving up a single and a walk, Cal Quantrill entered the game to get the final out and his first career save.

The win allows the team to end its nine game road trip with back-to-back victories. After dropping five straight games, and dropping below .500 for the first time this season the Padres are 13-12.

They continue their series with the Rangers with two straight at Petco Park, to start an eight game homestand.
